Every session is based on the core elements of Linda’s coaching principles designed to help you achieve all you want in life, both personally and professionally.
A Complex Trauma Recovery Coach is an individual qualified to educate, encourage, challenge and motivate you to achieve your recovery goals. A Complex Trauma 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 quicker pace than you can achieve on your own.
During each session we recap on the actions set and achieved from the last session and cover any questions you may have. We then set a ‘session goal’ to clearly achieve your desired outcome. Together we explore what you may have tried, what has worked and identify obstacles to overcome. Next I provide you with insight and psychoeducation plus possible options for strategies and structure to achieve your goal. At the end of the session we agree on your goals for the week and I provide you with any necessary education and worksheets you may need throughout your week.
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.
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 and for clients aiming at full recovery more sessions are involved according to their personal stage of recovery.
In the majority of cases Coaching takes place online via either the Zoom App or FB Messenger App. This has proven to be the most convenient way for individuals to fit Coaching into their busy lives. You will need a quiet room with no distractions where you can focus completely on our conversation. Face to face coaching is available for those in Brisbane, Australia.
Coaching costs about the same amount of money as seeing any health professional. For more information on packages and prices click here.
Yes, and you can also include your therapy and coaching with other practitioners also. I have a number of clients who work with their therapist and with me, and the results are highly effective.
The answer lies in are you determined to become alive and unpack your authentic self? Most of my clients find me when they’ve tried everything else and it hasn’t worked. More often than not clients have spent many years in therapy and are fed up with minimal to no progress. Others have spent years in recovery believing that’s all that life will hold for them. Together we make great inroads back to a healthy life in a short time frame.
I can’t be specific here as Complex Ptsd is an individual journey needing to take into account many different factors, for example, 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. The longest a client worked with me was 7 months and by then they were ready to return to work after having been unable to work due to a breakdown.
We Do Not go back over the past in any depth. Doing so is counterproductive with Complex Ptsd and has the potential to retraumatise you. You are already reliving the trauma every day in your body, therefore, you do not need to revisit any trauma.

Not at this stage. I will be doing group therapy in the near future.
