Trauma-informed therapy is not about a specific modality or intervention but rather tailoring interventions in the context of the individual’s trauma history, triggers, and specific needs. It is a lens through which the therapist views their clients, taking into account the impact of trauma on emotions, regulation, and behaviour. They will also consider the effects of intergenerational trauma on clients. Trauma-informed therapy shifts the focus from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?


Trauma-informed therapists emphasize the following areas in their practice:

  1. Physical and emotional safety. A trauma-informed therapist will take steps to ensure you feel both physically and emotionally safe in your sessions.

  2. Collaboration. Trauma-informed therapists aim to empower you by educating you about your options and giving you an active role in your care.

  3. Transparency. Trauma-informed therapists are open and honest with you.

  4. Competency. Trauma-informed therapists make sure that they are educated and up-to-date in research and best practices for working with you who have experienced trauma. They are also aware of the unique cultural considerations that each client experiences.
