Chrissie Steyn currently has a waitlist for new clients.
Hi! My name is Chrissie Steyn ("stain" like a stain on your shirt!). I love sitting with people who want to get unstuck and live authentically. Our stories impact our bodies not just our hearts and minds. Overwhelming moments or periods of prolonged stress can manifest in the present if not followed by adequate periods of recovery. You'll know you are stuck if your behaviors or responses are sabotaging current relationships and life goals. You may know the origin of your trauma responses, though I often find clients can't pinpoint a specific incident to explain why they are getting easily triggered or paralyzed. That's ok!
When overwhelmed, our bodies and brains can get disconnected from what's rational about the safety of our present reality. On the other hand, we may think we are safe in the present when we actually are not. This disconnect often shows up in our bodies as everything from digestive issues to disproportionate emotional responses to life and people.
I'd love to help you untangle from shame, get curious about your past, reconnect to your body, and cultivate a better relationship with your authentic self so you can have deeper, richer more satisfying relationships with the people you care about most.
