Resolving Complex Trauma and PTSD

Online Counseling

There is a time for studying, and there is a time for action. This page is meant to introduce you to the next step of healing.

Action!

Trauma and its processes of dissociation are complex even if it spanned only a single event or incidence. Therefore it is essential you work with someone who understands you and knows about the intricate mechanism of trauma from the inside out.

To address any trauma, you need a concise, practical and realistic approach that integrates a somatic (body) approach as well as a cognitive understanding.

A cognitive understanding assists in creating a healthy framework and makes you understand what keeps your post-trauma symptoms in place, that your coping reactions (even when apparently destructive) serves a purpose and helps to ease blame, shame, guilt, and self-reproach. This framework will give you context and a constructive perspective to start to contain and process the emotional charge related to trauma, be it developmental or incidental.

And this is where the somatic part comes in. It is through connecting with the body again that emotional residue can be processed, released or integrated thereby reversing the dissociative processes. And this needs to be done with care.

Effective therapy emphasizes containment so that you won’t feel overwhelmed again, and to assist in creating resources and resilience to work through the tough parts.

I reached out to Roland when I was going through an extremely rough period of my life, on a personal and professional level, which left me technically bed-ridden, mentally traumatized, distrustful and desperate. Roland helped me, via Skype sessions from the safety of my home thousands of miles away; deal with the manifestations of the traumas one by one, as well as contemplating and defining my feelings and getting in touch with the origin of my traumas to dissolve them without dwelling on the past. He helped me resurrect from the ashes. – Karen, US

Healing from Complex Trauma, PTSD, CPTSD, Childhood Trauma, Neglect and Abuse

Going through trauma is life changing. It alters your perception of the world and yourself. Post-Traumatic Stress, however, doesn’t have to be a life-sentence; it can be resolved! Educating yourself on your condition is a good start, but if you are struggling in life, it is no substitute for professional help. If you’re ready to take the first step towards healing, reach out, and give yourself a chance to feel better!

Working through Post-Traumatic Stress takes tremendous courage. Dealing with trauma is hard work, and it can be confusing. That’s why it is so important that you work with someone who knows recovery from the inside.

I use a cognitive and somatic (body) based psycho-therapeutic approach to effectively treat complex trauma and PTSD. My approach focuses on regulating, processing and containing; the processes of dissociation, the fight-flight-freeze-please responses and re-learning boundaries and vulnerability.

Roland is extreemly professional and caring. I felt seen, heard and understood. His sessions are of the highest quality of excellence. I felt I was in good hands, and well supported and guided. I felt empowered after each session, and grateful for the opportunity to work with him one on one. I feel capable to work through triggering situations in a more self contained and resiliant way thanks to our work together. Many thanks. – Jacqueline, South Africa

How Do These Meditations Work

There is a particular sequence in how these meditations are set-up, starting from the head and from there slowly, coming into the body, by…

  1. Addressing disconnection and dissociation, the head and the busyness of thought.
  2. Working with the fight, flight and freeze activations, and see how it relates to tensions in the neck, back of the head, and the adrenals and kidneys.
  3. Slowly moving further into the body by going into the heart and the chest area, allowing the feeling, weight, heaviness, and sadness to be felt and brought into awareness, to help you process emotional residue.
  4. Helping you work through anxiety, self-image, fatigue, depression and boundaries related to; the liver, diaphragm, solar plexus, kidneys and the lower-back area.
  5. Inviting you to touch-in with silence, while managing healthy boundaries and allowing vulnerability.

I love to meditate, but it is difficult for me to avoid spacing out or getting overwhelmed by deep emotions. Your meditations help me to become balanced, being present, and not going too deep or get lost. Thank you for putting in so much effort, also with the email-reminders and short articles. I find them very clear and helpful. – Amber, Germany

Why You Should Get These Meditations

If you want to touch in with more than just the cognitive part of trauma, these meditations will help you on your journey towards recovery.

They are educational, but have that element of taking you slowly back into the body, and help you process emotional residue that is ‘stored-up’ in there.

The different themes go into the various aspects of Post-Traumatic Stress and gently guide you to feel yourself again.

You are not alone.

Make that next step in your process.

I’ve always wanted to use meditation to my benefit. But, I was afraid because I didn’t know what I was doing and with severe disassociation, I knew I needed to be careful. The best thing about Roland’s meditations is that they are simple and efficient, and they don’t overwhelm you. I still have a long way to go, but they are teaching me how to sit with my emotions. To be able to acknowledge them and not, as before, push them away gives me back some power. I believe it’s the beginning of my healing process. I haven’t felt hope in a long time, and I can’t hold onto it for long, but just knowing it’s still there for me is amazing. – Kristin, USA
