Complex PTSD

Trauma during childhood and teenage years leaves fractured pieces of yourself, existing  in time. As you begin to accept those child parts that feel abandoned, you will begin to realize that time is not as linear as we have been programmed to perceive it. 


All of those parts of you exists now. You can reach out to them and bring them into yourself to integrate those fractured parts, so they do not feel rejected and abandoned. 
This will help you to be more in the present, so that you can think more clearly and see what you want and what you can do with your life. 
C-PTSD (Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is caused by being in on-going emotional / mental abuse from people that you feel entrapped with. There is no way to leave the situation, when you are a child and you are stuck in whatever situations your parents put you into. 

Emotional abuse and other kinds of abuse cause emotional wounds.


These emotional wounds are not able to heal while you are still in the abusive situations. Usually children are so used to the way they are living that there is no real frame of reference to know that you are being abused, or the degree to which the abuse is. 


Wounded children feel abandoned in time, and there is no proper integration of these child parts into the whole. It is like there is still a wounded child inside of you that is waiting for someone to rescue them. Doing inner child work can help the fractured parts to become integrated. 


If you have C-PTSD from childhood trauma, abuse, or chaotic events, your may have fractures and wounds in your subconscious. This can cause depression, anxiety disorders, OCD and other kinds of mental illness.


The feeling that you do not belong anywhere and that you are out of place can come from the fractured child parts feeling abandoned. They need to be accepted and nurtured. 


I am working on some hypnosis audios for healing the wounded child and helping the fractured parts to integrate. If you want to get updates about the audios, feel free to follow the Facebook Page,or to sign up on the contact page at the Gentlekindness coachingweb site.

  1. Hi Annie,
    I see my CPTSD now as an amazing gift. A reminder to be still, feel the illusion of the emotion fully, invite it in for a heart to heart and let it stay as long as it likes, it has something to say and a lesson to teach and maybe an action that needs to be taken but has been avoided due to fear of a loss of love that is an illusion as well.

    These days I am the envy of anyone who is a victim of Narcissistic and psychopathic abuse. My psychopathic ex dropped dead of a heart attack on the 8th of May. I learned what I had suspected, that absolutely EVERYTHING that was impressive about him was a lie. Never happened, never existed. Fantastic detailed stories that never happened. He was not a lawyer. He was a grifter at best. But in all the revelations I have had a profound healing in my view towards him. I truly do feel love and compassion for the life of pageantry, illusion and lies he felt he had to live. It was a miserable life with no personal growth, like a hamster on a wheel, learning the same lessons over and over, yet learning nothing. A groundhog day movie of life is the Narcissists life, a juggling act of lies to keep in the air at all costs. For me the light in the darkness of 20 years with him, is that it lead me to the unconditional love for myself that I realize now I could never get from another human being, a love so deep and wide that many sadly will never know. I do believe the deeper the suffering, the request for help, the willingness to be open to the Universe and the path markers it puts down for us, the more profound the healing and ultimately, love for all that has happened. xo
