My special niche is working with women with stress-related physical and emotional pain.
Unreleased stress, or emotional overload is held as a constant tension or blockage in your body. This can cause physical pain, make it difficult to stay in touch with your body, make it hard to be present in the here and now, and cut you off from enjoying the experience of having a free body and mind.
Life can be very hard at times. It's common to feel alone with your pain and to feel overwhelmed or perhaps feel different (or even ashamed of being different.) The good news is that being in pain and feeling overwhelmed can be keys to healing and learning to open yourself up more. The work of healing past wounds takes courage and bravery, and motivation is needed.
Being a highly sensitive person and a mother, I know from my own experience of healing complex post traumatic stress syndrome that by creating safety, connection and trust, your nervous system and the rest of your body can start to heal.
Like most people who have experienced significant trauma, I could not feel safe in my body or regulate my emotions very well, and it was challenging to stay present in the here and now. In order to avoid feeling overwhelming pain, I would frequently escape into my mind and try to control life. Identification with the stories I told myself and the resulting emotions, my body was filled with painful tensions.
Biodynamic breath work and trauma release, meditation, gestalt therapy, and painting have helped me to become more connected to my body and to the observing presence inside.
Becoming a mother to a daughter in 2015 forced me to face and deal with my deeply buried emotional pain, projections, conditioning and generational trauma.
My passion and professional background
The body, pain and healing has always fascinated me. In 2009 I was licensed as a Dr. of Naprapathy after five years of study at the Scandinavian College of Naprapathic Manual Medicine. During the following decade, I worked mostly with stress related pain in the head, neck, jaw, shoulder and back.
My passion for working with the emotional, mental and energetic roots of physical pain has lead me to evolve into breath work, which is a wonderful and powerful method for healing pain and overwhelming feelings and emotions. Combined with physical bodywork it is even more potent.
In 2022 I will complete over 460 hours of BBTRS certification training. BBTRS practitioner training is considered to be the leading and most comprehensive there is, and it's been truly amazing!
Keywords and phrases for me in my work are: active and empathic listening, receptivity, trust, intuition, freedom, joy, safe space and courage.
