Registered Counsellor

Roslyn Robertson

Languages Spoken:

I am a former registered nurse and midwife . Caring for and about the physical and mental health of others has been my life's work. I transitioned into mental health, counselling and massage therapy and I believe I have the tools, compassion and, importantly, the lived experience necessary to help people to navigate their way through trauma, anxiety and depression brought on by the stresses of life.My specialist area of practice is in nervous system regulation which is a science based way of healing the effects of trauma on the body and mind. What is Somatic Psychotherapy?Somatic(body) psycho (mind) therapy is a body orientated approach to the healing of trauma related disorders which disrupt a persons ability to be in the "here and now". Almost everyone has experienced trauma . Whether due to shock, accumulated stress, medical trauma or early developmental trauma. We know that trauma takes a huge toll on our physical, emotional and psychological health, seriously impairing a persons ability to function with resilience and ease. Trauma is NOT just in the event , the toxic effects stay in the body and may present as anxiety, depression, autoimmune disease or simply a general lack of vitality. Both body and mind must work together in order to release trauma stored in the body at a cellular level . Five keys to nervous system healing…. • Education-understanding how the nervous system works . • Connection- to family, friends and or community is vital. • Understanding the physiology of stress, what it is and how it affects the body if left unresolved. • Learning how to allow and "feel" discomforts and fears, in the body rather than suppressing them . •Building the capacity to regulate the nervous system and return to a state of "flow" or homeostasis which is the optimal state of being. How can I help you?I offer a combination of education ,neurosensory exercises, solution focused talk therapy and massage, all of which are aimed at bringing the dysregulated nervous system back into a state of flow ie. regulation, in order that clients are able to live their best lives.
