Stress and Trauma therapy, Postnatal Trauma.

Donna is presently completing training in a technique known as Somatic Experiencing, which is very successful in assisting clients with being present and to avoid being triggered by past events. Somatic Experiencing is a naturalistic way to heal trauma and helps a client learn how to settle and release psychological and physiological stress from their body. The technique trains clients how to manage uncomfortable sensations and gently release them through conscious attention. This allows mind and body to integrate to the present moment.
Using Somatic Experiencing, Donna has had positive results helping women to release trauma in a range of situations; including the loss of a baby, multiple miscarriages, difficult birth experiences, trauma remaining from their own birth, or past trauma affecting a current pregnancy. In addition, I am increasingly helping clients resolve relationship issues, including working successfully with couples.
