Hi, I’m Dawn Croydon-Fowler, welcome to Ultimately Healing Podcast Show.
I want to share in this podcast, what to expect from me and what I hope to provide for you
My focus here is on people like you who experienced trauma and difficulties from their families which it has affected many things in your life.
Be sure to listen all the way through to find out how to keep in touch.
Here you will learn how your experiences as a child and adolescent has part of your family, affected you in a number of ways.
It’s not about blaming your parents as most parents do their best often based on their own upbringing. It’s about learning how it affected you and hopefully not passing that trauma onto ourselves or others. In particular our children.
Our upbringing can affect our self-esteem, our intimate relationships. Whether or not we have an addiction because I don’t believe that you can have an addictive personality as we cope in life, using whatever we can to get by, and often what we use isn’t good for us. Especially if we use it to excess.
An important part of this all is having the tools to live your life. This would be:
Learning some techniques to manage ruminating thoughts that often plague us. Understanding how our bodies affect our we feel
Working to have balance in our lives and not making it just about our jobs, other people or even just ourselves.
We are not an island. We are affected by others and others affect us.
What else you can expect from me:
Well, I will be providing you content on how your relationship with your parents affected your relationships.
This could be relationships with your romantic partners, relationships at work, or our friendships.
Very often these relationships mimic our families. A lot of the time when we are triggered by their behaviours, we are re-hurting old wounds from our families when the situations are similar.
When we find ourselves “over-reacting” in inverted commas to certain people, it could be on some level, they remind us of someone that’s hurt us in the past.
You know sometimes we just can’t get one with someone. They haven’t don’t anything to us but we, for some unknown reason, don’t like them.
Interesting isn’t it?
Also looking at how you could be affected by your siblings.
You know there is so much research on Birth order and how that can affect your outlook online. Whether you were the eldest child, middle child, or an only child.
I will also be providing content for us as parents with adult children. Sometimes what happens, due to our own upbringing, we make mistakes when our children were young. We can see the car crash that has happened in their lives but doesn’t know what to do about it.
We often feel ashamed, guilty, and confused as we are often judged harshly as being a rubbish parents but we did the best we could with what we knew how.
But no one tells us what we can do now if we have learned that some of our choices impacted on the well-being of our children.
Maybe your child has turned against you
Maybe no matter how much you try to help them, their behaviour just seems to get worse.
Or all your life is consumed with your children because you feel guilty about the things you have done in the past
The channel is about families which I feel is the linchpin of society. It’s the glue that holds us all together when it goes right. Often, for many reasons it doesn’t.
I’m not saying I will be suggesting forgiveness, reconciliation etc if that’s not what you want but it’s about making the most of your life so that that toxicity you experience won’t continue to spread.
As it does
Even if it stops you from connecting with others because you feel that everyone will treat you like your parents did.
Or if you feel consumed with your family and your past you don’t have time to experience anything that life has to offer.
You won’t be able to present your best self.
What to expect from the channel – quotes from John Bradshaw – a bit about my experience.
The channel is about you not me.
Just as a disclaimer
The restrictions as a therapist in Private Practice means that I can’t answer private individual messages around personal issues directly
However, if you make suggestions around what type of content you what to hear and see, I can support you that way.
I’m looking forward to doing this So join me every Wednesday where we will release a new episode of the Ultimately Healing Podcast.
I will also be posting daily on Instagram if you want to see what I am doing there.
