Clients’ relationships with their bodies can be so painful - disconnected, discontented, and even feeling betrayed by their bodies due to appearance, illness, aging, injury, or trauma.
Trapped in a cycle of self-criticism and self-worth struggles the body becomes a place that isn’t safe.
And if they can’t feel safe in their own body, how are they expected to feel safe anywhere? And how are you supposed to get anywhere in therapy?
As a licensed clinical social worker and leader of Body Compassion retreats across the country I’ve helped hundreds of clients overcome their body and self-image issues and truly come to appreciate what makes them, and their bodies, unique.
You’ll get the tools you need to uncover the underlying causes of your clients’ body issues, shift their deep-seated negative beliefs, and show them how to embrace a kinder, more compassionate relationship with their bodies and themselves.
With simple but effective thought and emotional regulation tools from ACT, CBT, mindfulness, positive psychology, and somatic approaches you’ll end this training ready to skillfully guide clients on a journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance and profound healing.
And we won’t only be talking. This training is very experiential, giving you the opportunity to follow me in guided exercises so you can feel the impact they’ll have on your clients firsthand.
Together, we can create a space where individuals can cultivate a healthy relationship with their bodies, flourish in their unique beauty and embrace their inherent value.
