Hey, everyone! Just wanted to encourage anyone who has not tried Linda's coaching program, it's awesome! I've been in therapy for CPTSD for months (most of which I spent in denial, since December 5th). Within the first week of coaching with Linda, my super-high level of hypervigilance I was operating at- it was actually reduced by such a significant amount that I was finally able to recognize times when I was dissociating. The work, for me, (which is highly individualized) has been challenging, at times because it requires me to explore my feelings (that I hate to do). But, it is so awesome for me to testify that Linda helped me to grow in 1 week that I spent months in therapy unable to accomplish. Now, my relationship with my therapist is much more...um, for lack of a better word, therapeutic. I haven't ticked off that poor lady in weeks! If you've reached that point in your life and you're ready to do the work, I encourage you to go for it! It is so worth it!

Linda I have to tell you I have been in Complex PTSD therapy and an intensive therapy like hospital IOP which in the States is intensive outpatient. I always refuse to go inpatient because my colleagues would know I was there as I was a high level nurse in the hospital and everyone knew me. When I was working and everything was hidden away in my brain from my childhood I was making way over six figures and I spent over $20,000 out of pocket back then trying to get the best help I could but it didn't work. That was in addition to my insurance which was high level.
I have been in therapy for over 20 years and I have to tell you...you are the first person who has given me hope... For a normal life and being triggered is not the end of the world. I wanted to thank you for all you do. I am so blessed to have met you because you've really helped me. I am slowly becoming the person I always hoped I could be.
Much love and heartfelt appreciation.

I was in another recovery program for 37 years but there was a big part of recovery that I still needed. It wasn’t available until six years ago. I didn’t find it until I was diagnosed with cptsd last year. I joined this group the beginning part of this year. I tend to walk my path in my own time frame. I think we all do.
Well, it has turned out to be just what I needed to open the door for me to finally heal. It would take everything I had within me to do the work I would need to do.
I soon found out I had joined a group created by a woman who was determined to fight for her life in spite of the obstacles she had to overcome. I was about to embark on a new beginning that would uncover my authentic self. I not only joined the group but I joined the Trauma Informed Movement program that was just starting up. Again, I was unaware that this program would not only change me from the inside out but it would change how I lived and navigated my entire life.
Remember, I had already been in recovery for 36 years at the time. So with that in mind, I decided to make a commitment to myself to do this and follow through with it like I had done in the other recovery program. I continued watching Linda do the work and share her struggles and accomplishments with the group and that motivated me to do the same. Before long I began changing in ways I never thought possible. I kept paying attention and following direction struggling myself but also having positive results even though I’m sure it wasn’t apparent at first.
It wasn’t easy and I had a lot of work to do to get the results I was a witness to everyday. It is true that it does work if you work it. I still have much to learn but such is life. Everyday is a process of taking in information and using what works and discarding what doesn’t. I’m definitely a work in progress today and I’m not done with me. I can’t do this by myself. I will always need the love and support from the people who have been where I have. Those who have gone before me, those who walk beside me and those who need me to be an example to become a better version of themselves. I can say today that I am happy and have experienced joy even though I’ve been through the darkest times anyone should ever have to face. It’s been worth the effort.

Before I met Linda my life was at such a low point. I didn't know where to turn or what to do. I had tried Therapists and it was like being on a Merry-Go-Round. Nothing was changing so I refused to go anymore. I was on a wait list for DBT but my Mum found Linda and after working with her my life is now happy, bright and I enjoy every day.
I went from being anxious and depressed alone at home, to joining a local choir, joining the St. John Ambulance to train for helping at Concerts, being able to help my mum at home and best of all I now have a beautiful relationship.
Thank you so much Linda! You truly were sent into my life by God! I will forever be thankful to you!

Today I got triggered. AND, thanks to Linda Meredith's amazing course I was able to get a huge understanding of what I'm going through and deal with it so that my negative feelings don't linger much longer.
This awareness is priceless.
She is a solid coach and I highly recommend her courses and one on one coaching to whoever wants to deal with their challenge.
Truly, thank you Linda.

Guys, Its been a few weeks since I have learned of Complex PTSD. Things are changing and I am gaining control of my life. Since then I have shared this with some family members only to have them question me and my "self diagnosis" or this therapist I found online. Also My trainer doesn't believe it. I'm guessing its going to continue like this. And that's okay. They don't get it. They are not seeing my huge growth. It's new for them and they have never heard of it, never experienced it and know little to nothing about it.
The mere mention of PTSD freaks them out. I'm sure they think PTSD is only for army veterans.
When I got triggered during an intensive workout with my trainer, I told him I can't breath deeply and he was skeptical. He said it's normal and it's hard to breath because of the exercise. One true true thing about it that I learned from Linda Meredith's Depression course Is that Complex PTSD is often mistaken with other symptoms or mental issues like bipolar, ADD etc...
Eventually he had to accept it because I was calmly insisting after all breath shortness has passed. I will do the same with my family and friends.
Guys, I am just so grateful I have the tools now and that's all that matters. Now I wake up with energy and a clear mind. I have the tools to deal with it. When triggered, I can take action and that's priceless!
Linda, I can't thank you enough.

I just thought there was no hope for me. For the first time I have some hope because of your courses. I'm so grateful I found you because I've had Complex Ptsd for over 30 years. I'm in the medical field and over 30 years of therapy has not helped. I find your methodology helping me more than anything I've ever tried, so thank you!

