Trauma sits in your body
The people I meet and work with experience powerlessness, loneliness, a guilty conscious, feelings of inadequacy, exhaustion, sleepless nights or deep sadness, anger, bitterness, jealousy, worrying and isolation. Many have had suicidal ideation or suicidal thoughts.
These are signs of childhood trauma and if left too long can lead to an eating disorder, addictions, depression, anxiety or chronic pain. All are deep a yearning to be loved; the desire to be loved is natural, it is a human need and yet, most people I meet, feel shame about this. This is a trauma response.
Trauma responses include:
– not being able to speak up or show up for yourself
– finding it difficult to ask for what your need from others
– and one of the biggest is not being able to let the love and kindness from others in – even though it is what you desire most, you are not able to open up and trust people.
If you recognise yourself here, first and foremost be gentle with yourself. Second, know you are not the only one, this was my story too! And I have met many, many people who experience the same deep sadness.
In a safe space, you are invited, slowly, to explore the emotions and feelings that are hidden in your body.
You have the opportunity to express what comes up, all the time being able to let me know what you need to feel safe or if you need to stop.
This is sensitive work and you feeling safe is the most important, without which nothing can shift and change.
"When life hurts, genuine loving support is essential to finding your balance again"
When you're in the middle of a painful life situation or mind-attack, it can be almost impossible to find a way out. Most of us know what it feels like when life is incredibly heavy and overwhelming.
There, where life is unbearably painful.
There, where you feel unloved.
There, where everything is complicated or meaningless.
Reach out and share your story. I can help you with:
Unresolved trauma, the effects of which continues into adult life;
conflicts in all types of relationships; and
quietening the mind so you can feel what it's like to live inside your body
You will learn how to trust again, feel calm, worthy, lovable and a deep sense of knowing you have the coping skills for your life.
This is a safe space for you to talk, move and feel. You will be seen in your pain and supported with compassion to heal. I help you see yourself in a different light.
