What is Somatic Experiencing and How is it Different Than Traditional Counselling?
There are many different ways that life events might erode your resilience. Approaching healing solely from a talk therapy/cognitive perspective will limit your capacity to prevent repeating patterns that occur as a result of past trauma. I help support people as they move through the process of working through the impacts of trauma in their thoughts, emotions and in their body.Through the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute, I completed the three-year program to receive the SEP trauma therapy designation. I had the privilege of studying with Berns Galloway, Linda Stelte and Dea Parsanishi. With additional support and consultations from Patricia Berendsen and Ariel Giaretto, amongst others. During my SETI studies I also participated an online seminar with Dr. Laurence Heller outlining the Neuro Affective Relational Model for working with shame.
In 2017 I completed the master course on Sexual Trauma with Dr. Peter Levine, developer of Somatic Experiencing.
In addition to the academic training I have had so far, I am also deeply influenced by my own ongoing healing experience as a trauma survivor. This has shaped the way that I approach my work because I understand on a personal level just how important it is to have the right amount of support throughout the healing process.
