Somatic Therapy Practitioners
@ Soma Clinic
Chloe comes to somatics and touch therapy from a movement and dance background. Her strong kinesthetic sense allows her to attune to the unspoken story of the body and support clients to connect safely to their felt sense.
Her interest in trauma stems from her own upbringing in volatile environments and journey to find empowered expression. Chloe did an extensive mentorship with Director, Natalia Rachel; and has trained in Complex Trauma, Trauma-Sensitive Foundations for Facilitators, The Language ot Touch, and Hatha Yoga. Her interest as a practitioner is to make it safe for clients to explore their inner landscapes, find expression and resolution, in order to live a more connected life.

Natalia Rachel is the Director of Soma Clinic, trauma therapist, speaker and educator. She is responsible for mentoring the other somatic practitioners at Soma Clinic to adopt a ‘trauma-informed relational somatics approach’
As a practitioner, her focus is on a somatic approach to trauma recovery, specializing in complex cases where disassociation and fragmentation are present. Most of Natalia’s clients have experienced either acute of chronic relational trauma, that has been left unprocessed and presenting with physical and mental health symptoms. Using a trauma-informed, relational and somatic approach, Natalia incorporates both talk and touch therapy to support clients to explore their non-verbal experiences, explore and integrate fragmented aspects of the psyche and repair the often existential disconnection that may arise through unprocessed trauma. In addition to private sessions, Natalia also facilitates trauma recovery groups, drawing on the power of community and belonging, to promote vulnerability that cultivates internal and relational safety and the dissolution of shame.
