Moving Towards the Light – Saying Yes to Everything as Life Unfolds – Healing Deeply Held Unprocessed Trauma & Defensive Responses That Keep Us Out of Connection – Allowing in Unconditional Love and Care Towards the Body – Feeling Free to Be Fully Yourself.

January 17, 2023

As each day of the new year unfolds, we are slowly, softly moving towards the light of the spring – planting seeds and engaging in renewal.

The body is a doorway. Touch, our very first language, can access the deepest layers of our earliest experience. This is an invitation towards tenderness, healing – a combination of touch, bodywork, somatic healing, movement, mother/father wound healing and a relational process – allowing everything to change about how we feel and show up in the world.

Learn to rest into the gentle nature of presence – reconnecting to ourselves and moving away from chaos and agitation. When we allow ourselves to go slowly and take the space we need to heal our nervous system responses and deeply held toxic stress, we are teaching our bodies to orient to safety. We can transcend inherited family trauma patterns, so that our energy that can flow more freely within our bodies and we can feel more alive, bright, coherent and free.

As we grow and develop, our bodies become adapted to difficulties and begin to use survival strategies and self-protective management responses to survive. Many of us feel chronic feelings of anxiety, depression, panic, an inability to stay present in relationships, chronic pain, stress and a restlessness – draining our feelings of aliveness and vitality. We will teach your body to feel safer – slowly and tenderly – now and always – and create more regulation in your nervous system.

Heal deeply from within from what is limiting you and unlock what is true for you- no matter what’s happening around you.

We are wired to protect ourselves. When our brains perceive a threat in our environment, we automatically go into one of the three stress response modes, freeze, flight or fight. From an evolutionary standpoint, these responses have served us well by allowing us to respond quickly to threats and get ourselves safety. For those living with unresolved trauma, the threat never feels like it has gone away, leaving them “stuck” in a chronic stress response.

I work with clients to help move them out chronic overwhelm and nervous system dysregulation resulting from a traumatic event and/or from early developmental trauma – so they can move back into connection with their bodies, other people, and their own lives. I do this using therapeutic co-regulating touch – a beautiful, natural and highly effective combination of Somatic Experiencing, Kathy Kain’s Touch Skills for Trauma, Stephen Terrell’s Transforming Touch and Somatic Resilience and Regulation, and Aline La Pierre’s Neuroaffective Touch.

The true nature of who we are includes everything with no resistance. It offers a continual deep and open “yes” to everything that appears as life unfolds.

This natural deep acceptance is profoundly healing to the pain of our early trauma patterns. These patterns of fear and suppression develop from disruption in our relationships early on in life—with ourselves and others. Although everyone is doing their best, we just don’t get the unconditional love, presence and care we needed to feel free to be fully ourselves.

What is needed to discover our essential wholeness is ongoing unconditional acceptance of all parts of ourselves. And this is just what is offered by the natural alive aware being of who we are. As we stand here in this openness, we find the loving space to hold these painful residues from the past. As these parts absorb into this love, their tension relaxes, and we come home, more and more, to live in daily life as a vast field of unconditional acceptance.

We’ll enter into a field of love—for ourselves and others. Opening to everything.

Together, we lovingly embrace our humanness as we expand into overflowing appreciation and deep connection with all of life.

Come back home to yourself.

When you come to realize the truth of who you are, trust it, and step into it with purpose & confidence, your whole life heals in magnificent ways. 

You know deep down that your body is the key to deep healing.

I see you. You’ve tried to improve your situation, but you still feel confused, overwhelmed, frustrated.

You want to find peace & joy within you, but doubts and fears keep you from figuring out how to attain it.

Other people’s emotions affect you greatly, and their judgements even more.

You have a good life, but something’s missing. You are hoping for better health, more engaged relationships, more energy, aliveness and passion for your work and life. You know you’re meant to feel better, you know you’re meant for more. And you wonder whether what you feel is truly valid.

It seems there’s some secret everyone else knows about that you haven’t figured out.

