About Kathleen Tyrrell
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Massage Therapy Practitioner in WA and AZ. Kathleen has been practicing holistic, systemic psychotherapy for over thirty years, and SE for 16 years.
She is a SETI approved provider of personal sessions, individual consultations, and group case consultations for all Beginning through Advanced Levels of the SE training and beyond. Kathleen is also an AAMFT nationally approved supervisor / WA state LMFT approved supervisor.
In addition to her post graduate training in Object Relations Theory (early developmental / attachment,) pre-natal work with Ray Castellino, Kathy Kaine’s "Touch-based Methods for Early Trauma," Peter Levine's Master Classes, (Depression & Aggression and The Eye of the Needle, working with near death states,) and Organic Intelligence Post-Advanced Classes with Steve Hoskinson, assisting at 67 national and international SE trainings, and assisting at six, post advanced, "Touch Trainings for Psychotherapists" with Kathy Kain (Canada and the USA,) have helped Kathleen integrate more deeply into her own body the essence of SE and OI principles.
Kathleen incorporates somatic experience principles in all her counseling and consulting. Each body’s innate intelligence can guide renegotiation of accumulated autonomic nervous system stress, no matter when or how it originated. Personal transformation unfolds over time. As client’s awareness and capacity for being in each present moment with curiosity, compassion and humor increases, his/her felt sense of ease, relaxation and confidence often increase as well.
"We are all of us, all of the time, coming together and falling apart. The point is, we are not rocks.
Who wants to be one anyway, impermeable, unchanging, our history already played out.”
