This evening I catch up with Rachel Sutherland a Trauma & Abuse Therapist from Suffolk in England.
Rachel is a Qualified Master NLP Practitioner in Holistic Health & Wellbeing and an EMN (Eye Movement Neuro-integration) Therapist.
Rachel firstly shares her back story of how she came to be doing what it is that she so loves from working as a Volunteer and Charity Worker in the world of Mental Health.
Rachel soon came to realise that people dealing with trauma are good people who have had an event in their past that came to shape and define who they were. The effects of these can lock us into patterns of behaviour that work against us and stop us from being able to live fully in the world.
Rachel gives our audience insights in to why our behaviours are due to how we’ve naturally and understandably responded to the experiences that have happened to us, and that none of us needs ‘fixing’.
I ask Rachel What Trauma Therapy& Coaching is and what it isn’t?
We look at how seemingly ‘little’ traumas can impact a person’s life as much as those ‘big’ traumas.
We then explore some of the common issues for Trauma survivors namely what if a client has little or no memory of the trauma?
Refreshingly Rachel explains why the effects of being traumatised is neither a life sentence nor a disorder.
Rachel helps us to understand what is required before embarking on Trauma Therapy Coaching and what one should expect from Trauma Therapy Coaching.
We learn that Trauma Therapy & Coaching is not about dredging up past pain and patterns but more about a process to move through these behaviours that leave us feeling stuck and not being able to be our complete self.
Rachel walks our listeners through the importance of confidentiality and What is it that Rachel offers in working with clients.
An inspiring discussion that gives anyone suffering with Trauma or past Abuse that there is a positive outcome waiting for them if they are prepared to do the work to get to the other side.
