Healing Chronic & Unresolved Trauma: A Life Coach’s Approach.

Your tribe determines your vibe.

Let’s face it, life can be complicated and incredibly difficult at times. So many of us are juggling things on a daily basis that can force us to neglect ourselves. Over time, that neglect can cause serious issues with our physical and mental health, how we show up at work, our friendships, relationships, and our parenting.

For those of us walking around with unresolved trauma, stress, and the general feeling of being completely overwhelmed, that unbalanced emotional state can cause unresolved trauma to trigger us. These triggers could result in turning toward unhealthy behaviors (such as drinking, overeating, sex addiction, drugs, and affairs) in hopes of masking the trauma and burying it. But we all know that we cannot bury this pain deep enough; it always rears its ugly head, especially during the most troublesome times.

True healing from any kind of trauma or bad circumstance or chronic situation takes not only time, energy, and commitment but also a good tribe of people you trust. Your tribe is an unbiased support system that remains completely neutral as they don’t intimately know the parties involved. You may feel your friends or your family can do the job, but actually they can cause more damage than do good because they have a vested interest, whereas a neutral third party like a therapist, or life or spiritual coach, can look at things from all sides without forming a judgment.

A coach does not replace a therapist. In fact, a coach can and will work in tandem with a therapist if desired, helping us work through the day-to-day decisions, helping us to make good choices, guiding us through difficult situations, and teaching us how to focus on the solution, not the issues.

Healing and becoming your best you takes work, and just like it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a tribe to heal and live your highest self.

Coaches are for all stages of life, not just trauma or healing. They are there to help guide you through life decisions such as job changes, marriage, divorce, moving, dealing with family, and more. Having a coach is a healthy approach to navigating through life’s stresses. But we are also there during the good times, not just the tough ones.

A coach can help organize our thoughts and work toward our dreams through journaling work, vision boarding, manifesting, gratitude, and meditation. Coaches help us work through big decisions, soar through mid-life changes, help us prepare for empty nest syndrome, work with us to find our passion, and help develop a wellness program.

Whatever we need, a coach will help guide us along our journey.

Remember—you are balanced; you are grounded; you are safe; you are loved.
