Lori Clarke operates Resonance Somatic Counselling Services in St. John’s, Newfoundland, offering counselling to individuals, couples and small groups.
Specializing in bereavement, trauma, and cultivation of creativity, Lori works with her clients to build skills, tap into vitality, and find greater balance in life, relationships and work.
Sometimes clients need something different than what is offered in talk-based therapies. While verbal communication is important in all counselling relationships, somatic work also attunes to more than verbal experiences of body sensations, movement and energy. Through an integrative body psychotherapy approach it is possible to support the nervous system’s innate capacity to restore balance.
When a client has experienced loss– of a loved one, relationship, career, or sense of self– Lori’s calming, listening presence and skill can help. Lori has experience working with dying persons and their families, bereaved persons, and those who feel overwhelmed by life’s challenges and the anxious feelings that arise with grief and bereavement.
Somatic approaches are particularly effective in dealing with cumulative, chronic and traumatic stress responses. Since 2015, Lori has been deepening her body-centred approach by doing training in Somatic Experiencing® through the International Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute where she is now an Advanced level trainee. SE™ is a an applied psychobiological approach to trauma resolution in which practitioners work experientially with clients through “stuck” fight, flight and freeze responses.
Lori is a certified professional member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (Lorraine Clarke, CCPA #3865).
