Free/Affordable Self Help Resources

For Healing Trauma, Childhood Abuse & Chronic Illness

Below are the resources I found most helpful during my own healing process. I will be adding to this list periodically as I come across new & helpful additions.

 

Please private message me here on my site or on Facebook (Meg Happens) if you have other sources that helped you and you‘re willing to share. I will gratefully post them as well. πŸ™πŸΌ

 

My ultimate goal is to reach as many people as possible who are in need of hope and resources for healing, because healing is possible- no matter what!!!

 

Please share these freely. I can’t begin to recall the number of times I was guided to a resource that ended up helping me tremendously.

 

Do check out my blog posts and podcasts, starting from the bottom and working your way up, in case they contain something that might help you or a loved one on your own journeys, as I‘ve been guided a thousand times over. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

Happy Healing! ❀️❀️❀️
