Common exposure to stress and shock means we literally get stuck in a high alert state of flight, fight, freeze or Fawn
Typically my patients will tell me they have spent years, feeling powerless, helpless, not validated, victimised, codependent. Scapegoated, Ostrecised. Have allowed themselves to be violated in some way with no boundaries of self care or self love and have developed unheathly coping strategies of disassociating, avoiding, suppressing and repressing emotions.
Call me now on 07984011429 for a complementary, 10-minute assessment chat to find out more. From there, if you decide to proceed, the next step is to complete an in-depth questionnaire online. This captures your life story in a potted version. It also asks you to identify aspects of your personality that may be fueling or feeding your stress Illness.
Learn to see your pain in a different way. Your body thinks it’s doing you a favour by distracting your mind away from what’s really even more ‘painful’ emotionally to experience
Evidence shows that if you suffered Adverse Childhood Experiences or a high ACE score as it is known, you are more likely to develop chronic pain and other long term health conditions decades later in your adult years.

We all have a story. Events, situations and trauma can happen to us throughout our lives and some of that which we experience can leave a long-term scar, not just consciously but subconsciously. In a metaphoric way, sometimes our body tries to heal and ‘scabs’ over but we keep picking at it mentally.
95% of our thoughts, feelings and behaviour are subconscious, we are not aware of them, so what we are experiencing, feeling and thinking is just the tip of the iceberg.
Typically people with TMS or Mind / Body Syndrome have been through things in their live that they found unsettling. Feelings such as anger, hurt, grievances, frustrations, deep sadness, fear and anxiety over time, if not let go, play havoc with our emotional, mental and physical well being. This causes an awful lot of Complex Post Traumatic Stress in our bodies. Our instinctive fight, fight, flee response kicks in to try to protect us as it would have in the days when we were trying to save ourselves from being attacked by a lion. In modern times the metaphoric lion may now be our boss, our partner or a particularly overwhelming scenario.
Simply put our mind and body are connected
There is also the current day to day stress that we generate, this can be a build up of minor scenarios or a sudden event that we are confronted with related to our:
Relationships Past and Present
Narcissistic Family Abuse
Generated Life Traumas
and of course small everyday challenges in today’s fast paced world that
build up inside of us.
It is said that it is not what happens to us in life but how we process those events that cause the problem. Our unique personality makes us who we are. Typically people suffering from TMS, or Mind body Disorders have what is known as a Type A Personality who internalize their thoughts and feelings have high standards for themselves and of others and can put a great deal of pressure on themselves to be perfect.
Below are some of these personality traits that I see in my patients time after time.
Being critical of yourself
Worrying about what others think
Being a worrier
Being a perfectionist or having high expectations of yourself or others
Having low self esteem
Feeling overly dependent on others
Feeling overly responsible or overwhelmed with responsibility
Tending to hold thoughts and feelings in (Internalizing)
Having difficulty making decisions
Having difficulty letting thi
Not standing up for yourself or expressing yourself for fear of consequences
What this means in simplified terms is that our suppressed and repressed emotions cause inner tension or TMS
Your pain is real, but it’s coming from your emotional content as opposed to a physical cause.
