Survivors have the ability to create the same beautiful life experiences, accomplishments and fulfilled dreams as others. But sometimes in our journey, we get stuck in our traumatic world and struggle to find the freedom we so desperately seek.
There are parts of us that are afraid to let go of old familiar patterns even though the results are painful. It’s all we know. But it is possible to release the hold these patterns have on our life today and to become more than we expected or thought was possible.
But it’s almost impossible to do on your own. It takes a fresh pair of eyes to uncover what you’ve spent a lifetime trying to forget. Not just memories, although you may uncover some of those, but the thought patterns, messages and beliefs that are driving your choices today.
Because it’s what’s left over after the abuse, neglect and trauma has ended that is causing you so much pain today. And not only causing you pain but keeping you in a cycle of behaviour that keeps delivering the very results you’re trying so hard to escape.
It’s not your fault.
The parts of you that have helped you survive your childhood are still trying to keep you safe today. But now that you’re an adult a lot of their methods stand in the way of everything you truly want.
Think about it like this. If you behaved a certain way and were punished for it, parts of you will be working to keep you from experiencing that punishment again. If you never received love as a child, parts of you will continue looking for it today. Unfortunately, these parts of you never grew up and are continuing to look in all the wrong places for the results they need.
It makes sense doesn’t it?
Hi, I’m Elisabeth Corey and as a survivor of family-controlled sex abuse and trafficking, I understand how hard it is to step out of the darkness and bring light to the shadows that haunt us. It’s my own journey, together with my training as a life coach for trauma survivors, that allows me to support you in the practice of the daily awareness techniques that are essential in revealing the long hidden beliefs that are holding you back.
Together we will create new strategies and solutions to take your life to the next level
Over many years of working with survivors, I’ve developed a range of guidance tools to help you uncover the places in your life where you feel most affected by your childhood trauma. Together with one-to-one discussions, we will work to discover the areas of your life that feel most in need of improvement and to identify the beliefs that have created the old trauma patterns you’re repeating today. As we begin an inner conversation to shift those patterns and beliefs, we will begin to create freedom for the future.
Using five key guidance tools, we will work together to raise your awareness through writing. Each tool will include a guided question and answer session carefully crafted to meet your needs. In addition to the tools, we will consult once per week (over a five week period) by phone or Skype to discuss and reflect on your responses to the written guidance.
As you move towards greater self-awareness and work through your traumatic experiences, the recovery that has appeared immovable in the past will begin to take shape allowing you to finally discover your ultimate, peaceful self that has been waiting to emerge.
Here’s how it works:
- We will discover how your past trauma is impacting your current life
- We will identify the traumatic patterns in your life
- We will begin a conversation with your separated inner parts to discover the messages and defence mechanisms that are running your life
- We will build a process that allows your inner parts to express their emotions and share information
- We will develop a series of actions for building awareness and releasing your trauma
