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, emotional pain and trouble 'switching off'. It may sometimes feel as if episodes from the past keep recurring.
Therapies using the body have been shown to enhance our ability to process past difficulties and increasing 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 an integrative body psychotherapist (Bodynamic, EABP accredited). I combine body psychotherapy with my training as a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner with Comprehensive Resource Model (another powerful psycho-biological approach to trauma resolution).
I am also a trained yoga teacher (Scaravelli-inspired; trauma-sensitive).
I have a background in the performing arts and arts education and view the creative and therapeutic processes as mutually enriching experiences.
