Hi, I’m Adriana, the creator of this course!
After a 4-year ordeal with chronic pain including TMJ Dysfunction, migraines, tension headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, ulcers, vertigo, trigeminal neuralgia (so painful it's nicknamed the suicide disease), among my many symptoms, I reached a breaking point. I couldn't understand how I could be in so much pain at such a young age, and couldn't fathom what my future would look like if I was already in this much pain by just the ripe old age of 30 going on 90.
One day, I stumbled upon the mindbody connection. Chronic physical pain is a result of repressed emotions from childhood trauma, and releasing these emotions would make the pain go away. I thought it was ridiculous at first, but I was so desperate for pain relief that I was willing to try anything, after all I tried everything else, from meds, physiotherapy and trigger point injections to pseudoscience, and herbal medicine I tried it all, and nothing seemed to be working.
I did the emotional work, and it worked! I no longer suffer from chronic pain anymore after I learned how to do the work. This inspired me to become a certified life coach and help as many people as possible heal from their pain too.
My own trauma of emotional abuse and narcissistic abuse in my childhood into adulthood, spurred a calling within me to help others do the same. I have truly been there with narcissistic abuse, with a narcissistic primary caregiver, narcissistic partners and friends, and even toxic workplaces. I couldn't believe how many people went through similar things I did in my childhood, which is why I pursued a career in transformational life coaching and created this course.
I’ve been to the depths of my own pain and darkness, and while I was there, I definitely would’ve LOVED to have had a guide standing alongside me, helping guide me on how to recover from narcissistic abuse, but there just wasn’t anything out there that provided the kind of intimate space-holding that my mind and body truly needed after withstanding decades of narcissistic behaviour. This further inspired my decision to help as many people as possible to also heal.
I hope this course serves you in the highest and best way, and that you experience relief from your symptoms from doing this deep inner work. This course is a guide on how I did my healing work, with various exercises, lectures, and resources so you can build your own toolkit to navigate the emotions that you will experience throughout your life.
