What is Childhood Trauma?
According to Google, " When a child feels intensely threatened by an event he or she is involved in or witnesses, we call that event a trauma. There is a range of traumatic events or trauma types to which children and adolescents can be exposed."
Frequently people in many communities, are taught to be silent about their traumatic experiences. We are told not to tell anyone what happened to us. We are sometimes told our experiences are invalid. We are also told that no one cares about our experiences. In which the silence begins and continues. I want to bring awareness to the silence of childhood trauma.
What many people do not understand is that childhood trauma has long term effects on individuals that lead into adulthood. It can affect relationships, friendships, parenting, careers and so much more. Some long term effects could also lead to various mental illness such as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
I am on an inner healing journey and I aim to help heal a community of people who were silenced because of their trauma. Speaking my truth is where my healing began. I am not a licensed therapist. I provide tools from therapy sessions I had over the years along with life experience. Nor do I claim to have professional medical degrees to provide medical diagnosis to any person. The information provide on this site and my podcast are all based on my experience and opinion. I am a certified Life Coach.
According to Google, there are many forms of childhood trauma. Childhood trauma can be one of many: domestic violence, accidents, physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, loss of a parent or parents, abandonment, accidents, bullying, death of a loved one, dysfunctional homes and so much more.
My goal is to help at least one person heal from my story. It is time for us to be real with ourselves and begin the healing process. Please join me in this journey.
I created a podcast to document my childhood trauma and experiences. I speak on varies traumas that have affected my life from childhood to my adulthood.
Please join me in the movement to end childhood trauma.
I speak about many different tabu topics to help bring awareness to childhood trauma. Childhood trauma can lead to PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety, depression, heart disease, obesity, mental illness and more. I am not a licensed therapist, but I am a certified Life Coach. I provide tools from my profession as a life coach, along with the decades of life experience. I combine the two to help people along their journey. Our children need us.
