(ACE) Working with Trauma of Adverse Childhood Experience
Working with Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE)

Adverse childhood experiences are any given situation in which a child felt unsafe, unprotected or at harm from those who they trusted to take care of them and their well being.

Those affected are often left to live with lifelong agony and untold misery in their adult life.

Starting with psychological processing and working towards post traumatic growth, to a future without those emotional and somatic memories, is key to moving forward to a happier and more fulfilling life for the client.

Working with Complex Bereavement
Working with Complex Bereavement

There is no 'one cure all’ for bereavement, loss and the heartbreak of losing a loved one. But there are ways to assist those who are struggling. To maintain a healthy focus and distraction towards acceptance can be achieved by setting healthy bereavement programmes in place.  

Complex bereavement keeps those affected, hooked into their pain.

With professional counselling, talking about feelings and thoughts can help the grieving person to start to work through their own grief cycle at it's most debilitating.

Working with the Trauma of Domestic Violence
Working with Domestic Violence and Abuse

As we learn new and effective physiological treatments for those who have been targeted by violent individuals within relationships, outcomes are now far more suited to the post traumatic growth of those affected as a whole.

An understanding into the basic functioning of the adrenal glands can be crucial when working in the aftermath with victims of domestic violence.

It can give useful insight into how the body can quickly become overloaded with stress and how the response can manifest into a myriad of illness and physical responses later in life.

Living with a narcissist and having tolerated their covert behaviour for many years can leave a person reeling, full of self-blame and total confusion.

Often, until it is pointed out that the issue may actually not be the fault of, or due to the behaviour of the empath. This awareness can be life changing, leading the client into a whole new world of awareness and freedom.

Working with
Three Levels of Trauma

So what is trauma? Trauma is what happens when a part of the brain reacts to a life threatening or life endangering event, it is the body’s fight, flight or freeze reaction kicking in. It is an acute stress response and its aim is quite simple; to keep us safe.

This course covers three levels of different traumatic incidents that those working on the frontline of mental and emotional health may work with on a regular basis.

Working with Rape and Sexual Violence
Working with Rape and Sexual Violence

The effects of being raped and/or sexually violated can go right to the very core of a person’s existence, likened to a metaphorical barbed splinter.

It’s fair to say that professionals working in this field need to have a prerequisite to believe everything that they are told, to let go of judgements and to be in awe of the survivors of rape and sexual violence who sit or stand before them, because these are the real warriors, the strong and the courageous.
