Trauma Release Ipswich

Trauma is something most of us experience in life, from the dripping tap that is almost unnoticeable, to the more severe. It is never pleasant, and we all have different ways of coping with it consciously and unconsciously. However there are varying degrees, and it can really help to work with an experienced trauma therapist when it is impacting your life.


Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a severe, acute type of trauma that occurs when a person perceives themselves to be in a life threatening situation, or sees something so horrific their mind cannot process it. Our minds try to though, because it has to process tall events to understand, release the emotional charge and then mentally file away. So nightmares and flashbacks can occur regularly until it is dealt with, accompanied by feelings of anger, shame, even guilt and a complete review of WHY????. War Veterans are well known to come back from their service of duty, with memories that are so bad, they are hard to handle. The same occurs with other service industry professionals such as ambulance staff and fire men/women.

It could be described as if on a normal day suddenly your view of the world changes profoundly, forever. And it's not just you it affects, it is everyone close to you too.

Sudden or severe events can also cause it, and some people find it Gard to seek help for a kong time time. Just talking or thinking about it can re-trigger intense flashbacks, so stage one of untreated recovery can often be an attempt to bury it.

Compounded Trauma

No less serious to the above, just different, compounded trauma occurs when one event happens one after another, not giving the person time to process or clear the first before another layer is added. Even the strongest of people can only tolerate so much before they can't get up on their own. It is at that point professional help is needed to regain a feeling of safety, stop the repeating cycle and rebuild from the difficult times they have experienced.

The Good News

Even the most serious trauma cases can be cleared. There are a lot of Vietnam War Veteran examples, working mostly with EFT (the Emotional Freedom Technique) who donated their time in return for intense trauma therapy and got better (videos available). After the treatment they could still see the events that took place, but the emotional charge no longer exists. Following deep healing a person can do something productive with the next stage of their lives. It does often take time, but compared to talking therapies, is relatively quick and once cleared, trauma release is highly effective. You can't box and bury things in life - not forever. But you can choose your timing and carefully research different methods, and practitioners when you are ready.

The Bad News

If you don't address any trauma based issue fully, you may find you at some point get re-triggered. A good example of this was during COVID, I noticed a few people who had experienced severe PTSD reverting back into an exaggerated heightened fear response after years of wellness Their intense fear of survival was being threatened again, leading to similar symptoms to the original event. I have also noticed clients can have old traumas reactivated many years later by something fairly minor.

Trauma Case Study

Many years after seeing a female client for domestic abuse related trauma, I received a call for a top-up. With her permission, the bones of the story were approved for this article. Something relatively minor occurred many years after a bad period in her life, and she experienced panic, anxiety and flashbacks to the events many years earlier. Thanks to her reaching out, it took one session to clear, but for a few days after the incident she was right back in the body response that had occurred 7 years previously.

How I can Help

I made a decision to focus primarily on business coaching, life path work and working with clients to improve or fine tune their lives. I felt I'd done my time with the really heavy cases 10 years ago now. But actually I was just burnt out from my other responsibilities and not fully healed this in myself. I changed my mind after this session. I had realised whilst I was on retreat in the States in 2019, whilst in deep shamanic meditation, that although I had had my fair share of trauma in my younger years, in the mid to late 2010-2020 period I understand it a much deeper level and so will be re-offering it to clients who need help with deep or complex trauma, PTSD, fears and phobias.

Understanding Trauma Takes More than a Text Book

There is a difference between training in something like this, gaining experience - getting results - and then also being able to understand the feelings at a bodily level. Though all different, there are also lots of similarities in how trauma clients feel nd it is much easier to tune in after having (personal) life experiences. It is not common in therapy to talk about your own experiences as a therapist. But 20 years down the track plus, I do realise there are some things you are better at helping people with, because you have bodily resonance that can't learn this in a Master's degree or book. And there is nothing better than seeing someone move through serious trauma and recreating their life.

I offer a free 40 minute Zoom call to discuss what you need, share what you want too and decide if I am the right match for you and vice versa. When you are ready, the process is deeply transformative, and although can be challenging, it is gentle and moves at the pace that is right for you. You will aways leave feeling clearer and safe and all sessions are completely confidential. I charge £150/ session which usually lasts 2 hours. I will only take on clients who are ready, committed and following the initial chat,

Fine Art Brings Happiness

A beautiful and moving image now graces my wall: layers of vibrant colour alternatively reveal and conceal forms of significance, depicted with emotion and artistry. The abstract quality is such that it is a timeless piece I will always value and enjoy.
Thankyou !

Feng Shui Consultation for New Home

Growing up in China, I have always interested in Fengshui. As we were moving to Ipswich, I googled Fengshui consultant locally and that is how I found Rachel. I am so glad that we connected through the email initially. The house move took 9 months, Rachel was so patient, and she offered me advice through the process. I was so excited to meet her the day after we moved in. It provided us with a lot of comfort and guidiance at the new home. With her consultation, we had a much better understanding of the new space. Rachel is very intuitive, she did the dowsing, cleared the geopathic stress by using 'acupuncture'. The ritual she carried out involved all family member, so it was rather special.  By using Fengshui principle and combined with our personal astrology, Rachel pointed out where the 'special corners' in our house, for example the wealth, relationship, friends and helpful people etc; She also helped us choose the interior colour, elemental accessories, positive symbolism in art works etc. I am so glad that I have found Rachel. It made us settle in and connect with our new home much quicker. The declutter has given us a much healthier space to live in. Whenever I feel disconnected with our home, I try to use some of the Fengshui she taught us to refresh and cleanse. I am so grateful that I contacted Rachel at the first place. 

Feng Shui Resolved Serious Mental Health Issue

I asked for Rachels help with a young family member. They were having mental health issues which involved refusing to attend school, withdrawing from friendship groups and showing signs of psychosis. Rachel discussed with me her findings regarding her birth date and time in relation to her specialised work. Together we put a plan in place as I was to help. I carried out her recommendations. She stated that this time would come to an end this Spring and they would be through the part of the chart that was causing the chaos. I am so excited to report that they were again attending school until the lockdown. She is fully interacting with her family and is again part of her friendship group. Due to the lockdown and her now being well she is catching up with the school work she missed and will be ready to start again when the time comes. She is now off all medication which included ADHD and antidepressant prescription drugs. I cannot thank Rachel enough. If you are on the fence regarding her work, don’t be, it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and those you care for.

Feng Shui Consultation Solved Tenant Crisis Ipswich

"Before I got in touch with Rachel, I was at a loss to know what to do. I had bought a flat to rent out in Ipswich, but it attracted the wrong types of tenants. The previous three tenants had either not paid their rent or had left the flat in a very bad state of repair, or both. In effect, I was just chucking money into a big black hole. I wanted to keep the flat, which I would eventually pass on to my son, but I still had the mortgage to pay. After reading about feng shui and the effect it can have, I was keen to find out more. I contacted Rachel and she explained what she intended to do and why. Admittedly, I was a bit sceptical at first, but I was keen to give it a go. Much to my amazement, after a six month rent void, that same week, a potential tenant turned up at the flat. The couple liked what they saw and moved in within two weeks. Much to my relief, they also paid the rent on time. I highly recommend Rachel to anyone in a similar situation."
