Childhood Trauma

Have you ever wondered how you went from a baby to where you are today?

Childhood trauma could come from a plethora of places; Your parents, siblings, caregivers, extended family, teachers, friends, and even situations like natural disasters, conflict, separation, illness, and poor socio-economic background. 

When children do not have their needs met and experience prolonged physical and emotional pain, they experience trauma. This often leads to the formation of a belief. While this belief may have served you in the past, it wasn't meant to run as a program for the rest of your life. This is why it becomes important to process childhood trauma. The past may be over but it only really becomes the past once we make peace with it.

What does childhood trauma look like in your today?
