Relationships

Beyond Talk Therapy™ can help you clear up troubles in relationships with your partner, your boss, coworkers, parents, children and – your relationship with yourself.

It’s very human to get into relationships that seem to replay an old pattern over and over.

Often this is caused by early relationships and events that were traumatizing. How do you know if you were traumatized?

  1.  You still have a strong emotional charge attached to a memory.
  2.  You have an ailment you can’t seem to get rid of.
  3.  You feel powerless, helpless or out of control.
  4.  You feel like a fraud.
  • There is a much bigger trap that most people don’t know anything about. It comes from the fact that so many people are born of accidental pregnancies –  unwanted, neglected children who never get their most basic needs met or are abused in some way. That’s a huge percentage of the world’s population.
  • So let’s talk about:

Recovery from Narcissistic Wounding

First, most people – even many therapists – have little understanding of the devastation caused by narcissistic parents. The damage done by a narcissistic (neglectful, self-absorbed, or abusive) parent is deep and has far-reaching consequences, including passing on the damage to the next generation. Narcissistic wounding is one of the relationship traps that causes people to repeat the same pattern in relationships over and over.

Dr. Drewry has studied this topic in depth and offers clients new insights into old problems that keep resurfacing in their lives.

If you have some of these feelings you can heal the damage that keeps you stuck:

  • Failure to succeed in life
  • Feeling like a fraud
  • Feeling helpless and hopeless to change your situation
  • Having serial relationships with no real permanence
  • Choosing people who treat you like an abusive parent did

This is known as a re-enactment of trauma.

There is a reason for re-enacting that trauma and it can be cleared.

In addition to sessions, clients will find here a reading resource list which is hugely helpful for making a complete recovery from growing up with a self-absorbed parent.

KarenA testimonial for Narcissistic Wound Recovery:

“After our first session I had the best night’s sleep that I have had in years! I still woke up a few times during the night or a while, but I was able to fall back asleep quickly and DEEPLY.

My life used to feel like a fractured bowl that I was struggling to hold together – now it is being glued back together!

I was able to reframe my disappointing relationships with men in my life, and no longer carry the heavy burden of anger and resentment.”

“A subconscious message was running my life…”
I had been feeling frustrated and confused about what was holding me back in achieving certain goals in my work and personal life. I KNOW I am good at what I do, but, even after a lot of traditional therapy and other personal work over the years I hadn’t been able to deeply understand or access the beliefs, thoughts and feelings that were contributing to my confusion and frustration.

As it turns out the reason was the narcissistic wounding that happened to me via my mother as I was growing up. The main message that was stopping me was that I “couldn’t and shouldn’t go for what I want”.

I feel that after only two sessions with Dr. Drewry I already am making progress. I’m feeling lighter, more focused and more willing to feel my feelings as they show up. And significantly, I’m more willing and able to move forward and do the work to heal that deep, narcissistic wound – that will help me achieve my personal and professional goals.

I can easily and wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Drewry. She is not only highly skilled In both traditional and non-traditional approaches, but is also highly intuitive. This combination is powerful in getting to the root issues quickly and easily.”    Colette B. M.S.
