Workshop Details 

In this 2-workshop you’ll learn a range of safe embodiment practices to bring your client’s body back into the window of tolerance to support connection, grounding and relationship. Trauma disconnects us from our body, it severs the link between mind and body, body and soul. It prevents us from being in the flow of life, being curious and being mindful. You’ll will learn simple exercises that you can share with your clients for self soothing and regulation.

This workshop will take you on a journey through vagus nerve where Kate will share with you a range of somatic resources that are safe and simple to do that will regulate the nervous system, deescalate arousal and sooth emotions. These somatic exercises support phase 1 of trauma treatment which focuses on safety and stabilisation.

You’ll also learn how psychological and emotional patterns become ingrained in the body, shaping the body in such a way that perpetuates these patterns. You’ll learn simple and accessible tools to support integration and release.

Most of these exercises are carried out seated but with some you’ll be invited to stand (and variations will be given for those you prefer or need to sit)
