Are you tired of going round and round talking about the same issues with your clients? Or meeting the same blocks and rigidity in their body after it looked like it had shifted last session?
Wouldn't it be great to have a way to resolve these patterns via an ancient and intelligent system inbuilt into every one of your clients?
And in a way that increases mindfulness, self awareness and presence in them as well? (Therefore improves their quality of life!)
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM and this mini Somatic Therapy Training <<
In this training you'll learn:
An overview of the physiology/nervous system, and how the brain lays down repetitive patterns, behaviours and feelings states that can be worked with via the map of the nervous system,
The nervous systems role in physical and ego survival (and how this links with internal emotional, mental and spiritual layers and external behaviours of a person)
Signs and signals the body, behaviour and language give you about where a client is in their fight/flight/freeze responses around an issue,
Tools to work with and resolve different nervous system states,
Tools for helping your clients move into embodied empowerment
Tools for settling your own nervous system in your own life or when hearing distressing content from a client.
Im also excited to tailor this workshop to the needs of the participants.. and you'll get a chance to tell me what you'd love to learn before we meet.
WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?
Counsellors or therapists in training wanting to have a deeper understanding of the role of the body,
Psychologists and psychotherapists
Anybody wanting to have a deeper understanding of how the instinctual brain impacts their clients lives.
If that's you...
Do you want to learn how to use your clients' body intelligence to heal and resolve stuck-ness, trauma, depression or anxiety?
Want to support them into more natural thriving based on their ancient biology and yours?
Have you always been fascinated by somatic approaches to the body and to therapy?
This training will be focussed on giving you some tangible skills you can take into your practice or your life. It is not intended as a self-development series.

WHO RUNS THIS WORKSHOP?
Hi, Im Amanda and I've been working "somatically" for 16+ years.. I started out as a bodyworker and moved to somatic therapy and coaching when I realised I really wanted to be able work with the patterns in the mind and emotions that were creating the tension or collapse I was meeting on my massage table.
I am Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, Lead Essence Coach with the Essence School (amongst many other things!) and am deeply in love with my work. I find working somatically is very soulful.. the body is a place of such wisdom, depth and intelligence.
I look forward to sharing what I know with you.
Please note, this is not a substitute for training with Somatic Experiencing (SE) Australia and I am not certified to give trainings in SE methods.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS TRAINING?
Im a strong advocate for INTEGRATION of what we learn and experience.. so this workshop is a mini-series, with Pre-Workshop videos, the 4 hour workshop itself and a follow up Q+A call 2 weeks later (after you've had a chance to practice the skills in the world/your session room) to integrate what you've learnt.
These videos will be sent to you give you an outline of the nervous system role and structure and speak to what to watch out for when you're working with Groups and with someone with a less stable nervous system.
You'll also get a slide show/video on "Why It's Important To Pay Attention to Your Body when Making Changes" (that you can share with your clients) to get them on board with listening to their body!

"I loved cementing and growing my love for the wisdom of the body. Finding new ways to listen, and understanding how to guide someone gently though trauma and unreleased emotion, so that the body can release naturally and we can begin to befriend the whole spectrum of feelings" - Jody
