Daya Cabestany

SE™ PractitionerSE Assistant

My aim is to offer you tools and take-aways from the beginning of our work together.

I intend the therapeutic process to be an empowering experience that will help you build skills for daily life.

During sessions you will gradually learn to calm your body's emergency response system, quiet your mind, self regulate, ground, build a sense of safety and greater resilience.

I gently interweave somatic psycho-education into the processing, aware of the importance of meeting the mind in its search for meaning and the relief it provides to start making sense.

For a while you may feel as if you were learning a new language; the language of sensations, a trustworthy guide into the exploration of your somatic inner realms.

Understanding how necessary emotional safety, solid boundaries and complete trust are for trauma healing work, my intention is to hold space for your process in a way that allows you to feel safe and contained every step of our work together. Never going beyond what feels tolerable for you.

My clients often describe me as compassionate, non-judgmental, gentle, respectful, intuitive, skilled, grounded, reliable, sensitive and safe.

My personal and academic experience with yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices and philosophy, consciousness exploration, the 12 Steps, recovery from codependency, childhood trauma and addictions inform my SE practice and approach to healing.

My practice is deeply inspired by the work of Dr. Peter Levine, Dr. Stephen Porges (Polyvagal theory), Dr. Diane Poole Heller, Pia Melody, Dr. Gabor Maté, Dr. Dan Siegel,   Dr. Bessel van Der Kolk and other cutting edge researchers and trauma and attachment experts.

I am a certified Somatic Experiencing® practitioner and Kundalini Yoga and Meditation teacher, and have worked in the field of addiction in a treatment centre.

I´ve had the honor to study and learn with Dr. Peter Levine and I´m currently taking the foundation training year of Bodynamics (body psychotherapy).

I am a member of the Spanish Association for Somatic Experiencing where I collaborate with the board.

I am currently working as the teacher´s translator  in SE trainings in Spain.
