“These groups focus on connecting participants with their outer and inner resources and strength. We all tend to focus on the problem and often overlook resources already present. The groups are experiential and educational giving women the understanding and tools to establish a sense of control and stability which are fundamental for trauma resolution. The group-processes also assist women to move from isolation to new connections with other women to promote healing.” Claudia Gyr.

 

The program includes five major components.

1. Learning simple mindfulness practices

2. Somatic body centered exercises

3. Education about the biology of trauma

4. Listening skills and group sharing’s

5. Creative arts process to ground experiences and encourage further insights.

 

These processes are supported in a non-judgmental environment respecting each person’s pace and ability. This workshop prepares people to be better resourced to process trauma in therapy but is not a psychotherapy group.  It is important that participants will have an initial interview session at the Women’s Resource Service to assess suitability.

Testimonies:

 “I was afraid and overwhelmed with negative emotions and now I feel positive, empowered and more able to cope”…..

“Claudia uses her gifts and personal experience, understanding to guide you through a very powerful, healing and growing process that was so nurturing and empowering”
