For survivors of abuse, shame can be one of the most pervasive feelings we carry well after the abuse has ended. As a result of trauma, we come to believe that we are at fault or to blame for what has happened.
This then transforms into a deeply rooted way of being that impacts our sense of self. For example, we might come to believe that we are unlovable because we were abused. We might come to believe that there is inherently something bad or wrong about who we are. In other words, all of our judgments about "self" are derogatory or negative.
Boy have I been there! And I can't wait to share with you what helped me put an end to the constant self-blame and judgment.
I felt ashamed and blamed myself for being a victim of child abuse. Thanks to Rachel's program, I no longer see myself as a victim, instead, I see myself as a strong survivor. I feel I can finally let go of my past and move forward with my life. For the first time in my life, I feel excited about my present and my future.
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 leave the class feeling confident that you can release self-judgment and blame so you can be happier and healthier.
I have every confidence in Rachel's work and feel very, very fortunate to have had her expert guidance. I am thrilled to be living my life free of the fear, shame and secrecy that had held me captive and weighed on my heart for so long. Rachel guided me to learn exactly what I needed to understand to move forward.
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 shame. It sucked, but I found a way out and I would love to support you in doing that as well.
I hope you will join me for 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.
