Personal | Vision | Statement 

At the beginning of my study for my counselling qualifications I was encouraged to do a personal vision statement. This vision statement was written long before I heard the words Complex Ptsd or Childhood Developmental Trauma. However, as you can see today, they have stood the test of time because I learnt to base my decisions on my core values and my personal vision statement. 

"I choose to walk each day with integrity, service, respect, excellence and compassion. I remain focused on my life’s purpose and pursue opportunities for education with personal and professional growth in order to write, teach and develop quality products and services for a Global audience seeking practical solutions to Complex Trauma. The intergenerational silence has to cease."

You can begin yours today by taking it slowly and following the ideas on this page 5 Examples of a Personal Vision Statement.

My Goals for Generational Change

The Silence Has to Cease.
The silence in families where we don’t communicate beyond the surface, the external of our lives, has to be broken.
We need to be the generation who consciously choose to break free of the unconscious trauma handed down for many generations. It’s an Intentional Choice.
We are the first generation with the language and science to begin to break free. Our intentional choices will need to include recognising the non-verbal rules in our families. To own we are only valued and included if we keep silent about the unhealthy family dynamics and how we are treated.
We, the brave, begin this process in our family systems to ensure the children and the children’s children have good health, greater personal autonomy, careers they enjoy and personal relationships that build into their lives as they also build into the lives of others.
We are making a conscious decision to stop handing on the toxic stress.
Without action now, we will see an ongoing mental health crisis worldwide – for many generations to come.
I invite you to join me on the mission to create lasting change, by breaking the harmful patterns of intergenerational trauma

Why ACTO and not ICF?

International Association of Trauma Recovery Coaches
The ICF is a coaching organization that upholds a set of core competencies, competencies which set a clear path for how accredited programs teach coaches. They are not designed to support any type of coaching that varies from their model and competencies. In that way, their focus is on ensuring conformation to their methods rather than a coaching program's effectiveness or impact because they believe their way forward is the best way.

If we were to conform to the ICF's methods and competencies we would be limited in our capacity to help trauma survivors. Doing so would essentially gut our program of it's most effective and beneficial components. For this reason we have neither sought, nor will seek, ICF accreditation.

The International Association of Trauma Recovery Coaching does not conform to the ICF's model of coaching. We are not coaches who work with trauma survivors. We are trauma professionals who use the modality to coach to help trauma survivors build a life they love to live.
