What Is Inner Child Healing?

Inner child work is an approach to recognizing and healing childhood trauma. It recognizes that our behaviors as an adult stem from our childhood experiences. Inner child work focuses on addressing our unmet needs by reparenting ourselves. In other words, the needs that were not met for us as children. Healing your inner child, then, focuses on uncovering and releasing the causes for the childlike aspects of your personality, so you can react to challenges in your adult life as an adult, rather than a kid. Examples of this can be codependent personality type. The good news: Healing your inner child can feel a lot like self-care.

Your “inner child” is a part of your subconscious that has been picking up messages way before it was able to fully process what was going on (mentally and emotionally). It holds emotions, memories, and beliefs from the past as well as hopes and dreams for the future.

Signs that your inner child needs healing:

Get to know your inner child by speaking kindly to your inner child regularly. We can do this through EMDR and Somatic Relief Reprogramming. Connect with a good trauma informed therapist who can do these practices with you safely and effectively. Return to play, imagination, and creativity when doing these practices or even when writing in a journal or simply in your positive thoughts about yourself.

We heal our inner child by using somatic relief reprogramming to process our trauma that is stuck in our body and brain. I use practices such as EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, Brain Spotting Practices and Hypnotherapy to process the trauma locked in the body.
