Natalia Rachel is an authority in trauma-informed culture, trauma & abuse recovery and relational dynamics. Her insights into the human condition are a rare amalgamation of years working as a trauma therapist, educator and clinic director, as well as a lived experience of complex trauma, recovery & transformation.
Natalia is known to illuminate the darkest aspects of individuals and communities, with an uncanny blend of gentleness and acuity. She is not afraid to dive right into the roots of systemic issues and invite immediate change.
As a consultant, advisor and NED, Natalia brings an invaluable eye to assess and advise on relational dynamics, trauma-informed culture & policy development and consumer psychology. As a therapist and teacher, she takes an experiential approach, that ignites a process of empowered self-inquiry and vulnerable expression.
Natalia is also a keynote speaker, in demand for her captivating talks on topics such as: origins of mental health, trauma-informed culture, abuse recovery, empathy & emotional integration, human connection & relationships and boundaries. Her ability to synthesize concepts form modern neurophysiology and interpersonal neurobiology with the existential human experience never fails to resonate with her audiences.
All of Natalia’s work stems from the intention to support a shift from disempowerment and oppression to empowerment and expression, with relationship as the cornerstone for change.
Since the pandemic started we have drawn on our internal resources, built resilience and coped as best we can. As we continue to navigate the pandemic we first need to take a pause and integrate our stress, distress and mess from the last year. In this session, Natalia will share both personal stories and insights and invite self-injury and vulnerable, authentic sharing.
Some of the topics covered include:
- Fawn & Freeze & Fragmentation (the less talked about survival responses)
- Emotional Overwhelm & Integration
- Mastering our triggers
- Come prepared to take off the mask, to be seen and heard. This is all about being human.
