"Trauma is not what happens to us, but what we hold inside us in the absence of an empathetic witness."  Peter Levine

You are not your anxiety

You are not your symptoms

With this in mind, we begin to create a bit of distance between you and the uncomfortable sensations. When you're ready,

I invite you to be open, be curious

 

We become the empathetic witness and allow the sensations space to breathe. Listening, waiting and connecting with it, until it knows it's safe to come home.
