I have wanted to experience somatic therapy for a while, so when I saw Jess’s flyer for “Healing childhood trauma” I just jumped right in and booked myself in. Since then I have done her ancestral healing workshop as well as some private sessions and the Transforming Trauma Retreat.
I originally wanted to pursue this in compliment to the other forms of clinical therapy that I have been doing that were very much centred in the head rather than the heart. I have been absolutely floored by the revelations and insights into myself, my family members and events of the past that have come out of each session. They have been insights that I think I may not have drawn out in psychological talk therapy without many more years.
All these modalities combined have provided me with the equipment to significantly shift the weight of a lifetime of complex trauma from my shoulders. I deeply thank Jess for her ability to hold space, nurture and guide me through the work that I needed to do with her to begin to free myself from the pain, darkness and deep emotional burdens that have deprived me of levity and connection with others.
