As an Abuse Survivor Coach, I enjoy helping the victims of child sexual abuse heal and thrive. The first step in their recovery process is to realize they already possess the power to heal and restore themselves. Yet convincing my clients of this can be quite a challenge. Why? Because most don’t believe it.
Children are too young to understand the concept of personal power. They aren’t old enough to claim their power unless someone teaches them how to do it. As you can imagine, sexual abuse teaches them the opposite. It overwhelms them with a sense of powerlessness.
That’s why, when I tell my clients they already have all the power they need, some act as though I’m speaking ancient Greek. It does not compute. Abuse of any kind strips its victims of their personal power. Sexual abuse is particularly damaging. But when it happens to a child, day after day and year after year, the effect is devastating.
So I created my “Take Your Power Back” summit to interview other professionals working with the victims of abuse. I wanted to hear how these experts help their clients process the trauma from abuse and reclaim their personal power.
If you’re an abuse survivor, the truth is you’re not hopelessly broken. You’re not destined to struggle for the rest of your life because of what happened to you.
You can take control of your life and move it in a healthier direction. You can heal your brain. You can heal your body. You can restore your emotional health. You can regain your personal power. You can. You already possess the ability to do this.
Are you ready to take this next step on your healing journey? If so, my FREE “Take Your Life Back” summit might be just what you need to begin.
I’ve interviewed more than twenty professional therapists, coaches, teachers, experts, healers, and trauma specialists, who share their unique approach to healing and thriving after childhood trauma.
This online event is your chance to listen to these knowledgeable people share how they have helped the victims of abuse and trauma heal their lives. Not only is this summit FREE but you’ll also receive a FREE gift from each of these professionals.
Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? To get started, go here: http://www.takeyourpowerbacksummit.com/
