“Be patient and tough; one day this pain will be useful to you.” – Ovid
Life as we know it, is changing right before our eyes – and we can learn to practice new ways of being with our stress response, nervous system, and the emotions that rise to the surface during this time.
In a concerted effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer has issued a directive for all non-essential and elective healthcare services to be suspended, so for the time being, I am moving my Integrative Somatic Deep Healing Therapy Practice online. We do our sessions using a free. downloadable platform, called Zoom.
During stressful times, it can be very important to work through stress patterns – feelings of fight, flight, freeze or flee, held in your nervous system. Somatic Trauma Work helps to release long-held chronic stress, anger, frustration, anxiety and pain that may be triggered during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Release long-held feelings of threat and hypervigilance from your nervous system with online sessions – available at this time – and always.
We all have an opportunity to go within and honour what needs to be nourished, tended to and held with tenderness within us right now.
When that happens, we do whatever we can to get away from the trigger. It’s painful to live in a body that’s triggered.
There are some important things to learn that will help ease our bodies, calm our minds, and gently allow our hearts to open.
Many people find relief inside when their inner world gets clear. People even say they feel more real, more connected to themselves and others.
This new way is available now.
Get in touch – and let’s talk about your experience now and how I can support you – and I will answer any questions you may have about working together.
with love from my heart, Kim xoxoxo

Whole Body Health & Well-Being from the Inside Out.
Deep healing at the level of the nervous system enables you to explore and expand your inner landscape where self – confidence and inner agency reside. When you heal your nervous system, you can more readily access deeper ways of knowing and being that include intuition, imagination, sensuality, and the subtle body of emotions.

What to Expect During a Session
For true emotional and physical healing, I know that we can’t leave our body and how it feels and responds, out of the process. Each person needs something very specific in their healing journey, which is why it is so important to have a customized approach with sessions that are specifically tailored for you – a combination of emotionally-focused psychotherapy and body-focused Co-Regulating Touch work for trauma.
For those who would like to focus on a body-focused, somatic approach, we begin by talking about your background, symptoms and history. We do this online and or in-person by sitting in chairs across from each other or you lie on your back on a table. When you are sitting in a chair, we can do some talk therapy, and you may also be asked if you are open to closing your eyes and noticing your feelings, emotions and body sensations that are happening for you in each moment.
For those who would like to do Co-Regulating Touch Bodywork – sessions consist of lying on a table with eyes closed – and I offer touch on several areas of the body: the head, stress organs, the belly, and joints in the body. Sessions are done fully clothed.
Each session is one-hour, unless we are doing an extended session – and is unique depending on what you are experiencing on that day and would like to focus on during a session – we want to tune in and understand what’s really going on in your body – beyond pathology and diagnoses – to allow your body to move into a flow state, rather than to remain stuck in a stress response state – during the session and in the hours and days afterwards.
