Case Study: PTSD, Inability To Set Boundaries

The patient “Louise”,is a woman in her 30’s. She suffers from PTSD, chronic pain syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, recurrent bladder infections, anxiety and a number of other issues. These conditions are physically debilitating and emotionally taxing.

Growing up, her sister was abusive and their parents not only failed to protect Louise but blamed her for her sisters behavior. She also suffered the trauma of sexual assault, once as a young girl and again later in life. Louise was conditioned to believe that her needs were not important and that her role in the family was to take responsibility for her sisters behavior and emotions.

Her history led her to believe that she was not safe in the world and she had to be compliant and self denying in order to belong and be accepted.

EFT helped her get in touch with how angry she has been about her childhood and enabled her to let go of identifying as a victim. She is able to set boundaries with her family, without feeling guilty. She is more at ease in the world because she is no longer stuck in the past where she was a helpless victim.

As her emotional burden is reduced so are her physical ailments. Her healing gives the family an opportunity to heal as well.
