After surviving a terrifying robbery Oct.3, Kim Kardashian was hysterical and extremely emotional. HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned exactly what she should do to heal from intense mental trauma from the incident, and Kanye West could play a huge part in her recovery!
Kim Kardashian, 35, is lucky to be alive after she was tied up, robbed and held at gunpoint Oct. 3 inside her Paris apartment. After we told you how emotional and hysterical her reunion with Kanye West, 39, was after the incident, we learned what Kim should do now to ensure that she recovers from any trauma she may go through. “If Kim has a relationship with a therapist or medical doctor, a check in with this person can be helpful, psychologist & family therapist Dr. Jennifer Rhodes EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. “Not everyone requires professional intervention after a traumatic event but the more support you have, the better it can be for one’s recovery.” Lucky for her she has a very big, supportive family.
“Kim needs to get to a place where she feels safe and spend time with her family,” she said. Four key things Kim should do to help heal her mind are: “Get to a safe place; Use her family for emotional support; Pay attention to her health by making healthy decisions and making sure she gets enough sleep; Seek added professional support if there seems to be trouble handling any symptoms of insomnia, panic or anxiety, nightmares or flashbacks of the incident,” Jennifer told us.
Although Kim may be in “shock and feeling quite upset,” right now, Dr. Rhodes stressed that putting herself in a safe environment is very important for her recovery. “Having your life threatened, especially when you are a mother, is incredibly scary, Dr. Rhodes said, adding that Kim “is probably trying to simply get around people and an environment she feels safe in.”
Kim’s husband can play a vital role in the aftermath of the robbery. When Kanye learned of the incident he was on stage performing for a packed crowd while on his Saint Pablo Tour in New York City. He was in the middle of his hit, “Heartless” when he abruptly ended the show telling the audience he had to leave due to a “family emergency.” He immediately rushed to get on the phone with Kim to arrange for her to fly home the next day. Jennifer commended the way he handled the situation when he found out and said, “Kanye’s behavior during his NY show was more than appropriate and demonstrated significant caring and commitment to his relationship with his wife and family.
Kim and Kanye arrived to their rented Airbnb Tribeca apartment together Oct. 3, along with Kris Jenner, 60. Since then, has been no sign of anyone exiting the city apartment, and Kim has remained silent, even on her social media accounts. Other than a statement from her publicist revealing she was “physically unharmed” but “badly shaken” she has been laying low. So sad.
We can’t even begin to imagine everything she has been through. Like we told you, this horrific ordeal has only brought Kim and Kanye closer, and strengthened their relationship. However, he did give her security detail a harsh scolding after she was “almost killed.” The couple were surrounded by a massive amount of security guards when entering their NYC pad, and we hear she’s demanding 24 hour security detail now. But seriously, who could blame her! We’re just glad Kim was not hurt, and we hope she is doing well!
