What Issues Can CPtsd Coaching Help With? 

Each person’s journey and challenges are unique, so there is no set list of what trauma coaching can and can’t help with. As a guide, complex trauma coaching with Linda is often used to help individuals:
  • Use Neuroscience to aid in reconnecting the disconnected brain
  • Build Healthy Relationships
  • Learn to Regulate Emotions
  • Identify Core Values
  • Develop a Sense of Self
  • Set Healthy Boundaries
  • Build Confidence and Self-Esteem
  • Set and Achieve Goals
  • Manage Unhealthy Habits
  • Move Through Change
  • Build a More Fulfilling Life
  • Identify Opportunities for Growth
  • Equip individuals with psychoeducation for cptsd for ongoing recovery needs
  • Repair Attachment/Abandonment wounds 

While coaching can result in improvements in symptoms from mental health conditions, like depression and anxiety—coaching is not mental health treatment. Clients cannot be in active suicidal ideation and must have a foundation of safety before coaching can begin.You can read about the differences between trauma coaching and therapy here.

Am I Ready for Complex Trauma Coaching? 

You may be ready for Complex Trauma Recovery Coaching if you have or are willing to learn the following …
  • Tolerance for discomfort – Are you proactive in embracing new ways of perceiving and acting? Are you able to endure periods of discomfort to realise the rewards of taking new and different approaches?
  • Flexibility to experimentation – Trying something new means taking risks, and experiments with new behaviours may not work the first time. Are you willing to try out new ideas and actions, fail, learn, and try again? We don't believe in a one size fits all approach to cptsd recovery.
  • Ability to look beyond the rational – Behaviour is not rational — it’s driven by emotions like fear, anger, and pride. Are you ready to gain a deeper understanding of your own behaviours and relationships by exploring their emotional dimensions?
  • Willingness to take responsibility – It’s hard to change if you don’t believe you have the power to shape your future. Blaming the organization, the boss, too many responsibilities, and so on will block you from growth. Are you ready to hold yourself accountable for making progress?
  • Capacity for Letting go – The willingness to be willing to be willing to make peace with the past and channel your energy into progress is essential to move forward into the life we choose to create.
  • Ability to ask for support – You are accountable for change, but you will develop faster when you connect with other people. Are you ready to begin thinking about developing a new support network around you? 
  • Self-discipline – Learning how to discipline yourself to say no and to focus on what’s important are essential parts of becoming healthy. Even if those around you are upset at you no longer being available 24/7. Are you ready to remain focused on your recovery goals?

The 8 Pillars of Trauma Recovery Coaching

1. Consent 

 You are in the driver's seat, and we will not explore anything before you are ready. I may gently nudge you outside your comfort zone, but I will always respect your decision to proceed or pull back. ​ 

 2. Curiosity 

 Developing our ability to be curious is one of the most important ingredients in healing. Being mindfully curious about what’s going on in your inner world allows you to develop a deeper understanding of who you are and where you want to be in your recovery journey.​ 

 3. Participation 

 Complex Trauma Recovery Coaching is not something I can do for you. It is something we both must be fully engaged in, and I will encourage you to be an active participant in your own healing. While I am there to support you all the way, ultimately you must take the steps forward.​ 

 4. Present-focused 

 Complex Trauma is a living legacy. Everything you need to heal is accessible in the present moment. Yes, stories from your past will inevitably come up. The most important component is how those stories are impacting you today. We will be working with the here-and-now to help your brain and body release unconscious, stored memories from your life.​ 

5. Neuro-Psychoeducation 

 I will share the neuro/psycho/bio/spiritual evidence based information with you. This can help you gain a better understanding of what the brain is driving, why you are experiencing certain things, and help you feel less alone whilst taking charge of your effective recovery. ​ 

6. Respect 

 Even your most destructive coping strategies were adopted for a good reason. While they may be outdated now, we still treat them with respect, because at one time they saved you from mental/emotional/physical/psychological pain. Understanding why you developed these coping strategies and how they served you in the past can help you release them in the present. ​ 

7. Transparency

 I am always transparent about my process, and honest with you. If you want to know about my life, I am an open book. If you ask me for honest, direct feedback, I will provide it. 

8. Emotional Safety 

 Emotional safety is the core foundational need of Complex Trauma Recovery. Without it, your brain stops you from having an effective recovery. We will always ensure you are emotionally safe and that you can speak up for what will and won’t work for you. 

Curious About What Happens In A Coaching Session?

Frequently asked questions

What is a Trauma Recovery Coach?

A Trauma Recovery Coach is an individual qualified to educate, encourage, challenge and motivate you to achieve your recovery goals. A Trauma Recovery Coach is an active listener who works closely with you to facilitate recognising the strategies & structure you require to move yourself towards your goals. We celebrate your successes, help you discover how to overcome challenges, identify your strengths and weaknesses, and assist you to move forward at a quicker pace than you can achieve on your own.

What is your Complex Trauma approach?

