Underlying the majority of our suffering, insecurities, and extreme emotions lies trauma. Especially childhood trauma that can involve physical and sexual abuse or more chronic and insidious maltreatment such as neglect, emotional abuse, boundary violations, and emotional reactivity within the family.
With the right treatment, unresolved hurt, shame, rage, sadness, terror and despair can be identified and healed, thus freeing internal energy from defensive patterns such as:
People pleasing and chronic care taking
Harsh inner critic
Lashing out in your relationships
High anxiety and panic
Depression and apathy
Reactivity and withdrawing in relationships
The results of effective trauma treatment can be:
Greater inner calm
Getting a better handle on your emotions
Increased confidence to handle life events
More harmonious relationships with deeper intimacy
Greater assertiveness and the ability to set boundaries
Increased self-acceptance and self-compassion
