I totally respect what you have said about a lot of therapy in the past.
I have, myself, been in the same situation and felt counselling was only getting me so far and often causing more distress and
Overwhelm because I did not have the language to express and therefore change how I felt sexually and how I related with my body.
This was over 20 years ago when therapy of the mind was the common and available way.
This is not mind and talk therapy.
It is a somatic therapy of our nervous system and the body’s held trauma so the body can let go of the protective and survival mode of freeze. And the destructive habitual patterning to reinforce and feed how the abuse felt.
Talking therapy only gets us so far in our putting our thoughts in order.
But we are born “feeling creatures”‘and it is our unexpressed and confused feelings of the past trapped in our cellular memory that needs to be met, held and released.
To relearn how we regulate ourselves and our emotions is work of the body. We seek and need new felt experiences of touch, body, intimacy, movement, voice, boundaries, relationships, love and sex.
