Somatic Therapy is a style of therapy that honours and welcomes the expression of powerful body responses that occur when the body has under gone a trauma.
Through looking at the body’s responses to trauma and incorporating the thoughts at a later time, it allows the body to discharge the extra energy that seems to course through the body. Do not be afraid of what comes up in Somatic therapy. In little doses we will explore your body’s response to trauma so that eventually your bodily responses to similar challenges or triggers of the trauma will lessen and you will gain back the control of yourself and with it a profound wisdom of your inner strength that honours your body’s sensations instead of ignoring them, which is what society has initially taught us to do.
So often my clients say, that they have a lump in their throats, a massive weight on their chests, they startle at the smallest sounds, they can stand to be touched or they gag at certain smells. We can not create a garden of healing, without honouring our body’s responses to trauma, in a supported way that allows the Body to release the pain in small steps.
I have had clients, shake, from their hands to their entire bodies – discharging pent up energy; scream, shout, and punch to discharge rage. I’ve had clients repeatedly cough out their pain; and many who retch and vomit up the trauma that they were forced to endure.
Together after we have allowed the body to discharge as much of the pain as the body is wiling to explore; then we can map out more supportive cognitive approaches to helping you heal. But wisdom you will find in your body will surprise and amaze you. These two kinds of therapy go hand in hand to create true tranquility and a more positive outlook on your personal endurance and strength.
I have found over the course of my practice that people who are wanting to separate/divorce from their spouses but they lack the knowledge needed to navigate the legal system.
My clients want to understand the following;
- how the court system works
- how to avoid expensive lawyers and legal fees
- how to work collaboratively with their spouses to create a child support/spousal agreements together; so that they can bring a document to a lawyer for review and save money
- how to avoid pitfalls in the divorce arena but do a majority of the work themselves.
- to how to work more cooperatively as co-parents instead of battling it out in Family Courtrooms.
I have worked with many individuals, and couples to craft up Child Support, Spousal support agreements, and court documents (Notice of Applications, Responses, and Affidavits etc.). Then you can bring those documents to a lawyer for review.
Since I am not a lawyer, I will not agree to help you in this legal endeavor without your written agreement to seek legal counsel on a consulting basis (at minimum) to help you ensure that your legal needs are addressed.
I can provide information on the free legal options you may be eligible to use and this will save you in more legal costs. With my help, you can bring a draft document to a lawyer that already is mostly complete, and this will save you $1000’s in the long run.
Give me call, and let’s get this started.
One of my clients’ told me during our last session:
We are all like stations on a radio. Vibrating with or not at all with others. He told me that he thought I had a rare gift, of being able to connect with many different stations (vibrations). He felt lucky to have met me. I was also equally honoured to have known him.
So what if we use his analogy with love?
So I wonder when we are emotionally connected with someone…we are hearing them so clearly…it is amazing. When we fight, it’s blurry and fuzzy…and sometimes dead air. When there is that undeniable spark of connection. Do we blow the fuse? Our brains stop working and we float into a new station together…but eventually drop back down into the original station? Hmmm I love this analogy…of love

When there is that undeniable spark of connection. Do we blow the fuse? Our brains stop working and we float into a new station together…but eventually drop back down into the original station?
It is when we float back to the original station, do we get bored? Do we look for another station (or partner)?
Are we even on the same frequency as our partners? If not, I suspect that is when therapy is most often used because people want connection in their lives. They want to be heard and seen.
