Somatic Experiencing Therapy in Niagara Falls

Somatic Experiencing Therapy Supports Healing Trauma

"The body reacts profoundly in trauma. It tenses in readiness, braces in fear, and freezes and collapses in helpless terror. When the mind's protective reaction to overwhelm returns to normal, the body's response is also meant to normalize after the event. When this restorative process is thwarted, the effects of trauma become fixated and the person becomes traumatized" (Levine, 1997, p.6) 

Healing Trauma Through Psychotherapy

"If you are experiencing strange symptoms that no one seems to be able to explain, they could be arising from a traumatic  reaction to a past event that you may not even remember. 


You are not alone.

 

You are not crazy. 


There is a rational explanation for what is happening to you. 


You have not been irreversibly damaged, and it is possible to diminish or even eliminate your symptoms" 


(Levine,1997, p.5)

Adrienne Richardson PhD RP Niagara Falls Psychotherapist Can Help

Popular approaches to healing trauma like CBT provide only temporary relief of trauma at best. 


Somatic experiencing focuses on body sensation, rather than intense emotion, and is the key to healing trauma. 


Learn how to be more aware of any emotional reactions swelling up inside you, and how your body is experiencing these emotions in the form of sensations and thoughts. 


 Adrienne a gestalt psychotherapist, pairs her gestalt training with somatic experiencing.  She can help support you in healing from your trauma. 


There is no one that utilizes the combination of these therapies in the Niagara Region. 


Let her introduce you to new possibilities for the treatment of your trauma.
