Psychotherapy and counselling for members of Veteran Affairs (VAC) Psychologist at ARCH are Registered providers of psychotherapy and counselling for military veterans, making them able to directly bill for servies provided to clients who are members of Veteran Affairs (VAC) . Whether in the military or as a civilian, at some point during our lives many of us will experience a traumatic event that will challenge our view of the world or ourselves. Depending upon a range of factors, some people's reactions may last for just a short period of time, while others may experience more long-lasting effects. Why some people are affected more than others has no simple answer. In Canada, it is estimated that up to 10% of war zone Veterans—including war- service Veterans and peacekeeping forces—will go on to experience a chronic condition known as Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), while others may experience at least some of the symptoms associated with this condition. Obtaining appropriate treatment for PTSD is not always as straightforward as one might think. First, the person has to accept that there is something wrong and see the benefit of seeking help. Getting help is often frightening– for many, it is a leap into the unknown but without this first step, progress is not possible. Secondly, it is not always easy to find a professional who understands PTSD and to whom you can relate and trust. At ARCH we have a number of Psychologists who can assist person at their healing journey.
In addition to psychotherapy and counselling for members of VAC, ARCH Psychologists are registered providers of psychotherapy and counselling to Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) and Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) .

However, some groups of people are more exposed to intense traumatic events, such as military and police officers. In accordance, they are likely to suffer from this condition and both prevention and intervention is imporant and necessary to ensure physical and mental health well-being of people in these groups.
