My name is Colm McDonnell. I am a Certified Clinical Somatic Educator (CCSE) and Somatic Movement Coach under Martha Peterson of www.essentialsomatics.com. I am also a qualified Massage Therapist and Sports Injury Therapist. I have taught Somatics in the UK, Canada, Australia and India.
I have always had a keen interest in human movement and health. Injuries I picked up training in various Martial Arts as a youth led me in a roundabout way to explore everal different therapies and bodywork disciplines. The most effective of these by far has been Hanna Somatics. As soon as I was exposed to this method I was hooked. I always suspected that there must be some way in which a person could resolve their own pain and/or movement dysfunction. Clinical Somatic Education IS that way.
It is my goal to expose as many people as possible to this work, so that they too may experience physical independence, greater mastery of their own bodies and pain free movement that can last a lifetime.
