"A gentle, resource-oriented approach to stress and trauma. Merete Holm Brantbjerg talks about working with low energy states and our "invisible parts" in the context of Relational Trauma Therapy".

November 2020: This video titled: Supporting sustainable Change, was presented at the 1st online congress of Humanistic Psychology and Psychotherapies.

March 2021: What sustains you?
I was attracted to the question - especially in this time of crisis: What supports me to manage and carry myself through in spite of high both personal and collective stress? The conversation is now available on this link, where you also can find other conversations in the series: The conversation holds an example of how tracking the hypo-responsive part of a stress-pattern can open up to a deeply satisfying presence.

NEW April 2021: Sitting on the edge of an abyss together
In April 2021 I was invited to do a presentation in Bristol Psychotherapy Association - on working with hypo-arousal. You can see the recording here:
“Sitting on the edge of an abyss together” captures an essential element in working with hypo-arousal/collapse. Merete Holm Brantbjerg will introduce how low dosed muscle-activation can be used to build enough resilience in both client and therapist to be able to approach hypo-states and stay present instead of either being pulled into the given up state or polarise to it by trying to get out of it.

Podcasts in English.

1 Intro to working with low energy focusing on hyporesponse in muscles

2 Steps in developing a methodology for working with hypo-states - the dosing principle

3 Sitting on the edge together working with collapse/hypoarousal resources for the therapist.

4 Guiding into presence - Complexity in traumapatterns Selfregulation and mutual regulation

Mark Walsh - the founder of The Embodiment Conference - and I had a conversation in July, that is part of a series of Embodiment podcasts. You can listen to the conversation on this link:

NEW In December I had an online-conversation with Susan Groves, a British Core Process Therapist, who became interested in my focus on dominance and submission, when attending one of my presentations. The conversation is wide - it doesn’t have a planned structure for what we want to present. It is simply a conversation between 2 psychotherapists and women, who from each our views have a focus on dynamics around dominance and submission. The conversation is now available to listen to on - for anybody who are curious about it.
