If I never started CPT, I don’t know if I would have gotten to a point in my life where my trauma didn’t consume me. Now I have the skills it takes to sit through it, manage it, and move on from it.
I have never addressed my trauma before. I was either too scared or told it wasn’t the right time, or both. I’ve been in and out of treatment for my eating disorder and kept relapsing. I continued to be told that I was too unstable in my eating disorder to begin the trauma work, but I know my trauma is at the root of all my issues
I 10 out of 10 recommend CPT.
I have been able to witness miraculous shifts in the way that clients navigate their lives because of CPT.
Clients don’t always want to get better from their eating disorder, but they usually want to feel relief in regards to their PTSD symptoms. CPT motivates them to work harder in therapy.
One client realized it was not about feeling skinny, it was about feeling empty.
