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 www.trelondon.com.
2019 dates for the Stroud TRE group
New! TRE now at Stroud Yoga Space. Next date is Saturday 7th September. Please contact me for further information or booking. Fee £25 (concessions by arrangement).
Womb Surround Process Workshops
These day or two day workshops, held in central Stroud, 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.
