My name is Ise
(spoken ez ɛ)
I work as a trauma informed somatic counsellor and body worker in Glasgow.
I have been trained in and influenced by somatics, swedish massage, reflexology, myofascial release, spontaneous movement and breathwork. I am queer and non binary.
Through my backround in performance and sculpture i came to dance and body expression.When i was ready to uncover and work through my personal history of experiencing sexualised violence, i found support in somatic therapies and practices.
This self-discovery and exploration has been transformative in reconnecting with myself and my healing and has sparked my deeper interest in understanding how trauma affects and disconnects us on a body mind level.
My view on body mind health and sickness is informed by a critical understanding of influences by western bio medicine on how we perceive our bodies experiences.
