As human beings, we will all experience some form of trauma. It may come in many forms – being witness to a traumatic event, becoming involved in an accident, having an operation, suffering from illness, losing a loved one or having violence inflicted upon us physically or emotionally. The mere act of living in today’s society can be extremely stressful. Most of us will experience chronic levels of stress from our workplaces and over-scheduled home lives. This can cause tension in our bodies as our nervous system becomes overburdened.
Intentional Healing takes a body-centred approach to healing from trauma, anxiety and stress so that you are able to meaningfully reconnect with yourself and live a fulfilling life. Using healing modalities, such as Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises, Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, I help clients shift old patterns of trauma and tension to facilitate emotional and physical healing.
Intentional Healing provides a safe, non-judgemental space where you can release old trauma stored in your body, relieve everyday stress and anxiety as well as let go of limiting beliefs.

Rewiring the body & brain for healing
Recent developments in neuroscience have revealed the intimate, intertwined relationship between the mind and body. These developments have led scientists to understand that trauma is in fact first a physiological response. This physiological response then results in the emotional and psychological symptoms we are more familiar with.
Trauma, chronic stress and abandonment leaves a real, physical imprint on your body, not only changing the neural pathways in your brain but also creating inflammation and chronic tension within your tissues. The result of this inflammation is chronic illness and pain. In order to truly heal from tension and trauma we need to address the origin of the trauma – the body.
No person is the same and our journey to healing is always going to be truly our own. We may explore a variety of different body-based healing modalities as well as cognitive therapy to find the combination that works best for you. I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and TRE® to help you release the physiological effects of stress and trauma to facilitate emotional growth and healing.
By tapping into the wisdom of your heart and body we will work together to rewire the brain and regulate the nervous system. Through this process you can heal from trauma, anxiety and stress leaving you feeling more connected with yourself and your loved ones.
