PTSD and other Trauma Symptoms can be healed with Somatic Therapy and Counseling

People who have experienced trauma often experience a range of emotions including:

  • Emotional Flashbacks
  • Tyrannical Inner Critic
  • Toxic Shame
  • Numbness
  • Anxiety and or depression
  • Hyper-vigilance and the inability to relax
  • Abject feelings of loneliness or abandonment

These symptoms can be relieved.  You can feel better.  Somatic therapy and counseling can help. 

A traumatic experience is any event where you felt overwhelmed and unable to defend and protect yourself.

You do not have to live with the impact of trauma for our whole life.  You have an innate capacity to heal these wounds.  People can heal after experiencing intense rage, fear, helplessness, and loss. 

As a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and a Certified Sensorimotor Psychotherapist, I will assist you to resolve the energy that remains stuck in your body and nervous system as a result of enduring traumatic events. Your body and mind will be able to relax so that you can live with ease.

Somatic Experiencing can help heal the symptoms of trauma held in the body

People who have been through traumatic experiences can be stuck in a self-protective response that does not serve them.  Under stress, the muscles in the body can tense in patterns of highly charged readiness.  Once the traumatic event is over, the tension can still remain in the body so that the person can not relax after the traumatic event.   Tension and stress is held captive inside and can create unpleasant symptoms. 

Somatic Experiencing sees resolution of trauma as the completion of incomplete survival responses and the ensuing discharge of held survival energy.  Somatic Experiencing can relieve the symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTSD) as wells as falls and car accidents.

Somatic therapy can help heal the symptoms of PTSD.  You can have your life back again.
