I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. SE is a gentle approach to understanding stress and trauma and ways to reduce symptoms. I teach clients ways to utilize the body’s natural ability to get "unstuck," process feelings and change unhealthy beliefs and behaviours. I am also a student of Integral Somatic Psychology (ISP) Developed by Raji Selvam.
Living with chronic illness, disability, or neurodivergence is hard. Getting through the overwhelm of everyday life feels impossible. You're starting to feel like all you think about is your condition and everything it has taken away from you - work, hobbies, sleep, relationships. Your family and friends don’t get it. They try to help and probably mean well, but sometimes the dismissive way they say things makes you feel worse. You try to hide your symptoms to seem “normal” but inside, you feel like you might break.
