Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.


Poetry, for trauma survivors, is a deeply personal expression, of words that can often not be spoken.

I write poetry sometimes. I have nearly always has a good reaction when I’ve shared it, but sometimes people choose to criticise, choose to demean it.

Which is simply a reflection of their own issues.

I will keep writing, as I need to for me, and I know it does help others.

Dance moves and expressionate interpretation of highly emotive songs.

Two songs that resonate deeply with me, from my past, and somewhat in my present, are

Lana Del Rey’s ‘Ultraviolence’ and ‘Fucked My Way Up To The Top’.

They are due to my self harming, trauma re-enacting issues, due to all the prolonged childhood sexual abuse/rape, prolonged severe abuse/rape from a psychopath, that I cannot talk about.

I used dance and music when I was a child and teenager, to express my emotions and pain. So, recently I decided to do this again, and I have put together some dance and expression/movement interpretation of these songs, as to my pain and emotions about these songs.

It feels very emotive when I do this and I use my body, my face and my emotions to feel this music and the lyrics.

It is something that is helping me deal with this.

Not something I could ever show anyone, even though it probably is okay to watch, because I know dance, expression and emotions, are my ‘thing’. I was a very talented ballet dancer and you don’t lose this, even if you forget the particular dance moves.

It helps me, to release and cope with the emotions, through my body and facial expression.
