Aisling is a somatic therapist and group facilitator, based in Co.Donegal and also available online. She has trained extensively for the past 20 years in a rich range of modalities, and brings a depth of presence and compassion to her clients. Aisling trained with Joan Davis, founder of the "Origins' Somatic therapy approach, who supervises her current therapeutic work, and is also completing a PhD in Psychology and Leadership. Her passion is to support people in their journey of self-discovery, healing and well-being.
As a therapist, Aisling works somatically through talk therapy, movement, creative expression, and attention to body sensation. She holds a space for the exploration of how early life experience can shape our adult lives, where patterns rooted in nervous system survival responses can create responses such as fight and flight, freeze and pleasing others. She works with a range of issues including: stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and dissociative responses, relationship issues, abuse, attachment disruption and repair, life purpose and vocation, and cultivating an embodied sense of self. In all of her work, she offers her clients a calm and empathetic presence that comes from her own embodiment of healing, creating a space where early life patterns can be healed and transformed.
Aisling holds an M.A in Movement Research, and Diplomas in Contemporary Yoga, DTR Dance therapy, and ORIGINS/ Somatic Therapy & Education. She is currently undertaking a PhD in Psychology and Leadership. Aisling has worked in collaboration with many organisations and is a Wisdom Council member with Abbey of the Arts.