Having spent between 8 - 10 years living and working out of my bedroom (my business is online) and finding myself overwhelmed with anxiety and depression I was lonely and miserable. I had no social life, no friends apart from work colleagues, and leaving my bedroom was almost impossible. Within 8 weeks working with Linda 80% of my depression had gone, I attended my first solo social event, and made a friend."
I.V. Florida, USA
Thank you so much for posting, I've learned more from 25 minutes of this woman than all the years of therapy that I've had combined, since diagnosis. I went through a 6 week program on PTSD, did nothing. No, that's not true, it confused me even more. Made it worse in a way. I am obsessed enough about my recovery that I was able to maintain my attention until the end and understand what you were saying! (I also suffer ADHD). I have no doubts my recovery will be going a lot faster now because of you! I've saved your video and plan to watch it a few more times. Your analogies were perfect in explanation, for me. So, thank you again."

Yours is an entirely new concept specifically designed for CPtsd. It also shows me logically how I am the master of my life. That I have the power to create my own road map of recovery to remission. The process is structured and manageable. It gives me strength and confidence knowing I am the master of my life. Thank you for choosing to share all that you do and are with us.

Linda is such an inspirational lady. She has helped my daughter who has Complex PTSD so much and she is truly on the road to recovery. I wholeheartedly recommend Linda as not only does she do trauma Coaching as a job but has also journey this road herself and she "totally gets it" (understands the road ahead). Thank you Linda xxx

Thank you for being the incredible human you are by helping others the way you do! I couldn’t have got through the last year without your pages to guide me and help me understand trauma responses. You're an earth angel.

Linda is an excellent trauma recovery coach and she will have you feeling better after you talk with her. Her understanding of Complex Trauma and strategies have me now enjoying my life, I have less triggers, and I'm achieving my dreams of study anxiety free.
M.K. London, England
"Linda is not only patient and caring but she approaches the whole mental health with grace. She makes you feel validated, that you have worth. I wish I had her when I was a teen because she’s exactly who I’ve been looking for my entire life to reach out to. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for help. She helps find resources for you as well, which is huge. Know that you are not alone.

"Linda is a wonderful person who knows what she is doing. When I first started my journey with her two and half years ago I was so crippled with anxiety and fear and unable to leave my house alone. Just to even step out onto the porch I was crippled with fear and having anxiety attacks.
Now I am able to do almost anything I want and even though I still have some anxiety I know how to cope with it. Linda has given me the tools and strategies and more importantly has taught me to believe that I can do anything I want to do. Linda has and is always there for me and she will be there for you too."
J.L. Illinois, U.S.
"Linda is absolutely brilliant!! She helps you look at what is going on in your life from a viewpoint that makes you realize you can tackle the issue at hand. She is always there to lend an ear and give positive feedback. She is a true asset to all of those that have come to know her."
L.H. Florida, U.S.
"You were more helpful than the therapist my ex-husband and I went to years ago before we divorced. Thank you so much for this!"
D.C. New Jersey, U.S.
"Linda is great at challenging me to stretch and grow. This year I have done some driving trips in spite of anxiety and really benefited from overcoming. She has good insights as to what our subconscious mind is dealing with and is a great encourager."
K.M. NSW, Australia
"I live in Illinois, USA and I have been in contact with Linda as a therapist via Zoom for three weeks now and she is wonderful. I would have never dreamed of finding someone literally clear across the other side of the globe from me, but I have, and it has been so great.
I can honestly say that I feel better after talking with Linda. Keep doing a great job and being the wonderful person you are."
D.F. Illinois, U.S.
"Linda is a fantastic person and easy to talk to and the others in the group are gorgeous people. So if you ever feel you need to talk to someone this is the place to go and there is no judgement whatsoever so please don't hesitate."

YouTube Channel Reviews:
Liza Field: "When i first listened to one of these videos a few months back, it didn't resonate, but I felt something about your experience & heroic kindness was "sent." A video would pop up & there was a gravitational-like pull, as when it feels God is directing me. Now I feel such relief & peace-healing in each video I hear. It's like a good cup of tea when cold, a childhood friend, a Rumi poem, a sunshine patch in the forest, spring water when thirsty...I cannot thank you enough! "I had only looked around at youtube, & this was 2 years ago. Also some things on "the family scapegoat" that are helpful. You & Lisa Romano & Les Carter are among the really good resources for getting one's own life & freedom back."
Linda, I’m learning through your sharing personal and professional information on Complex trauma. Thanks to watching you this morning (March 29, 9.50 am), I’ve been able to really connect to my and my mom’s past and I’ve made such a huge understanding of my personal default mode ... this knowledge is helping me heal at such a deep level. I am also so happy to be living with my elderly open minded mother. Eager to share your recent videos with her and my soul sister...
"Your videos have been very insightful and helpful to me. Thank you so much Linda for all the helpful advice and suggestions that you give out. I'm trying to implement bit by bit."
"I didn't realize a lot more goes into dissociation symptom-wise! This made a lot of things click more for me, thanks for making this video."
"This was so phenomenal I had to listen twice!😁 Very informative thank you!🤗"
"This was so profound. I understand it may sound silly to some. However for me it was so validating. Sometimes it is so difficult to even remember to breathe, much less process the emotions. I've had to look back for answers I couldn't find in the moment. I understand why and I'm gentle with myself. However listening to your clip I felt such a deep compassion and weird comfort that I'm not alone. Thank you for sharing and being so vulnerable. Sending love and gratitude."
"thank you, something new to put into practice."
"This is my first time seeing you, great good I appreciate how you explain. And your glowing personality!"
