I have been a holistic practitioner since 1995 and became a naturopath in 2015.  I have always searched for the root  cause of dis-ease, and how to help the body regain balance and optimal health.   Adding BCST in 2018 opened up my awareness and healing capacities to an even deeper level, assessing more subtle information within the body.  In my training, I learned to look for the innate Health in every person and how to support and strengthen it, instead of trying to fix what’s wrong. I refer to that concept consistently in my practice now.  I really appreciate Joyce’s patience and ability to explain difficult concepts so each student could understand and embody them.

I have always had the belief and trust in the power of the body’s ability to heal itself.   I have always had the inclination to support others’ healing through energy work, but didn’t have the framework, context or words for it.  Massage therapy was a limited doorway in.  My BCST training gave me the understanding and language to clearly empower my clients to truly heal themselves with consistent amazing results.  I also have more confidence and trust in my own skills because of the consistent support from Joyce in the training.  The journey of embodying the principles of BCST thru my personal healing process was priceless and has allowed me to recognize and support the healing of trauma profoundly in others.

I have been a somatic psychotherapist for 10 years and added BCST into my practice in 2017.  I use the principles of BCST every day, personally and in every session in my practice.  Whether I am offering a traditional BCST session or hands-off working with clients to track their own nervous system to process unresolved trauma, my BCST training informs how I share space with clients and trust their unfolding process.  In addition, Joyce as a teacher, created such a safe container for our class to engage our personal healing process which also enriched our learning of this powerful modality.

This foundation training taught me to be more present with myself, which   translates into being more present with my patients,  which allows for greater healing.

 "Within that cerebrospinal fluid there is an invisible element that I refer to as the ‘Breath of Life...  You will have observed  its         potency and also its Intelligence, spelled with a capital 'I'.  It is something that you can depend upon to do the work for you. In       other words, don't try to drive the (body) through any external force. Rely upon the tide."        William Garner Sutherland, D.O.
