When you finally come down from feeling overwhelmed and stressed...
When you are finally able to breath for a moment because you found a way to cope that actually works...
Then here comes another struggle that you completely forgot about. Now suddenly you are noticing layers and layers of other issues you pushed down, are now starting to resurface.
This is what complex trauma feels like.
Complex trauma refers to experiences that have caused a significant amount of emotional and psychological damage over an extended period of time.
These experiences can include things like abuse, neglect, witnessing violence or conflict, or being exposed to ongoing stressors like poverty or addiction within the family. Because these experiences are difficult to cope with, they can lead to problems with mental health, relationships, and overall well-being.
Symptoms of complex trauma can include anxiety, depression, difficulty trusting others, and a sense of hopelessness or helplessness.
It's important to remember that healing from complex trauma is possible with the right support and resources. If you or someone you know has experienced complex trauma, seeking professional help from a therapist or counselor can be a helpful step in the healing process.
I will give you a safe space to peel back those layers so you can take back your power.
