Live Virtual Narcissistic Workshops and Support Groups

This workshop aims to create a pathway you can see or visualize that leads to happiness. Based on my experience with narcissistic romance, sibling rivalry, parental neglect and rejection, plus 20+ years of education within the academic environment, I come to you with deep empathy and a lot of information to share.

We will study the basics of Narcissistic Abuse but also talk about the reality of our lives when we are under the abuse:

 

  • Do we stay or do we leave? why is it so hard to leave?

  • Is this Narcissism, or something worse?

  • Am I safe? How do I take care of myself?

  • What kind of trauma is this narcissistic personality causing to my mind, body and soul?

  • How do I now co-parent with this person?

  • What about the legal battle of a divorce?

  • How do I date after this sort of relationship? What is my attachment style?

Who am I?

 

My name is Raquel Soteldo, and I am a Registered Psychotherapist. I have been studying Narcissism, Sociopathy, and Psychopathy for about 20 years. In 2010, I wrote my undergraduate thesis on Intergenerational Narcissism. I completed my first degree at Prince George’s Community College in Maryland, where I studied criminology with a focus on sociopathy and psychopathy. After completing my undergraduate degree at York University, I continued my studies to learn more about narcissism.

I have studied Applied Behavioural Analysis, which has helped me gain insights into the correlations between personality disorders like Narcissism, Autism, and ADHD, as well as Alcohol Fetal Syndrome and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. Later, I completed a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology, where I learned practical ways to assist individuals who are victims of Narcissistic abuse and Narcissists themselves. Currently, I am pursuing a Doctorate in Psychology to expand my knowledge and valuable awareness on these subjects further. My ultimate goal is to create a manual or book that will help victims rise out of abuse.

I have been around narcs my entire life. I have had to grow up with the coldness and violence of individuals who suffer from this personality disorder. I also saw it evolve from generation to generation. I suffered a whole lot later in my life as well, and I, too, became a victim of the romance scam that narcs are so infamous for. I know and understand how one can become stuck in the mental prison that is dating and being the family member of a narc, sociopath and psychopath. This is all to say that I sympathize with you. I believe you. I know how hard it is, but I also want to tell you that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and you will come out stronger, better, more self-aware, more evolved and loving yourself after the abuse. It will take time; it took me years to figure this out, but I am here, standing strong, and I know you can, too! I wish you the best recovery and know that you are not alone! ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​

 

​Also, the general feeling behind these workshops is simple: NON_JUDGEMENTAL, NON_SHAMEFUL, transparent and supportive! So, we are all here to share our own stories and create a community so we don't feel so alone in this journey of trying to escape, recover or live with a narcissist!

 

 

See you soon and stay safe out there!
