How Childhood Trauma Impacts Adult Relationships - Lyn Smith & Norma Brščič

View descriptionShare

Lyn is joined by Norma Brščič, a trauma and relationship coach, to discuss how childhood trauma negatively impacts adult relationships, and how to recognise/ identify any unhealthy behaviours that arose as a result, so we can resolve the issue(s) and attract/ create healthier relationships going forward.


  • In life we can experience a range of trauma, some small, some big, all of which affect us in different ways, anything from relationship deficiencies to brutal sexual violence.
  • If parents can discover how to handle their child's anger without blaming, humiliation, or isolation, then they are on the road to giving their child the tools to live a successful, healthy adult life.
  • When a child feels unworthy, not enough or undeserving of love, this imprints upon the psychological make up of the child, which they then carry through into later life.
  • We quite often attract behaviours and patterns that feel familiar to us, meaning that trauma sufferers will be drawn towards each other, which can lead to unhealthy or toxic relationships.


'Trauma is what parents didn't do but should have'

'People learn to suppress what they feel'

'These things stay in the body and give the child negative beliefs'
