Complex Ptsd: Depression Recovery

Are you Experiencing the following ...

  • Emotions

    Cycles of Flashbacks and Numbing, Cycles of the Inner Critic, the 4F's (flight, fight, freeze & fawn, Abandonment Depression and fear and shame. Dissociation and a lack of order in your daily life, unable to keep structure in your daily life, lose time, sleep a lot, isolating, going from being quiet and at peace to explosive anger in a nano second. You can't see past the fog.

  • Relationships

    We find it hard to talk about what is happening internally for us in relationships. Fear keeps us from using our voice, even when we are treated badly and we wear a mask, afraid of the judgement, lack of acceptance and being left out of relationships. It feels safer to isolate than risk developing a new friendship or relationship.

  • Health

    Depression can impact our memory, or lack of it, we find ourselves lying awake all night, unable to shut down the constant chatter in our mind, thereby lack of sleep creates ill health of a variety of illnesses, our weight can fluctuate, our motivation is not present, we can have daytime fatigue and trouble making decisions and have an increased sensitivity to pain.

“When you're surrounded by all these people, it can be lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anyone or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone.”

"No, I don't have depression." Me to my then GP. I couldn't have been more wrong.

My history with depression first began with Post Natal Depression. My GP back then sat there with an open mouth when I told him I had Post Natal Depression. His immediate response was "No, Not you." Yes, me, and I've been hiding it for 5 months. I came through that time and didn't experience Post Natal Depression with my next 2 baby's. However, when I had Chloe & Nic at home, Josh at school, my own business, an unwell husband depression returned. After my marriage breakdown I had no signs of depression, and even after I lost all my ability to walk, talk, no memory and needing a full time carer, and had gone back to study Counselling, I didn't believe I had depression. I felt on top of the world with who I am at the time, but anxiety hit me full force, seemingly out of nowhere. And that's when I was desperately trying to explain to the new doctor that I didn't have depression, but if he could just help me with these crippling anxiety attacks I'd be on my way to living a good life.
He told me then that Anxiety and Depression go hand in hand, and I refused to believe him. I was still undiagnosed with Complex Ptsd at the time. I quit trying to explain to Therapists years ago that I "knew" something was wrong internally with me, something wasn't functioning "right" but I had no language and they had no clue how much I was suffering internally because my exterior life looked like I had it all together. That doctor helped me with medication so that I could begin addressing the intense anxiety attacks. By 2017 I was free to go new places and not have to preplan every single step. And then the Complex Ptsd Depression hit me like a freight train. Seemingly, literally, out of nowhere I was losing days at a time, my self care was gone, I'd attempt to go to gym, get dressed, and wake up in my lounge chair unable to figure out what was happening. Why was I falling asleep? In 2018 I began to study Complex Trauma and extended my study into the Neurobiology of Trauma. Finally, I understood, it was indeed Depression. Not like standard Depression, this came full barrel at me as Complex Ptsd Abandonment Depression.
Without my study I would have spent the rest of my life wondering what was "wrong" with me. With Abandonment Depression I came to understand there was nothing wrong with me, with who I am, but my brain developed differently in childhood due to abandonment and this was driving the dissociation, the shut down, the Fawn mode (hypoarousal) because I wanted to be able to get on and live my life and this stretched what my brain was capable of processing. Plus there was a whole lot of unprocessed fragments from the abandonment trauma too. Complex Ptsd doesn't come with just a one size, one way fits all. There's more dimensions to healing from trauma than current therapy has begun to realise worldwide. I desperately wanted to break the cycle, desperately wanted not to lose days at a time, hours at a time, to be fully present more often than not so I began to put the pieces together of what I needed to do to make that possible. I developed this program from sheer necessity and it works. It's help me get to a place where now I can recognise when the abandonment depression trigger goes off and I can apply any of a number tools I had to develop to break this cycle. That's the big positive. It's not only possible to break the cycle, it's possible to reclaim our days and hours where we feel we can't cope or we get knocked out from the Fawn Response. Sometimes I push myself too far, too soon, and fall asleep eating dinner, but hey, I'm enthusiastic about getting my life back!

“As long as you keep secrets and suppress information, you are fundamentally at war with yourself…The critical issue is allowing yourself to know what you know. That takes an enormous amount of courage.”― Bessel A. van der Kolk
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

Bessel Van Der Kolk

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

“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. ”
