Bigger problems deserve better questions.
Have you ever had a really tricky emotional conversation or task to do, stewing on this endlessly until one day you get up the courage to address it, and somehow it all comes together? Afterwards you may have been a bit wobbly, but soon you start to feel better, more alive, and wonder why it was so hard to get to that point.
Formalisation of this process is what Resociative Medicine is all about, but in a manner that makes it much easier and minimises any risk of re-traumatisation. Also the conversation or task may be with yourself, or with an old memory or challenge, rather than somebody or thing in the here and now.
And sometimes there may not be a ‘verbal’ conversation at all, as you may not know what it is you have to do, but your tissues are telling you that something is not in balance, and the condition is not responding to, or keeps on coming back after, 'normal' medical or physical intervention. That’s also appropriate for Resociative Medicine as in this process we also work with and respond to the body directly.
Explicitly Resociative Medicine combines (one or more of the below as appropriate):
Another way of thinking about this therapy is as ‘neuro-emotional (and immune/inflammation systems) rehabilitation/coaching’:
We’re all familiar with physical rehabilitation after a trauma and/or operation, and that to get results some work is required. Resociative Medicine can be thought of as a similar thing for the nervous-emotional (and connected) systems. (Recognising that these are not mutually exclusive and if after physical rehabilitation things ‘don’t feel quite right’ then there is probably still some charge in the tissues that needs to be resolved.)
Siobhan may draw your attention to what you say and how you say it, what you don’t say, what your body is saying in the consultation (via emotional transference and/or small movements) and/or what your symptoms are saying, to prioritise what needs to be addressed and how.
And whilst in a relaxed state in the session you will learn to track your own nervous system and sensation responses as these issues are processed, so that you can do further work on your own.
Few people work with Siobhan who are not already engaged with other practitioners, and as such she does not practice ‘routine’ general practice in this clinic. She also encourages all clients to have a relationship with a regular GP/clinic, even if they more regularly see practitioners from other modalities.
Siobhan is happy to liaise with other practitioners from whatever modality, if a client feels it would be beneficial. Additionally here is an information sheet for other professionals:
