What we know about trauma
Trauma is experienced by everyone
Why childhood trauma is particularly important
It is important to note that childhood trauma can have a serious and long-lasting effects. If childhood trauma is not resolved, it may carry over into adulthood and become a predisposition to further trauma. Some of the main reasons for trauma in childhood are:
I know there is something not quite right!
With a holistic practitioner and homeopath it is always possible to address the 'feeling' that something is off or that you are not well. It is not necessary to have a referral or diagnosis or test results. This sense can be explored homeopathically in a safe way that focuses on the state instead of the story.
Homeopathy is a proven method to address traumas and adds a holistic approach by including all aspects of the individual's experience no matter how unusual, irrational or even embarrassing and are explored in a non-judgemental, safe, compassionate and collaborative way. These methods used are safe to use with most treatments and medications.

When we have wounds, the deeper healing often never took place. As more and more people are highly stressed, these stress hormones can interfere with brain development leading to a cascade of problems involving connection, care, nurture, support and safety. We can all agree that this has become part of the 'modern, urban existence' that most of us are living now and although it seems normal, it is not necessary to suffer in this way.
One way for resolution to trauma to happen is to reconnect with our authentic self. We can heal by developing the awareness of how we are not living in an authentic way, and to wake up that place within us that represents who we really are. Authenticity is to be true to one's own personality, spirit or character. The moment to observe our true self is a path back to authenticity. The homeopathic session offers a space in which to return to this true part of ourselves, reconnect to ourself and to feel more connected to others.
Darkness into light
Do we see good or bad in things? What often happens in trauma is an unwillingness to address experiences we judge to be bad. We survived the experience but now try to avoid similar experiences, or have coped by disconnecting, we may have even forgotten or suppressed it. Letting light shine out of darkness means that what might have been a difficult experience, we can resolve and find the needed support. The direction towards healing is to know what is inside of us.
