There is a Way to Heal from Childhood Wounding
If you were wounded emotionally in childhood and did not get your emotional and physical needs met, you may be experiencing painful emotions, uncomfortable body sensations, and negative beliefs – often with a sense of powerlessness. These reactions from long ago can get frozen in time forming wounded child parts which are stuck in the hurtful experiences – stuck in a trance. When this childhood wounding happens, your brain makes a recording of it, like filming a home movie. It’s the brain’s way of memorializing the experience.
I use a specific model of therapy, The Developmental Needs Meeting Strategy (DNMS) to help you get unstuck from the past, by processing the disturbing events from the past, stored in your mental in-box, and then archiving them. Many of my adult clients report that after processing wounding events from childhood with the DNMS model, they realize they are not reliving the old painful experience, they are just reliving their reaction to it, and they can now reflect on the triggering event without overreacting. They no longer engage in unwanted behaviors and beliefs, and they no longer feel lost, empty or chronically insecure. The adult self can respond to a stressful event in a healthy way. They are UNSTUCK!
