Somatic Counselling is a holistic therapy that studies the relationship between the mind and body in regard to psychological past. The theory behind somatic therapy is that trauma symptoms are the effects of instability of the ANS (Autonomic Nervous System). Shama believes to achieve better integration and lasting results we need to bring the elements of body, mind and soul together into the therapy.
Somatic Touch is a powerful psychobiological approach that integrates the therapeutic use of touch and psychotherapy to work with Complex Trauma (C-PTSD). Somatic touch helps individuals with attachment, emotional, and relational developmental deficits and trauma rebuild the connection between their mind and body.
Somatic experiencing is a form of alternative therapy aimed at relieving the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental and physical trauma-related health problems by focusing on the client's perceived body sensations.

Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure. People who use this technique believe tapping the body can create a balance in your energy system and treat pain. According to its developer, Gary Craig, a disruption in energy is the cause of all negative emotions and pain. Though still being researched, EFT tapping has been used to treat people with anxiety and people with PTSD.
Active meditation is a great way to factor some zen time into a busy day. It’s also the ideal way to meditate if you’re the type of person who can’t sit still for too long. Shama uses active meditation to quiet the mind and move the focus down to the heart and the belly. We all have gut feelings about situations and often our gut, also known as our intuition, is correct. Active meditations help tap into those feelings and put less focus on the chatter going on in our brains.
