Adult ACEs Recovery Toolkit Testimonial

I’m not a prisoner of my thoughts and feelings anymore. I feel like I’ve done the biggest jail break ever.

ACEs Recovery Toolkit

We love to receive feedback from people who have completed any of our programmes.  The following is a copy of a letter we received from a participant who recently completed the Adult ACEs Recovery Toolkit.

“Before I took part in the ACE course I was filled with doubt, insecurities and fear.

A life time of trauma is very difficult to deal with.

You are lost, without a map, shelter or means of escape. All you have is your thoughts and memories with no place to put them. And nothing to judge them against.

The isolation was raw. I lived in a constant state of fear.

I didn’t have a sense of self. Guilt was rife. I thought it was all my fault and my responsibility to ‘fix’ what I hadn’t broken.

Irrational invasive thoughts intruded into my head telling me ‘I wasn’t good enough’, ‘I didn’t deserve love’ etc. Round and round they went.

I was listening to these thoughts. I was believing these thoughts. Not knowing it was automatic negative self thought cause through childhood trauma.

This was one of the many reasons the ACE course helped me to recognise this, and other behaviours that I didn’t understand.

It was through this understanding, and looking at my adverse experience’s as a child through a different lens, that I began to see it wasn’t my fault.

The course gently reminds you that you didn’t experience things as you would have in a healthy environment. Which helps you to understand that your childhood environment was adverse and you were dealing with things children shouldn’t have responsibility for.

It has helped me to understand myself and the reasons for my past behaviour.

I’m not a prisoner of my thoughts and feelings anymore. I feel like I’ve done the biggest jail break ever.

Thank you”
