Trauma changes lives.

Trauma has a significant impact on a survivors emotional and physical health. Many develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which changes the way they relate to themselves and the world around them. Other survivors also battle depression, anxiety and insomnia. They are at significant risk of developing addictions to drugs, alcohol and food, as this helps them numb the pain of their trauma. Most survivors cannot recover on their own. They need help to recover from these after effects. And yet there is a significant lack of trauma informed mental help professionals around the globe. The International Association of Trauma Recovery Coaching exists to change that by certifying coaches and educating all other professionals about how to provide trauma informed care to their clients.

Abuse is a relational trauma. Therefore, healing can only occur within the context of safe, healthy relationships. Our coaches are trained to provide that healing relationship.

Trauma recovery coaching has a purpose, goals, and protocols designed by Bobbi Parish, a pioneer of Trauma Recovery Coaching.

The most damaging aftereffect of trauma is disconnection - from ourselves, from others and from the truth about ourselves, the world and our place in it. We abandon ourselves, letting our shame and pain push us into isolating away from our community. The primary tool I teach our Certified Trauma Recovery Coaches is how to help their clients reconnect — to themselves, to others and to the community around them.
