To those who have experienced the impact of trauma


Last Saturday I sat my final exam for my post-graduate diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy. I did well and after 12 years of working towards this goal, I am officially a Gestalt Psychotherapist!

For part of the exam, I had to give a presentation on any topic I wanted. I chose trauma. I feel it’s important that more people are aware of what happens to our bodies during moments of trauma and what impact this has on our psychological, physiological and social lives. I also wanted to explain some of the most important supportive factors that we use in therapy with our traumatised clients.

I asked a friend to record it so that I could share it with you:


With love,
