Move Forward Counselling/Amy Babcock
"Intergenerational or multi-generational trauma happens when the effects of trauma are not resolved in one generation. When trauma is ignored and there is no support for dealing with it, the trauma will be passed from one generation to the next...
The unhealthy ways of behaving that people use to protect themselves can be passed on... without them even knowing they are doing so"
- Aboriginal Healing Foundation, 1999.
Free Mental Health Counselling for First Nations
As an approved NIHB Provider, I can provide mental health counselling at no cost to you if you are eligible for NIHB. In order to qualify for NIHB, you must be a 'Registered Indian' according to the Indian Act. NIHB grants access to 15 sessions of mental health counselling for eligible individuals (ie: those with a status card/number). If more counselling is needed, more sessions can be applied for. Please be in touch with me if you think you qualify for support under NIHB. I can provide further information about access to my service and can complete all necessary forms. NIHB offers a wonderful opportunity to access support from a qualified counsellor/therapist who has been deemed an Approved Provider. Central to my counselling practices are a foundation of deep respect and appreciation for Aboriginal cultural and history.
