Gina Papanou, Self-Love/Narcissistic Abuse Recovery Coach, Author, Educator

I'm Gina Papanou, also known as The Conscious Thriver, and I'm passionate about helping survivors of narcissistic codependency and C-PTSD rebuild a life of peace, joy, and self-love.

Narcissistic abuse and codependency devastate the life and well-being of victims. Many people may have unknowingly been raised by a narcissist parent and/or have had an adult relationship with one. They often experience the damaging effects of codependency and C-PTSD and may seek professional help. However, they may not find a healthcare professional who really understands their pain or who is knowledgeable enough to help. Narcissists are emotional manipulators and can easily deceive anyone who doesn't have an intimate understanding of their tactics. At times, unqualified mental health care professionals will only re-traumatize the victim.

Healing from narcissistic abuse is possible and it takes time and a commitment to one's well-being. I now enjoy a level of freedom and peace of mind I once could only dream of. I have surrounded myself with healthy, loving relationships, and people who truly care about my well-being. It's been a process worth undertaking and you can do it too.

As a Self-Love/Narcissistic Abuse Coach, I use my experience and what I've learned to help and support others who want to become conscious thrivers. If you are enduring narcissistic codependency please know you are not alone. You are one of the millions around the planet. Getting help and support from someone who understands your situation and has been through what you're going through, can be an important step towards your healing,

As you may know, many people aren't even aware they are or have been in a relationship with a narcissistic person. People high on the spectrum of narcissistic traits are the ultimate wolves in sheep's clothing. Some are overt (loud and insulting), while others are covert (quiet, polite, and self-conscious). Yet, all are highly manipulative.

If you find yourself struggling with an anxious state of mind, or feeling depressed, doubting yourself, having social anxiety, being highly triggered, having panic attacks, or being unable to feel present in the moment, then odds are you are or have been in a relationship with a narcissist.
