Carey launches transformative life guide for millions living with abuse and trauma
Carey, has launched her much-anticipated second book – an alternative guide to healing. The book has been described as ‘a beacon of hope for the millions of people in the UK who have suffered challenging and traumatic life experiences’.
In her book, titled Reclaimed Innocence, the inspirational Carey – a former victim of child abuse herself – endeavors to inspire and guide others by sharing intimate details of her own personal journey of recovery and details of the unique rehabilitation practice she has developed to global acclaim over the last 25 years. Carey is in much demand for the transformative, complementary therapy, known as Alchemy in Movement, which she shares worldwide in her group workshops and private counselling sessions.
Carey’s approach combines movement, meditation and communication techniques to seek, explore and engage mind, body and soul. She takes readers on a wild and beautiful journey, locating and repairing hidden wounds along the way, demonstrating the possibility to move on from past experiences however traumatic or challenging.
Carey said: “There are millions of people in the UK who are living without support, struggling to come to terms with traumatic and challenging experiences in their lives such as child abuse. Of those who do seek help many receive mixed success with traditional therapies and practices. A traditional approach does not always work as effectively as we would hope. The body can be left out as we focus more on intellectual facts around the trauma and its outcomes. Trauma can cause disassociation from body, and therefore it is the body then that also needs rehabilitation.”
Carey offers an alternative pathway for those who may have already tried traditional counselling and therapy without success but who are still searching to reclaim a better life.
In Reclaimed Innocence, Carey draws on her own life story, which she also documented in detail in 2010 in her debut autobiography Ms’ Guided Angel – a book that was much welcomed by abuse networks and organisations worldwide, including the National Association of People Abused in Childhood (NAPAC). Harrowing, courageous and inspiring, she tells of a childhood overshadowed by sexual abuse and a troubled adolescence in which she ends up pregnant, homeless and broke at 16. By 34, Carey is a single mother of six living on little more than survival instinct and a vision of better times. It is not until she stumbles on the art of expressive dance and movement that she starts her remarkable journey of recovery.
Carey said: “Anyone who has experienced a traumatic life experience will know something of feeling numb, of detachment and the inability to be fully present in day-to-day living. Shock and trauma can detach us from reality, from relationships and what we love. We try to avoid situations that remind us of that original trauma. In order to fulfill our lives we need to find a way to re-enter and re-connect with the world. I am endlessly soul searching and exploring ways to expand my own heart and soul further into the world so I can live with meaning in this life. I share my findings with others through this book.”
She continued: “Readers of Reclaimed Innocence will find an approach that is grounded in a physical practice yet addresses the spiritual and emotional side of our human nature. I address shame, guilt, fear and jealousy to name but a few of the challenges we face. I also seek answers to the questions that will allow us to connect more deeply to our innocence, which I believe is the most powerful way to heal the dysfunction in our lives. For example, how do we tap into our own innocence and allow it to be our guide? Can we accept our own vulnerability with honesty? Can we trust that we will be heard? And, when we overcome trauma in our lives, what gifts may we discover?”
Reclaimed Innocence is priced a RRP £9.99 paperback and Kindle £4.01. The book is available from all leading retailers including independent booksellers, both online and in-store.
