Over the past 40 years Karen has worked with survivors of trauma in a variety of roles. Initially, she was invited to speak at schools and deliver workshops on resilience to community groups because of the response to her plays and short stories about women, children, and trauma. This culminated in an invitation to create and teach a journal writing course for sole parents who were struggling with the effects of physical and sexual abuse. Gradually this developed into a small practice working individually with people who had experienced all kinds of trauma. Karen enhanced this work by incorporating movement and vocal techniques from her theatre practice to access trauma trapped in the body. As a result of this work, she began a PhD in Trauma Studies and Theatre.
The latest trauma research reveals that trauma is stored in the body, not the event, so therapies that rely on a conscious approach, such as talk therapy, can help us gain perspective on our experience but they can’t clear the felt sense of burden that lives in the body. While our conscious minds can try and steer us away from situations and people, we know are harmful only the psycho-sensory trauma therapies that target trauma where it’s stored in the body can clear the heaviness and felt sense of burden that lives in the body. In order to heal preverbal trauma, only the psycho-sensory and electroceuticcal therapies can access and release such trauma.
Karen has researched the new, electroceutical therapies that really work and set aside her PhD in order to train in these therapies. First, she studied EFT, which not only clears the current burden of pain and distress but entirely removes the patterns of traumatic shock that keep us hooked into behaviours, experiences and people that hurt us. After these therapies we just stop gravitating to them. All of this is of is done gently without retraumatizing, leaving us truly free.
