Childhood Trauma, The Nervous System and Mothering with Cath Counihan Seasons of Matrescence - The Podcast

    • Kids & Family

Catherine Counihan is an Integrative Psychotherapist with over 12 years of clinical experience, working in private practice in London. She specialises in complex trauma, perfectionism, nervous system healing, shifting dysfunctional patterns in our families and parenting. 

Cath had done a lot of personal trauma therapy prior to kids and, despite this, was set back to emotional ground zero by motherhood. One of her areas of expertise is exploring and understanding how our own childhoods impact our parenting journey.

Cath also writes, teaches and hosts  the weekly podcast 'Grow Yourself Up' focused on how we can learn to tend to ourselves in adulthood when we have not had our needs met as children and the way that parenting can challenge our ability to do this.

In this episode I sit down with Cath and have a very gentle, compassionate and open hearted conversation about the ways in which experiences of childhood trauma can shape and impact how we experience mothering and raising children. 

We cover a lot of ground in this episode, 
The ways in which childhood trauma can impact and shape our experience of mothering and raising children We talk about the nervous system and our window of tolerance and how trauma can travel through families and generations Why playing with your children can be feel overwhelming or dysregulating The power of rupture and repair for our children and ourselves We talk about how we can bring in more compassion in our mothering and our  journey of healing from childhood trauma
There is so much wisdom in this episode, and I know that it’s going to be really supportive for you.
