Providing A Trauma Recovery Service, For Victims Who Can’t Afford It.

Update posted by Natasha Wilkins On Apr 04, 2018

CASE 1 - Trauma caused by violent rape

"I wanted to do the trauma recovery process to face having been raped and to stop it’s aftermath of feeling worthless and desperate.

It wasn’t until during the Trauma Recovery process that I realised how much this unpleasant experience was still affecting me. It was affecting my interactions with people, my relationships, and how I felt about myself and my capabilities. The process was enlightening and empowering in terms of self discovery and self-realisation, I was able to speak up for myself defend myself and relieve myself of unnecessary guilt, shame and self blame.

Throughout the process I was engaging with myself, whilst being safely and compassionately guided through stages which I felt in control of, and I moved through each at my own pace.

Each step ended and began through my own realisation which meant I was not having to rely and trust in another person's expertise to tell me that I am ready to move on. Which meant that I had a true sense of completion, closure and preparedness to move on into my next phase. For this reason this Trauma Recovery was very different to other methods of “healing” or treatment I had tried previously. I had tried counselling, holistic and other healing methods which had really only made me bury my pain and suffering to make it easier to scrape by, day by day. I had not returned to a normal state of health, mind or strength. My normal state was suppression and false-happiness, not health. The reason the Trauma Recovery process worked so well for me is because it was highly practical and logical yet worked on all levels, physical, emotional and the undeniably spiritual parts of a person. The process was bespoke to me as the practitioners adapted the process to my situation and my needs. It was the first time in a long time I didn’t feel the need to apologise for crying. I felt supported through parts of the process that I found challenging. The most surprising thing is that after huge doubt about whether I would be able to uncover my blocked memories, as I had tried so many times to do this on my own, I managed to remember them thanks to the encouragement and patience I was shown. I have never felt such massive amounts of relief and empowerment, it is easily one of the best and most beneficial experiences of my life. I am now able to know that the rape happened but know it no longer affects my current way of being. To anyone who is wanting to recover from any trauma I cannot recommend this process enough. If you wish to regain control of yourself, your mind, and your strength and claim back the parts of you that you have lost or have been stolen, then I can hand on heart say this is a way if not the best way you can do this." Rape victim.


CASE 2 - Trauma caused by repeated and violent rape during childhood

"Before my Trauma recovery session at Soul Happy I had previously spent 20 years receiving NHS counselling and therapy for depression, anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I have also spent at least 20 years having to take prescribed medication from my doctor to help me cope with a horrific sexual abuse trauma I suffered when I was a teenager. I am certainly not knocking the support I received from the NHS, but the vital point I wanted to make is that my Trauma Recovery at Soul Happy has had such a dramatic and positive impact on my life that more people deserve to receive this treatment. After my Trauma Recovery session at Soul Happy, with the practitioners, I was finally able to release all the unfair pain I suffered. It is such a powerful and straightforward process that has left me feeling stronger, empowered and so much more resilient. I now have boundaries that I am able to honour confidently and positively which has been truly empowering and transformational.

This recovery process has been a life changing experience for me and has given me the tools to properly heal and recover from a trauma that has been causing a tremendous amount of pain and torture in my life for 30 years. All I can say is how grateful I am for the beautiful calm, safe environment they provided for me so I could walk in and face this trauma. At every step of the way, my needs where met with empathy, support, kindness, patience and calm. The imprint and conditioning that the trauma left me with has finally been removed through this recovery process and I now finally have my life back Two weeks on from from Trauma recovery session, I am still gaining more confidence and strength and for the first time in over 20 years I can truly be myself without feeling the shame and guilt of previously wrongly feeling that the abuse had somehow been my fault. It is so empowering to be able to say “It was not my fault”. This was a life saving treatment that has helped me get my life back and the trauma is finally becoming just a memory as the deep painful emotional wounds that have been causing havoc in my life are now healing. I can wholeheartedly recommend this treatment as the results have been life changing and more people deserve to receive this treatment. I am extremely grateful to the practitioners as they gave me the light to walk through the darkness and heal all the pain so I can now finally move on with my life. I am now free to be me." Rape victim.


CASE 3 - Trauma caused by rape

"For many years, I had been acutely aware that a series of sexually traumatic events from my past were still having a negative impact on me. However, though I had tried to overcome the trauma through various other methods, they only buried the pain and I still found myself triggered by certain situations or people. Therefore, I was left with overwhelming feelings of worthlessness, shame, and despair that often resulted in maladaptive self-destructive coping mechanisms. I felt unable to live up to my full potential to create positive change in the world because the trauma limited me to feeling belittled and powerless. The practitioners offered a unique solution to recovering from my trauma. Their approach differs to the standard treatment in that it focuses on processing the experiences and empowering the victim, rather than simply managing the symptoms or suppressing the memories. The incredible amount of time, compassion, and energy the practitioners offer cannot be matched in other treatment modalities, yet was absolutely necessary for my full recovery. The process allowed me to finally acknowledge that I had been raped, which was a huge step in my recovery. The results of the treatment have been profound and liberating; it provided me with the inner strength I needed to reclaim my life after the trauma. I wholeheartedly wish that the many others who have had similar experiences to me gain access to these sessions. The impact would be transformational." Rape victim.
