About Catherine Allen

I have noticed over my career working on people with unresolved physical ailments that may, regardless of treatment, may have an emotional link. Somatics Experiencing (SE) is a form of therapy aimed at relieving and resolving the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental and physical trauma related health problems by focusing on the client's perceived body sensations or somatic experiences.








If you have survived a trauma whether is be a once occurring event or something that has been a lifetime of continuous events, SE is a form of a therapy meant to separate the physical from the emotional in a safe, contained and healthy way. SE helps move a person through the fight, flight, freeze (collapse) response that has begun because of a trauma or the accumulation of chronic stresses. When trauma and stressors become overwhelming, it begins to impair a person's ability to function with resilience and ease. When the body is unable to process and discharge these events, all manner of physical ailments start to impede into one's life varying from headaches, fatique, increased anger, increased sadness, physical pain, difficulty in maintaining relationships or having a sense of well being.








By changing how the body physically reacts to emotional patterns, whether it be conscious or quite often unconscious, the mental and physical body is able to live in a meaningful way. When the emotional patterns are recognized and changed, the physical body finds relief as well.








The goal behind SE is to help you live a more meaningful life by bringing more joy, pleasure and connection into your life, to take you from surviving to thriving. My work is done mainly on the table with gentle hands on touch to help you find relief.
