My guest on the programme today is Sarah Griffiths and she is a trauma and abuse therapists.
We recorded this show just as the lockdown was taking shape across the world. Sarah, at that point, was stuck in Bali and trying to get back to Australia.
It was good that Sarah found the time to speak to me, given that she was in the middle of trying to negotiating a flight home.
Sarah was a successful businesswoman, seeming high functioning and from the outside successful. She had a great job, the husband, the house and the children. It all looked fantastic; however, on the inside, life was slowly unravelling. Sarah battled her extreme insecurities and lack of self-confidence for many years; she almost committed suicide.
In her despair that she found the strength to pull herself out of it. And start the long journey towards recovery.
The seeds of her trauma started with childhood bullying and culminated at the age of 45, caught in a narcissistic marriage.
Our conversation is the story of her journey towards recovery.
Sarah Griffiths Trauma and Abuse Therapists.
Her journey led to her training as an RTT therapist, specialising in Trauma and Abuse. The lead to developing her signature system, a methodology to help people rapidly heal from the debilitating effects of past abuse.
What next Post COVID 19
Outside of the critical industries and health professions, lockdown life for many has been a surreal journey. Life has been on hold; however, the end is in sight, and it is time to be thinking about what next.
We are in for a journey that is for sure, as the threat passes the world will return to a new normal.
What Did You Discover?
Many people in China valued the lockdown; it is rare for families to spend extended times together. For them, it was a precious time.
It was an opportunity to discover more about ourselves. In the west, some found they needed less stuff and spent less money. It is amazing the UK banks reported that £6 billion of credit card debt was repaid.
Some people discovered they could work from home and lots of travels was not necessary.
Other now dread the prospect of returning to work and others are not sure what they will be returning to.
Maybe it is a time to change, have you been making plans or waiting?
Did You Take the Time to Get Stuff Done?
It is interesting given space and opportunity to do something, many people just sit in neutral. For some, they binge on Netflix or find other distraction.
If that was not you. Well done, but please read on.
NEW VIRTUAL EVENT
There is a new virtual event planned for July, It will be 5 days and we are going to nail this subject. It will be those that can implement over the coming months that will thrive is a post COVID world.
I want to hear from people on both sides of the coin, those who are good at being productive and from those who find it a challenge.
We all get the same hours in a day and some of us achieve so much more than others.
What is the story for you?
