We are all meant to fly but when some of our life experiences have clipped our wings, we tend to get stressed, anxious, and cautious, less spontaneous and joyful.
PeaceWorks Coaching combines Trauma-sensitive mindfulness coaching and Somatic Experiencing[MOU1] ® to offer a guide, as well as practical tools and practices for you to integrate into your life.

“I had forgotten how much light there is in the world, till you gave it back to me”
- Ursula K. Le Guin
With years of teaching and coaching teens, young adults, and their families, I have come to believe that the greatest gift we can give our children as parents and teachers is our own healing. The more whole we can be, the more we can be present to the children of any age entrusted to our care.

WHAT IS SOMATIC EXPERIENCING®?
The Somatic Experiencing® method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders.
It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE™ approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.
THE SOMATIC EXPERIENCING® APPROACH
...offers a framework to assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states.
The Somatic Experiencing® approach facilitates the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body, thus addressing the root cause of trauma symptoms. This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.
Trauma may begin as acute stress from a perceived life-threat or as the end product of cumulative stress. Both types of stress can seriously impair a person’s ability to function with resilience and ease. Trauma may result from a wide variety of stressors such as accidents, invasive medical procedures, sexual or physical assault, emotional abuse, neglect, war, natural disasters, loss, birth trauma, or the corrosive stressors of ongoing fear and conflict.
