Empowering practitioners to work effectively with clients who have experienced complex trauma


My name is Shideh Lennon. I am a dedicated psychologist with over two decades of experience.

My mission is to empower practitioners to work effectively with clients who have experienced complex trauma.

I specialize in training fellow professionals in Somatic Experiencing. 

My approach is grounded in a rich tapestry of therapeutic modalities, honed over more than 20 years of practice. Warmth, humanity, and collaboration are the guiding principles that underpin both my teaching and therapy work.

I firmly believe that the body possesses the wisdom needed to renegotiate trauma and pave the way for a life of choice, resilience, and wholeness.

Unlocking Your Potential as an Embodied Practitioner

Being an embodied practitioner is a profound strength, enhancing your presence, resilience, compassion, and overall effectiveness. When we reconnect with our own bodies and cultivate a regulated nervous system, we become more available to our clients. Trauma may reside in the body, but it is also healed through the body’s innate wisdom. Teaching trauma resolution is my passion and a way of giving back the embodiment and resilience I’ve discovered throughout my personal and professional journey.

Belonging to ourselves and establishing safe connections with others is our birthright.
