“While some people are able to recover from trauma on their own, many are not. The inability to rebound from such events could subject us to PTSD along with a myriad of physical and emotional symptoms.”
Peter Levine (PhD Medical Biophysics & Psychology) “In an Unspoken Voice, How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness” 2010.

Carole believes new approaches, based on recent brain neuroplasticity research now offer excellent treatment protocols for pain and trauma management. Practical approaches by leading physiotherapists such as Prof Lorimer Moseley and David Butler (Neuro Orthopaedic Institute) excite Carole and she is delighted to be working in this area.
Associative Awareness Technique™ (AAT)
AAT is a treatment approach specifically designed around the neuroscience of trauma and resultant chronic conditions. It works by creating new positive sensory and cognitive awareness. This restores homeostasis to the Central Nervous System, which in turn reduces or eliminates many Autonomically driven physical conditions.
Carole’s professional interest is to treat the ‘tough’ cases, where people have tried everything over many years and yet still have chronic pain.
Chronic pain and trauma are so often connected, and both need to be addressed to get resolution. Chronic conditions begin and end in the brain. They are not caused by the body. My techniques involve both hands on approaches, education about the real nature of pain and a combination of psychotherapy techniques to release trauma.
Hypnosis is often used in order to deal with trauma where it is stored – in the subconscious and in the body. (Refer to Levine, van der Kolk, Rothschild, Ogden et al).
