How can my work in the area of healing Trauma help my students? Everybody has experienced trauma. Anything from a sudden fall, to a difficult breakup can impede our progress in life. Trauma is caused when the fight or flight response in our nervous system becomes overwhelmed and stays frozen in the body. At times, the gentle hands-on work that I do, or even singing, can unlock strong feelings. When this arises, I have the tools to support my student’s healing process, and I have the training to help them resolve issues that may arise.
Students sometimes arrive at their lessons feeling triggered, or overwhelmed by an event, a feeling or injury. I help students to feel more present, grounded and safe allowing our work to be productive. I take my cue from my student as to the direction they wish to take in our work together. My role is to support, and help to organize and clarify my student's experience. If appropriate, I will always refer to a medical professional or psychotherapist.
