My motivation to join SaferSpaces:
I am an emotional fitness coach and therapist. I have been working to support clients deal with, manage and clear trauma, including sexual violence, since 2006.
In 2017, due to the widespread trauma in under-resourced schools, specifically an act of sexual violence against an 18 year old girl, my partner (Chantal) and I at 5th Place were inspired to see whether we could do something to address the trauma in this space. This culminated in us developing a pioneering bodyful / mindful process to regulate emotions in the moment called "Shape of Emotion". Shape of Emotion draws from the latest advances in Neuroscience, is content-free and both easy to use and learn.
