Inner Child Healing
Inner Child Healing is a process of addressing and healing the emotional wounds that we experienced during childhood. It involves recognizing and healing the negative patterns and beliefs that developed as a result of past traumatic or difficult experiences.
During childhood, we may have experienced different forms of trauma, neglect, abuse, or abandonment that can create emotional wounds. We can divide these difficult experiences into two general categories: big “T” Traumas including sexual, physical and emotional abuse, the death of a parent, violence and addiction in the family, or incarceration & little “t” traumas which include less severe but still highly distressing experiences when emotional, psychological, physical, and spiritual needs were not met or supported with love and care. These experiences impact our beliefs, behaviors, and emotions as adults. For example, a person who experienced neglect as a child may struggle with feelings of low self-worth or have difficulties with forming healthy relationships as an adult.
Inner ChildHealing involves revisiting and acknowledging these childhood experiences, as well as the emotions and beliefs associated with them. Through this process, we can identify the negative patterns and beliefs that are holding us back from thriving and work towards healing and empowerment.
