154: Rebuilding Your Nervous System: Tools for Trauma Recovery with Sara Miley

Trauma can wreak havoc on your nervous system. If this is something you’re working through, you’re not alone. In this episode of The Dr. Kinney Show, I sat down with Sara Miley who is a trauma recovery coach. 

We are diving into some different tools and tricks you can use to get your nervous system back to where you want it to be after suffering from trauma in your life. 

Sara Miley is an experienced crisis advocate and an IFS-informed trauma recovery coach. Through her own learned and lived experiences, she is passionate about helping survivors find the roots of their suffering. By making sense of their trauma, they can make meaning out of their healing.

Her focus is on survivors of developmental/childhood trauma, attachment wounds, emotional abuse and neglect, and cPTSD – those who struggle with the emotional and relational aftereffects of dysfunctional formative years.

She is the owner and coach of Full Circle Wellspring LLC, the founder and coachsultant of the Personalized Trauma Healing System™, and the host of the Trauma Survivorhood podcast.

She is available for private and group consulting, interviews, press, podcasts, and trauma-informed consulting for businesses.


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • How Sara helps people work through trauma blocks and how the body responds
  • The different types of traumas and how they impact you
  • How your body will react to triggers that you may not even realize
  • The tools, techniques, and resources that can help you build your window of tolerance and combat dysregulation
  • What happens when you’re in a chronic fight-or-flight phase 
  • How you can become more aware of your responses to things and find the right tools to help improve 
  • What the healing process is like for trauma survivors 


If you are at a place where you realize that you are ready to do some work and begin the healing process, visit Sara’s website and check out the resources they have available to help you find the right coach for you.
