Natural and effective approaches to embodied living
for the treatment of stress and trauma
Hello and welcome!
Unresolved stress and past trauma can have a disruptive effect on our emotional, mental and physical health. It can cause many confusing symptoms, including difficulties with feeling at ease with oneself, problems with pain and trouble 'switching off'. It may sometimes feel as if episodes from the past keep recurring.
Somatic Experiencing, body psychotherapy and yoga have been shown to enhance abilities of self-regulation after disruptive events.
Stress and trauma 'live on' through the response of the autonomic nervous system, so by learning how to make use of the body's innate abilities to come back to balance after powerful experiences, we can increase our sense of wellbeing and gently expand on our capabilities once more.
'Trauma is in the nervous system, not in the event.'
Dr Peter Levine PhD, Founder of Somatic Experiencing
My name is Kate Grant and I am a fully qualified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner with a background as a yoga teacher (Scaravelli-inspired; trauma-sensitive). I have just completed a 4 year training in Bodynamic Psychotherapy (a body-based approach to developmental psychology).
I have a background in the arts and arts education and view the creative and therapeutic processes as mutually enriching experiences.
