While training as a counsellor, I volunteered with survivors of sexual abuse at Safe Space in Dunfermline, Fife, and with people who suffered from substance misuse at the Drug & Alcohol Project (DAPL) in Kirkcaldy, Fife. During this time, I realised just how important it was for people to make progress in groups as well as individually. A realisation that has only grown over the years. As a result, I began running my own community.
So many people suffer in silence. They push down their issues until they’re all-consuming, instead of dealing with them head on. Why? Because society tells us to. But we are all the same. Perhaps not in experience, but in cause and consequence. My Life Beyond Trauma community is the perfect opportunity for individuals to realise that they are not alone.
They will gain a better understanding of themselves - and what made them the person they are today - in a safe space with authentic, like minded, understanding people. This community will help us all build healthy attachments with each other, to build trust, confidence, boundaries, to connect to our whole being and, most importantly, to become the best versions of ourselves.
My Life Beyond Trauma Community is ran based on my own values, experience and knowledge that I have developed over the years. It's what helped transform me into the person I am today. I have created my own Pyramid of Trauma Recovery so you can visualise what the recovery process looks like Click Here.
I will facilitate our community around this model and look forward to sharing regular content with you. I also plan to take the community onto a live audio platform so they can learn about various mental health topics and get support from other like minded people.
