Dialectical Beahioural Therapy (DBT) and Somatic Healing are Transforming My Life - Kyra Houghton
Having been diagnosed with anxiety and depression as a teenager, Kyra Houghton has been no stranger to the world of mental health. Anxiety and depression were the manifestations of her childhood trauma, but as life progressed these labels didn't quite fit.
She was later diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) and at this point began a journey of healing.
This journey started with Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). DBT is one of the more recommended forms of treatment for BPD so this was where Kyra decided to start. Through working with DBT Kyra also discovered Somatic Healing.
Somatice Healing is a "bottom up" therapy. Traditional therapies are "top down" where the mind is treated in order to heal the body. But Bottom Up therapy is where the holding of trauma within the body is addressed and as such by treating the body you treat the mind.
These therapies have tranformed Kyra's life, so much so that she is now on the path to qualification so that she can help and guide others in their mental health journeys.
