Congratulations on taking the first step towards realizing your potential and entering an exciting new phase of life!

I offer life coaching to adult survivors of child abuse. If you Google “child abuse”, the following definition pops up:

“noun: child abuse
1. physical maltreatment or sexual molestation of a child.”

While this is true, it is not really the full definition. Children can be abused without anyone laying a finger on them. In the Google definition, I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that neglect is included under “physical maltreatment”. This obviously does not require slapping, hitting, kicking, punching, etc. However, one can be sexually abused without being physically molested. This can include suggestive or explicit sexual comments, forcing the child to watch sexual acts, exposing the child to sexual behavior, or even touching the child with sexual intent that is not in the genital area. This can be harder for many victims to define.

The Google definition also leaves out a MAJOR form of abuse: emotional.  This is sometimes even harder to deal with as an adult. For many, “abuse” seems too strong of a term for what they experienced. They may realize that their parents were harsh or psychologically and emotionally manipulative, but they are not always aware of how this impacted them. Others are painfully aware but don’t always feel “entitled” to explore this because they don’t want to claim that they were “abused”.

My job as a life coach is to allow that non-judgmental space for an individual who wants to explore their past. I can act as a sounding board and a guide for questions such as these:
  • Was I really abused?
  • Are my memories real?
  • Is there anyone out there with a similar situation?
  •  How has this impacted my relationships? My family?
  •  How has this affected my productivity and professional life?
  •  How can I live up to my potential?
  • Is this as good as it gets?
Together, we’ll get some answers and get you living the life you deserve! This is such an exciting journey you’re about to embark on! It’s not always easy, but it is so worth it. I can’t wait to get started on it with you!
