The world is full of stress
I create and nurture a safe space where the seeds of healing can be planted.
Everyone hasstress, because it’s part of life. Some people also experience trauma, which is an extreme form of stress.During a traumatic event, our instinct to survive takes over. Our mind becomes disconnected from our body in a process called dissociation.
As Dr Gabor Maté says, “Trauma isn’t what happens to us, it’s what happens inside us.”
Being dissociated allows us to endure danger and pain, but only for a short time. When we dissociate, we also disconnect from other people. After a traumatic event, the survivor may struggle to reconnect fully with their body or to connect with other people. Chronic dissociation doesn’t usually heal by itself and may require professional intervention.
The way to heal trauma is also inside us. We need to work with our nervous system so that our body can heal and we can enjoy meaningful relationships.
I call this place the healing zone
My aim is to provide a space where my clients can reconnect with themselves deeply and effectively.
Although my work is not about a quick-fix, if we can rapidly connect with our natural healing resources, why not? It’s not just about saving time and money through better health. It’s also about being true to ourselves. Circumstances and other people often pull us off balance and the result may be illness or depression. Professional care can help us get back on our feet.
The inner resources we discover at such times will stand us in good stead for the future, too.
In the healing zone, you can find new ways to support your own health naturally.
I’m a registered provider of Trauma and Tension Release Exercise (TRE®) and have extensive counselling experience. I also hold a master’s degree in psychology. I help my clients to become comfortable with their nervous systems and to regulate their emotions and stress better.
I create and nurture a safe space where the seeds of healing can be planted. This healing space already exists inside each of us, but sometimes we need to take a moment out of our busy schedules to connect with it.
When you shut down emotion, you’re also affecting your immune system, your nervous system. So the repression of emotion, which is a survival strategy, then becomes a source of physical illness later on.
