Mindfulness, PTSD, and Childhood Trauma: The Girl and the Umbrella

Counselor Carl ( uses a simple story about a girl and her umbrella to show how to reprogram and heal one’s brain from childhood trauma through the practice of mindfulness. He explains that avoidance prevents the brain from being “upgraded” from the past programming of a traumatic childhood to the safety of the here-and-now as a powerful adult . And he stresses the importance of learning how to “feel the fear and do it anyway.” Counselor Carl’s straight-forward teaching style makes complex concepts easy to understand. Counselor Carl is a licensed, professional counselor with 19 years of clinical experience both online and face-to-face.
