She creates an atmosphere of <strong><em>connection and collaboration</em></strong> that supports her clients moving towards a greater sense of well being. This is created by cultivating a sense of safety, non-judgment, attunement, a resonant field and holding the inherent and intrinsic belief that everyone can heal. This is not regressive therapy. Sille's work <strong><em>supports the body’s/nervous system's ability to self regulate and return to it’s organic nature</em></strong>, this in turn can facilitate change and you might experience more resilience and a greater capacity to be with the challenges and stressors of life.

An important aspect of SE  placing your attention on to <strong>what is happening in your body in</strong> present time with support and awareness. This work can allow for the rediscovery of parts of your self that you have might have lost connection with. SE Touch Work has the ability to change life long patterns that no longer serve you and<em><strong> your energy can then be available to experience the pleasure of being alive.</strong></em>
