Mindfulness & Somatic Experiencing
While I integrate aspects of mindfulness and somatic experiencing into counselling and TRE sessions, I also host Mindfulness Workshops where we will go into more detail on how to harness Mindfulness for greater self-awareness and inner stillness. Mindfulness and somatic experiencing are powerful healing modalities that can heal stress and trauma. Through a process of titration we are able to reconnect with our body while training the mind to be still.

Mindfulness is an excellent antidote to the stresses of modern life. It is the art of paying attention to the present moment with openness and curiosity. Mindfulness can be developed through meditation practice, breathwork and compassionate enquiry. It can be employed throughout the day to deal with stressful situations and to reduce emotional reactivity.
Mindfulness and Somatic Experiencing tools and practices can help us feel more at ease with the stressful situations we may face at work, family, relationships and health. They help us have a more embodied experience of the world while helping us feel safe in the very vessel that houses that experience – our body.
