How is Trauma Recovery Coaching so effective?
There are multiple reasons how Trauma Recovery Coaching is effective:
•Childhood trauma is a relational trauma, which means it happened in the context of relationships. The journey of healing and working through developmental trauma also happens in the context of relationships. The Trauma Recovery Coaching relationship with the client is built around the client learning how to feel safe with another person.
•The Client sets the recovery goals, and is supported 100% by the Trauma Recovery Coach through the process. The client has final decision, and the coach understands they are learning who they are without shame, worthlessness, powerlessness and blame clouding their lives, due to developmental trauma.
•Complex trauma survivors’unconscious brain was programmed that life is overwhelming, dangerous and unmanageable. Working with a Trauma Recovery Coach helps the client to experience how life can be functional and manageable. The safety offered within the relationship changes perceptions.
•Complex Trauma Recovery Coaching is Designed specifically for Complex Trauma health and recovery. Client needs are met specifically and individually, not generally and each client is recognised as having their own needs to be met and services are tailored accordingly.
•The Trauma Recovery Coach walks alongside the client. We do not create a plan for healing on our own, we work together, helping the client claim their power, assert themselves and speak their truth while learning how to integrate principals into their life that are positive and healing.
•Trauma Recovery Coaching works with the whole person; body, mind and spirit. There is never a one-size-fits-all approach, instead we listen to what the client needs and offer the benefit of education, experience, hope and caring.
As a Trauma Recovery Coach I do not pathologize any trauma responses my clients have. I don't label what they are experiencing as wrong or bad. Instead, I acknowledge that they are having normal, adaptive reactions to trauma. I don't label anyone as disordered or ill because they have experienced trauma and have responded in ways that their brain and nervous system used to keep them safe and survive. We are equals in Trauma Recovery Coaching. Our relationships are collaborative and safe. Using a client-led and bottom up approach, I walk with clients to help them reconnect with our parts, emotions our bodies, and other people.
