I have brought together a team of therapists. who each add their own unique touch with an understanding in the importance of meta-awareness being at the core of therapy.
meta-awareness – the ability to observe your thoughts, feelings, sensations and impulses as they are happening. When we have that awareness, then we can choose what we do next.
We are driven to help people heal from trauma, issues from childhood and stress, something Thasja has been helping people do for over 20 years.
Through Thasja's inspiring studies in EMDR and somatic studies with experts such as, Pat Ogden (with her work in somatic therapy), along with Peter Levine, who is a leading expert in trauma healing as well as with one of the leading trauma experts, Bessel van der Kolk (who wrote The Body Keeps the Score), Thasja has been interested in the nervous system and its' regulation. She found answers to many of the issues she was seeing in therapy through Dr. Steve Porges's work with Poly Vagul Theory and Dr. Daniel Siegel's cutting-edge work which reveals the ways in which neural processes are fundamentally shaped by interpersonal relationships throughout life. This led to her studies with Karen Pando-Mars (AEDP therapy trainer). You will find that our associates are versed in the knowledge of some of the top leading experts of the therapy field, check out our team.
