Reach out a mental health professional with experience in childhood trauma and treatment. It’s never been easier to access a licensed expert that is trained to help you gently peel back the layers and work through the pain that was inflicted on you in childhood.

Actually, it’s still quite difficult (if not impossible) to access a competent mental health professional who is not only competent in addressing your specific issues but also not an asshole — such as a racist, sexist, elitist, or otherwise problematically biased idiot.
If you’re going to refer people to mental health help, please take the time to curate a list of trusted references who are accepting new clients.
(The fact that they will probably be unaffordable for most people seeking help is another issue. The first step is identifying the right professionals. Figuring out the payment is secondary).
