Many of us at some point in our lives will suffer symptoms of overwhelm. It might be a single life event that knocks us off centre, or the wearing effect of ongoing stress that depletes our capacity to cope, even with small things.
These symptoms might show up as a chronic pain pattern or a cluster of symptoms that doctors find difficult to diagnose. Or we can find ourselves looping in cycles of difficult thoughts and emotions; anxiety, anger or a feeling of numbness and disconnect. We might feel like we’re not really in our own lives.
These are all signs that the natural regulation of our nervous system is out of balance.
Using the skills of Somatic Experiencing® (Advanced Student), mindfulness, myofascial bodywork and therapeutic massage, I offer the support you need to gently bring your nervous system back into stable and healthy balance; to a place where the body can feel safe again, restoring a sense of presence, ease and vitality.
During the sessions we will notice and track sensations in the body. We will also do exercises that help bring the nervous system back into healthy regulation. Where appropriate, I might offer touch work to help ease restrictions in the body, supporting the overall movement of your system from ‘fixity to flow’. All sessions are tailored to your individual needs and desired outcomes.
