I've worked in community-based programs providing trauma counselling to women exiting violence, abuse, and exploitation.
Sometimes, life can be so painful that we do our best to shut things out to make it through the next little while. We disconnect from ourselves because, in a way, it is adaptive. We power through work, school and social functions if we shut our feelings away. However, pushing our feelings away is a temporary solution and that pain continues to wiggle through finding a way to the surface once again. Counselling can help you connect with yourself again so you can identify and attend to your own needs.

I support people facing grief, past trauma, abuse, relationship challenges, depression, and addiction, to develop greater insight and better coping strategies for healing. Grief is a process that clients sometimes find themselves "stuck" in. Often old coping strategies are no longer serving them. Developing relational intimacy with others, and more compassionate communication with self is integral to my work with individuals and family. Together we find solutions for healing and moving through difficult challenges, while also improving well-being so clients can connect with their most authentic selves.

First off, I want to commend you for the courage you've shown to seek help. My name is Jackie Armour and I am passionate about helping people recover. My experience has shown me that most people struggling with addiction have a history of emotional loss, neglect, or trauma that often operates on a subconscious level. It is our natural impulse to try to ease that pain through addictive substances or behaviors. As a therapist I can help you discover peace within yourself so that you no longer desire to act on your addiction. I want to see you become the best version of yourself and live up to your true potential.

The effects of trauma are many, and can feel overwhelming and unbearable. If you are experiencing post-traumatic stress responses such as, anxiety, depression, unhealthy or abusive relationships, substance misuse, self-harm or suicidal ideation, you are not alone. Many mental health symptoms are automatic responses and attempts to cope with trauma. These adaptations don't always serve us in the best way. When trauma can't be processed in the moment, it is often held in the body and we can become "stuck". A Somatic approach to counselling may help you move forward and heal from the effects of trauma in an embodied way.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for a Victoria domestic abuse or domestic violence counsellor, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counselling in Victoria.
