Happy International Day of Yoga 2018


, , , , ,

In Chapter Seven of my book: Self-care Throughout Healing and Beyond                  I talk about coming back into my body through Yoga.

“When I first learned about Yoga, I felt a little intimidated by the practice. Combining breath control, simple meditation and the adoption of specific bodily postures meant that I needed to focus on many things……at the same time. I felt I was seasoned at doing each of these things in isolation but all together?

After time on the mat, practice and persistence has paid off.

Here are a few benefits I’ve noticed:

lower stress levels, calmer and more peaceful, better flexibility, increased muscle strength, and my overall athletic performance during exercise has improved

See you on the mat!

Sexual Abuse Put Me Deep into Self-Worth Debt


, , , , , ,

In Chapter Six of The Dissociate: A Memoir of Secrets and Survival of Childhood Sexual Abuse I talk about my healing continuum to the journey to wellness.

The common question amongst many survivors is, “Where am I on the healing continuum?” A question I’ve asked many specialists and therapists in the field of childhood trauma.

I believe that everyone’s journey is different but there are key areas or stages that one must go through. I remember a time when I had difficulties speaking of the abuse without crying and sobbing uncontrollably. While I can still be emotional, I’ve worked through my feelings and adjusted so I’m not tearing up all the time. That’s growth.

Here is the continuum I created plotting the different stages I experienced.

Helping is Healing

This week I had the pleasure of spending time with Theo Fleury.

We share a common thread of surviving childhood sexual abuse. Theo is a true inspiration to me. He created Breaking Free Foundation – an organization to help survivors. To provide survivors of traumatic life events with the treatment and support needed to reclaim their lives.
