1:1 Somatic Healing Sessions 


*Online via Zoom*

Healing that starts in the body

Somatic healing is healing that starts in the body. It is about slowing down and tuning in; to your body and what it is holding. To your inner world, to your needs and your longings, to your intuition and your inner knowing. To a deep sense of belonging that may feel foreign to you at first because of all that your body remembers.

Approaching your healing in a “body first” way can help you deepen your relationship with yourself and help you better understand your patterns and challenges in life. It is about practicing relating gently to yourself and gradually learning to support yourself at every step along the way. The somatic approach can help you shift out of self-judgement and self-doubt and into grounded, genuine self-love and self-support, in a lasting and sustainable way. 

I see somatics as a practice of learning to speak the language of the body; learning to understand what your body is holding and trying to express, learning to listen deeply to your body’s wisdom, needs, and boundaries, learning to build capacity in your body and nervous system, so that you can tap into and stay with discomfort and overwhelm rather than avoiding or suppressing it or trying to run away from it. 

Somatic practices are practices of connecting and reconnecting, of relating, and of creating safety, all rooted in the body.  

Through guided somatic practices and inquiry I support you in connecting deeper with yourself to help you:

  • learn to feel safe in your body after trauma 
  • stay present with yourself, your body, your emotions, and with others in relationship
  • build genuine and grounded self-trust and self-love
  • learn to navigate close relationships from a place of self-trust, felt knowing, and discernment
  • heal inner wounds from childhood trauma (such as trust/mistrust, abandonment and self-abandonment, unworthiness, fear, shame)
  • start a gentle conversation with your inner children (or deepen it)
  • learn to be with anger, sadness, grief, anxiety, overwhelm, joy, hope – without letting these emotions take over and overwhelm you and/or drive your actions 


We work slowly, gently, and completely at your pace, respecting your needs and boundaries. 

 

What does a session look like? 

As a certified trauma-informed somatic healing practitioner I guide and support you in connecting deeper with yourself, your body, and your inner world. Through a gentle conversation with the body we tap into the sensations, emotions, energies and stories that your body is holding. We meet them with compassion, non-judgement and curiosity. 

Throughout the session I gently guide you to check in with what is present in your body around the topic that we are exploring. You practice navigating sensations and emotions in your body and learn to gradually create safety in your body and inner world and expand your capacity for staying grounded in the body and being with challenging or overwhelming sensations and emotions without freezing up, shutting down or wanting to disconnect from yourself.  

Through gentle somatic inquiry I help you to slowly create safe and consent-based space in your body and your inner world. From there you can explore reconnecting with all parts of yourself in a supportive way, so you can build a healthy and self-supportive relationship with yourself and learn to understand, heal and gradually shift fear, shame and limiting beliefs that might keep you stuck.

Some of the tools in my healing toolbox are somatic practices, somatic inner child healing, gentle guided movement, embodiment, a strong embodied intuition, and gently holding space for what is present in the body, in a trauma-informed way. My somatic healing work is rooted in my 25 years of experience as a dance and movement teacher, my life-long curiousity around movement, embodiment, and energy work, as well as in my training as a somatic practitioner. 

I support and guide you through the whole process.

The sessions are online via Zoom. 

These sessions might be for you, if you are longing to transform challenges such as:

* Feeling safe enough to be your authentic Self 
including getting comfortable opening up to having relationships that are more honest, without the overwhelming fear that no one will accept you once they see who you truly are 

* Reconnecting with yourself, your body, your emotions, and your inner world 

Getting unstuck (in your relationship, in your career or creative path, in your life journey) 

* Healing and transforming overwhelm, anxiety, shame, and self-judgement 

* Navigating relationships from felt knowing and embodied self-trust and not only from your analytical mind (including practicing embodied decision-making, like when to say yes/no in your relationship, when to lean in/out, when to set a boundary/soften)

* Healing old dysfunctional patterns that are rooted in family trauma 

* Slowing down to create more joy and inner peace and aliveness

* Moving from self-abandonment to self-support

 

We can work together for a longer or shorter period of time, and we can tailor the sessions to your needs. I will guide you gently through the sessions.

Somatic healing happens slowly because it goes deep. The body needs time to process and rewire. That is why I ask you to commit to a minimum of 6 sessions. To allow yourself, your body and your inner world the time, space and slowness to connect deeply in this process and allow for healing to happen.

Format:
 

A session is 75 minutes long. The sessions are online via Zoom.  

In addition to our sessions together you have access to support via voice notes (in the Signal app) between sessions if questions arise, or there is something in your healing journey you want my thoughts on. 

What do I need for the session?
Make sure that you have a stable internet connection and a little space to move in front of your computer.

Headphones or earphones are very helpful for us both, so we both have good sound quality (if you have them, wireless headphones or earphones are very helpful for us both, as they give you freedom to move away from the screen, if needed, while still providing good sound quality for us both). 

Make sure that you are alone in the room and have privacy for the lenght of the session.

I am here to guide you gently on the next steps of your healing journey. I will witness you and co-create each step with you.

I do not have all the answers. You do. I am here to walk alongside you and hold gentle space for you to remember yourself back to them.


Warmly,

I have absolute confidence in Lise as a somatic healing practitioner and believe that anyone who is seeking further healing and resourcing through movement would benefit from working with her. 

  – Jessamyn Turgesen 

Thank you for holding gentle, thoughtful, kind, safe space so well for others to connect with their inner selves in a meaningful way.

 

– Natasha D.

Lise is one of the gentlest, most compassionate, truth-telling guides for connecting with your full self that I have met. I highly recommend anything she offers.

– Amanda

The somatic healing session that Lise led me through was intense and powerful. Intense partly because thanks to Lise’s gentle and kind companionship my body allowed me to go towards challenging sensations. Powerful because it led me towards more clarity and greater commitment to both self-compassion and self-challenge. Also because it felt like an opening, a potential portal, and I’m interested in coming back to working with Lise in the future.

– Ivona

I am amazed at how deep this work is.

– P. Smith

Working with Lise is transformative! With gentle suggestion and masterful direction, Lise guides the participant to move through their body in a new way.

In our session, she helped me connect with my body and tap into the message it’s been holding for me. We moved emotions through my body in a way I’ve never explored before; using colors and shapes, moving the sensation of my feelings from my chest to my throat, loosening the areas of tightness through gentle movement, from sitting to standing, moving my limbs as needed, letting my body guide the flow.

Lise held the container as I let the feelings move through me, releasing tension, and allowing them to show up however they needed. I finished the session feeling more tapped into myself, my body feeling calmer, and feeling closer to my body in general.

 

– Kate Youdell

I’ve been in two workshops with Lise and each time I’m taken aback at how deep she leads us and how loved and supported I feel. I particularly respond to her prompt to slow down or move slower. When she offers this I realize my mind may be starting to race or I’m trying to hurry through and her gentle reminder brings me back to the session.
