What is somatic therapy?

The body and mind share a close bond. When stress or trauma strikes, our nervous system reacts, triggering a fight/flight response. While initially protective, lingering in this state can hinder us. Somatic practices help us reconnect with our emotional selves, releasing stored tension. If you’re feeling trapped by trauma, somatic therapy offers a path to release, integrate, and progress.

A direct approach

As a therapist, being direct and engaging is paramount in my approach. By fostering open dialogue and actively listening, I create a safe space for clients to explore their thoughts and emotions without any shame or judgement. Through direct communication, I empower individuals to confront challenges head-on and work towards positive change. With an engaging approach, I strive to build trust and rapport, guiding clients on their journey towards healing and personal growth.

Virtual Counselling

The clinic offers video counseling through the online booking system’s platform, Jane. If you’re new to video counseling or feeling a bit apprehensive, that’s completely normal! I recognize that building trust and comfort online may take time for some clients, while others may find it less intimidating to connect from the comfort of their own home. Many clients appreciate the ease of doing deeper emotional work from home, rather than having to immediately return to the outside world after a session. Wherever you are, I’m here for you, ready to embark on this journey together with curiosity and guidance.
