I am very blessed to receive such amazing reviews from mental health professionals.
To have professionals validate, encourage, commend and recommend my Website, authored by myself, is wonderful – for the visitors to the Website to know the info and insight is quality, and helps me, in my healing journey too.
Received this review today.
WEBSITE REVIEW: healingfromcomplextraumaandptsd.wordpress.com
For: Lilly Hope Lucario – September 2014
From: John Henden
This easy-to-navigate website is a great resource for those recovering from PTSD. Created by Lilly Hope Lucario, a fellow survivor, her stated purpose is: “… to assist people in their healing on their complex trauma journey; for those supporting someone they know; or wishing to educate themselves further about complex post-traumatic stress disorder & complex trauma.”
The website is both informative and provides practical advice for survivors around symptom management, such that they can recover and live full and active lives. By way of encouragement for survivors, there are many inspirational pictures and sayings:
“Smooth seas never made a skilled sailor”; and “Either you stay in the shallow end of the pool or you decide to go out into the ocean”; and “Not all wounds are visible… But just because they are unseen, does not make them less painful.“
As a survivor of complex trauma myself (having lived 8 of my 9 lives!), I have been working as a solution focused psychotherapist for survivors or post-traumatic stress and complex trauma for nearly 20 years. I would have no hesitation in recommending this rare website to my clients and other specialist colleagues working in the field.
Lilly is an avid blogger, too, having received over a dozen blog awards and more than a quarter of a million hits to her blog site. Her twitter account (@HealingCPTSD) plays a large role in the overall helping service she provides. Both her blogs and her twitter feed can be accessed via this website.
Currently, Lilly is embarking on writing a book for recoverers entitled, Healing from Complex Trauma and PTSD/CPTSD. If visitors to her website would like to contribute towards the financial cost of this worthy project, there is a ‘Donate’ button on the home page.
