Healing from Trauma
"The single most important issue for traumatized people is to find a sense of safety in their own bodies."
Bessel van der Kolk
Years of research and clinical experience have found effective means to cope with PTSD and trauma-related issues. I believe in a holistic approach to learn to manage PTSD, stress, and anxiety related symptoms.
Finding the right balance in our lives, working with the body while exploring our thoughts and emotions.
Building and strengthening resilience so that the body and mind will be able to heal.
I can help you turn your traumatic experience into a past memory.
You can put the past - in the past.
Mindfulness helps us consciously pay attention, observe and identify our feelings and sensations without judging them.
We often get caught up in a spiral of thoughts, thinking about things we need to do, our relationships, work or school dead-lines, past events or future worries. These thoughts can be exasperating and anxiety-inducing. Daily Mindfulness practice can help.
When we are mindful, we are focused on the present. We acknowledge and accept our thoughts, feelings, and sensations without judgment. Mindfulness meditation is a practice that teaches us to slow down racing thoughts, let go of negativity, and calm both mind and body.
EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique and Tapping
Tapping into the Unknown
The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. It's also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure. People who use this technique believe tapping the body can create a balance in your energy system and treat pain.
Tapping helps us access our body's energy and send signals to the part of the brain that controls stress. Stimulating the meridian points through EFT tapping can reduce the stress or negative emotion we feel from our issue, ultimately restoring balance to our disrupted energy.
