Overcoming wounds from childhood trauma can take decades to heal.
Adult clients who grew up in abusive, controlling, neglectful, insensitive, or otherwise traumatizing environments — are often retriggered by memories from their past...
...making simple moments of the day overwhelming with larger-than-life responses due to their inability to regulate emotions.
But there’s good news...
We now have a way to fast-track clients' progress by giving them specific tools and strategies to take back the control of their life.
Using targeted techniques from parts work and focusing, you can go directly to their wounded parts and begin to heal them.
For one day only, you can join Leonie Stewart, M. counselling and Applied Psychotherapy, as she shows you step by step how to blend Parts Work with Somatic Sensing, Focusing and Neuroscience to deepen your therapeutic progress.
Her simplified techniques are easy to implement and make Parts Work approachable for clients and clinicians alike.
You’ll walk away from this one-day workshop with a simple but powerful process to help your clients be with the dysregulated, distressed parts of themselves today... So they have the power to shape their future for the better.
