Many people contact me because they may have memories that are disturbing to them, of abuse they suffered earlier in life.
This abuse may have taken many forms – physical, mental, emotional, sexual or social. Those memories can either be in full consciousness or they can come in the form of flashbacks, where you gets little pieces of memory flashing into your mind.
These situations can be very disturbing you may find life difficult to cope with.
This is the kind of subject you may not be comfortable talking to people at work about. You may even be afraid to mention it to your family or friends even though they may understand that you seem to be having a difficult time.
Sometimes some things seem so personal you do not want to take the risk of sharing them with the people around you.
You may even be unsure whether those intrusive memorise are real or not or those memories may be so shocking you are afraid of them.
You may need a private space to explore these issues without judgement where you can honestly voice what is happening to you.
We provide that space where you can feel safe and someone will listen to you empathically and help you. Whether those memories are real or not is something you may need to explore, but no matter what the outcome you need to deal with them so you can live your life well.
As I reveal in my Amazon number one bestselling self-help book Inspiration for Survive and Prosper: Personal Transformation Out of Crisis, I have helped many clients recover from the crisis and trauma of child abuse.
I myself recovered from an abusive childhood and went on to become a well published, internationally respected therapist as well as a successful business woman. So I know you can survive those memories and that crisis or trauma.
There are many different hypnotic and psychological techniques to help you deal with these past, disturbing memories, allowing you to live a fuller, more satisfying life in the present and future.
There have been some therapies that have delved deeply into past child abuse in order to help a person forward. I do not work in that way. In my practice I use brief effective therapy to help you quickly deal with those memories to become fully psychologically, emotionally and socially whole and integrated once again, or in some cases, for the first time in your life.
If you have been carrying the burden of child abuse around with you for many years, it is time to start to make some changes.
You might not think you could be any different but trust me when I tell you, you can overcome your past sexual abuse, emotional abuse or physical abuse. We provide a space for you to recover from child abuse in absolute privacy and safety.
While our pasts do shape us today they need not be the sole determiner of our current experience and futures.
People who have suffered child abuse have overcome it very well psychologically and emotionally to go on to lead a wonderful life, just as you can.
