Somatic Experiencing is a body-based psychotherapy with the ability to resolve deep-seated traumas, regulate the nervous system, and connect you to your body’s innate wisdom. so you can live the life you truly want
1:1 with Nala
We’ve all used creative methods to keep ourselves safe and alive throughout our lives — but eventually, these methods end up blocking us from fully engaging with life. What once kept us safe, now keeps us small.
Somatic Experiencing is ideal for the challenges in our lives we can’t seem to affirm our way out of. That’s because trauma and long-standing patterns are held in the physiology, not in the mind. When situations are too overwhelming to integrate, or ‘too much too fast’, our bodies come up with creative ways that allow us to keep going.
Our nervous systems have a well-worn groove of response to activating situations that we can’t talk or will ourselves out of, otherwise we would have long ago. These patterns are not here to haunt us — rather, they have important stories, insights, and messages to deliver to us. They’re like codes that want to be cracked open, understood, integrated, and released.
SE is different from traditional talk therapy.
Rather than a “top-down” approach, meaning cognitive understanding, education, and behavior change, SE uses a bottom-up approach, meaning we work with the body’s innate wisdom to complete stress responses, rewire old neuropathways, and align with the life we truly want to live. We get to the root of what’s running the show, and once that energy is liberated, the change emerges naturally from within.
How it works
Somatic Experiencing gives us a framework to follow the nervous system’s cues, safely and gradually guiding thwarted energy to resolution. The process is gentle – what you’ve gone through in your life is hard enough. the healing process doesn’t have to be.
Each session is unique and deeply alchemical in the sense that we work with whats there, .
We enter a portal of deep listening, curiosity, and follow the body’s story. Investigating & lovingly curious about why we’re in the circumstance that we are, shifting the pieces & collecting their wisdom, and the completion or release that gives way to a new life.
This process facilitates the transformation of overwhelming experience, which has held you frozen/stuck in the past, liberating all that energy into whatever you want in your life.
I work on 1-, 3-, and 6-month immersions, weekly or bi-weekly.
