Welcome to Our Global FB Family
Welcome to a FB Group with a difference. Inside group you will find a community packed with encouragement, support, units full of Complex Ptsd information, people who genuinely care and encourage you AND we do weekends with a difference.
Our wonderful Admin Team are like you, in active recovery from Complex Ptsd. We decided to do weekends differently so we can best maintain the foundation of emotional safety present in the group for over 5 years. You won’t find another fb group like us.
Currently the admin team puts post approval on for the entire group from Saturday 1pm, Brisbane, Australia time to 1pm Monday, Brisbane, Australia time as these are our slowest times of the week. You can convert this to your time here – https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html
Am I Ready for the Facebook Group?
If you’re headed into the FB group this is how the Stages relate to the Emotional Safety foundation: Three Stages of Recovery in Relation to Group – the Stages of Recovery are definitely there to outline that Stage 1 needs to be established i.e we are not equipped to be a crisis group. Individuals must have achieved a stage of safety and security in their life and be able to self manage their triggers. This is due to our Emotional Safety foundation, which in itself requires a level of recovery for individuals to be able to understand this is a group and we impact each other.
You belong if you wish to be part of a proactive group who support each others vast and diverse recovery journey’s and are choosing to be proactive despite how damn hard it is just one day at a time. We do the work until we find the 1 thing that works for us individually. Meanwhile we keep taking one next step. If group isn’t for you at this time, that’s okay too. I’m very open about this group is definitely not for everybody who enters it. The choice is always yours.

Complex Ptsd & Recognising the Abandonment Wound
Self-abandonment cycle refers to a pattern of behavior where individuals neglect their own needs, emotions, and values in order to please others or to conform to societal expectations. This cycle can lead to feelings of low self-worth, depression, and anxiety.
8 Signs of Abandonment Depression
I never believed that I have depression in the normal sense of what’s regarded as depression. I’m not somebody who’s walked around going, oh I’m depressed and I really feel it in my body. For me in the beginning the depression just used to knock me out. I’d be getting ready to go and exercise and I’d wake up with one gym shoe and suck on and go, what happened? There’s videos of all the things that I’ve done along the way to get to where I am today.
The 5 domains of Post Traumatic Growth
It’s normal with complex trauma recovery for us to query what is my one next step? We often are aware of symptoms we’re experiencing and can be missing the language we need to move forward.
