Trauma and Nervous System Dysregulation

4 February 2022

Do you suffer with chronic pain & fatigue, fibromyalgia, IBS, thyroid imbalances or other “syndromes” which tend to be clusters of the above and other auto-immune symptoms?

I’m completing a dedicated training with Peter Levine that is designed to help me support my patients through somatic interventions with the above types of diagnoses.

If you have any of these syndromes it is REALLY important to work with therapists that have in-depth knowledge on how to work with trauma and nervous system dysregulation.

Combining this knowledge with Craniosacral Therapy + the psychotherapeutic approach Compassionate Inquiry, developed by Gabor Mate, I can hold a safe and regulated place to work from. Which means no risk of retraumatisation or further harm for the patient, which is so crucial in this delicate work.

Some of the protocols I use will cover:

+ Working with Minimisation & Critical Self Judgment: Awareness & Exploration

+ Working with Emotional Trauma & the Inner Child: Recognising Expansion & Contraction

+ Utilising Somatic Tools to Increase Flow: Developmental Trauma, Chronic Pain and COVID-19

+ Medical Trauma & Münchausen by Proxy: Support through Regulation & Embodiment

+ Therapeutic Presence & Rhythm: Connecting a Client with their Life Force

I also bring my own unique experience of working through almost a decade of my own health issues. So I truly know how it feels to live with these debilitating symptoms.

I’m releasing a new and unique hybrid treatment plan this Spring. If you’d like to know more about this and working with me you can DM me in complete confidence or email: hello@stillpointhealth.co.uk.
