Do you struggle with regulating your emotions? Or do you feel numb, disconnected, or unable to trust others? Do you feel easily triggered but not know why? Trauma, adversity, or stress can have lasting effects on our minds and bodies. Trauma is simply any adverse experience that feels overwhelming, confusing, or difficult that results a damaging belief change.
Adverse or stressful life experiences may show up as symptoms in your mind and body, even though it’s in the past. It’s in indication that a memory negatively changed your beliefs at the gut-level – who you are, what your worthiness is, what you can expect from the world and others, and so forth. You can know logically that these beliefs are not true, but not know it in your gut.
Your brain always references the past when making present decisions, so it’s helpful to let the body reprocess the past and shake off the yuck. My goal is to help you understand your triggers and lower their disturbance, so that your mind and body feel better and more in control of your present.
