From a one-off incident or accident to longer periods of difficulty in life, traumatic events and overwhelming stress can leave their effects on both body and mind.
About Mark Lewis Trauma Therapy
I am an experienced mental health professional and Somatic Experiencing practitioner with a long career in NHS mental health services. I have specialised in understanding trauma and helping people recover from the effects of trauma for over fifteen years.
I see trauma treatment as requiring a broad set of skills, both somatic (body focused) and psychological. Hence I bring my training in the Somatic Experiencing trauma therapy approach and combine this with Psychodynamic skills and theory.
Additionally, I include elements from the Cognitive Behavioural tradition which includes a clearly structured approach to emotion regulation and mindfulness.
I seek to make trauma treatment flexible and accessible. I offer one to one sessions, supervision and bespoke workshops both in person and online. I provide a free 20 minute introductory consultation.
