After someone suffers a traumatic event, often they find it difficult to bounce back and return to their usual way of living. Someone who has been exposed to trauma is affected both emotionally and mentally, making it highly challenging for them to pursue their goals and dreams.
Myra Fordham is the founder of Myra Fordham Coaching and Australia's #1 Trauma coach for women and a domestic abuse survivor. She is an Amazon International Best Selling Author in the category of sexual, domestic abuse. Her book is titled "Hear Her Roar: Successful Women Who Experienced Domestic Abuse."
Throughout her healing process, which helped her overcome suicide, anxiety, and depression, she realized that she needed to go through the process so she could go on to reach her higher purpose
Back in 2016, Myra suffered a severe brain injury resulting from domestic abuse by her boyfriend at the time. She was placed in an induced coma for 11 days and underwent brain surgery. Learning to walk and talk again was a truly life-changing experience for Myra, as it led her to heal her past trauma and deep pain.
Myra shares, "I was on my deathbed and had brain surgery. I learned how to walk and talk again, and I had to be pushed around in a wheelchair. I felt like a baby and felt completely broken. I had to heal my genealogical trauma and unlearn my toxic behavioral traits."
Throughout her healing process, which helped her overcome suicide, anxiety, and depression, she realized that she needed to go through the process so she could go on to reach her higher purpose, and shares, "I learned that I didn't have to be a victim of my past. I also learned that I didn't have to stay in an abusive, toxic, unhealthy relationship and that I had to invest into myself to heal, expand and grow financially."
Rising above her devastating experience, Myra Fordham now commits to helping women overcome anxiety, allowing them to break down people-pleasing patterns that have them attract unhealthy partners into their lives. She also helps women rekindle the flames and chemistry in their current relationship.
One of Myra's clients says, "I am no longer struggling with my past traumas that contributed to my mental health struggles. I have truly experienced a breakthrough in my thought patterns that kept me from moving forward. I have such a positive mindset now that I believe in myself and know that I can achieve my goals."
Although past trauma can be crippling, it is always up to us as an individual to understand that the past doesn't define who we are in the present. The road may not be easy, but it is not impossible to overcome, to reach true happiness. The key is to own what has happened to you before it owns you and find somebody competent to help you - someone who has the life experience to help you with your challenges and has solved their problems.
