I (Georgie) frequently work with clients who dissociate, which can be caused by trauma. It is also a common symptom of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Dissociation is a feeling of separation or disconnection from the present moment, which can feel like a wall has come between you and your body, emotions, and/or identity. This may also be called a "freeze response" to trauma, wherein someone is unable to act or move due to this feeling of disconnection. I have experience working with systems, which some people call Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) or being plural. My goal in working with systems is to provide consistent communication among your parts (sometimes called "headmates" or other terms). I do not consider "integration" or dissolving a system into a singlet a legitimate, respectful, therapeutic goal. If any of this resonates with you--or if you're confused by what I've said here--please ask! I would love to support you in exploring your dissociation and your parts.
