A journey to healing from complex trauma.

It is always a blessing to have people speak of my courage & being real.

To have people confirm my thoughts/writing are courageous and are a ‘breath of fresh air’ and validating I ‘keep it real’, are a blessing.

I have heard this many times now, including from my counsellor. She confirmed my honesty, depth of thinking, capacity to self reflect etc, are “a breath of fresh air.” And rare.

I realise it is unusual to challenge current popular thinking, when there is a need to see it in a deeper, bigger picture, far more rational way.

I do challenge people, including esteemed mental health professionals. Not to be controversial – because I don’t actually like confrontation and challenging people. But, because to be authentic and true to myself, I cannot simply tolerate what I know is not healthy.

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.
