About Me

Trauma is the response to deeply distressing or disturbing events that overwhelm our ability to cope, and leave us feeling helpless.  Due to the nature of the trauma, and the pain that you have experienced, a lot of the feelings and memories get stored in the subcortical brain and body, where they remain ‘dormant’, outside of your awareness.  However ‘dormant’, they still remain active inside of you, influencing your beliefs about the world, your capacity to love and be loved, your relationships, your self-image, your emotional state of mind and overall health and well being.

Trauma can lead to symptoms that can range from anxiety to depression, PTSD to insomnia, addictions to eating disorders, attachment disorders to struggles with intimacy, or from chronic pain to illness that manifests itself in the physical.
