We each have a unique history and our own individual ways of dealing
with it. When we experience disappointment, heartache, physical pain,
or injustice, it's common to create a natural protective distance. This
may manifest as anger, indifference, withdrawal, or deepen into
symptoms of anxiety or depression.
Somatic based therapies such as EMDR and Somatic Transformation explore
the interconnection between our physical and emotional states of being.
There is recognition of how traumatic stress manifests in the body.
These approaches remove the blocks that prevent our capacity for loving
relationships, joy, and living life fully.
