EP 0094 - Anxiety and Trauma Responses Are Normal! - w/Monique Koven

Play
Read more

For full notes on this episode, go to https://theanxioustruth.com/94

Too often, the responses that result from anxiety disorders and/or traumatic experiences are classified as mental illness.  We talk about anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder.  That word - "disorder" - leads many people to believe that they are broken, damaged, abnormal, or ill. The word "disease" is thrown around, leading to additional despair and distress.

It's important to understand that the sensations, thoughts, and feelings you are experiencing, are a NORMAL part of being human!  These are learned responses resulting from your past experiences.  Feeling afraid or anxious is normal and to be expected.  Why then, do we call these illnesses and disorders?  Fear-based responses to anxiety and trauma may be driving your life in directions you do not like.  Recognizing these responses as simply learned responses can help provide the confidence you need to start to make changes.

The Hope in Healing from CPTSD, with Monique Koven

Play
Read more

So what does that hope actually look like, what does it feel like? Well, I'm glad you asked because our guest on this episode of the podcast is Monique Koven, Trauma-Informed Recovery & Resilience Coach.

I have worked for over 25 years as a social worker where I worked with older adults, many of whom were Holocaust survivors. As a survivor of ongoing, repetitive childhood trauma, I know what it's like to believe that things will never change. I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and chronic PTSD. I was always trying to find the right therapy to provide some relief and finally "fix" me. Over the years, I tried well over 15 therapeutic modalities, but nothing ever helped. I lived with chronic anxiety, fear, and distressing daily PTSD symptoms such as flashbacks, disassociation, and triggering. Waking up with feelings of dread at the thought of a new day and then living it in constant anxiety. Every. Single. Day. I was told that trauma and anxiety were going to be with me for the long haul and that I would have to learn coping strategies to manage my symptoms. I believed it. Until... everything changed.

I have found complete freedom and am living my life fully without anything holding me back. I drive wherever I want, I take risks and step into things I never dreamed possible, and I feel at ease in my own body and mind. No more waking up in dread at the thought of another day. And the best part was that I didn’t need any tools or techniques.

I can help you step back into your innate power and peace of mind. There is hope. Change is possible.

During our chat with Monique, we talk about:

  • Monique shares some of her past and the struggles she felt growing up in an abusive home.
    • How she managed to try and feel safe in an environment full of chaos and violence.
  • As she grew up, the challenges of seemingly having a perfect life but feeling pulled back into her past.
  • Is it actually possible to fully heal from CPTSD and PTSD; and if so, what does that look like?
  • Finding balance during your healing and what it means to go to both ends of the spectrum during healing work.
  • Why is it important to have someone witness and validate your story.

EP 0069 Anxiety Help - You Are NOT Responsible For The Happiness of Others (with Monique Koven)

Play
Read more

Do you worry that your anxiety problems are going to “ruin everything” for your friends and family? Being worried about letting people down or ruining things can seriously stand in the way of taking the steps you need to take to build a better life. I’ve found this to be a common theme among anxiety sufferers, so lets talk about how the happiness of others is NOT your responsibility. You are not responsible for making people happy or sad, and you are not responsible for the positive or negative outcome of every social event, family function or other situation that involves other people in your life. In this episode Monique Koven and I discuss the origins of this distortion, how it can be an impediment to progress, and what we can do about it. Thanks to Monique for joining the discussion today!
