The Impact Of Childhood Trauma On Parenting with Nichol Mills


Through the sharing of her own history starting with conception, Nichol Mills, a life coach, talks about Trauma Incident Reduction and how that helped her put the pieces of her life together.

Focusing on the goal of releasing the emotional charge with Trauma Incident Reduction, Nichol continued to process her own trauma surrounding her complicated and at times abusive relationship with her mother and used the lessons to be a more intentional parent to her own children.

Trying to understand her mother in relationship to the trauma she’s experienced has helped Nichol better understand her own childhood and upbringing with a mother who couldn’t advocate for her own child.

Learning to set firm but healthy boundaries with her mother has helped Nichol prioritize her needs in all relationships.

Nichol shares “If I didn’t have the mom that I had, I wouldn’t be who I am” and is grateful for becoming more compassionate and ultimately a more present and loving mother to her children as a result of her relationship with her mother.

Nichol talks about getting the love and nurturing she needed from mother figures who, though not her biological mother, were able to provide her with the love and validation her mother wasn’t able to give her.

These parental figures helped Nichol become a better parent to her 2 children.

Nichol continues to put herself out there and becomes vulnerable despite the fears that come up.

Tune in to learn more about Nichol’s amazing journey from abuse and neglect to empowerment and confidence.
