Trauma Healing

Somatic Experiencing (SE™) is a form of healing designed to relieve and resolve the symptoms of post-traumatic stress injury and other mental, physical, and spiritual trauma-related health problems by focusing on the client’s real and perceived body sensations (or somatic experiences). The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is essential to transforming dis-ease and the wounds of emotional trauma by working with the nervous system (flight, fight, or freeze response). The beautiful thing about SE is that it does not require the traumatized person to re-tell or re-live the traumatic event. Although it may be helpful to talk about past events or symptoms, the primary goal is to allow the body the opportunity to come into alignment with your personal truth as it stands in this moment. You do not need to tell your story or “relive” the traumatic event unless there is a compelling therapeutic need in the moment. Instead, Dianne will work with patterns in the body (nervous system), mind (thoughts), and emotions to begin healing. Dianne provides you with an embodied awareness to help you reduce traumatic symptoms and navigate challenging situations and transitions with greater ease and clarity. By working with your brain, nervous system, along with your emotional and mental processes, you can truly change your life.

Life Coaching

What is life coaching? Life coaching is a process to uncover the unique gifts found in your life purpose. We work together to awaken and challenge the status quo of your existence and harness the natural expansion of your life to achieve your dreams and goals. Life coaching delivers profound results in easy and noticeable ways:

  • Increased well-being (emotional, mental, physical, spiritual)
  • A deeper understanding of your life and life choices
  • Greater clarity and ability to take appropriate action
  • Stress reduction
  • More gratitude and acceptance for "what is"

Coaching sessions are held either in person, over the phone, or via Skype. The sessions last 1 hour. If you are ready to take that next logical step towards a life more fully lived, reach out to Dianne.
