014 The 4 Trauma Responses of Narcissistic Abuse
In this episode, I want to talk to you about the 4 trauma responses when we talk about narcissistic abuse. Many of you have heard about fight, flight and freeze, but there's also a fourth one that’s lesser known - fawn or appease. So let’s go through each of these four, and see if you can resonate with any of them.
013 Am I a Narcissist?
I get so many messages every day from people all over the world asking - Am I a Narcissist? The first answer I always say back to them is no, you're not a narcissist because no narcissist would ever ask themselves such a question.
012 Grey Rock The Narcissist
Today I want to talk to you about a term that you may have seen associated with narcissistic abuse.. This is Grey Rocking, and I’m going to explain how to be a Grey Rock around the narcissist.
011 The Trauma Bond & Addiction To The Narcissist
I get messaged many times about the fact that people just can't break that addiction to the narcissist even if they know that it isn't the right thing for them to keep on messaging or emailing the narcissist in their life. We actually call this a trauma bond, and in this episode I explain exactly what it is.
010 Why Talk Therapy Alone Can't Heal Narcissistic Abuse
While talking therapy does have a place in the recovery process, in this episode I'm going to explain to you exactly why talk therapy alone can't heal narcissistic abuse.
009 What Is Gaslighting
Gaslighting is a very insidious form of psychological abuse. It leaves the victims feeling insane, thinking they are the crazy ones. In this episode I’m going to tell you some stories about gaslighting, so you can recognise it when you see it or experience it.

Really good content
I listened to Caroline’s podcast out of pure curiosity. I wasn’t looking for specific help on the subject, I was merely drawn in by the title and contents. Wow, it has been so insightful and actually given me so many new perspectives on my personal relationships, my own childhood and how I parent. I’m now a regular listener in the car, I like Caroline’s open but professional style and I feel like I’m learning something new each time I tune in.
Caroline, tour knowledge and understanding of the lives we’ve lived is so well understood. At times it feels all these are just so out there they can’t possibly be true but loving it and listening to your podcasts give such clarity and light bulb moments on how these people are and who they affect your lives and those of your children and others. Thank you xx
