Post Abortion Grief Counselling.
If you or someone you know has had an abortion, recently or years ago, they may be facing difficult emotions and challenges. We are a safe place for healing support.
Contact us to find out more if you or someone you care about is experiencing one or more of these symptoms:
• Compulsion to conceal an abortion
• Low self-esteem
• Emotional numbness
• Prolonged grief/frequent crying
• Anniversary grief
• Suicidal thoughts
• Nightmares or flashbacks
• Self-destructive behaviour
• Alcohol or drug abuse
• Relationship avoidance or struggles with intimacy
• Physical and emotional reaction at the mention of abortion
• Anxiety over fertility and childbearing issues
Some react to abortion with relief while others may experience negative emotions. Some feelings display immediately, others may occur years later. Some behaviours may not appear to be associated with the abortion at all. Recent research demonstrates that abortion can be responsible for longterm emotional disturbances, referred to as Post Abortion Stress.
Women who seek Post Abortion Recovery counselling wish to resolve feelings of guilt, anxiety and depression. They may have secondary symptoms such as addictions, eating disorders, self harm, anniversary syndrome, inability to feel forgiven by God, preoccupation with becoming pregnant again and interruption of bonding with own children.
If abortion is still on your mind and heart, no matter how long ago it happened, we would like to help you heal and move on to a happier future. Our trained and experienced post-abortion peer counsellors can help you. Our Post-Abortion Recovery program can help you move from pain and loss to closure of your abortion experience. Since abortion trauma can affect entire families, our counselling service makes it possible to have hope for the future of your whole family.
Contact us to schedule an appointment with a trained post-abortion peer counsellor. All calls and counselling are free and confidential. Our Post-Abortion Recovery Program is an eight week individual program.
