As someone who faced the trauma of narcissistic abuse when I was younger, I remember thinking to myself that no one else in the whole world could truly relate to what I was going through. I always felt there was something wrong but that nobody at that time would feel comfortable talking about the elephant in the room. Outwardly, I enjoyed a nice house, clothes and hobbies. However, what people saw from the outside was not what was going on on the inside. What I came to understand later, however, is that such a situation is not that unusual. Many people suffer from controlling relationships with their parents, siblings or others in their life. Sadly, suffering from ‘gaslighting’ is only too common. Trying to please those around us is understandable, of course, but when you know you can never live up to expectations no matter how hard you try can mean feeling utterly alone and unworthy.
So, if you think no one else really gets it – that narcissistic abuse (and other forms of emotional abuse, for that matter) leaves you on your own – then think again. Professional help is out there that can help you. As a transformational life coach, a Reiki practitioner and a somatic body coach, I can help you. After all, I know what it is like to suffer in a way that felt like I was isolated from the world. I know what it is like to try and suppress deep emotions following abuse and I know how outward achievements in later life cannot always make up for the emotional baggage many of us carry. In short, you are not alone. You are not a fake. You are not unworthy. You are not weak even if you are emotionally vulnerable. I have changed my life around and I can help you to do so, as well, in a supportive and safe environment.
