My recent article on early trauma has been published on the therapy site, Welldoing.org. https://welldoing.org/article/an-early-death-within-impact-childhood-trauma
There is also ‘Meet the Therapist’ Q & A with me on the site: https://welldoing.org/article/meet-therapist-lindsey-nicholas
Sometimes we need to find a way to come home to ourselves.
Sometimes we need help to come home to the felt sense of who we are in our bodies. This is the path to mental wellness. Body psychotherapy offers a body/mind approach for when you feel ‘talking isn’t doing any good’, or you feel it ‘won’t get to the bottom of your problem’.
How can I help?
I have also made the journey through therapy and training (down various pathways) to find a more compassionate way home to myself. I now offer one-to-one psychotherapy and counselling from my home practice near Ipswich, Suffolk.
I am a trained body psychotherapist, working towards full accreditation with UK Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP). I am also registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and am currently the Chair of the Association of Biodynamic Massage Therapists (ABMT).
My experience of therapy has been that it can make you a more successful person (not merely a success) in your working life and also your home life. It is easy to get lost in our own heads and caught up in who we think we ought to be. We are born in a body and it's crucial that we feel comfortable in our own skin.
My skills as a therapist, I feel, stem from an ability to ‘get under the skin’ of another person. By that I mean to contact and work with what you might be struggling with but are just not able to find words for. This can be crucial for many people who feel there is ‘something wrong’ or that there are feelings locked away, but that somehow this suffering will never be met by another person. I have profound empathy for such a predicament.
I work with people who have experienced early trauma, or have struggled to find ‘their place in the world’. I work with issues around touch and boundaries, and with those who find sustaining contacting sexual relationships with others difficult.
I also really enjoy working with people who feel they are not in contact with the ‘felt sense of themselves’ in their bodies as much as they would like to be.
