Our lives serve as a catalyst. Here to shape us, define us, bring us to our essence. We're here for the full range.
It's important to change the stigma we have around crisis. It's not reserved for a few. It is in our unraveling, it pushes us to find something deeper. It's a human initiation we walk through.
Crisis comes when we go through the dark tunnels of the unknown. When all that we knew, loved or relied on falls away. When we can't cope. When we don't know what to do. When we forget who we are or why we are here. When we experience an amount of pain that we don't think is possible to handle. When we have any experience where we are in danger, and fear for ourselves or others. When we can't forgive or accept our past, and it sits over us as a painful shadow. When we panic and can't see the right action to take, and we second guess ourselves in all of it.
There is an awakening potential that follows any crisis. It can be as simple as only really knowing your truth once it's been fully tested and challenged. It can be trusting yourself because you've walked through the parade of doubts already. It can be a deeper empathy to others and clearer healing gifts. It could be increased sensitivity and insight. It can be a deeper connection to your body and health. It can be resilience, courage, strength or conviction. It can be purpose to get out of your own way and do whats truly needed, to stop acting small. It can be widespread healing for your family. It can be a deeper appreciation for the little gestures, like taking a bath or eating chocolate, or wider eyes for the beauty that lives, like the sunrise.
There is a turning point when working with crisis. It's a difficult place, because you have to connect to yourself in it (which is what we most highly avoid), to find your way through.
I offer individual sessions (in person and skype) to support you to navigate this. I focus on resourcing, somatic (body-based) grounding, addressing trauma symptoms, anxiety or depression, emotional regulation, emotional freedom technique (EFT), and processes to focus, to find your release, answers and insight.
In person sessions can include body healing and biofeedback.
For skype sessions and any of our outdoor work, we screen to ensure that what we offer is appropriate for you. If safety is a concern, please note that skype is not appropriate as a first-means of support.
