Somatic Release & Healing Trauma

Our entire history, from the beginning of our lives at conception, is recorded into the cells and tissues of the body. We take shape early on in our lives according to what we have experienced and form beliefs about ourselves, others and the world. In order to deeply transform old patterns, it is necessary to bring awareness to our embodied experience. As we cultivate acceptance and compassion towards the places of pain and holding in the body/mind, release and healing becomes possible.

As a body psychotherapist, I work with body awarenesss and may also offer gentle hands-on work to support the process of freeing up stuck energy. Physical touch is always negotiated.

I also facilitate somatic release in group contexts: TRE and Womb Surround Process Workshops. In addition, I am available to teach an introduction to trauma skills in a group context.

TRE (Tension or Trauma Releasing Exercises)

TRE encourages release through therapeutic tremoring or shaking and can be done either one to one or in a supportive group setting. Find out more by visiting trecollege.com.

“I have attended several of Hannya’s TRE workshops and found them really helpful in dealing with an acute trauma caused by a life-threatening incident. Hannya’s experience, gentle strength and compassion really shine through and create a very safe and caring environment for restoring and healing. The workshops are also extremely practical and I left with useful exercises and resources for continuing the work on my own. Highly recommended.”

Womb Surround Process Workshops

These day or two day workshops, to be held in Lagos, Portugal, are designed for individuals wishing to explore their own prenatal/ birth experience in a context called a womb surround process workshop. This somatically based work is derived from the pioneering work of Dr Ray Castellino in the US. Please see www.castellinotraining.com for a full description of his work and the structure of the womb surround.

“Hannya’s workshop provided a safe space to explore early experiences in a way I hadn’t been able to previously. I had some concerns before the workshop which Hannya took seriously and dealt with sensitively, enabling me to relax into the experience. How the workshop would unfold was explained clearly and with room for me and the other participants to provide our own input. Throughout I felt held, safe and treated with respect. Hannya’s steady reassuring presence and her ability to check in with and to respond to me was very supportive.”