You don’t need fixing. You are not broken.
You have everything you need within yourself.

It starts with integrative relational somatic body-focused healing and shedding limiting beliefs & conditioning that you’ve been carrying around from your early life experiences.

The messages from society that made you believe there’s something you need to “fix”.

You’re getting a sense these messages and conditioned ways of thinking aren’t serving you—but rather holding you back from the life you know you’d truly like to experience.

And you’re ready to move them so you can choose a different path for yourself, now, and going forward.

When you do, your relationship with yourself transforms.

With a level of self-compassion & self-trust that changes how you see yourself & everything around you.

You know who you are and what you want, and even more importantly, what you don’t want, and you feel comfortable creating  and communicating healthy boundaries that improve the dynamics of all of your relationships, including with yourself.

As a result, you feel more ease and joy. You feel at peace with yourself in a way you never considered possible.

When this happens, you will see the healing beyond what you’ve been able to experience before; with all the other things you’ve tried: body, health, relationships, and life in general.

And then your external world changes. People show up for you differently, careers feel more fulfilling, and opportunities unfold in ways you never even considered possible.

Here’s what you’ll experience on your journey back to yourself:

Nervous System Healing & Regulation

Before we can do anything else, it’s important to give your nervous system an experience of safety, to provide moments of ease, and improve nervous system flexibility so that you will be able to feel more resilient. This creates a strong foundation for everything else to build on.

Healing Mother & Father Relational Wounding

Discover who you really are on the inside and uncover your true needs and desires. Meet your younger part and find out what you’ve really wanted all along….you might be surprised what you uncover through this supportive, gentle process. Then, through a step-by-step process that involves inner mothering and compassionate listening, beginning to give yourself the things you always wanted, so that you can feel better, from within.

Making Connections Within

Understand the layers of conditioning that have impacted your beliefs, emotions, and behaviours, and how it’s affected all aspects of your life.

Seeing these connections delivers “aha” moments of clarity. Once you see it, you can’t unsee it, and it’s the starting point to creating effective, lasting, meaningful change.

Softening Layers of Conditioning & Healing Inherited Family Trauma

Softening layers of conditioning that have been keeping you stuck and holding you back. Create new perspectives and beliefs. Begin to feel lighter and freer in body, mind, and soul. This is the beginning of your inner awakening and life-changing transformation.

Heal Your Relationship with Yourself

Once you uncondition yourself from external beliefs, this sets the stage for you to develop deep, compassionate love, trust, and acceptance of yourself. You come to realize just how magnificent you truly are, and it changes absolutely everything.

Meet the hidden parts that you may not have fully accepted, and once you understand their benefits, you’ll make peace & befriend with every single aspect of yourself. When you heal your relationship with you, it sets the foundation for everything else in your life to heal, grow, and flourish, including relationships with everyone else.

Reset Your Inner Compass

Explore how you truly want your health, relationships, career, purpose, and entire life to unfold, now, and going forward, now that you are moving out of survival mode. Design your own unique blueprint for life so that you can create the present and future you truly desire and reset your inner compass to what’s true for you. Learn how to decode the language of your inner guidance system so that you trust yourself and your intuition.

Tap into Your Flowing Energy and Aliveness

Magnify your inner potential and purpose and watch your well-being, relationships, career, and entire life evolve in ways you’ve never imagined. Celebrate with excitement how your life is now unfolding. Live your life filled with confidence, inner trust and purpose, and feel fully rooted in your centre with deep resilience and strength.

Heal the long-held relational and somatic patterns held in your body so you can feel calm and more confident, no matter what’s happening around you. Come home to yourself and shed the layers of conditioning that kept you from seeing the magic you have within yourself.

How You’ll Benefit:

Before I started working with Kim, I was feeling lost in life. I also struggled with depression, feared change, and had bouts of anxiety. I desperately wanted to change and improve my life in order to live feeling calm and peaceful.

I was surprised about how much personal growth and healing that happened while working with Kim. The process I went through helped me come home to myself with confidence and compassion for myself.
