A brief note about what’s behind the offerings at Courageous Heart Therapies
At Courageous Heart Therapies our work is not based on the intention to regress and explain but instead on the capacity to touch earlier states and present time simultaneously and let the resources of now influence the body’s memories of then.
There really is distance between the challenges in our past and our life in the present. We can know that intellectually, but our bodies must know it too. At Courageous Heart Therapies we support people to know it from the inside out — to know it so deeply in their bodies that their nervous system has actually reset itself and is no longer cycling repetitively over past experience. When a person’s nervous system has reset significantly they have more capacity in the present. What happened before still happened, but a person now can experience distance from it and have the sense that it is really in the past. Then when life presents them with a situation or challenge that has a flavor of the past they have the capacity to respond in the present to what is actually happening now.
Everyone actually is born with the innate capacity to regulate their own nervous system and support it to recover from difficult experience. However, trauma including birth trauma and difficult life experiences can overwhelm this capacity. At Courageous Heart Therapies we support people to return to their innate knowing and capacities. The primary modalities we use to support the realignment of someone’s nervous system are Somatic Experiencing and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.
All of the therapies offered by Courageous Heart Therapies are body centered and will work with what the body remembers much more than what the mind interprets. The specifics of what happened in the past are not as important as how the body is interpreting them in the present. The goal is to support a person’s nervous system to regulate itself in present time and have a greater capacity in their life now.
