Surviving horrific abuse and struggling to find validation and support can be an ongoing stress for those who suffer, powerful imprints of traumatic experiences remain and often bleed back into life or may completely overtake our conscious personality. Some of us are lucky to find therapists who are able to contain the intensity of the feelings that remain, but in my experience such therapists are rare.
I was moved and overpowered my Alex’s story when I came across his blog, Evolution of Self earlier in the year. Alex has asked me to share his story here, so if it resonates with you please follow the links and show him some support. We need each other on this healing pathway when professional support is so hard to find.
