Learn to notice dysregulation SOONER and stay regulated MORE of the time

Dysregulation is at the core of many of the worst symptoms of Childhood PTSD -- the brain fog, the emotional roller coaster, anxiety and depression, and chronic health problems from obesity to cancer to autoimmune disorders. It robs us of our accomplishments, damages relationships and drains us of joy. But healing is possible! It begins when you can catch dysregulation when it happens, and re-regulate as quickly as possible. It's a skill you can learn. When you can stay regulated, you're on more of a level playing field with people who had a normal childhood. Your symptoms get lighter, and you enjoy mental clarity, more balanced emotions, and you have more capacity to heal inside, solve old problems, and build the kind of life you want.

What others are saying...

"I immediately felt understood..."

“Yes! The course put words to feelings I had always had trouble explaining, or even allowing myself to feel. Even with a ton of self-work under my belt, this course reached something I hadn't been able to access before and I immediately felt understood. The daily exercise literally, I mean literally, changed my life. Within two weeks of consistent practice I was sleeping better, feeling more positive and being substantially more present in my life. I've gotten enough energy back to start a course I've been putting off for two years. Its simple, easily laid out, easy to connect with and even if you only complete half the course you'll get something out of it.”

"My people-savvy has skyrocketed"

"My people-savvy has skyrocketed. I can tell who’s an actual a**hole and who is a kind friend giving me tough-love or a coworker giving feedback instead of reacting unthinkingly or withdrawing defensively. Thanks so much Anna, for your plain-speaking, your understanding and your sharing! I’ve got more out of your ‘layperson’ course and your personal insight and lived experience than I ever got from anyone ‘formally-trained."

"Real tools to manage the symptoms of PTSD"

"Learning I had childhood PTSD years ago was such a relief and explained so many things, but there didn't seem to be anything I could do about the symptoms. Just knowing why I had what I called "daymares" made them a lot less disturbing, but it didn't help me get better. Anna's videos are so warm and comforting and offer real tools to manage the symptoms of PTSD. I'm grateful for the work she has done."

"Gives me a sense of comfort"

"This course shows a method to cope with childhood PTSD that isn't complicated and doesn't require expert help. I felt better for incorporating the practices it recommends into my everyday life, and it gives me a sense of comfort that whenever I'm feeling dysregulated, there is something that I can proactively do to calm myself."

"This course has been such a blessing for me

"I thoroughly recommend this course. Anna combines a warm and engaging presentational style with a sound professional grasp of the problems of emotional dysregulation. Her videos explain each topic clearly, while the downloadable worksheets are really helpful and easy to use. The subjects covered on the course not only help to understand what's causing our problems/symptoms but provide real techniques that can be easily integrated into a daily routine -- techniques that have been based on credible psychological research. I live in the UK where there is a long waiting list for any kind of therapy or treatment for people with 'mental health'/stress issues. This course has been such a blessing for me THANK YOU Anna!!"
