Closing the Loop
You've lived through an amazing experience or event.
You've not only lived it, you've learnt from it and shared it, whether it's by writing a book (possibly with me), sharing on social media or being honest with your friends and family.
Congratulations! Owning our past — and helping people to learn from our experiences — is a superpower.
There is, however, a downside to Storytelling for Healing — one I haven't talked about before now.
Sharing our stories and ‘outing’ our pasts can be an addictive process and one we grow to rely upon.
We can find connection through difficult experiences, whether it’s with our customers, our friends, our family members or our social media followers.
But, there’s also a absorbing quality.
Every time, we revisit an experience, we energetically tie ourselves to it.
In a physical sense, our body can’t tell the difference between an event we’re experiencing in real life and one that we’re revisiting in our imagination.
There’s also the Law of Attraction. What energy are we living in if we’re constantly revisiting past experiences, even if it’s for the sake of helping other people?
This isn’t meant to put you off sharing your story — quite the opposite!
We want Storytelling for Healing to feel like an empowering, freeing and liberating experience.
And, that requires a final step.
You've lived it, learnt from it and shared it... now Close the Loop and release yourself.
Closing the Loop means:
Not relying on your pain to feel powerful.
Not using your past as leverage in relationships.
Re-learning how to speak the language of happiness, rather than relying on trauma for connection.
Understanding your urge to recreate trauma (or cut and run!) in your work and love life.
Understanding your urge to revisit a painful experience, and how it's a way to protect yourself
Finding purpose (and profit!) in your past without having to constantly go back 'there' or feel trapped there.
Taking back control of who, what and how you share your story.
Sharing your happiness with as much courage as you've shared your pain.
The difference between relief and recovery (and why we want the latter).
Allowing yourself to really enjoy the freedom of recovery — at last!
I was stuck in the loop myself for many years. Living with one foot in the past and one foot in the present, and letting both dynamics impact my fear of the future.
Like me, a lot of people are under the illusion that we have to ‘not get over’ something in order for it to have meaning and a legacy. The blissful news is ... that’s not true.
In a post-pandemic world, it’s more important than ever that we allow ourselves to enjoy the freedom of recovery, cut our ‘trauma bonds’ and release ourselves from the Culture of Suffering.
This is why I created this workshop, Closing the Loop — to help you do just that.
I know it feels scary. It can be the scariest part of recovery, but it’s also the most rewarding.
Closing the Loop isn’t a one-click switch—it’s a new commitment to another way of owning your past, whilst feeling joyful in your present.
More than anything, it will give you permission to not have to cling to suffering as proof that you are worthy.

"I've never heard our attachment to a trauma story talked about with such insight and experience. It felt like a missing piece of my recovery. I can't thank Amy enough for this course!"
