Narcissistic and Trauma Informed Coaching

Over the past 22 years Ros has supported many people through her Counselling Coaching Skills. Her main focus is Maternal Narcissim and recovery from Narcissistic Abuse.

Narcissism can be found in many relationships including family members, partners, colleagues at work, the boss, friends, and acquaintances to name a few. Because Trauma is found in the body – a somatic approach is needed in order for the person to heal.

Ros upskilled to include Narcissistic and Trauma Informed Coaching.

Recognising if you're in a narcissistic relationship can be hard, especially when someone is really self-centred. But here are some things to look out for:

  • Self-centeredness: If your partner always wants attention and doesn't care about your feelings, it might be a sign.
  • Lack of empathy: If they don't understand or care about how you feel, it's a red flag.
  • Always needing validation: If they always want you to tell them they're great and get upset if you don't, it's not healthy.
  • Trying to control you: If your partner always wants to be in charge and doesn't respect your boundaries, that's a problem.
  • Playing with your emotions: Sometimes they might be really nice, but then suddenly mean. It can be confusing and hurtful.
  • Only thinking about themselves: If they don't care about what you want or need, and only focus on themselves, it's not fair to you.
  • Making you feel alone: If they try to keep you away from your friends and family, that's not right.
  • Always seeking attention: If they get jealous or upset when others pay attention to you, it's a sign of a problem.
  • Not taking responsibility: If they never admit when they're wrong and always blame others, it's not a good sign.
  • The more of these above traits you recognise in your relationship with the Narcissist – the more likely it is that you are in a Narcissistic relationship.

    Maternal Narcissism

    The way a Mum with narcissistic traits treats her daughter can have long-lasting effects on her feelings and thoughts. The daughter might have trouble trusting others, worry about being left alone, and feel bad about herself. Making good friendships might also be tough because of how her mom played with her emotions.

    Sometimes, it can be surprising and sad to realize that a relationship that started off with so much hope and happiness has turned into something hurtful and damaging. It's tough to accept that someone you care about, like a partner, friend, or family member, is not treating you well or showing genuine concern for you.

    You may have been loyal and kind to them for a long time, and it's natural to want to believe that things will get better if you just try a little harder. You might think that if you stay committed and show them kindness, they will eventually change and treat you with love and respect.

    But it's important to understand that being in a relationship with a narcissist doesn't work that way. They usually don't change unless they can benefit from it somehow.

    It's very important to know that this is NOT YOUR FAULT and you deserve to be treated with kindness and respect by the people you care about. If you find yourself in a situation like this, it's important to talk to a person who has been trained in this field, who can help and support you.

    Why Me?

    (Check out my training in the "about")

    Apart from training in Counselling and Narcissistic and Trauma Informed Coaching I too have been in a Narcissistic relationship and have experienced my power being taken away and the manipulation and pain that goes with that. Even though we are all on individual journeys and none of us are the same I will have an understanding of the pain you have endured.

    It’s not easy getting out of any Narcissistic relationship, but there is hope. Connecting with a Therapist/Coach who is trained in this area/field is important.

    There is Hope

    It is possible to break the cycle of Narcissistic abuse, you can start to live the life you were born to live. You change the patterns that have been trained to have and you can start to learn your own way of being – your own pathway. This work is important so that you don’t repeat it in another relationship, and it is so worth it.

    With the combined training of Counselling, Narcissistic Trauma Informed Coaching I can provide the tools necessary for your healing to begin.

    REMEMBER!!!!! This has been done TO YOU – it is NOT YOUR FAULT
