Childhood trauma can be a silent disability
Have you had unstable relationship and employment patterns? If so, it is possibse that you may be struggling with effects of childhood trauma or abuse.
Long term emotional pain stemming from loss or trauma can be overwhelming. In fact, 89.% of those with trauma have a mild disability (Sehat et al., 2020). This can include a range os issues such as difficulty controlling emotions, prolonged sadness, panic attacks or intense fear of abandonment/rejection.
Childhood Trauma and CPTSD
What is trauma? Trauma is the wound that is left over after a painful event. It is the wound that continues to hurt every time you brush against it because it never got a chance to heal.
Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) is the cumulative effect of the little traumas/wounds over time. An example is being put down by a parent. If they do it once, it is not that hurtful. If they put you down everyday over a period of time, it hurts. The wound is always there and it will likely show up in your relationships and friendships as an abandonment wound covered up through people pleasing.

With virtual therapy, we are able to play a part in reducing carbon emissions. It may be a small part that our clinic plays but there are millions of therapists and each therapist has over 100 clients a year. The amount of commuting that occurs can add up.

The Significance of the Lotus
The lotus is a symbol of rebirth and new beginnings. It is an awe inspiring flower that emerges from muddy river waters every morning to bloom fresh, clean and vibrant. Due to this miraculous nature, it has gained much significance in many Eastern cultures and was first noticed by the ancient Egyptians. They were fascinated to see a flower that went back into the water at night and pushed back out in the morning. Ancient Egyptians depicted the lotus symbol in many of their artwork and used to represent higher numbers such as one thousand or two thousand.
