Counselling & Psychotherapy
Obstacles, disturbances and difficulties can seem overwhelming at times and we have no idea why we go through all these ordeals. Stresses in life may manifest itself in various symptoms and issues we experience. Some concerns may present in a form of psycho-somatic symptoms, resulting in chronic body aches, headache, nauseous or other undesirable bodily, mental or behavioural symptoms or even affect the relationships we share with those around us.
Counselling and therapy can help with these wide ranging issues:
Grief, loss and bereavement
Existential/Sense of purpose
Unhealthy habits and addictions
Shocked trauma (i.e: accidents/surgeries/falls/assaults, etc)
Developmental trauma (i.e: abuse, neglect, pre & peri natal, birth, etc)
Chronic symptoms from trauma (i.e: IBS, phobias, migraine, etc)
Stress surrounding physical health (i.e: Diabetes, cancer, dialysis, etc)
Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (TRE®)
Created by Dr. David Berceli, Tension or Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) is a set of exercises which evoke the psoas muscles to release deep tension and stress. TRE is an excellent tool for stress management and to improve self-regulation. Many have benefited from it and have had a greater sense of wellness. You can also learn more about TRE here.
At Soulmatics, we conduct regular group TRE sessions. Click here to find out more and to register for a group session.
Somatic Experiencing® (SE)
Somatic Experiencing is a short-term naturalistic approach to the resolution of post-traumatic stress reactions. It is based upon the ethological observation that animals in the wild utilize innate mechanisms which regulate and neutralize the high levels of arousal associated with defensive behaviours. SE normalizes the symptoms of trauma, which bind this arousal, and offers the steps needed to resolve activation and heal trauma. Most of the time in a SE session, it includes the tracking of sensation with a trained SE practitioner.
You can learn more about SE here.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy
EMDR is commonly known as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy. It is an integrative approach which has been extensively researched in helping individuals overcome trauma and phobias. It has a set of standardised protocols that are made up of various treatment modalities. For more information please refer to EMDRIA (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing International Association)
