Complex Ptsd: Emotional Abuse Recovery

Have you experienced ...

  • Emotions

    Those around you Devalue you, have you doubting your own character, emotions and thoughts. You've experience being put down and question your own sanity, called a drama queen, didn't have an emotional education growing up nor have your emotions validated in your family of origin. You can feel emotionally numb, have lacked deep emotional connections in adulthood and wonder why this is, dissociation can happen unexpectedly. Your heart longs for healthy connections and real answers to your internal feeling of there being a hole inside of you can't fill and it doesn't stop aching.

  • Relationships

    You can look back and see your Family of Origin provided no healthy context for relationships and into adulthood you've chosen unsafe people to be in relationships with no matter how hard you tried to make sure this didn't happen. Adult relationships have lacked emotional depth even when you've tried to explain what you need. Over time you've stopped trying to explain what is happening for you internally as words didn't cover the internal chaos. You've lost friends and relationships, isolated because it felt the safest place and convinced yourself this is a normal way for you to live your life.

  • Health

    The long term effects on our body and brain from emotional abuse can include, but are not limited to, the following - depression, anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, loneliness, our brain develops differently causing cognitive distortions, lack of social skills, lack of self worth/self value, migraines, indigestion, stomach ulcers and chronic disease) disorders, poor health due to risky behaviours, suicidal ideation, increased chances of a toxic relationship thereby a decrease in health due to an overload of stress. For me I also developed Epilepsy at age 15 with no family history.

The Still Face Experiment Dr. Edward Tronick PhD

Watch to gain a deep understanding of where and how emotional abuse/attachment disorders can begin in early life. This speaks more than words can convey in regards to Emotional Abuse.

“The art of not experiencing feelings. A child can experience her feelings only when there is somebody there who accepts her fully, understands her, and supports her. If that person is missing, if the child must risk losing the mother's love or her substitute in order to feel, then she will repress emotions.”

My Story in the Making re Emotional Abuse

It's taken me many years of consciously working recovery to arrive at such a deep physical awareness of how much I've denied my deepest of emotions and needs. Last night I began to put this beautiful module together, went to bed and woke up triggered to the degree my body was just letting everything go. I was terrified but excited all at the same time. Finally, after a full day of creative work and choosing to consciously focus on what was happening for me internally, the break through and the incredible understanding I've needed for decades has arrived. I, like many of you, was a child not planned for, conceived out of wedlock and depending which parent you listened to the circumstances surrounding my conception wasn't the stuff of a Disney movie. I thought conception was the beginning of my life, but it turned out my maternal great grandmother abandoned her four daughters, my grandmother didn't love my mother (probably the only thing they both agreed on), and the repressed emotions my mother had impacted her ability to mother me and ultimately cost her her life.
My mum never spoke about how she felt towards her mum re her childhood nor her experiences until a matter of weeks before she died. Finally, she was able to tell me a little bit of the emotional pain she'd carried for decades and we both wept together knowing it was too late to change her ill health. For me, my parents married, had another child shortly after me, then things went progressively downhill into divorce. The trauma passed down on both sides of the female line in my family hit me as the 5th generation on both sides. My mother wasn't able to acknowledge me, I parented my younger sibling from an early age, I gained an abandonment wound around 4 when my entire family disappeared overnight and no one would talk about where my mum was and if I was likely to see her again. My family didn't like talking about emotions, and my paternal grandmother had an unspoken rule that if I got emotional I had to pull myself together and not talk about it. I loved her and I loved my mum, but it was tough yards. The challenge with all of these unseen wounds and their impact is we are the first generation to have the scientific evidence to back it all up that our health is severely impacted. The good news is we can do the work to reverse and not pass on, what was handed onto to us. And we must do our work to break the cycles of the toxic generations who have preceded us.
I have spent decades trying to understand what it was that I didn't understand in relation to my mum and I. Tonight, I understand that I've worked hard to have the courage to face the long held onto emotions in my heart of needing my mum to see me, to acknowledge my existence and to know that I matter. As an adult I can now gift myself all of these AND I can gift all of these to my children and grandchildren. There is nothing logical about the depths of our emotions even when we seek to put them in an order. Genuine, authentic love is messy and genuine authentic love carry's with it everything from like to dislike, but the depths of love bind us together as a family. Even though I wasn't the perfect mum by any stretch of the imagination, we've made it into adulthood loving each other despite our differences. We've made it through because we choose to love and communicate, to care and laugh, to call each other out on challenging behaviour, to modify, to speak the sometimes ugly truths, and to shed tears of joy and tears of sadness, together. This work, this brave hearted work, is not for the feint of heart. It's for the Conscious Warriors who are determined to break the cycles of toxicity handed down. We know the buck stops with us.

Healing Warriors are not born or made, they choose to consciously break the cycle of generations of trauma.

