Why donate to the Centre for Abuse and Trauma Therapy?
Trauma holds people back from experiencing their full potential. It can lead to addiction, other dangerous behaviours, poverty, and an adult life also centered in abuse.
Through counseling and healing, people are able to deal with these traumas, learn coping techniques and recover. This allows people to more easily become educated, employable and bigger contributors to society. It also ends generational abuse cycles by enabling better parenting and relationship building skills.
Some of the tangible benefits of recovery are higher self-esteem, improved relationships, increased ability to understand, express and release emotions, relief from physical symptoms, staying grounded and in the present, a greater sense of control, heightened self-awareness, self-discovery, improved sexuality and greater peace of mind.
When you donate to the Centre, you are helping people to recover from past traumas and abuse and live more productive lives.
“Your past, nor present circumstances do not determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” ~ Nido Qubein
Appropriate therapy, often lasting years, can help survivors of all kinds of trauma and abuse, not only surviving but also thriving. Please join us in helping these heroic individuals. Your donation will help those who need therapy but may not be able to afford it. We offer a sliding scale fee structure, however, in situations of someone fleeing domestic violence, funds may not be accessible if money was controlled by the abuser.
