2nd Video on emotional flashbacks

Hello fellow bloggers & friends,

I hope you had a good weekend and have started your week with hope in your heart. I have been unusually busy over the last week, as hubby has been on holiday from work. My mornings have been completely transformed from work & ‘me’ time, to long breakfasts and lots of ‘us’ time. We just celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary on Saturday and took a mini break away in the wonderful town of Braunschweig. An escape from the usual routine we are well accustomed to, is so incredibly refreshing and enriching.

Although hubby is still on holiday this week as well, I want to make sure I keep up my blogging and Youtube Videos, even if at a lesser frequency.

I have finally managed to set up my new webcam and got the sound on the microphone to the level it should be at. I can safely say that the quality of my Youtube videos will finally be at an acceptable level.Hoorah 🙂

Although I started off my video today thinking it would only be a very short trial one (to test out my new webcam), it ended up being a long one!

The video is about emotional flashbacks once again and how to manage them.

The video below is the 2nd one I have posted on this topic, as I have received a few more requests to talk more about this difficult area of CPTSD.

Love Athina ♥

Ps: I finally received my full & approved ‘Certificate in Coaching’ today after completing the written assignment and waiting a long 12 weeks for the course tutors to correct it.

Unfortunately, they forgot to add my married name in brackets as I had originally requested but despite this, I am very very pleased 🙂

Courage is..

Today, I am dedicating this blog post to my dear friend and incredibly inspiring fellow blogger Imany!


She is one of the bravest people I have met through this wonderful blogging community, who has suffered the worst type of abuse (SRA) by her own parents and yet still has the courage and love to spread her inner warrior vibes to the rest of the blogging community.

When I read her posts, I feel like a happy bouncy pea..Just like the one below 🙂

She is bubbly, chatty, funny, genuine, encouraging, caring & extremely talented in her blog writing.

Despite her incredibly unfair childhood, I am pretty sure she was put on this earth to do amazing things..and she already is..Spreading love, encouragement, positivity and suicide awareness with this hashtag # go fix ..

I am sending her hap-pea vibes, as I know she will soon be ‘Hap-pea’ again!giphypeaand just to be sure…Imani…I am sending you many, many cyber hugs to help you feel a little better! You are loved ❤


Love Athina ♥

The stages of healing-Victim, Survivor, Thriver

For those of you healing from child abuse (narcissistic abuse), this video includes the differences between each healing stage, as listed by Barbara Harris & Charles Whitfield. I found this very useful in my own healing. I am luckily mostly thriving now, with the exception of a few hiccups, here and there. Where do you see yourself on your journey of recovery?

If you find this video useful in any way, then please share on social media ♥

Love Athina ♥