Linda I have to tell you I have been in Complex PTSD therapy and an intensive therapy like hospital IOP which in the States is intensive outpatient. I always refuse to go inpatient because my colleagues would know I was there as I was a high level nurse in the hospital and everyone knew me. When I was working and everything was hidden away in my brain from my childhood I was making way over six figures and I spent over $20,000 out of pocket back then trying to get the best help I could but it didn't work. That was in addition to my insurance which was high level. I have been in therapy for over 20 years and I have to tell you...you are the first person who has given me hope... For a normal life and being triggered is not the end of the world. I wanted to thank you for all you do. I am so blessed to have met you because you've really helped me. I am slowly becoming the person I always hoped I could be. Much love and heartfelt appreciation. - Danielle Morrison RN PHD

The Body Keeps the Score

"Traumatized people chronically feel unsafe inside their bodies: The past is alive in the form of gnawing interior discomfort. Their bodies are constantly bombarded by visceral warning signs, and, in an attempt to control these processes they often become expert in ignoring their gut feelings and in ignoring what is played out inside. They learn to hide from their selves."
Before I met Linda my life was at such a low point. I didn't know where to turn or what to do. I had tried Therapists and it was like being on a Merry-Go-Round. Nothing was changing so I refused to go anymore. I was on a wait list for DBT but my Mum found Linda and after working with her my life is now happy, bright and I enjoy every day. I went from being anxious and depressed alone at home, to joining a local choir, joining the St. John Ambulance to train for helping at Concerts, being able to help my mum at home and best of all I now have a beautiful relationship.

Linda Meredith

Certified Trauma Recovery Coach/Counsellor

Have you ever wondered how the bad things that happened in your childhood changed you and continue to impact your life? Like you, I had the bad things happen in my childhood and they turned my adulthood into a train wreck, repeatedly. More than anything I wanted to be free of Complex Ptsd and to have the life I believed I was designed to live. Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk says it this way "Trauma affects the entire human organism—body, mind, and brain. In (c)PTSD the body continues to defend against a threat that belongs to the past." For me the question then became how do I get off this defence system? Lots of practical experience, lots of years of study, and I'm winning the defence system battle. No longer do I suffer from crippling anxiety that came with mini epileptic seizures, no longer does depression rule my life, and the journey to breaking free means I know intimately what will work and what won't work. I know who I am, why I am here, and where I'm headed. None of which was possible prior to doing the work. If you're ready I can now teach you and fully equip you to break free more time and cost effectively and more importantly more permanently than spending decades talking in a therapists office. #togetherwecan

Client Reviews

Reviews are from genuine clients who have asked for their identities to remain private. Until we can speak openly about Mental Health with our family, friends and work colleagues, I respect the need for confidentiality.

“Today I got triggered. AND, thanks to Linda Meredith's amazing course I was able to get a huge understanding of what I'm going through and deal with it so that my negative feelings don't linger much longer. This awareness is priceless. She is a solid coach and I highly recommend her courses and one on one coaching to whoever wants to deal with their challenge. Truly, thank you Linda.”

“Yours is an entirely new concept specifically designed for CPtsd. It also shows me logically how I am the master of my life. That I have the power to create my own road map of recovery to remission. The process is structured and manageable. It gives me strength and confidence knowing I am the master of my life. Thank you for choosing to share all that you do and are with us.”

“I've learned more from 25 minutes of this woman than all the years of therapy that I've had combined, since diagnosis. I went through a 6 week program on PTSD, did nothing. No, that's not true, it confused me even more. Made it worse in a way. I am obsessed enough about my recovery that I was able to maintain my attention until the end and understand what you were saying! (I also suffer ADHD). I have no doubts my recovery will be going a lot faster now because of you! I've saved your video and plan to watch it a few more times. Your analogies were perfect in explanation, for me. So, thank you again."”

B.L. Tennessee, U.S.

“I just thought there was no hope for me. For the first time I have some hope because of your courses. I'm so grateful I found you because I've had Complex Ptsd for over 30 years. I'm in the medical field and over 30 years of therapy has not helped. I find your methodology helping me more than anything I've ever tried, so thank you!”

“When I got triggered during an intensive workout with my trainer, I told him I can't breath deeply and he was skeptical. He said it's normal and it's hard to breath because of the exercise. One true true thing about it that I learned from Linda Meredith's Depression course Is that Complex PTSD is often mistaken with other symptoms or mental issues like bipolar, ADD etc... Eventually he had to accept it because I was calmly insisting after all breath shortness has passed. I will do the same with my family and friends. Guys, I am just so grateful I have the tools now and that's all that matters. Now I wake up with energy and a clear mind. I have the tools to deal with it. When triggered, I can take action and that's priceless! Linda, I can't thank you enough. ”
