Why Counselling And Therapy Don’t Work For Trauma
That’s what we hear from most of the people who watch my content and apply to work with us.
I’m not bagging on counsellors and therapists here, either.
I have trained with many, and they are some of the most empathetic
and kind people I’ve ever met.
Some are highly skilled at what they do.
Let’s face it, when you’re going through a rough time,
it helps to have a listening ear,
and receive advice and feedback from a compassionate witness.
But almost every single one of our students say the same thing:
“What I’m learning here, I never was able to learn with the Counsellor/
So what is it that’s different, and why might you have been feeling like you’re talking in circles getting nowhere?
Here’s the reason:
When you’ve experienced Interpersonal Trauma,
beginning in childhood with parents and unresolved pain in your family system, It results in a sense of alarm and hyper vigilance in the body.
This registers as emotional pain:
Betrayal, Rejection, abandonment, anger, guilt, shame…
You name it.
This is experienced as pain, and as a child we will escape up in our minds to avoid it.
Anxiety is the mind’s attempt to avoid the painful emotions of the body, to come up with explanations and stories to distract us from that pain.
Going to a therapist every week to vent your story and given coping strategies DOES NOT GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE AT THE BODY BASED (SOMATIC LEVEL).
I had tried everything under the sun myself, and it wasn’t until I learned how to leave the confines of storytelling and stop talking and start FEELING where I finally learned how to regulate my Nervous System, Integrate my shadows (the parts of me I was hating and rejecting)
and finally learn to feel safe in my body, and safe to love again.
That’s why our trainings teach people who’ve been frustrated by all the “work” they’ve done that has led them chasing their tail,
and finally create healthy relationships in their homes, their families, and with themselves.
Julie was kind enough to share the distinction after years of Counselling led her still feeling frustrated, and seeing how only a few months of the Deep Inner Work, her entire relationship transformed at home.
When she did,
she felt calmer,
her sense of humour came back,
And wanted to share her story.
