You can’t change what you don’t understand.

Help yourself by helping others.

How Riana Got Started Working With Childhood Trauma

Riana was working in the school system with kids and childhood trauma when her husband came home one day saying he lost his job as a school superintendent because he was caught having an affair with a teacher.

This blindsided her and she started to research why she did not see this coming.

She started looking at the relationships she had been in and all of the men had some form of childhood trauma. There are ten traumas.

After an amazing James Bond-like story, that you are going to love, she learned that chemistry is very dangerous and led her to being blindsided by her husband’s infidelity.

The Internet May Be Feeding Your Trauma

Close to 90% of people struggle in life and love. You may be adopting other people’s traumas as your own.

Why relationships turn toxic

Children of trauma have incredibly big hearts and want love in the worst way.

So when you meet them they seem amazing.

Then after 4 – 9 months the triggers and insecurities and anxieties start to come out.

What is the best partnership / relationship advice you have ever received?

Don’t wait to get help. 

Trauma does not resolve itself.

About the author, Ken

I am the producer and host of Speaking of Partnership, a podcast that was inspired by a life of wearing the badge of self-sufficiency and independence proudly, until I realized it wasn't really a badge...it was armor.

My passion is helping you experience the power and payoffs of partnership by understanding and appreciating the opposite sex so you can feel safe, confident and understood in your personal, professional and family partnerships.

    So ready to delve into all of this content, seems to be filled with great insight. I look forward to loving and living beyond my dreams.

    This note is actually in response to Ms. Milne’s closing offer on the radio interview. Ken Bechtel referred me to you, I’d appreciate the free initial session with you. Ideally, my partner would also be amenable as we both have childhood trauma to deal with and which has impacted our relationship. Therefore, I’m assuming we’d like;y need individual sessions, potentially followed with couples/relationship work. Lastly, the current pandemic has impacted my business so I would also greatly appreciate being considered for the $1,000 scholarship.

      Marilyn, I’m not sure why this comment had not shown up before today, but better late than never. The best way to address your request is to contact Riana Milne directly through her website. https://rianamilne.com/

      All the best to you – Ken
