Mal Weeraratne will help heal from trauma of the past

 

Trauma Transference Syndrome is a condition first recognised by Mal Weeraratne, an internationally recognised healer qualified in Tantric healing and emotional release through bodywork. Mal Weeraratne has treated thousands of clients and has spent several decades learning and researching the effects that trauma takes on the body, the results of his findings culminated in his founding of Trauma Transference Syndrome.

A traumatic experience impacts on an entire person. The way we think, the way we learn, the way we remember things, the way we feel about ourselves, the way we feel about other people, and the way we make sense of the world are all profoundly altered by traumatic experiences, which is why it is so important that trauma and the resulting emotions are dealt with and that a victim of trauma is helped to process the experience. If trauma is not process the powerful images, feelings, and sensations do not just ‘go away’ instead they are deeply imprinted and are stored in the body’s cellular memory.

The following illustration is a map how emotions are stored in the body. (Bodily maps of emotions by Lauri Nummenmaa, Enrico Glerean, Riitta Hari, and Jari K. Hietanen)

The active memories of the trauma remains ‘locked’ in the system causing blockages until a ‘trigger’ occurs. When a trigger that allows the victim to access the trauma presents itself, in suffers of Trauma Transference Syndrome the real cause of the original trauma is not recognised and is instead transferred to the new stimuli or trigger, for example if a therapist treats a client who is storing trauma in his/her body and acts as the trigger for releasing this trauma the client will assign the blame for the trauma to the therapist who has helped them access the trauma.

In order to understand Trauma Transference Syndrome it is necessary to understand how trauma enters the body during a traumatic event and how it is stored within the body as well as the effects that this stored trauma has on the victim.  Also how the trauma can be accessed and transferred if not treated.

Why does Trauma Transference Syndrome Occur?

Trauma Transference Syndrome occurs when a past trauma such as sexual abuse has been engraved into the cellular memory and has not been dealt with. It is now recognised that victims of abuse such as rape and sexual abuse suffer from a form of post-traumatic stress. The signs of this trauma scarring are not generally outwardly visible, the memory has been supressed in the mind, but the powerful images, feelings, and sensations do not just “go away” once the danger of attack has passed. These memories are deeply imprinted, more strongly than normal everyday memories and often shards of the trauma occur from time to time manifesting in feelings of anger, rage, sadness, mistrust, fear, shame, loneliness, abandonment.

Mal Weeraratne will help you with whatever trauma you have faced especially if you suffer Trauma Transference Syndrome.

Case study: Mr Jones wants to cover as much of his garden with marquees as possible

We recently had a visit by a Mr Jones, he was planning a party and wanted to extend his house in to the garden using marquees. This is a pretty common scenario for marquee hire companies especially during the winter months.

Mr Jones came in with a diagram of his garden with the marquees he thought he need, two 4x6m marquees, one 3.6×3.6m pagoda and one walkway:

Jones01

The garden is not easy as it’s a very funny shape and on the surface this looks to do the job. My concerns were:

  • Weathering to the house would be difficult. The 4x6m marquee against the house should at least be a 6x4m one for ease of weathering. A pagoda is sloped on all 4 sides and so difficult to weather against a house.
  • There would be many joins. This is not a problem regarding weatherproofing with our guttering kits but it can be a hindrance to party atmosphere and circulation. The risk is the end 4x6m marquee would feel cut-off and under-used (note if this layout went ahead a good suggestion would be to put the food and/or drink in this 4x6m to ensure it is used).
  • Walkways are ideal for connecting marquees together but in this scenario you aren’t really gaining any useable space by having the walkway in the middle there. It’s a bit like a sideways corridor.

So having explained all of this I suggested an alternative approach, a 4x12m marquee and a 4x4m marquee on the side:

Jones02

  • This is much easier to weather against the house (both marquees would have their flat gables towards the house)
  • There is only one join and it is much easier to weather the two marquees side by side
  • You have a larger main area for the guests to circulate.

Note that in this example Mr Jones is actually ending up with slightly less of his garden covered and my alternative option is cheaper than his original suggestion. I can however guarantee that this second idea will be an improvement on the atmosphere and circulation of the party.

As mentioned in other articles I would still recommend having the food and drink out in the marquee (maybe at the far end). People (especially blokes) linger by the bar, having the food and drink outside guarantees the marquees are used fully and everyone doesn’t end up in the kitchen.

An Industry first as RUMM employs a Low Carbon Psychologist

Phil Griffiths 300x227 An Industry first as RUMM employs a Low Carbon Psychologist

Phil Griffiths (pictured 2nd from left) has joined RUMM following the completion of his research on Low Carbon Behaviour with the University of South Wales.

RUMM Energy Management Services was the first company to measure how much energy can be saved through “non-technical” or “behaviour” measures in an industrial or commercial setting. It came as a shock to a technology focussed business that non-technical savings were usually greater than technical savings. It became apparent that this area needed to be understood to minimise energy savings in the workplace and led to the sponsoring of research projects into Behavioural Science at the University of South Wales.

Phil’s research included a behavioural intervention at the Trostre works of TATA Steel which achieved a controlled and significant improvement in energy performance resulting in substantial financial savings and reduced carbon emissions.

We believe that Phil is the first Low Carbon Psychologist appointment anywhere – which is perhaps appropriate as we believe RUMM is the first company to isolate and measure the magnitude of behavioural savings due to accurate metering technology and IBASS software as a means of measuring outcomes. This is an appointment which can help deliver more energy savings for RUMM’s current and future customers.

Phil is pictured with left of picture Steve Lloyd (RUMM) and his academic supervisors at University of South Wales Jim Handley and Steve Thomas. Reduce Business Energy Consumption today with RUMM and their expert team.

Christmas Carol Service of Remembrance

This year were are holding a Christmas Carol Service of Remembrance on Sunday 14th December 2014 at 3.00pm at St Andrew’s Parish Church, Biggleswade.  The congregation will be invited to light floating candles during the service to remember people they have lost.

Lodge Brothers funeral directors Ashford and Funeral directors Woking and many other Lodge Brothers branches get behind several important campaigns where lives are changed or saved such as the Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event, involving thousands of schools, organisations and community groups every year. Set up in 1997, the event is coordinated annually by Brake each November, and aims to encourage grassroots action on road safety and raise awareness about the part we can all play in preventing tragedies and making roads safer. Road Safety Week is taking place 17-23 November 2014, it is asking everyone to ‘look out for each other’ on roads, because being selfish can easily lead to tragedy.

Particularly calling on drivers to protect people on foot and bike by slowing down to 20 in communities, looking twice and taking it slow at junctions and bends, and giving people plenty of room. Specsavers in St Neots are holding a raffle to raise funds for this excellent charity. T L Cobbold are very proud to be support such an important project.
