SE TRAUMA INSTITUTE PRACTITIONER DIRECTORY

Nadia Abou-Seda

SE™ PractitionerSE Assistant

Thank you for visiting my profile!  This may be an overwhelming time for you. I am honored to collaborate with you and support you in regaining your inner peace! My approach is strength based. I genuinely believe that you and I have an innate ability to heal!

Do you suffer from chronic pain or ongoing medical and/or physical issues? Have you experienced developmental trauma i.e. childhood abuse, neglect, witnessed violence, etc.? Or shock trauma i.e. vehicle accidents, sudden loss, natural disasters, medical procedures such as dental or surgical? Have you experienced an assault or inescapable attack (real or perceived)?

I adopt a psychobiological approach for treating trauma and relieving chronic stress. This approach resets your nervous system and enhances your resilience to stress.

I am an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor with a B.S.W., an Assaulted Women & Children's Counsellor diploma, and MA in Clinical Psychology. I’m a certified S.E.P. I have an extensive experience in supporting diverse individuals with a variety of mental health issues i.e. trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, cultural and relationship issues.

In my eclectic approach, I draw from evidence-based treatment modalities such as Somatic Experiencing (SE), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Solution-Focused Therapy.
