Somatic Experiencing

Trauma Recovery

Personalised 1:1 Sessions

What is Somatic Experiencing?

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is, simply put, a bio-physiological approach to healing trauma.

SE addresses our primary nervous system functioning. It resolves stuck symptoms of past adverse events that remain in non-cognitive regions of the brain, such as; relational, developmental or shock trauma.

A somatic approach allows us to be more aware and settled in the felt-sense of our physical restrictions and emotional contractions.

Through moment-to-moment awareness of sensations in your body, SE aims to gently re-establish the natural flow of your life energy, supporting the safe release of symptoms and energy from the nervous system. In SE sessions, we release the past experiences of trauma, and restore your body, heart and mind into a relaxed wholeness.

I offer SE sessions, specialising in:

Complex and Developmental Trauma
Attachment Trauma
Child Sexual Abuse
Perinatal Trauma
Chronic Pain and Fatigue & Fibromylgia
Women’s Reproductive Health issues such as invasive medical procedures, operations, miscarriages, stillbirths, terminations and birth trauma.
Depression & anxiety
Sexual Exploitation and Slavery
Integration after spiritual crisis, emergency or experience.
“I’ve had different kinds of therapy throughout the years but my time with Atira was a true breakthrough which in turn made me feel victorious. I was able to draw back into myself much personal power i feel I lost over the years by either giving that personal power away or having it taken away from me. This gave me a renewed sense of inner strength that I now carry  in my life going forward.”

– Roman Osadca, Canada

“Atira has the unique skills of somatic intuitive focusing to bring out ones most profound vulnerability within a container of absolute safety. With her guidance I was able to uncover the source of my inner conflicts which even I was unaware and lead me to a place of recognition, acceptance and peace. Her natural unforced compassion and empathy were always present underlying every word, action or touch. I am immensely grateful for the insight and sense of completeness I gained as result of working with her.”

– Howard Sonenklar, Professor of Movement and Theatre, Portugal

Sessions with Me

I am available in person or online for private therapy sessions, feminine leadership coaching, and clinical and supervision consultations. Sessions are usually an hour long, or 90 mins upon request.

As a licensed art therapist, somatically-based trauma practitioner, coach, meditation & yoga teacher, I customise an integrative approach depending on personal need, that includes a solid training in the psychological, social/cross- cultural, emotional, physiological, religious and developmental issues. with 15 years of trauma therapy experience in the field, my expertise is in sexual abuse recovery, peri-natal trauma, as well as in attachment and developmental trauma.

“Atira is a very gifted Somatic Experiencing (SE) Therapist. I have found Atira’s SE sessions life changing. Even though I’ve  had years of therapy, the body-focused nature of SE was able to get past defenses that talk therapy did not. Also, it is not necessary to have experienced serious trauma to benefit from SE. My own  trauma was more  about normal life challenges and I am significantly more clear, strong and eager for life after working with Atira.

– Suzanne Simmons, IT Manager, Texas, USA.

“Atira’s knowledge and experiencing in trauma-informed fields is impressive on it’s own. To sit in her therapeutic presence as she guides me on the journey of internal exploration, discovery and the resolution of trauma is a gift of ultimate safety, sincerity and assurance.

– Faegann Harlow, Body Worker, San Diego, USA.
