Childhood Sexual Abuse Recovery

Do you have experiences and feelings of ...

  • Emotions

    There is no standard response to Childhood Sexual Abuse. As an adult we can feel shock, numbness, overwhelmed, feel like life is out of control, or be tightly holding onto controlling our life. We may have fear that we hide, fear of being alone, fear of others intentions even if the fear seems irrational. It wasn't until I had children that the fear ramped up in my life. We can doubt our ability to make judgement calls, we can feel shame and guilt because we believe we could have done something different (we couldn't) . We can be swamped by distrust of others, isolation, afraid we'll never have a healthy, sexual relationship, we can feel angry at the world, at God, and not know where to turn, or how to turn our lives around.

  • Relationships

    Generally speaking we choose relationships with people who we crave emotional closeness from but can never have with them. We think we've got relationships sorted until the next one doesn't work out. We have challenges in the area of intimacy, and knowing how to relate and invariably end up being people pleasers who never have anyone see that we have needs too. We can find being social hard without the benefit of alcohol or other substances. Family relationships are challenging because we are either believed and then feel guilty for the family break up or we are not believed and treated like it is all our fault. For me, I continually chose men who's only emotions when life got tough were anger, frustration and shutdown.

  • Health

    Everything from increasing severe migraines, body pain, constant ill health, tiredness, feeling run down, defeated and wondering when the cycle will end. I certainly experienced getting back on my feet only to fall ill again and it was incredibly frustrating. Over the years clients have also found mental health challenges, substance abuse, obesity and eating disorders have resulted from childhood sexual abuse. The consequences can also include increased sexual behaviour and over-sexualised behaviour and the resulting health problems that come from these behaviours i.e. sexually transmitted diseases and the cost of recovery.

My Story: Childhood Sexual Abuse Recovery

Writing this is publicly is tough. I want to give you hope plus a greater understanding of what is happening for you internally so you can break the cycle. Before the hope though comes the recognition of my wound and all that meant for me. I'd been searching for years for answers to questions I couldn't form. I'd tried to explain to Professionals, had hypnotherapy once, and yet no one understand I was in pain inside of me and I needed answers. One year after I had my third child the pressure of keeping everything together unravelled and the memories of Childhood Sexual Abuse came flooding back along with every single emotion I'd ever felt and buried. Initially there was relief. I was with a group of people doing their inner healing work so sharing with a few people that I was relieved to know what I'd buried for so long helped me wrap my mind around the memories and I felt safe.
My return to the real world was not so safe. I told a couple of people I thought I could trust. One of them betrayed my trust and went directly to the family involved. That tipped the scales for me and the sheer terror it invoked was crippling. Every knock at the door I was gasping for air, worried I was going to greet an angry individual who would call me a liar. Deeply worried for the safety of my children and myself and feeling completely unsafe in my own home didn't seem rational at the time but I didn't know nor understand that my all my unsafe feelings and the sense this situation is unmanageable were coming out in full force from being left unaddressed for decades. The person never showed and I headed straight to a local counsellor. Our first couple of sessions were mostly me just crying and trying to verbalise how all the pieces of my life had finally come together. It wasn't until around week 3 that I was finally able to verbalise what was to me the most important question of all "what did they really do to me?" I could recall all the incidents quite clearly, my issue wasn't with the physical, I wanted to know the damage that had been done to me internally, I wanted language for it.
I've never forgotten the counsellors next words, nor the look on her face. Before she said anything she was looking at me, sorting through whether or not I'd be able to manage the deep truth she was about to give me. There was strength in her words but they still tore at my heart and soul. "They murdered your soul" was her reply and I sobbed so deeply that one so close to me, who was supposed to love and protect me, could be so selfish and cruel. I began to read the book "The Courage to Heal" which suggested it may take me 5 years to heal. I was adamant it would take less because I was so ready to be done with this incredible pain. The pain was the first part to go, the rest, the rebuilding took longer than I expected because the events that life brings don't delay because I had recovery work to do. The information I can give you today in this course didn't exist when I had to do my recovery work. I'm glad it does now because you deserve to be whole, to love fully and to be free of the residual effects of Childhood Sexual Abuse and to not have to relive them or live through them every day. For me, I found peace after I spent 3 days with a police officer recounting what happened to me as a child. After so much disbelief surrounded me it was liberating to hear him say "you're telling the truth, I'm trained to know when people tell the truth or not, and you are definitely telling the truth." Your truth will definitely set you free to recover fully.

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.”

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. ”
