Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Fundamentalism, summed up perfectly…

“And fundamentalism I would say, is very unsophisticated about the bible, despite their allegiance to it. Fundamentalists treat the bible as – in Karen Armstrong’s memorable words – as a kind of “holy encyclopaedia in which you can look up information about God”. – Marcus Borg (being interviewed by Stephen Crittenden).

I see this so clearly. And the sad part is, they pride themselves of their unsophisticated beliefs and lack of insight. And therefore, not knowing the truth and who Jesus really is.

I have come to realise, fundamentalism, in any form, including Christian religion, is simply poor mental health. So much brainwashing involved. There are so many cognitive distortions/irrational thinking, and often ego issues within the mindsets of those who choose fundamentalist views.


I am always thankful, when I read the work of Christian theologians, who have the level of depth of thought and theological understanding, I can then relate to.

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.
