I am a fully qualified and BACP registered Transpersonal and Integrative Psychotherapist who works somatically - with the body, the autonomic nervous system and the subtle energy body. This approach is particularly helpful for clients who have experienced some form of trauma, as it helps to gently unwind traumatic charge from the body.
When we experience something very upsetting or traumatic, our nervous systems respond very quickly to keep us safe from harm. The fight/flight/freeze response is something that we share with all other animals, but somehow we have forgotten how to allow our systems to recover and rebalance in the way that animals do once a threat has passed. As a result, we experience all sorts of debilitating symptoms, from anxiety, to depression, insomnia, self-hatred, comfort eating, self-harming, or relating to others in ways that we later regret. But the body has its own subtle and profound wisdom, as well as an innate capacity for healing, given the right support.
Please get in touch to find out more. I offer a free 20 minute online consultation and would be very happy to answer any questions that you might have.
