About the resource guides

These free trauma recovery resource guides make the complex simple and aim to help both survivors and the therapists working with them to better navigate the recovery journey.

Trauma Survivors’ Resource Guide (100+ pages) provides neurobiology-based, practical advice to help with flashbacks, triggers, and managing our mental health after trauma. This resource explains in accessible terms how trauma impacts the brain and what can be done to relieve its debilitating symptoms and contains a series of helpful articles that dig deep into both my personal experience of traumatic distress, and also the science of how to relieve it. It also features resources and tools that survivors can use to better manage traumatic symptoms and the very understandable distress that they cause.

Guide for Therapists: A Three Phase Approach to Trauma Treatment (50+ pages)
Trauma recovery isn’t easy, and it’s imperative that every therapist approaches the work with the edict, ‘First do no harm.’ But that’s easier said than done, because after trauma the brain both wants to avoid thinking and talking about what happened, and is also sensitised to that content. This results in a re-activated nervous system that can block the healing process – increasing, rather than decreasing, trauma symptoms. The answer is to work in a phased manner, building safety and stabilisation before attempting to process traumatic material, and – just as crucially – to continue beyond to consolidation, integration and reconnection. This Guide shows you exactly how to do that, detailing three phases to work through sequentially in therapy and what that also looks like from the client’s perspective. A must-read for anyone working therapeutically with trauma!
