Recovering from narcissistic abuse - It can be done and I will share what may be necessary step by step.
Simple tools to take away -
Co-parenting with a person who loves conflict, who is rigid, entitled, vindictive, antagonistic and dysregulated can be one of the most difficult things you ever do in your life. That's why you need all the support, understanding and the skills to navigate this difficult journey.
If you are interested in the workshop, you may be going through the following.
⬜ The narcissistic parent treats you like it is mandatory that you parent, but it is a choice for them
⬜ The narcissist breaks childcare arrangements or doesn’t show up at all when it’s their turn to pick the children up
⬜ They trash you to your children
⬜ They are surrounded by people who enable their lies and drama and keep trashing you in front of your children
⬜ Your children feel like it is their duty to protect them and they get caught in the crossfire
⬜ You are left to do everything from supervising children to running the entire home whilst working.
⬜ They make you feel bad about whatever goes wrong in child’s life
Amidst all of that chaos, you are probably blaming yourself,
⬜ for choosing to have a child with a narcissist
⬜ for the toxic separation that children go through or the toxic environment that your children are brought up in if you are still living with them
⬜ for gaslighting and manipulation your children are put through by the other parent
⬜ for having ignored the red flags in the relationship early on
⬜ for having to allow your children to spend solo time with the narcissistic parent without you being there to protect them
Your dilemma probably is that you neither want to gaslight your children nor you want to say anything bad about the other parent to protect your children from further trauma.
Truth be told, having an antagonistic parent does have its toll on children. The most painful part of this Herculean task is to watch the pain, confusion and trauma that your children experience whilst you are going through confusion, numbness, depression and anxiety yourself.
There is HOPE and GOOD NEWS.
In this workshop, we are going to develop a basic understanding of how to support yourself and your children amidst this chaos. We will draw an action plan together for you to take away so that you walk away from the workshop with clarity and actions to take to look after yourself as well as your children.
You can be that one solid parent who is present and consistent in your children’s life that can be an offset to the narcissistic parent.
You can provide your children with the empathy, compassion, secure attachment and the mirroring your child needs.
“The tyranny of narcissistic abuse is that we blame ourselves for the narcissistic person’s behaviour” - Dr. Ramani Daruvasula.
I can help you decide on how to support your children whilst ensuring your well-being is taken care of.
The reason why I do the work I do is because of my own experiences. I was that child who got trapped between two narcissistic parents' crossfire and needless to say I attracted many narcissistic people in my life. I spent years drowning in quicksand of abuse but blaming myself for it. Often or almost all the time, I thought abuse was love due to the childhood trauma that I have experienced. This kept me trapped in narcissistic relationships that sucked my soul out of me. It was when my daughter was born and I was diagnosed with severe depression, generalised anxiety disorder with suicidal thoughts that I decided to change the way I lived. Since then, I have been spending every minute consciously carving a better life for my daughter and I. It is my dream to see our children grow with the love and empathy that they deserve. I would love to see you claim your authentic self back after years of abuse and live a vibrant life.

You are worried about the fact that the narcissistic parent is installing opposite values and engaging in extremely permissive parenting to offset your best effort in parenting.
