At Sarva Psychotherapy and Wellness we believe that optimal healing and recovery occurs when the needs of the ‘whole’ person are met. Sarva is an ancient Sanskrit word that means “all or whole”. As human beings, we strive to maintain harmony and balance in our lives so we can be “whole and complete”. However, Life routinely throws us challenges and as we struggle with the ensuing adversity and pain, we find our paths have become unclear and our equilibrium is shattered. These challenges can be very traumatic and may have a tremendous impact on our physical and mental health. “Trauma is not just the event that took place sometime in the past; it is the imprint left by that experience on mind, brain and body. Trauma results in a fundamental reorganization of the way mind and brain manage perceptions. It changes not only how we think and what we think about but also our very capacity to think “ - Bessel van der Kolk 2014, p 21.
Trauma creates change you do not choose. Healing is about change you do choose. Here at Sarva Psychotherapy and Wellness, we will empower you to find your balance by offering you the support you need to be ‘whole’ again. Being a trauma informed practice means that we are very conscious of your need to be safe, to be able to trust, be seen and heard, and to be empowered to make the choices you need to move towards healing and recovery. We will walk beside you, hold your space, and witness the changes you make at every step you choose to take on your healing journey. The Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu often remarked “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”. So, if you are ready to take that first step, we are here to help you.
