Course Details

Vicarious trauma, burn out and compassion fatigue are very real occupational hazards for those in the helping professions. This workshop is first and foremost for you but it will also support the work you do with other helpers to identify nervous system responses, somatic over or under responses and psychological responses in the work we do.

Kate Williams

I’m a Breathwork Coach, BACP Accredited counsellor and clinical supervisor with a background in yoga and bodywork. I currently work as a counsellor within the NHS IAPT programme as well as running a busy private practice and I enjoy teaching yoga and breathwork within the community and online. I'm the centre manager for The Bedfordshire Centre for Therapeutic Studies where embodiment practices are integrated into the diploma training. I’m interested in the impact trauma can have on the nervous system, mind and body and I have developed a more trauma-informed & embodied way of working to support others to better inhabit their bodies, self soothe and regulate their feelings and in doing so feel more grounded and connected. Offering breathwork and embodiment practices to my clients supports the 'bottom-up' system to trauma recovery enabling the therapeutic work to take place on a somatic as well as psychological level. This in turn enables clients to experience their body as a resource and mind-body integration can start to take place.
