Go Deeper: work with your autonomic nervous system for healing.
Consider Trauma Therapy for…
Postpartum depression often originates from having experienced a difficult and prolonged childbirth – unfortunately, not all women have smooth birthing experiences – and this experience can impact your nervous system, resulting in a depression that makes it challenging to form the essential bonds with your child in the first year. I can assist you in releasing the depression stemming from your childbirth experience and help restore balance to your nervous system.
If you’ve undergone life-threatening experiences such as rape, violence, abuse, or war, you might have developed PTSD. If you’ve been diagnosed with PTSD, you may have been offered cognitive behavioral therapy. Regrettably, cognitive behavioral therapy doesn’t fully help everyone. Many individuals with PTSD still struggle with flashbacks, anxiety, and retraumatization even after treatment, and for some, symptoms might only surface years later. If you still experience symptoms, I’d like to help. Depending on the duration, there might be some chronicity, and I might not be able to fully restore you to health, but I can aid in your recovery. The therapeutic approach I employ is based on Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing – you can learn more about him on YouTube.
If your upbringing was challenging and your adult life is consequently difficult, you likely lack the resilience to handle life’s challenges. When basic needs for love, security, and connection to a safe adult figure aren’t met during a child’s early years due to parents’ incapability, it paves the way for maladaptive development and a challenging adult life. If this is your background, I can help you build resilience, enabling you to face life and derive positivity from it.
I can tune into your inner child clairvoyantly and see how you were as a child, how your parents treated you, and what you lacked then that you need to build as an adult. I can assist you in cultivating security and grounding, so you have a firm foundation as an adult.
Working with your nervous system fosters resilience – you teach your nervous system and consequently your body to return to the lost balance for some reason. This means you’ll feel well again, but it also entails learning to recognize your own needs, set boundaries, self-regulate your nervous system, and form healthier connections with others, all while rediscovering your grounding. So, it’s like learning to vaccinate yourself against stress – you become capable of discerning when to say yes and no, and you can seek help from others when needed.
