Started seeing E in a workshop. She was early twenties and on the marijuana maintenance program and believed that she had been sober for nine months as that is when she stopped using hard drugs. She only smoked before bed to help her sleep. She didn’t appreciate me telling her, she had no sobriety. She had been the victim of rape at seven years of age.
We continued working together on a one to one basis. She had already learned relaxing techniques and some mood changing techniques. She hated men and had problems working with men. We began removing emotions from childhood abuse as I was unable to approach the rape situation with several different techniques and approaches. It took about a month to stop the drug use. And then we began working on removing the rape associated problems. We started to develop goals for self-esteem and confidence and many other attributes for good living, such as patience, honesty, integrity, forgiveness and a pain-free life. She began developing alternatives for anger, violence, and resentments. We continue to see each other once or twice a month for six months for coaching. She has assisted me with a client who was assaulted at a young age. She also helped a young girl that had been abducted, drugged and raped make a complaint to authorities and held it together until after she was completed and away from the girl, then released her emotions.
