Top 10 Things You Need to Recover from Emotional Trauma - by U!Shine Vienna

Unresolved issues from childhood, as well as traumatic experiences we have not resolved are factors we tend to carry with us into adulthood. Combine this with having to deal with the day-to-day issues of life, and you have a recipe for a meltdown. Fortunately, there is a way to find peace.

Join us on Tuesday, the 7th of May from 18:30-20:00 with Self-Help author Luke Pemberton for ‘’Top 10 Things You Need to Recover from Emotional Trauma.’’ Luke will be sharing his personal experience of trauma, toxic masculinity, and how being his own guinea pig helped turn his life around for the better. Additionally, he will be showing you some of the drawings and books that have assisted in his healing process of emotional trauma.

This talk is FREE for the public, however a €5 donation is suggested. Light snacks and drinks will be available for purchase.

About the Speaker: Self-Help author Luke Pemberton suffered from deep emotional insecurity and low self-esteem all his life. After the birth of his two children several years ago, with a sense of mounting career pressure, and a sudden desire to leap out of a top floor window, he decided to do something serious about his predicament.

After attending regular therapy sessions for 5 years and reading extensively on the subject, he realised his emotional problems stemmed from a series of damaging experiences in his childhood and that the best way to overcome these was to draw how he was feeling. This series of drawings became the basis for ‘’How to find Your Way Out’’ when in despair. Despite this being a cathartic experience, this period of his life was also interspersed with numerous bouts of depression, burnout episodes, a spell in an addiction clinic, and various periods of sick leave. This led Luke to draw his continuing emotional ups and downs that formed the basis of his second book ‘’How to Sort Your Head Out.’’

Luke is now experiencing much better mental health, has found a real peace of mind and is excited about his future.
