The Hidden Impacts of Unresolved Trauma
The Hidden Impacts of Unresolved Trauma | Dr. Barbara Schwarck PCC

For many years, I felt like I was just surviving – even after extensive therapy. I didn’t realize that unresolved traumas from my past were still negatively impacting my life. In particular, they prevented me from fully thriving in my career and experiencing fulfilling relationships. 

I spent 5 years in regular therapy processing my issues. While helpful and appropriate at the time, I realized it mainly just allowed me to unpack my “baggage” without fully resolving it. The traumas of my childhood continued lurking under the surface, especially on the cellular level and definitely on the unconscious level. I discovered they sneakily and indirectly affected many aspects of my life, like my self-confidence, ability to earn higher income, and capacity for intimacy in relationships.

The Need for Biochemical Release

Trauma is a complicated matter. There is big “T” trauma, little “t” trauma, intergenerational trauma, and everything in between. My personal definition of trauma is: any event that had an overwhelming response and that left one feeling overwhelmed and unfinished.

Just understanding your past traumas logically is not enough. And even releasing the pent-up emotions around past events may still not completely neutralize their grip on you. What I’ve learned is that biochemical changes are needed to fundamentally transform your brain’s wiring around traumatic events. Without that neurological shift, aspects of the trauma remain embedded in your subconscious and unconscious.

After about 5 years of individual and group therapy, I realized that I was missing something. Yes, in many ways I was functioning better in my day-to-day but I didn’t want to just survive my trauma, I wanted to thrive. The common belief that it was impossible to heal a scar bothered me as it seemed to confine me to keep my trauma with me.  And so I started to look around for other ways of healing and transformation.

Early on I learned about muscle testing. It was a bit of a stretch for me to believe that muscle testing worked. It seemed so foreign. But it didn’t take long and I could see how accurate and valuable it was. Add to this a variety of transformational techniques such as Neuro Emotional Technique®, mindfulness, and traditional coaching, and my traumas started to transmute. The fundamental biochemical change I experienced around key issues from my past and the rewiring of my emotional triggers and automatic reactions – essentially reprogramming my brain to be neutral around past hurts and struggles was the key to finally allowing me to move from surviving to fully thriving.

My Breakthrough Results

The results after doing this intentional neurological rebalancing were remarkable. Areas of my life I had struggled with for ages suddenly opened up. I became confident asking for promotions and higher compensation from companies I worked with. Negative self-talk about not deserving abundance dissolved. Fears of intimacy vanished, and at age 45 I experienced my first healthy, long-term romantic relationship.  

In short, directly changing my brain wiring through targeted techniques produced incredible breakthroughs mentally, emotionally, relationally, and financially. It was the key difference that propelled me from surviving to truly thriving.

Like all of us would, this powerful personal experience compelled me to act and implement. I wanted to help others in an even more powerful and effective way.  Five years into my personal healing journey, Neuro Emotional Coaching® was created.
