FREE trauma resources
Are you a trauma survivor, or do you work with traumatised people?
If so, we want to help you. We have a range of free trauma resources to download – relevant to dissociation, child sexual abuse, suicide and self-harm, dissociative identity disorder, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, and attachment issues.
We generally send out two emails a week.
Our midweek email is called ‘Three Quick Quotes‘ and comes with another free resource each week, along with helpful quotes from books relating to therapy and trauma, and a snapshot of Carolyn’s week – as well as her latest blog (usually weekly).
Then on a weekend we send out info on courses, webinars, books, often with special discounts for our subscribers, or news of upcoming new releases.

Three Phase Approach to Treating Trauma
When trauma survivors try to talk about what happened to them, often it is triggering and destabilising to do so. The three phase approach to treating trauma takes this into account. Read more about each stage and Carolyn’s own experience in this useful guide.
Triggers are reminders, conscious or unconscious, of traumatic events from the past. They can be overwhelming, debilitating, disabling – but they can also be guides as to what still needs to be processed. In this extended article, Carolyn explores the neuroscience of triggers and provides insights into not just what goes on in the brain when we are triggered, but crucially what we can do about it.
