Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

All psychologists/therapists/counsellors treating Complex PTSD…need to read this.


This is important within the therapeutic relationship, with someone suffering Complex PTSD.

This is what builds trust.

This is what helps the inner child, to trust.

Without trust, without validation, without knowing the therapist understands the pain caused and expresses & models emotions about the abuse, about the abusers (including anger)…….which is what the sufferer has not received……the sufferer won’t engage.

These unmet needs, need to be met within the counselling/therapeutic relationship.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario
