Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I think it’s time for me to end counselling ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

I realise there comes a point when counselling needs to end. And I do believe I have come to the end of needing this counselling. For many reasons. Good and not good – which I don’t feel the need to explain, or defend.

My counsellor is away now for 3 weeks. So, this will give me time to adjust to not having or needing therapy.

It will be hard, ending a therapy relationship of nearly 5 years. But, I am aware it would need to happen at some point. And there is a part of me, that needs that to be my choice/decision.

I’ve had so many choices taken away from me all through my life, that I need to make important choices for myself. And I realise I am also wanting to avoid any feeling of abandonment, or rejection, which I know will always be there under the surface, even though I can manage this better.

I have things now in place – like my photography course, to take my mind of any sadness, or grieving I will feel. Often when something is happening in my life, the first person I think of to tell, is my counsellor. And I need to end that now.

I need to rely on and trust only me. And everyone else be a part of my life, out of choice, but not because I depend on them. I want my complete independence back, where I need to rely on no-one.

I think I am strong enough now, to handle this therapy relationship ending.

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
