Connect with the earliest traumas and patterns still powerfully affecting behavior
Heal the Overwhelming Symptoms of Trauma & PTSD
Trauma is a reality in many of our lives. The fallout from physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, assault, neglect, surgeries, accidents, natural disasters, war, or death of loved ones can have a debilitating impact on us.
Some traumas may be decades old, while others are more recent. In either case, we may experience insomnia, flashbacks, generalized anxiety, depression, or trouble with intimacy. We may be out of touch with our feelings and life may take on a detached flat quality of involvement in daily life. We may be continually overwhelmed and flooded by intense emotions or have difficulty maintaining or developing intimate relationships.
Sometimes, our society has little patience with the wounded. We are supposed to get over it, move on, stop thinking about it, or forgive and forget. As much as we would love to do that, it just doesn’t work. We try to listen and put it behind us, but we can’t. Or, sometimes we are surrounded by loving encouragement and support but we remain plagued by what happened to us. Some of us don’t even connect the disruptive symptoms and dysfunctional patterns in our lives with the traumas of our past. What may be lacking is a safe, supportive, and loving place in which to tap into natural healing abilities and shift from merely surviving to an empowered ability to thrive.
