This news about Baby Gammy’s paedophile father, does not surprise me, at all.

http://www.mamamia.com.au/news/baby-gammy-father-charity/

So the convicted paedophile, who abandoned his son, wants access to funds set up to care for him. Doesn’t surprise me, at all.

Many paedophiles have psychopathic/narcissistic traits….. exploitative, no empathy, no remorse, no guilt, no conscience, entitlement, criminal behaviour. Sexual contact with a child, is always criminal as well and intentional abuse and completely immoral.

I think it is disgusting that the twin sister was allowed to remain in this paedophile’s care.. it is massive neglect on the part of those involved. The do-gooders and paedophile sympathisers/enablers.

Now, he is showing more of his true colours, wanting money that is not his, and was intended to care for his son that he chose to abandon because he has down syndrome and did not fulfil his paedophile child fantasy. Continue reading

Clients want to know how much a therapist ‘cares’, more than how much they understand.

This was a tweet by Mick Cooper, who is a psychologist and professor at a university.

This is a subject many don’t want to raise. But, I will.

Frankly, I cannot trust anyone who I do not believe actually genuinely cares about me. And unless they make that it very clear they do, that barrier will always be there.

Therapists, have their own physical and emotional boundaries and they need them. And that’s okay. But, this does not help complex trauma survivors, who already have such deep trust wounds.

I had some kind of bond with my therapist. And I know I have forced myself to no longer have this, for several reasons.  I have forced myself to disconnect from that, and issues that arose, have led to that. Continue reading

Your Brain on Love, Sex and the Narcissist: The Addiction to Bonding with our Abusers

by Shahida Arabi

Many survivors of narcissistic abuse are confounded by the addiction they feel to the narcissist, long after the abusive relationship took a toll on their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Make no mistake: recovery from an abusive relationship can be very similar to withdrawal from drug addiction due to the biochemical bonds we may develop with our toxic ex-partners.

Understanding why we are addicted permits us recognize that our addiction is not about the merits of the narcissist, but rather the nature and severity of the trauma we’ve experienced. It enables us to detach and move forward with powerful knowledge that can propel us towards greater agency and healthier relationships than the ones we’ve experienced in the past. In addition, it challenges the victim-blaming discourse in society that prevents many abuse survivors from gaining…

Cardinal Pell – Australia’s worst organised religion paedophile enabler, protector?

I’ve known for some time, Cardinal Pell has many psychopath traits – no empathy, no remorse, no understanding of ‘right from wrong’… has harmed many victims of clergy abuse……. and has no guilt in doing so.

Yes, many will want to say ‘look at all the good Pell has done’. Sure, if you want to believe that lie and deceive yourself with that, go for it.

Anyone who so willingly and knowingly enable, protect and shelter paedophile’s and harm so many victims of their abuse and know many more victims will occur …… in the name of God, absolutely does not know God. Continue reading
