Trauma Healing

Who are these trauma healing sessions for?

Trauma healing is for anyone who has experienced an event in their life that was overwhelming at the time and hasn’t been able to integrate this experience. My focus is particularly around healing sexual trauma which can include:

  • rape
  • abuse
  • being exposed to sexuality at an inappropriate age
  • being shamed for your sexuality
  • abandonment
  • ridicule
  • harassment
  • any area where you felt sexual energy was present and you felt overwhelmed

Trauma is the most avoided, ignored, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering. It is the often debilitating symptoms that many people suffer from in the aftermath of perceived life-threatening or overwhelming experiences. –

Peter Levin (Trauma Expert)

How does a trauma healing session work?

The experience of trauma, whether its physical, emotional, or sexual abuse results in a loss of connection – to ourselves, to others, to the ground beneath us, to our bodies, our families and to the world around us.

As a consequence of trauma our choices become limited as we avoid certain feelings, people, situations and places. This constriction leads to a loss of vitality and costs us our freedom.

These trauma healing sessions start with where you are with no idea of forcing or pushing but instead using an approach that supports coming back into your body. Feeling and claiming your boundaries, and developing the capacity to feel everything including pleasure in a safe way. Allowing you to develop a deep intimacy with your-self, infused with confidence and self-love.
