Trauma & PSTD Healing Specialty :
ALANON / ACA / SIA Support
Those of us who've had a childhood or adult experience with an alcoholic (qualifier) can grow to see that we suffer challenges which manifest as dysfunctional thinking and behavior.
These result from physiological processes coupled with psychological and behavioral patterns that cannot be adequately addressed by conventional therapies. This specific therapeutic approach is closely coupled with that for complex post-traumatic stress disorder and PTSD.
Our approach in supporting ALANON / ACA clients recovery:
+ Developing and enhancing inner strength and sense of worthiness
+ Gently begin the process of "feeling one's feelings"
+ Re-negotiating physiological dysfunction via therapeutic touch
+ Separating "the trigger" behavior from the alcholic and oneself
+ Rebuilding and taking responsibility for their lives
+ Gradual return to self-regulation without the use of substances
+ Learning to sense, develop, and set healthy boundaries
+ Coach clients in working the program with a mentor, the Twelve
