About Marina Yanay-Triner
I've walked this path. I've been where you are - shut down, anxious, depressed, with no way out.
Totally confused on what it means to feel my emotions, and what emotions even feel like in my body. Totally disconnected from my body, and living from neck up, constantly overthinking and criticizing myself for every little thing!
I was diagnosed with PTSD that resulted from being in an abusive relationship and immigrating as a refugee twice.
After years of talk therapy, I realized I needed something different and went to my first Somatic Experiencing therapist.
During this time, all of my tools included mindset alone: but talking and thinking my way out of the deep pain I was experiencing did not work.
You cannot solve a body-based issue with a mental approach alone.
Somatic approaches made a huge difference in my life. I started to feel better - more present in my life, excited to be alive.
I started to thrive in my relationships (my 11+ year partnership and my friendships) and in my business - doing the work my soul longed for and getting well paid for it!
With a background of 10 years in conflict transformation, where I facilitated Israelis and Palestinians in deep healing and personal transformation dialogue, a certificate in integrative somatic trauma therapy and a certification from the Institute for Coaching Mastery - I am equipped with the tools, life experience and knowledge to support you in your regulation and healing journey. I am so excited to support you!
