Yes, the inner-child needs lots of sitting with and healing.
I think for me it might be worth saying that what is considered trauma in childhood can be very different depending on each individual and how sensitive you are.
Just because something isn't textbook horror, it doesn't mean that the painful experiences in childhood are any less valid for you.
