My name is Anna Runkle, and I teach people to recognize and heal the symptoms of CPTSD and Childhood PTSD. I'm not a doctor or therapist. I’m just someone who grew up with several alcoholics in the family, and all the dynamics that tend to go with that -- broken cars in the yard, welfare, emotional neglect, violence and an environment of deep stress. When I grew up, the telltale signs of Childhood PTSD were all there -- chronic health problems, depression and anxiety, struggles with relationships -- but traditional therapies never seemed to help me.
When I found what DID help, my whole life changed. For 26 years I’ve been teaching people my practical techniques and principles that anyone can use, whether or not they have access to professional help. I focus not so much on what happened in the past, but on healing brain and emotional dysregulation. From there, I help people change the self-defeating behaviors that are common for people who had trauma as kids. I offer courses, coaching and many free tools you'll find on my website at https://crappychildhoodfairy.com
