CPTSD: how to heal from it (WITHOUT getting frustrated with yourself!)



https://www.spartanlifecoach.com/Loving-Inner-Guide-Course

This new course has been developed specifically to massively accelerate your healing/therapeutic process by removing a little-known block that is holding everyone back.

So you’re willing to go to therapy and do courses.

You’ve spent your hard earned money on sessions, books, seminars.

You’ve made the effort and given it an embarrassingly large amount of time.

You’ve humbled yourself. You’ve “been vulnerable”. You’ve revealed your inner most to total strangers.

All in the name of therapeutic progress so you can get back to living your normal life.

And yet…

Progress is patchy. Its slow.

You move forward. Then you move back. A modality or therapist seems to be working, only for you to later hit a brick wall or feel so dispirited you just want to give up.

Why?

There is a part of the healing narrative that is a little embarrassing for clients, therapists and coaches alike. It’s a prickly topic. Its boundary breaking and impossibly, excruciatingly intimate.

BUT

It is exactly and precisely here where the essential work is. We can create a catalyst to your process and your progress here.

Whether you are a therapist/coach or client (many are both, that’s ok too!) you need to understand this simple key element to push things forward.

Simple questions like this would be a start:

1. How would you rate your relationship with yourself on a scale of 1 to 10?
Do you retain new information easily or is it very difficult for you?

3. How efficient are you at regulating your emotions or do they frequently overpower you?

4. Can you pay attention for extended periods of time or do you drift off?

5. Do you often begin tasks only to abandon them half way through?

These are just simple (and not particularly penetrating) examples of questions we could ask clients/ourselves before beginning therapy or a course.

WHY?

Because these questions indicate the level of “boss ability” you have and whether you are a “good friend to yourself”.

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THAT MAKE?

Read the questions above. Arent all these things absolutely necessary to completing a course, a seminar, reading a book on psychology/healing or attending counselling/therapy for months?

This course is a lightweight, easy to consume and adopt first step towards developing better “executive function” and a stronger, more supportive relationship with the self.

If you DO have these two things in order:

-you will be able to retain information and organise your life more easily
– there will be less dramatic outbursts of emotion, theatrical cries of “WHY AM I NOT GOOD ENOUGH” and less interpersonal turbulence with the people in your life
– less temptation to use old/not helpful/poisonous coping strategies like drink, food, drugs, toxic relationships and so on to avoid the sense that “nothing you do ever works”
– better ability to concentrate and pay attention for longer periods on tasks you need to get done, skills you are learning and the therapeutic process in general
– you will feel optimistic and resilient, there will still be bad days but you will be able to track clearly the progress you are making which will keep you from the “pit of bleak despair”.

We must be able to be a supportive friend to ourselves for our brains to function properly.

This is a psychological and neurological issue. That means that elements of what blocks you are almost certainly physical. There is some debate but it is largely agreed “executive function”/”boss ability” is located in the prefrontal cortex.

If your brain is not functioning well, it will be unlikely you will be able to cope with the stress of real therapeutic work. Why would/should we expect you to cope with a counselling programme if you struggle to go to the shops without issue? It doesn’t make sense.

This course is simple, uses no jargon, is step by step and largely requires only the simplest written exercises (15 mins a day) and to listen to a couple of audio hypnosis before sleep, and one you can listen to while doing your daily chores.

This course will NOT recover a damaged executive function or self relationship completely but it will get you to a point where you can cope with and retain the progress you make in a coaching context.
