COULD THE HARD STUFF NOW BE NERVOUS SYSTEM DYSREGULATION FROM BACK THEN?
Repeating unhealthy relationship patterns, poor sense of self or worth, hyper-sensitivity, hyper-reactivity, swinging mood, low energy .. all these things can be signs of how your nervous system had to adapt to a situation that was just not OK.

Have you been exposed to interactions your nervous system found traumatic, especially when you were young?
Learn about the 6 dimensions of trauma impact and how you may be affected.
I have prepared a Complex Trauma Impacts Checklist, based on many years of research and clinical practice in this field.
If you don’t have the right framework, your efforts to heal can miss the mark.
Or not sustain. Or re-traumatise you.
People impacted by Complex PTSD have usually tried many things to manage mood, not be so reactive or held back, sleep better, improve health, sustain a calm state, feel good about themselves, feel safe and trusting being intimate with others; feel feelings without being overwhelmed.
Some of it works. Some of it sustains.
Some of it backfires, re-traumatises, creates shame and hopelessness that all the things you’re trying aren’t really, fully and sustainably solving the problem.
redefine trauma exposure
According to the principles of neuroscience and attachment
explore 6 dimensions of impact
1. your nervous system
2. your relationships and attachment style
3. your personal psychology
4. your trigger profile
5. your defences and coping strategies
6. your whole of life impacts
free your authentic self
From the contractions of trauma, by seeing how it all works in you.
get your power back
Direct your own healing journey from a place informed by the neuroscience of trauma and attachment. The field is called interpersonal neurobiology.
Not just dolphins and rainbows (I love dolphins and rainbows). Not through outdated theories about changing your mind to change your life that often don’t map directly across onto trauma without creating guilt and shame when they don’t work.
Know what created your brain and nervous system to prioritise the survival functions they do.
And why you have needed to use the coping strategies you do. And why it can sometimes spill out around the edges.
When you understand how it all fits together, you can be kinder to yourself.
The more self understanding, acceptance and compassion you can muster, the more bandwidth you have for your healing process.
The more insight you have, the better you can create the right environment and people around you for healing to happen.
And your true and authentic self can take up more space in your life and the world.
It begins with knowledge and context. As a wise woman once said to me, ‘context is everything’.
