Trauma can suddenly be encountered in our lives. This can impede our lives so seriously that we lose perspective. The fact that violent events do occur in our society has a serious impact on the well being of people – in fact the treatment of victims after trauma is a proven way off improving the functioning.

Tienie is an experienced psychotherapist in dealing with victims of trauma. Trauma is a very “up-close-and –personal” experience most of the time and requires sensitivity and skill to move forward.

Tienie delivers psychotherapeutic services in hospitals with patients in distress/ and under duress. Where trauma is encountered within the framework of serious illnesses, Tienie delivers psychosocial services to patients and families.

Facets of Psychotherapy after trauma:

  • Creation of safety
  • Working through the trauma
  • The identification and treatment of co-morbidity
  • Resolving conflicts and forgiveness.
  • Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome
