Help Me Love My Child

  • You are dealing with trauma memories. These might be incidents experienced in childhood that is beginning to surface.
  • You are understanding and trying to heal your attachment injuries. You discover that you experienced neglect, abandonment or lack of emotional connection with caregivers. You might struggle with anger, fear, anxiety, self-loathing and aggression. These are also signs of attachment issues. The help of a qualified therapist will help you begin to heal and move forward.
  • You are dealing with relationship difficulties. Sometimes women who experience abuse find it difficult to deal with the abuse and be available for emotional connection with their children. The needs of the abuser and the fight to keep the relationship going can overtake any other requirements.
  • You are dealing with life or health challenges. Many things can preoccupy the thoughts and take the attention and affections away from a connection. These can happen for a long time before the women identify that there’s a problem.
