    Somatic Experiencing™ Practitioner Series with Avdeep Bahra

    Somatic Experiencing™ Practitioner Series with Avdeep Bahra

    SE® Therapist Avdeep Bahra
    HearthMath Certified Coach, Certified Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) Practitioner and Occupational Therapist
    www.innerhealing.ca

    Join myself and my and SE® colleague Avdeep Bahra of Inner Healing near Toronto, ON. You can check out Avdeep’s bio and work at inerhealing.ca [https://www.innerhealing.ca/about-avdeep/]

    This podcast series is a direct practice offering and perspective from certified SE® Practitioners.

    My guest today, Avdeep has a unique perspective that saw her finding the SE® work after suffering a concussion. Avdeep shares her deep resonance with the nervous system physiology having worked previously as an Occupational Therapist in a neuro rehab unit.

    She shares how she appreciated the integration of older traditions and practices, how they became somewhat packaged and teachable with SE® and it help fill a gap that as missing for her on her healing journey post-concussion. She has training and experience in tai chi eg expansion /contraction, natural rhythms of nature and is completing a Tao of Trauma course too ( 5 Element Chinese Medicine and SE® touch).

    She speaks of presence and connectedness as benefits to the teachings of Somatic Experiencing™. Avdeep connected with a hashtag she created prior to learning SE® ~ #fromlonlinesstoconnection. The messaging behind this hashtag now vibrates more for her than ever before; an impulse in her that there is something more finally arose!

    Avdeep has created and runs virtual healing groups using Somatic Experiencing™ ! She is one of the only individuals I have talked to to date that does this. I think group work is incredibly powerful and I enjoyed hearing about this group in our podcast today.

    My colleagues words enlighten me as a mental health clinician. They help me to further understand the limitations just one kind of training lens, in my case mental health, how this can indirectly and unintentionally limit the scope and depth of trauma healing work. This is why I created this series.

    I believe trauma work is expansive, it is complicated. Embracing the togetherness that is knowledge, information and experience is enriching and healing. As a body of helping professionals we can not, and should not, do this work in isolation.

    Join us for a conversation that enlightens others on the clinical work that is SE® whether you are curious about starting with a practitioner for your own personal journey or if you are a professional curious about what all this hype is about, this trauma modality known as Somatic Experiencing™ [https://traumahealing.org/se-101/]

    Somatic Experiencing™ Practitioner Series with Jane Gotch

    Somatic Experiencing™ Practitioner Series with Jane Gotch

    SE® Therapist Jane Gotch

    Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Master Teacher and Choreographer

    www.resilientbodygyrotonic.com

    Join myself and my and SE® colleague Jane Gotch of Resilient Body Gyrotonic in Toronto, ON. You can check out Jane’s bio and work at resilientbodygyrotonic.com.

    This podcast series is a direct practice offering and perspective from certified SE® Practitioners.

    My guest today, Jane Gotch has both personal and professional experience as a movement specialist and dancer. Jane offers an aspiring perspective to the depths of Somatic Experiencing™ work through movement and dance. This offering allows you, the listener, to understand what we think and experience as somatic work practice.

    My colleagues words enlighten me as a mental health clinician. They help me to further understand the limitations just one kind of training lens, in my case mental health, how this can indirectly and unintentionally limit the scope and depth of trauma healing work. This is why I created this series.

    I believe trauma work is expansive, it is complicated. Embracing the togetherness that is knowledge, information and experience is enriching and healing. As a body of helping professionals we can not, and should not, do this work in isolation.

    This episode shares some fun and informative details with Jane who uses her body as a tool for deep exploration in movement. For her, this intuitive viewpoint creates an idea of how one can build awareness through movement, what it means to “train into your nervous system” as Jane says. It creates “harmonious participation”.

    Join us for a conversation that enlightens others on the clinical work that is SE® whether you are curious about starting with a practitioner for your own personal journey or if you are a professional curious about what all this hype is about, this trauma modality known as Somatic Experiencing™ [https://traumahealing.org/se-101/]

    This podcast episode is a front line direct practice offering and perspective from the first-hand experience of certified SE® Practitioners.

    This episode shares some fun and informative details with Candy around mental health and the integration of the trauma modality known as Somatic Experiencing™ [https://traumahealing.org/se-101/]

    We discuss SE® training and how it changes one personally and professionally in a way to enlighten those who may be interested in seeking body-based healing therapy be it professionally or personally.

    Join us for a conversation that enlightens others on the clinical work that is Somatic Experiencing™

    Candy talks about how adults have lost the capacity for play and are often led by fear. She discusses in this episode, how play essentially is the way to experience joy and be in the here and now. This assists us to be more relational, reasonable and open. Candy shares how SE® makes going to work as a therapist joyful and provides hope by helping clients connect to their body and brain, taking away the shame of their mental health issues. SE® is a human experience really feeling the nervous system, slowly, while learning to sit with the uncomfortable by focussing and imagining play. There are misconceptions from individuals who have not experienced SE®, but it taps into something that creates a new experience which alleviates the client.
