The "Releasing Your Authentic Self" Year-Long Support Group

Surviving trauma forces us to disconnect from our “authentic self.” To reconnect with their real identity, survivors have to dig deep, which can be scary! Most survivors stay stuck because they don't have the support they need to create lasting change. This is why I created this online group, as a safe place for survivors to work together, for support and encouragement, while working through my book of 365 days of healing! Join a community of survivors working on their healing every day alongside you, supporting and motivating you, validating you. Because healing doesn't happen in isolation! Make 2019 the year you choose YOU!

"I never believed in being in any type of support group. I came across this one and just thought I would try it out. I have not regretted it. It has been the best thing for me. To be able to communicate with others that speak the same language as I do and deal with the same kind of issues due to trauma. I've been able to grow and look at my truths for what they are. I don't think I would be at this level of awareness if it wasn't for the support group Svava Brooks has started."

About The Book

Releasing Your Authentic Self is the tool you’ve been searching for to connect with yourself again. Child abuse teaches you to hide the real you. The exercises in this book were designed to help you release that incredible part of yourself. Finally, you’ll have everything you need to begin this amazing journey of rediscovery!

"This woman totally gets it. Bottom line, this author (Svava Brooks) will hold your hand as you work through the dark places, and you will KNOW that those feelings cannot hurt you now, so you are free to develop into the person who has been struggling to show itself!" - D.

"Svava's impact on my life and healing journey is beyond measure. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is a victim of abuse or who knows a victim. I overcame depression, anxiety, fear, and self-loathing in large part because of her mentorship, support, and guidance. I am immeasurably healthier and happier for having worked with her." - M.M.


The Book:

Releasing Your Authentic Self is a life-changing book for child abuse and trauma survivors. I wanted to give survivors a tool I wish I had in my healing journey, to help them reconnect with their true selves.

Every day for 365 days, you’ll receive a tiny piece of your “truth." Each truth is followed by two questions, which encourage you to dig deep enough to rediscover your beautiful, authentic self.

These questions were created to bypass the resistance of your conscious mind and reveal your toxic core issues. Every time you eliminate a core issue, you’re one step closer to releasing your authentic self.

You can write your answers to these questions directly in the book like a workbook. I’ve left plenty of room after each question for you to do that. Or use your own journal to keep your answers.

The Group:

To help you succeed, I created a private Facebook group where I will share the truth of the day and the two questions. I want to offer a safe place for you to share your journey and get support from others like you. You can also post additional questions pertaining to the truth of the day and I will respond within 24 hours. 

If you need inspiration and encouragement, this is what the online group is for! Every day, you can join in on the conversation, comments, and questions being left by the other members of the group.

The Goal:

If you’re ready to do the deep, hard work of emotional healing, Releasing Your Authentic Self is the tool you’ve been searching for. And the best part is, you can start at any time, just pick the day!

Nothing is more exciting than rediscovering that incredible, unique, awesomely wonderful person you were destined to be. And with the daily additional support from your own community of fellow survivors, I know you will see a big shift in your healing.

"Svava's compassion and unlimited support as a coach provides a safe space for me to explore things and issues that are very scary as a child abuse survivor. Because she walked in my shoes, her insight and understanding cannot be compared to the regular therapy relationship. Her work with me provides help, support, and healing to a completely different level, which aids me in my healing journey." - M.O.

"A female child sexual abuse survivor in the 12-step recovery community asked me how I came out. I thought for a moment and realized Svava's support group gave me the ability just one year ago! Someone with lived experience leading the charge in such a definitive and unashamed manner is like seeing a beacon experience that I, too, can attain." - A.
