I made the decision to combine my spiritual approach to life with the work I have been undertaking in therapeutic settings for the last twenty years. It feels right, I’m approaching my work as a whole person mixing spirituality with trauma informed practice and understanding.
All you need is love is my philosophy, it is the only answer and it starts with loving ourselves and recognising we are worthy of being loved. How though do we do this if we don’t totally understand who we are, where we’ve come from and what our experiences have taught us. In setting up Resting in the Heart I want to provide a space for recovery and growth, I want to assist people in reaching their full potential and in doing so reach my own.
For many years I have worked with young people damaged from early life experiences, I have managed settings and organisations caring for these young people and am proud of what I have achieved within this field. However what I have come to realise is that there are many people in society who have not had the same support, through blogging and living I have met many trauma survivors and those struggling with circumstances who I believe would benefit from a space to understand themselves and the impact of their experiences better.
Resting in the Heart is for anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of themselves. We are made up of our experiences and to understand them, well at least the impact on body, mind and spirit is to understand ourselves better.
