Shauna’s work is life changing.
I’m still working through the guilt/shame, but it’s noticeably different since my first session. It’s almost like being able to do something I’ve always longed to do, and asking for what I actually want, has helped me work through some of that icky feeling that is associated with sex. It’s very freeing and not something I anticipated so quickly after the first session. I never imagined this kind of work would produce results like this. It’s incredible.”
I have been working with Shauna on a weekly basis for the past year and a half. She has been working with me on issues regarding my trauma and sexuality. She is a delight to work with, she is so warm and open-minded and accepting and always totally present. She has been incredibly supportive in helping me work through a lot of my shame around my sexuality and has taught me numerous techniques to help me stay present as my trauma memories surface. She is a joy to work with and I believe the work we’re doing is life-changing. I know that I feel much more connected to my body and more in touch with and positive about my sensuality and sexuality and my true self. I highly recommend Shauna if you’re in need of a caring, safe and supportive Somatic Sex Educator.
Shauna is a delight to work with. She provides a warm empathic presence, and gave me lots of clear, useful information and easily navigated working with all of the complexities of my health and personal-growth needs. She’s super supportive and tailored our sessions exactly to my needs, paying close attention to what worked best for me. I went to her for TRE and in addition got some very helpful counsel about my life path in the next year, which is allowing me to head in a much better direction than I was before. I highly recommend her for any level of care and support you need!
Shauna is a pleasure to work with. Her style is very much inviting and not intimidating. At first, I was nervous coming to a sexological bodyworker as I thought I had to partake in sensual touch, but she assured me that all touch would be completely consensual and that our work did not have to include sensual touch.Because I was molested in junior high, I was not confident in my sexuality. After 6 sessions, I can say that I am confident in myself and have discovered many new aspects of my sexuality and needs.”
TRE® feels like my body is laughing - from tiny giggles to big-belly laughs, and all variations in between!
Shauna is amazing. Her work helped me reclaim my power after several traumatic experiences. After one particular session, I found myself walking down the street and was amazed to realize just how much more in possession of my body I was. She is incredibly intuitive and working with her has opened my eyes to what consent looks like and how to articulate what I need and want at all times and in all situations. Shauna is a joy to be around and a joy to guide you through such deep, transformative work.
Shauna is a gifted facilitator. During our TRE sessions I felt totally supported by her and overcame my reservations about the process. I was very interested to learn about TRE, and Shauna made that easy and at times fun. Her ability to make me comfortable accelerated my learning and turned the process into a wonderfully enjoyable experience. Today TRE is an important part of my life, for which I am grateful. I highly recommend Shauna as your guide for TRE.
Before Shauna, I saw therapy as a place to talk about my emotions, to analyse and understand what was wrong and needed to be fixed. With Shauna, I have learnt how to actually feel my feelings, to trust and listen to my body, to begin to fully embody my being. Shauna is a teacher, a guide, a friend, a witness; she holds a space where all is welcome, where bit by bit, you can begin to know deeply for yourself that this, too, belongs.
I met with Shauna four times; each time I was guided clearly, patiently and gently through the steps of TRE. After the first session, I felt, and continue to experience a reduction in restlessness and anxiety, and my sleep is more restorative. Both my mindfulness and meditation practices seem to have been enhanced as well. Thank you Shauna.
You must really be messing with my wiring if I felt pleasure taking out the trash!
[Practicing TRE] has been like adding a new team member to support me in my current caregiver role…I have not felt this good on a neurological level since my 20’s when I was taking dance and movement classes in NYC eight hours a day.”
