Dr Allan Schore talks about the emotion of shame which he feels is often overlooked. He explains shame as ‘hiding from oneself as well as others’ and that to heal from trauma we need to let go of the conscious mind. David reflects on his own journey with shame which stopped him from feeling that he deserved a life of happiness because of childhood sexual abuse.
