The fear of abandonment is extremely common in those of us who have been abused. When it comes to abandonment, we are very much driven by a fear of the unknown. We do not know if the people we are connecting to may one day withdraw their protection or support.
"People always leave" can be a common inner belief we hold. Some of the behaviors that we fall into as survivors to try to avoid being abandoned can set us up for failure in our relationships.
Boy have I been there! And I can't wait to share with you what helped me put an end to this paralyzing fear.
Rachel helped me understand the impact of the abuse on my behavior as an adult and helped me find ways to address it. Her coaching style is warm, understanding, and non-judgmental. At the same time, she has an ability to dig deep on issues that really matter and not let you off the hook until you've addressed them. The tools she equips you with are life-changing.
In other words, this isn't a boring ol' lecture, but rather an opportunity for you to explore, take notes, and engage -- so plan to listen with pen & paper ready so you can capture all of the insights I know you'll gain from this training.
And of course my intention is that you finish the class with not only the desire to take risks and develop relationships, but also the confidence that you can actually do it.
I was in an unhealthy relationship and my PTSD symptoms were taking over my life making it hard to function socially. I was a lost soul. This was the first time I ever felt seen, understood and accepted on a deep level. I am now creating healthy relationships for the first time in my life. I never thought I would ever see the light. Thank you Rachel from the bottom of my heart for showing me the way.
I want to put a stop to survivors of abuse feeling broken, unfixable and absolutely frustrated because it seems nothing they do is helping. Honestly, it really pisses me off when survivors are not able to have the lives and relationships they deserve. Whenever I hear stories of survivors giving up,
falling deeper and deeper into despair, or worse, being further traumatized by people who are supposed to help, I get so upset. It also reminds me of my past and how excruciating life was for twenty plus years.
I was definitely convinced that there was no way out of the pain, constant instability, and fear of abandonment. It sucked, but I found a way out and I would love to support you in doing that as well.
I hope you will download this master class that has been specifically designed to help you reach a place where you feel confident, joyful, and empowered.
Rachel has thought through a curriculum that really helps you to learn the key skills you need specifically as a sexual abuse survivor.
