You’re here because you’ve experienced birth trauma.

I’m truly sorry to hear that.  I know how it can pervade every part of your life.

You wonder how you can ever move on from this.

You worry about how you can move past the effects of the trauma, whether it’s sleep disturbances, flashbacks, constant anxiety, moving into flight or fight mode at seemingly unrelated things, jumpiness, emotional outbursts, or other things.

Maybe it’s affecting your relationships or is making you hypervigilant around those you care for.

You worry about getting through the anniversary of the birth trauma.

Do you feel like you’re living a half-life?

After the programme, you will

  • Feel fully witnessed in how you are feeling

  • Learn how to soothe your nervous system; to stop cycling between numbness and flight/fight mode, and let your body rest

  • Gently reconnect with the body (or the parts that feel numb or too painful) and move towards wholeness

  • Have strategies to cope with big, overwhelming emotions

  • Learn how to become grounded and centred again and again, and not at the mercy of the trauma

  • Discover a creative way of being with parts of you that feel difficult and challenging

  • Find a sense of wellbeing without diminishing the enormity of what you have been through

  • See a way forwards.

"Invaluable techniques..."

"I had a series of private online sessions with Tessa as part of my healing process after losing my baby. I always left the sessions feeling calm, relaxed and more balanced.

Tessa taught me some invaluable techniques to regulate my nervous system which I still include in my daily practice.

She made me feel at ease, listening and responding to how each exercise made me feel and I really looked forward to my sessions with her.

I would definitely recommend her expertise to my own yoga clients." RW
