I’m here to listen. Trauma and chronic health issues can leave you feeling alone, unheard and misunderstood. It can lead to feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, sadness or anger. Physically, it may result in chronic illnesses, fatigue, pain, digestive issues and/or other symptoms that the medical world are baffled by. Trauma may also result in behaviours such as people-pleasing and perfectionism. Healing trauma can also be "a catalyst for profound awakening" (as stated by Peter Levine creator of Somatic Experiencing). If you are ready for change in your health, life, relationships or purpose, feel free to reach out.
