Welcome to Eyes On Trauma

Created from a lived experience perspective, Eyes On Trauma aims to raise awareness of complex trauma, integenerational & epigenetic trauma, childhood sexual abuse and emotional flashbacks in the context of mental health and trauma-informed care.

The information and resources on this website will help you explore these topics further, using a mix of my own lived experience insights and scientific research. I hope you find it useful whether for yourself, to help someone you care about or for your professional practice. ⛑️ I also offer lived experience consultancy to organisations and researchers. I’m part of a few lived experience advisory groups, and am seeking funding for a PhD.

Emotional Flashback Cards

I create emotional flashback cards to share widely, inspired by Pete Walker’s book ‘Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving’. They’re available for free download, or to buy a printed set in the new online shop:

“I created Eyes On Trauma after realising I had experienced complex trauma in my childhood, and a subsequent lifetime of misdiagnosis from professionals. After finally discovering the answers for myself, I can see how scandalous this is and how ineffective the western biomedical model of treating ‘mental health’ is. I have to share what I have found with the world.” 

– Eleanor, founder of EyesOnTrauma.org
