Holistic Psychotherapy by Santa offers a, “Somatic Experiencing” Psychotherapy Group for survivors of trauma.
Traumatic experiences can leave us feeling overwhelmed and disoriented. Whether the event happened years ago or just the other day, our body, mind and spirit can remember and at times, be triggered by past experiences. We may experience feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. We might feel lonely and disconnected from others. It may seem like everyone and everything has moved on while we are still hoping and waiting for the emotions from the trauma to pass.
When we have unhealed trauma, engaging in everyday events might be challenging. We may be compelled to isolate which can exacerbate the loneliness and increase the symptoms of trauma which include feelings of loneliness, anxiety, depression, overwhelming fear and phobias.
In a safe and supportive environment, participants learn to identify common habitual threat responses (internal responses to perceived threats developed due to unhealed trauma). They also access life-changing resources and learn tools to regulate their own nervous system.
If you feel that your traumatic experiences may be adversely affecting interactions with family, mate, friends, co-workers and yourself, this group is for you.
This is an ongoing group. A six-month commitment is required for each member. Members are required to schedule quarterly individual sessions with a therapist. Intimacy develops among members followed by greater vulnerability as members begin to feel known. Long term group experiences support personal growth, opportunities to try new behaviors and change old ones.
You owe it to yourself to explore the healing potential of being part of a Somatic Experiencing Psychotherapy Group for Trauma Survivors. Group members can be engaged as a supplement to individual psychotherapy or as a primary therapeutic intervention.