As a Complex Trauma Professional, I’m focused on:
• Ensuring you feel seen, heard and validated.
• Creating safety, so you can be your authentic self.
• Holding a non-judgmental space, free of shame or blame.
• Centering your process and needs. (I don't carry an agenda as to how you ”should” be healing or growing) Having walked the recovery road myself I'm aware of how flexible we need to be.
Research shows when there is a good match between coach and client, sustainable and meaningful change can occur.
Generally, my work with clients tends to be longer-term as we work to identify and understand the impact of developmental trauma, belief systems and patterns of relating that may have become part of your daily life as an adult. 
The recovery journey is like any journey of transformation: At times, it’s painful, there are many challenges as we look into the face of adversity, and it’s beautiful, awe inspiring, nurturing and joyful.
As part of a good working relationship, I speak openly about the fact that ruptures or moments where I ‘get it wrong’ or misunderstand you are likely to happen. Conflict, ruptures, and mistakes are a normal part of what it means to be human. They’re also bound to happen in the coaching process and it's a vital part of the process as you begin to learn how to engage, to speak up, for what is right for you. This didn't happen when we were growing up and it's necessary it happens in a truly safe space now.
These moments also give us an opportunity to understand how we react and respond in relationships and learn how to work through the challenges so the changes you experience in coaching can transfer into your daily life. This process also ensures you can experience profound catalysts for transformational healing and growth.

Do you accept insurance?

Trauma recovery coaching is not covered by any insurance at this time. Check with your provider if they accept life coaching and you might be able to claim with them. A reciept is issued at the time of  booking and paying. At this time we don't issue paperwork that American providers often ask for, we are not equipped to do so. Other country's for example some insurance companies outside of America are accepting coaching receipts. Linda is based in Brisbane, Australia and sees clients globally.

Do you accept Mental Health Care Plans (MHCP’s)?

Unfortunately, psychotherapists, coaches and counsellors are not eligible for Medicare rebates, so we don’t take Mental Health Care Plans from your GP. You don’t need a GP referral and can access trauma recovery coaching simply by booking your session online via the booking link.

How long are the coaching sessions?

Sessions take approximately 50 minutes. These sessions can be weekly or fortnightly and are set according to the speed you can integrate taking actions in your daily life to achieve your goals.

How many coaching sessions will I need?

This depends on what you want to achieve with your recovery. Most clients come with a specific goal in mind. For some clients this may take as little as 4 sessions. While for clients aiming at full recovery or to work on a broader range of issues, more sessions are often required. The bonus is the flexibility that comes with choosing coaching. You can come and go as suits your personal requirements. There is not a formal ending like psychotherapy, you're welcome at all times.

 Do all coaches need professional supervision? 

Many certification/registration agencies for coaches and counsellors require practitioners to undertake a minimum number of hours of professional supervision each year. Even if you’re not mandated to undertake supervision, it still comes with a range of benefits. High-quality professional supervision can help you look after your own mental health, improve your practice, become aware of blind spots or biases, and explore opportunities for professional growth.

Is there a minimum commitment for supervision and business coaching?

No. You can book a single session or arrange appointments on a regular schedule (e.g., weekly, fortnightly, monthly).

Where does supervision and coaching take place?

All coaching takes place online via Zoom. This has proven to be the most convenient way for individuals to fit coaching and supervision into their busy lives. You will need a quiet room with no distractions where you can focus completely on our conversation. 

Do you offer tele-health or telephone counselling?

Yes I do! I offer secure sessions online via zoom and your camera must be on. I don't offer telephone counselling.

Can I work with a therapist and a coach at the same time?

Yes. Many people work with more than one therapist and/or coach simultaneously and the results are highly effective. Read about the differences between trauma coaching and therapy here.

How much does it cost?

Coaching and supervision costs about the same amount of money as seeing any health professional. Often the price is the same amount as your copay for other health professionals. For more information on packages and prices click here.

How long does recovery take?

Individual recovery journeys need to take into account many different factors, like the stage of recovery you are at today, how the events in your life impacted you, the work you’ve done up until now and more. There is no fixed time frame due to your individual needs. Linda's clients assess every 4 weeks what their individual needs are going to be for the next 4 weeks. 

Does coaching involve talking about my past again?

We Do Not go back over the past in any depth. Doing so is counterproductive with Complex Trauma Recovery and has the potential to re-traumatise you. You are already reliving the trauma every day in your body, being driven by the brain, therefore, you do not need to revisit the trauma repeatedly. We instead look at how the trauma is impacting your day, here and now.

What issues or challenges do you not work with?

I do not work with:
• Court-Mandated Therapy
• Crisis Response/24-Hour Services; and
• People who actively have suicidal and homicidal intents and plans.

I also would not be a good fit if you need a higher level of care such as a:
• A partial Hospitalization Program: A therapeutic program with a level of care that’s set at a minimum of five hours a day, five days a week for a duration of two weeks to a whole month.
• An Intensive Outpatient Program: A therapeutic program with a level of care set at a minimum of three hours a day, three days a week for a duration of up to two months.

Both of these types of treatments are for individuals who need to see a clinician and medical provider more than once a week for their mental health, physical health, and substance use issues (e.g., addiction, eating disorders, suicidal ideation, self-harm) and find these issues severely impact their ability to function on a day-to-day basis such that work needs to be put on hold for a period of time.

Can I contact you after hours?

I am unavailable after opening hours and Linda Meredith CPtsd Coaching is not an emergency service. If you require immediate support, contact the emergency services of your country immediately:
Australia - 
• Police, Fire or Ambulance - 000
