“The eyes of my eyes are open” – E. E. Cummings
The human brain cannot “unsee” or “unexperience” the things we have been through. Fortunately though, we do have the ability to disconnect our traumatic memories from the pain, fear and anxiety we have connected to them.
I have a wide array of Cognitive Behavioral and NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) techniques that can stop the suffering while validating the wrongness of what has happened to you. Better still, you don’t have to re-tell your story in ways that hurt you in order to get to a place of peace.

Why Bunnies Don’t Get PTSD
“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it.”
We humanfolk think we are SO smart! And yet, that very thinking gets in our way and makes things worse all the time!
When people go through a traumatic event, our bodies do everything they can to protect us. Our pelvic floors tighten, we squeeze our dorsal vagus nerve which tells our neocortex to bugger off so that our bodies flood with reactive cortisol and adrenaline, giving us the energy the body thinks we need in order to get away from the threat.
Sounds good, right? That adrenaline can be really helpful if we are trying to run out of the path of a speeding car. The cortisol would be handy if we get hit because it swells up in our cells, creating a buffer for that first pain.
