Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE)

There are three types of ACE:

1.

2.

3.

Abuse

(physical, emotional, sexual)

Neglect

(emotional or physical)

Household Dysfunction

(mental illness, parent treated with violence, relative in prison, substance abuse, divorce or separation)

These situations don’t predict ACE as a compassionate family member or mentor can mitigate these experiences. A question I ask clients “When you were young did you have an adult you could trust and talk to?”

ACE occurs due to issues within family, community or the environment. It reduces the HSP’s ability to learn how to express themselves and deal with stress in a positive way.

If you're looking for counselling for HSP and/or ACE, I offer remote sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please get in contact using the details below.
