Online Somatic Mind-Body
Online sessions provide the opportunity to work from the privacy and familiarity of your own home. Many clients find online sessions a safe and convenient way to be supported - especially when experiencing stress, anxiety or trauma. Studies show that online therapy sessions are very effective in helping those with underlying anxiety and stress.
With online sessions you can choose either Zoom or Skype and whether you'd prefer audio with video or just audio. Or you can choose to have your sessions by phone.
Online sessions are the same session format as face to face sessions, the only difference is they're online! The aim is the same - to help restore a harmonious balance to your body, mind and emotions, and support you to be free from the effects of trauma and stress.
Using Somatic Experiencing techniques developed by renowned trauma therapist, author and teacher - Dr. Peter A. Levine, whose breakthrough techniques have helped thousands of trauma survivors tap into their innate ability to heal, I'll support you on how to return to a balanced nervous system state - the natural state of being where life is lighter and flows more easily.
