“Navigating my clients’ hyperarousal and vagal shutdown was emotionally draining. I wished I had more tools to help them regulate their emotions and feel more grounded between sessions.”

Whether our clients are suffering from the effects of complex PTSD, childhood trauma, sexual trauma, birth trauma or trying to heal from a traumatic breakup, their nervous system, cortisol and hormonal levels are highly likely to be off balance and working in survival mode.


Understanding the Challenge: The Role of Online Body-Based Trauma Therapy

Therapists often encounter clients struggling with stress, trauma, and emotional challenges, where traditional therapeutic approaches may fall short. High-stress levels can hinder effective communication and decision-making, creating obstacles in the therapeutic process.

When dealing with traumatized clients, therapists grapple with the complexities of helping clients regulate their emotions and find a sense of calm.

This challenge is particularly evident when clients experience emotional overwhelm, making it difficult for them to articulate their thoughts or engage in traditional talk therapy. Therapists often encounter several challenges when working with clients who are overwhelmed by stress and triggers.


1. Communication Barriers: Clients overwhelmed by stress, triggers, or struggling from the effects of complex PTSD may find it challenging to articulate their thoughts and feelings coherently. Communicating effectively becomes a hurdle, hindering the therapist’s understanding of the client’s experiences.


2. Emotional Dysregulation: Clients may struggle with emotional dysregulation, leading to intense emotional outbursts or emotional shutdowns. Managing these emotional extremes can be difficult for both the client and the therapist.


3. Trust Issues: Clients who have experienced trauma, especially childhood trauma, sexual trauma or relational trauma may find it challenging to trust the therapist, particularly if the therapy is connected to the source of their trauma. Building and maintaining trust becomes a crucial aspect of the therapeutic process.


4. Difficulty in Decision-Making: Stress and triggers can significantly impact a person’s decision-making abilities. Therapists may observe clients making choices that are not in their best interest, posing challenges for effective therapeutic intervention.


5. Navigating Flashbacks and Triggers: Clients may experience flashbacks or trigger responses, especially in the context of abuse, sexual trauma or birth trauma, leading to disruptions in the therapeutic process. Therapists need to help clients navigate these experiences while maintaining a safe therapeutic space.


6. Secondary Trauma for Therapists: Therapists may experience secondary trauma or burnout when dealing with highly stressed or triggered clients. Balancing the emotional impact on the therapist and ensuring self-care becomes crucial.


Recognizing the limitations of conventional therapeutic methods, therapists are now turning to innovative solutions that integrate online body-based types of trauma therapy into their practice.


The Benefits of Different Online Body-Based Trauma Therapies:


Enhanced Emotional Regulation: Clients participating in online body-based therapy programs often experience improved emotional regulation, enabling therapists to facilitate more productive and focused sessions.


Improved Communication: Incorporating somatic therapy, vagal toning, dance therapy, and more can enhance clients’ ability to articulate their thoughts, overcoming communication challenges.


Managing Emotional Responses: Clients equipped with stress reduction exercises are better prepared to manage emotional responses, reducing the likelihood of emotional outbursts and impulsive behavior.


Informed Therapeutic Decision-Making: Integrating trauma-informed care helps clients make more informed decisions, positively influencing the therapeutic strategies developed by therapists.


Self-Care for Therapists: Offering clients access to online body-based therapy programs supports therapists in managing their stress and secondary trauma through a more informed and supportive approach.
