Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

My empathic views on ‘self pity’ & being a ‘victim’ are well received.


Due to the highly un-empathic, worrying and abusive views spouted by Stephen Fry recently, social media has opened the opportunity to get empathic views and understanding out there.

So many people have shared my posts and blogs to show Stephen Fry is wrong, including mental health professionals, mental health and abuse survivor advocacy organisations. And have linked Mind Charity UK into them too. I hope they do read them and realise how wrong Fry is.

I am thankful for all who have been involved in sharing my work.

I will keep saying there is nothing shameful in being a victim.

I will keep saying self pity, is a normal, needed and healthy emotion.

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.

  1. thanks….religious people say that…self pity is bad…sinful

  2. Wow…is all I can say. I hate self pity though. It feels so horrible. But at least we are right to feel the way we do. Therapy is helping me work this out in a safe space. I’m reading Pete Walker’s book about C-PTSD btw and it’s amazing.
