I am struggling...and
Therapy has been helpful it is not enough, I feel like I just relive the events each session.
Therapy was great but now I am just not moving forward anymore.
I want to speed my progress to healing and I am looking for evidence-based tools to help!
I am looking for someone knowledgable, empathetic, kind, yet empowering. I often get stuck in knowing what I 'should do' but not doing it.
I am ready to shift my focus on my own healing rather than my abuser.
I am tired of being stuck and am ready to move out of the tornado of emotions.
I was the victim of covert narcissism, borderline personality disorder, narcissism or other types of emotional abuse and I need steps to help me heal.
I have tried other things, nothing is really working and I am over the 'emotional rollercoaster'
Don't worry, if you answered yes to any of these, you are in the right place!
What is Complex-PTSD?
Complex post-traumatic stress disorder, C-PTSD, is an extreme stress-based disorder due to prolonged or repetitive events like childhood emotional abuse, domestic violence (i.e. financial, emotional or physical abuse).
Clients often exhibit distortions of emotion regulation, pervasive negative self-concepts, and difficult interpersonal relationships like lack of trust.
It is characterized by severe and persistent feelings of shame, guilt, and failure.
The cumulative effects of abuse, in any form, like abandonment, can lead to C-PTSD. For example, a parent not providing praise or withholding love can give rise to C-PTSD. A mate withholding affection or a partner who is narcissistic can give rise to C-PTSD.
Mind-Body Medicine Support for C-PTSD
Hi, I'm Kelli! I am an expert in an evidence-based method of healing called Mind-body medicine.
Mind-body medicine is a modern revolutionary approach to emotional and physical welling. Experts like me don't rely on fads, or smoke and mirrors.
Experts like myself, promote healing that includes a wide range of behavioral and lifestyle interventions that are on an equal basis with conventional medical interventions.
Mind-body medicine focuses on the interactions among the mind, body, and spirit. Interventions used include spirituality, hypnosis, plant-based therapy, mindfulness, meditation, mindfulness, and positive psychology coaching.
As an expert and professional coach, I use this method of healing is used to support the client in their totality: mind, body, and spirit. Mind-body medicine supports the healing of diseases and promotes health and can also facilitate emotional expression and result in psychological healing as well.
How Do I Know?
From previous toxic relationships, I developed C-PTSD. Therapy, while helping me validate the war zone I was living in, was not enough. I needed more! I reached out I got support through positive psychology coaching and initiated therapies I learned in my doctoral research in Mind-Body Medicine.
As I trained more in positive psychology coaching and Mind-Body Medicine in my PhD program I starting helping women (and some men) who were ALSO struggling and they got results as I did.
I now teach these exact steps and use positive psychology coaching and hypnosis with my private clients. In fact, all these tools are going into a book I am writing as you are reading this, My goal is to reach more women (and some men) with the message of healing.
I reclaimed my life, found calm and happiness! I had nightmares, panic attacks, depression/anxiety. I was on an emotional roller coaster! I had no idea I had complex trauma until my provider told me. I wanted to speed my progress. I had lost enough of my happiness and my life with this! Over five years of nightmares and not sleeping, ugggh. Even more years of depression/anxiety roller coaster.
I was over it!
Now, that said, the road to recovery was not overnight, but I learned secret tips and tricks to speed my progress and I want to share them with you!
Look, I want this to be a no brainer for you. Imagine what your life would be like a year from now with the right tools to help you recover. What if you slept better, fewer to no, nightmares, no panic attacks, feeling calmer, happier, more relaxed. Not being on an emotional rollercoaster. What would you do?
