Webinar: Poly and Me with Kay Reynolds


Poly and Me : How the Polyvagal Theory fitted into my work and my self care

As a Craniosacral Therapist   of thirty years working in private practice, coming across the Polyvagal Theory was another homecoming.

Working as a bodyworker with clients who had Trauma in their backgrounds I often floundered with the concept of ‘ depression ‘ and Anxiety.  My understanding didn’t quite match up with the symptoms and conditions being presented to me. Most of all progress in recovery and change was slow and sometimes re triggering. Hmmmm

I attended a workshop in Edinburgh four years ago on the David Bercelli TRE work ( Trauma Release Exercises ) and was introduced to the work of Dr Stephen Porges and his Polyvagal Theory. The answers for myself and my clients became clear.  Bottom Up Work ( hands on ) as it’s become known worked well as opposed to Top Down ( talking therapy ) . Eureka.

I have since taught clients the polyvagal theory and how to Re-Set , self regulate and self soothe alongside teaching Self Care for Therapists and Social Workers working with Clients in  trauma recovery.

I thoroughly enjoy sharing this amazing Theory most of all because it brings great tools and insight into our realm of ‘ recovery ‘ .
