Complex Ptsd: Anxiety Recovery

Have you experienced ...

  • Emotions

    restlessness, and a feeling of being "on-edge" uncontrollable feelings of worry increased irritability concentration difficulties sleep difficulties, such as problems in falling or staying asleep, shaking, confusion, dizziness, nausea, and breathing difficulties, fear of negative judgment from others in social situations or of public embarrassment, a fear of intimacy, and anxiety around humiliation and rejection.

  • Relationships

    Staying at home feels safer than engaging in romantic or personal relationships, you can feel lonely but not feel alone, you rely heavily on your partner to reassure you or calm anxious thoughts, you avoid serious conversations with your partner because you are afraid of conflict, you constantly fear that your partner is going to leave you, you experience anxiety when your partner is away, you convince yourself your partner is unfaithful with no evidence.

  • Health

    You might feel lightheaded and nauseous, increases frequency of symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and depression, long-term exposure to cortisol can contribute to weight gain, you may have stomachaches, nausea, diarrhoea, and other digestive issues. Loss of appetite can also occur. Weakened immune system, leaving you more vulnerable to viral infections and frequent illnesses, anxiety can also make asthma symptoms worse.

The Still Face Experiment Dr. Edward Tronick PhD

Watch to gain a deeper understanding of where and how attachment disorders can begin in early life. This speaks more than words can convey.

“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.”

Anxiety? Me? No. Undiagnosed Complex Ptsd & Anxiety.

When I first went to work in the City, Sydney, an hours train trip from my home, the feeling I couldn't breathe and felt like I was about to vomit, felt like my body was betraying me. How could I possibly be sick when I'm doing a very normal exercise by going to work. The sheer panic of going up and down in elevators twice a day for the interoffice mail run was well hidden behind a mask and a happy smile. Needless to say by the end of the day I had a migraine, vomitted on the way home and got off a few stations early for then boyfriend to drive me home. When he asked why I couldn't go the last few stations I had no words. I was so unwell my mother, who never let me have a day off school unless I was practically dying, came and told me the next morning I didn't have to go to work if I was unwell. I was shocked. I got up and went to work because this job and the freedom to leave home meant more than staying in bed.
Over time the headaches and nausea ceased as I got used to the daily routine. I had no idea all of this was anxiety from Complex Ptsd. We were decades out from even knowing the words. For the most part I did well, even moving interstate and back, moving between the country and the city and interstate again. I managed all the changes knowing that the feelings would come again but in a few days time I'd be over it all, again. The first real crisis came as I held my second baby in my arms, about to take both children to the shops, and the phone rang. A woman informed me she was sleeping with my husband. I hung up the phone, picked up the baby bag, and got all of us in the car. Completely ignoring the panic rising I drove up the road, and as I got onto the main road I had to literally pull over to the side of the road trying to breathe. I had no idea how to manage everything. From this point forward every time the stress in my life increased the anxiety amped up. To the point where I was having minor seizures when the anxiety came. I tried to explain to my doctor what was happening, that this wasn't a normal kind of anxiety, but I had no language, and they just gave me tablets to manage it.
By the time I was coming around from losing my cognitive functions I was on around 5 mg of Xanax, an old antidepressant and other medications I can't remember. I got off all of them except the antidepressant and the 5 mg of xanax. Once I was divorced, and was studying I was able to change doctors and get off the xanax, and be put on a modern day antidepressant. I've been able to completely break the cycle of the seizure like anxiety attacks because I know what drives them neurologically and I've broken the cycles. It wasn't easy, but it was absolutely worth it not to have to preplan every step of me leaving the house, and making contingency plans in case I had an anxiety attack whilst I was out. Now I leave the house and don't even think twice about it. Complex Ptsd and Anxiety is very different to Anxiety without the Complex Ptsd. We need different information to address it and break the cycles in our lives. All of which we can learn and integrate into our daily lives with ease. No more isolating to feel safe, we can feel safe and we can manage to go out into the world and regain the life we are created to live. #togetherwecan

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.”

D.Z. California, U.S.

“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. ”
