Trauma and PTSD – Dr David Wells

Dr David Wells      Quals: B Psych (Hons), Dip Prof Couns, D Psych (Clin Geropsychology).

Trauma and PTSD: Many people go through traumas in their lives. Sometimes these traumas are processed by our minds and are coped with, but at other times when processed they turn into PTSD. Talking about these traumas is important to assist with coping better with those incidents.

Counselling approach: David has been trained by the Australian Centre for Posttraumatic Health and has counselled many clients with PTSD. It always needs to be recognised that clients need to go at their own pace, and will have bad days as well as the good. Listening is an essential skill when helping clients deal with their traumatic incidents.

Anger Management – Dr David Wells

Dr David Wells      Quals: B Psych (Hons), Dip Prof Couns, D Psych (Clin Geropsychology).

Anger Management: Anger is normal, but sometimes the behaviours that go with that anger are damaging to ourselves, others or property. It is these wrong behaviours that we seek to alter in anger management.

Counselling Approach: Awareness and the earnest desire to change are important factors in anger management. It is about learning to behave in the way that we want to behave, not the way we behave by default. The key is: STOP – Think – Then do or speak; and by thinking can we soften the response to the situation that has made us angry.
