MASHA BENNETT - Trauma Awareness for Sound Healers

DATE : Saturday 16th February 2019 - Sunday 17th February 2019

TIME : 9:00 to 17:00 both days

VENUE : Studio Fields, Stillingford Road, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, OX10 8LQ

COST : £180

DETAILS : This is a two day workshop covering both practical and theoretical aspects of working with clients who have experienced trauma, within the context of sound healing/sound therapy practice as well as more generally in a holistic therapy setting. A maximum of 10 places is available.


Practitioners and healers working with any aspect of sound healing or sound therapy including the voice, gongs, singing bowls, drums and other instruments. It is also suitable for other holistic practitioners such as yoga teachers, massage and reiki therapists who do not necessarily use sound in their work, but may encounter traumatised clients where the treatment could potentially trigger a trauma reaction.


~ how to recognise the signs of trauma in their clients
~ important differences between developmental trauma and shock trauma/PTSD
~ the basic neuroscience of trauma and how to apply it in practise
~ significance of Adverse Childhood Experiences
~ the essential components on trauma healing
~ why sound healing and some other holistic therapies may be particularly effective in releasing trauma and how it may also trigger traumatic reactions
~ the risk of vicarious traumatisation in therapists and how to help to prevent it
~ a range of simple techniques and approaches that will help both them and their clients stay safe and grounded during and after the session and in between sessions
~ steps that need to be taken to assess and manage potential risk with a client who is in severe distress
~ options for referral to trauma specialists and other mental health professionals

It is important to note that whilst some aspects of this course may be healing, it’s main purpose is educational - it is not intended as a replacement for personal therapy. As this course deals with trauma and other potentially distressing material, before booking your place, please be sure that you are able to take part in discussions that may touch on some difficult topics, without detriment to yourself. It is particularly important that you have enough sleep, do not over work, eat well, drink plenty of water and take time to connect to nature, in the few days before the course as well as after it.
