Transforming Trauma Episode 065: Peace with Self, Peace with Food with Galina Denzel
A podcast brought to you by the NARM® Training Institute
ln this episode of Transforming Trauma, our host Emily is joined by practitioner, teacher, and author, Galina Denzel. Galina is trained as a practitioner of NARM as well as Somatic Experiencing. She recently published a book, Peace with Self, Peace with Food.Throughout the episode we hear about how Galina integrates trauma healing approaches into her work.
Galina’s current focus in her work is with people who are suffering in their relationship with food, and often people who also have chronic body pain, fatigue, or other conditions. She works with people both in a group setting and one on one. After going through her own personal healing, Galina became passionate about helping others to experience similar transformation.
Learning about shock and developmental trauma were both important parts of her healing, and now integrated into the work she does with her clients. Galina shares her perspective that what is often misunderstood is that “there’s a biological foundation under [people’s] struggles, and unless that biological foundation is addressed and our nervous systems’ processes are addressed, everything else we do is just going to roll like water off a duck.”
We invite you to listen to this episode to hear more about Galina’s work and her new book. She has generously offered to share the first chapter of Peace with Self, Peace with Food with Transforming Trauma listeners – you can download it here: www.purebelonging.com/chapter
