Sarah Murphy has launched Talking About Trauma. Which aims to help people affected by traumatic life changing events to start conversations with family, friends, trained professionals or others who have had similar shared experiences.
On the 21st August 2011, Sarah was working as a teacher, when her brother was killed in a sudden, unprovoked attack. Since then she has campaigned for victim’s rights and has collaborated with a number of high profile charities including such as Victim Support to highlight some of the many issues that victims face. Sarah no longer works as a teacher but uses her experience in education to give talks about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the devastating effect it has on victim’s lives. Sarah has since trained as a natural healthcare practitioner and writes widely about the subject of health.
The conversation’s these cards create offer the chance to open up about feelings and emotions memories surrounding a traumatic event in a safe, supportive environment to help you discover ways to move forward into the future by empowering you to speak about the impact the trauma has had upon your life.
Lisa Warner, director of Fink Cards said “I am delighted to be working with Sarah to bring her knowledge and experience to Fink, Talking about Trauma will be a valuable resource to support those struggling to move forward with being unable to talk about the trauma that has impacted them. I know that these cards will be unique but will be welcomed in the sector.”
These card were published in July 2015 and are available from all good book shops and are available to order from www.finkcards.com
