Complex Ptsd, the result of Adverse Childhood Experiences, can affect many areas of our adult life. As adults, we can experience a decline in our health unresolved trauma, stress at work, unmanageable stress at home and relationships falling apart no matter how hard we tried to remain together. Our mask is permanently in place with our external world and separates us and others from our internal world.
The answers to "Who am I" or "Why am I here" go left unanswered.
Add to these stressors the overwhelming thoughts and emotions, the always present threats of anxiety attacks and depression, along with an the ever present fear that we stuff down behind our masks. Combine all of this with the hidden, internal, deep pressure and we find ourselves daily pondering how we're going to place one foot in front of the other.
At night we don't sleep, we question why can't I just feel alive? Feelings of guilt and shame implode under pressure and we wonder how we could do things differently? The answer is we can't, not yet. Our childhood has impacting our brain so deeply that we need help for the recovery to remission path.
The decision to begin recovery and aim for remission rests with us.
The Recovery to Remission path from Childhood Trauma takes courage. I won't lie to you, many choose not to pursue the path. Why is it challenging?
It's challenging for a few reasons. Firstly, we haven't had language around what is happening to us internally. Secondly, we've never experienced our parent/caregivers/family taking care of us in a healthy manner. Thirdly, our brain has been programmed for safety and we need to discover how to work with our brain, breath and body to create new neural pathways.
Where can I start?
If you aren't quite ready for a one on one consultation check out my YouTube page for videos with down to earth information and practical tips. It's a great place to begin understanding what happened to you internally and where to from here.
Next, head over to the Complex Ptsd group I run. You'll discover an ultra-safe environment with people learning just like you PLUS we'll be your cheer squad throughout your journey. You'll find me in the group daily Monday - Friday and you'll be able to determine if you're ready to work with me. Also available are Client Reviews from people who have worked with me.
What happens in a Consultation?
Your initial consultation is an intake session combined with a strategy session for the next week. I have legal requirements as a professional I need to meet plus your history helps unpack where you are today.
We Do Not go back over the past in any depth. Doing so is counterproductive with Complex Ptsd and has the potential to retraumatise you. You are already reliving the trauma every day in your body, therefore, you do not need to revisit any trauma.
Complex Trauma Coaching is to equip you with tools, educate you with language and personal understanding and encourage you to take the next one step with the education and equipping. I will be your placeholder as you recover.
At the end of the session we devise a new strategy for what you need in your life now, you record the strategy and take the strategic steps in between the consultations.
Can you work with a therapist and a coach at the same time? Yes, and you can also include your therapy and coaching with other practitioners also. I have a number of clients who work with their therapist and with me, and the results are highly effective.
How often are my appointments? Depending on where you are in recovery will be the determining factor. Most clients work with me weekly to get into the rhythm and then drop back to fortnightly when they're ready. You will know exactly what you need and I will support your decisions.
Am I ready for Trauma Coaching? The answer lies in are you determined to become alive and unpack your authentic self and are you stable? Most of my clients find me when they've tried everything else and it hasn't worked. More often than not clients have spent many years in therapy and are fed up with minimal to no progress. Others have spent years in recovery believing that's all that life will hold for them.
Feel welcome to discuss what you need with me via my FB Messenger. You'll find I never push anyone due to years of experience. When you're ready you're ready, so it's safe to have a chat with me.
How long does Recovery take? I can't be specific here as Complex Trauma is an individual journey needing to take into account many different factors, for example, the stage of recovery you are at today. I can guarantee your hard work combined with coaching produces results you can see rapidly. How? I've lived it, literally. Everything I teach you and have you experience in your day to day life I know works because I've tried it out effectively.
