When childhood trauma is still present in your adult life

Support to untangle years of confusion and turmoil to create healthy practices

Have you noticed how the past doesn't always stay where it should? Childhood trauma or emotional wounding shows up in many ways and can be incredibly draining. 

The effects of unresolved trauma can be devastating. It can affect our habits and outlook on life, leading to addictions and poor decision-making. It can take a toll on our family life and all our relationships. It can trigger real physical pain, symptoms, and disease. Or it can lead to a range of self destructive behaviours.

This is a space for you to gently undo the hold trauma still has on your life today. You deserve to feel good in your body and to know that you are worthy of love, kindness and peace within. It's what I'm most passionate about - your emotional wellbeing. At times it can feel like the episodes from the past are on repeat and you may feel you will always have to struggle. I partner with you to slowly, and with love for yourself, to overcome this struggle. 

One of the biggest ways trauma challenges us is in not being able to trust others; to be open and feel safe with others. So this is often a starting place for clients. 

In sessions clients have also dealt with:

unhealthy coping tactics - like isolating or over eating

difficulties in managing conflicts

anxiety when meeting new people or social gatherings

allowing feelings of joy - for fear it will not last

intimacy in sexual relationships

never feeling good enough

flash backs

a feeling of they are always being attacked 

asking for help / speaking up

setting boundaries

showing vulnerability

dealing with anger

feeling uncomfortable in their skin

lack of motivation and energy

overthinking everything

low self esteem

feeling like they don't belong anywhere

body image

self criticism /negative thoughts / hard on themselves

low resilience for stress

feeling frustrated, tired and on edge most of the time

feeling emotionally overwhelmed most of the time

As you are unique, so is your session with me. So no two sessions are ever the same. However, you will find that I encourage you: 

to share your story

to feel things, to allow the tears and suppressed emotions space

to take your time

to learn new ways of self soothing

to share your triggers

to develop emotional resilience

to share what has gone on since the last time we spoke

to consider the spiritual dimension

to go within yourself and access the love that is there

... and so much more. All the time you will be held with love and kindness as I encourage you to have the same love and kindness for yourself. This is how we heal trauma.
