Virtual Narcissistic Workshops and Support Groups

I wanted to commend you for taking this step forward. You are strong and brave and deserve to be treated well. You deserve happiness and to be loved as you wish to be loved. No more head games, no more sadness, no more future faking, NO MORE NARC ABUSE! Say it loudly with me.... NO MORE NARC ABUSE... I AM SETTING MYSELF FREE!

As you know, my name is Raquel Soteldo. I am a Registered Psychotherapist and a Certified Narcissistic Abuse Treatment Clinician trained by Dr. Ramani and other experts in the field. I have been studying Narcissism, Sociopathy and Psychopathy for about 20 years. My undergraduate thesis was on intergenerational narcissism, written in 2010. My first degree was when I was 17 years old at Prince George's Community College in Maryland and was in criminology with a focus on sociopathy and psychopathy.

 

After my undergraduate degree at York University, I studied several things all with a focus on learning more about narcissism. I studied Applied Behavioural Analysis and learned about many correlations between the personality disorder (Narcissism), Autism, and ADHD, as well as Alcohol Fetal Syndrome and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I then completed a Master's Degree in Counselling Psychology, where I learned so much about the practical ways to help individual victims of Narcs and Narcs themselves.

 

I am now looking forward to starting a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, where I will continue to expand my knowledge and practical awareness on the subject even further, training other therapists also to be able to help individual narc abuse recover and live a better, healthier and more peaceful life. I plan on working on a manual or book to help victims escape the 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 as 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, sure; 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. Know that you are not alone!

  • 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?

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.
