Hi, I’m Kate from Romney Marsh Osteopaths and the Stress Consultant and this is my Study Blog:
Since qualifying as an Osteopath in 1996 I have developed my skill and interest in Cranial Osteopathy and undertaken post graduate study with the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy and the Upledger Institute of Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
However, I over time I realised that pain and suffering are not always physically traumatic in origin, so I started to talk to people on a deeper level, which proved beneficial, but I often felt there was more at work than I was qualified to approach. Consequently I started to recommend patient’s consult a Talking Therapist, but they felt comfortable with me and didn’t want to ‘start again with a stranger’.
After a long period of contemplation, in 2016, I made the decision that I wanted to be the fully rounded practitioner these patients required and therefore I needed to gain more knowledge. So I started to study Life Coaching and I have since committed to an extensive program of further study to develop my understanding of not just the impact of stress and emotional trauma on the body but also what to do about it.
January has seen a real shake up in the Rapid Pain Elimination Therapy/Mind Mediation world with the birth of a new therapy called Sanomentology. Sano means to heal, repair, restore, make whole and Mente means of the mind.
This deeply relaxing trance therapy focuses on clearing the unseen emotional residue of past events that we are all carrying with us that imperceptibly colour our thoughts/decision-making processes, which many people seem to find hugely beneficial. This is a form of hypnotherapy with an emphasis on guided visualisation, but I have found it to be even more powerful than the more conventional hypnosis approach.
Many new exciting protocols have consequently been added to the discipline so in February I was able to complete these additional training days. I am now enjoying combining these elements into my case studies and am looking forward to achieving certification, hopefully during the spring.
This quarter home study wise I have been concentrating on my Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Diploma, which should really prove to be a useful therapy for those who prefer to focus on the here and now. All that remains is for me to complete my final piece of course work and take my exam.
