Do you want to move forward from your trauma, but you don't know where to begin?
Women who experience trauma often put others first, lose touch with pleasure, have poor boundaries, or lack confidence.
Trauma can make us feel trapped, helpless, disempowered, or as if we are constantly in a “fight/flight” state of hiding, justifying, or defending ourselves. As a result, we are not able to relax, rest, or enjoy our lives.
Often, we repeat unhelpful patterns, lack self-worth, or “play it small”. It can be frustrating and disheartening, and we often blame ourselves for this.
Discover how Restorative Trauma Release Therapy could be the answer
During Restorative Trauma Release Therapy, your body is guided in releasing trauma that has been unable to be processed.
Trauma has been defined holistically as a disruption & overwhelm to the body-mind's capacity to adapt, thrive, & flourish
It is possible for trauma to occur when;
- Too much is happening too soon
- There is too much for too long
- There is not enough for too long
- Power has been taken away from an individual
- Stress outweighs the resources available to deal with it
- We lose our primal protective instincts, intuitions, and responses
- Time, space, and permission are not available for healing
Trauma symptoms may appear immediately or over time as a result of compounding stress & challenges. As the body & mind cope with & resolve stressors, trauma-related symptoms emerge
Among the effects of trauma are:
Physical symptoms include headaches, dizziness, tightness in the body, muscle tension, digestion problems, and breathing difficulties.
It is possible to experience emotional symptoms such as unable to feel, fear, anxiety, panic, overwhelm, loss of choice, difficulty feeling comforted, anger, and shame.
Psychological symptoms include dissociation, mental rumination, low self-worth, negative self-talk, self-blame, memory challenges, depression, and loss of interests.
Symptoms of relationship/social problems include isolation, loneliness, and reenactment of attachment and relationship experiences.
It is not uncommon to feel helpless, powerless, and grounded after experiencing trauma. It interferes with your sense of reality, disrupts your sense of existence, and takes you out of the present moment.
RESTORATIVE TRAUMA RELEASE THERAPY
Sessions are conducted fully clothed. I recommend wearing comfortable, loose clothing for the session.
We begin the session by asking you to acknowledge the most significant trauma in your life. You will be seen, heard, and supported in a safe environment during this session.
We can restore balance to the body through physical movement when we work directly with the physiology of trauma and listen to the messages encoded in the body.
These sessions are for you if:
Your healing journey seems to have hit a wall.
Despite your progress with talking therapies, you feel you need something else to help you further.
You are ready to move on from your trauma
There is a sense of being stuck in old patterns and/or trauma reactions and being ready to release them
*Sessions last for approx 90-120 minutes.
