“Trigger,” “Dissociate,” “Disconnect.” These are just a few of the words that describe that moment your client clenches, scrunches, curls, holds, weeps, or shakes uncontrollably. All dialog stops as their gaze drifts away. In the silence, the visceral experience is happening – now. In this moment, the physical body, in all its presentation of trauma, becomes the most powerful tool available.

* What do you do now? Soleil says,
"Somatic sessions go beyond only 'talking about' or 'noticing' the body. It invites the immediate use of the sensorial and kinesthetic. Supporting your client to safely stay in the felt-sense of the direct embodied experience can be the access way toward healing, growth, and the neuro-restructuring of trauma.
Learn to "drop-in" and use the present moment - more..."
Get out of the Chair & into the Body
With Soleil Hepner, C-IAYT
Somatic Therapy Educator since 2005
Join us for a transformative journey into harnessing the power of the body in your therapy or coaching practice. In the Somatic Session 6-Module Series, I've distilled two decades of experience into a dynamic exploration of 'bottom-up' direct experiences, and offer simple, ethical, and effective tools to address trauma, pain, grief, stress, recovery, and holistic mental well-being.
Each distinct Module has a TOPIC and includes:
EMBODIED EXPERIENCE to find personal relevance
DIDACTIC LECTURE on how this relates to your work
REAL PRACTICE to implement in your work and life
COACHING & PEER SUPPORT to stay connected
Since 2005, I've taught therapists, coaches, and wellness experts of all kinds how to bring the body into their client sessions. Let's explore how to do that easily and effectively for both in-person and online sessions, whether you are new to this, or already somatically inclined.

What supervisors say about Soleil,
"It was a pleasure to bring Soleil in for training our counselors to learn an aspect of clinical support that is not traditionally taught in schools. We appreciated the opportunity to experientially and didactically learn effective somatic based techniques to help clients more thoroughly integrate trauma and reconnect with their bodies. I highly recommend Soleil's workshops to learn a unique and valuable adjunct to traditional psychotherapy."
