Biography for May Abougabal, CHt

Are you broken and traumatized by your possessive, toxic partner? Have you lost who you are and feel like you're never good enough? Do you experience stress-related symptoms like persistent fatigue, anxiety, PTSD, IBS, chronic pains, and high blood pressure just to name a few?

My name is May Abougabal. I’m a trauma healing expert, and I will help you heal your trauma and those persistent stress-related symptoms in an average of 1-3 sessions.

How does it work? My approach has three main pillars:

1. Fast Relief

Your trauma has depleted your energy and kept you frozen, but it’s crucial to quickly bounce back and keep moving. I will speed up your healing process. In 1 or 2 sessions, you’ll overcome the pain, stand on your feet, and bounce right back on track.

2. Healing the Unexplained Stress-Related Symptoms

Stress may bring on physical symptoms that have no medical explanation, yet they’re real and excruciating. Migraines, chronic pains, digestive issues, weakened immunity, and skin problems, are just a few examples. We’ll target those symptoms, and as we work on your emotional healing, they’ll naturally start to disappear.

3. Brand New Identity

You’ll be a new person with a brand new identity. Not only will you heal from your trauma, but we’ll also go deeper to work on early life traumas and negative beliefs that made you vulnerable in the first place. You’ll have strength, happiness, and confidence. You’ll open up with crazy energy and motivation to crush it in both your personal and professional lives.
