Dissociative Disorders

Nina Hopmeier

Licensed Professional Counsellor, Registered Clinical Counsellor (RCC)
Dissociation is often linked to a trauma response. Trauma is a reaction that individuals have in response to an event that they perceive as overwhelming. Responses to trauma can be so overwhelming that completing daily tasks, such as going to work or getting out of bed may be a struggle. A significant symptom of trauma is feeling as if the traumatic event is still happening, sometimes, even years after the event occurred. In order to protect from the perceived traumatic event, it is understandable that people may choose to "check out" or "dissociate" from the experience. One of the downfalls of dissociation is that individuals are brought further away from the present moment, which is safe and non-threatening. In our work together I provide strategies to cope with dissociation in order to feel safe and gain renewed hope for the future.

Dissociative Disorders

Clayre Sessoms Psychotherapy

Registered Psychotherapist, RP, RCT, RCC, CCC, ATR-P
At Clayre Sessoms Psychotherapy, we specialize in providing compassionate support for individuals facing Dissociative Disorders. We approach dissociation from a non-pathologizing perspective, recognizing it as a natural response to overwhelming experiences, particularly in the context of trauma. As a senior facilitator of Trauma-Informed Stabilization Treatment, Clayre leads our team in offering trauma-informed care that focuses on stabilization and healing. Our therapeutic approach is rooted in creating a safe and validating space where clients can explore their dissociative experiences without judgment. We understand that dissociation can serve as a survival mechanism in response to trauma, and our goal is to help individuals navigate through these experiences with compassion and understanding. Through trauma-informed techniques and somatic interventions, we guide clients in building a sense of safety, grounding, and connection to their bodies. By fostering a deep understanding of how trauma impacts the mind and body, we support individuals in developing coping strategies, enhancing emotional regulation, and promoting integration of fragmented parts of self. Our commitment to non-pathologizing care means that we view dissociation as a natural response to adversity, rather than a pathology. We work with clients to help them reclaim agency, cultivate self-compassion, and foster a more cohesive sense of self. By empowering individuals to explore their experiences in a supportive and trauma-informed environment, we aim to facilitate healing, resilience, and a renewed sense of wholeness. We believe in providing trauma-informed support for individuals with Dissociative Disorders, honoring their experiences, and guiding them on a transformative journey towards self-discovery, healing, and empowerment.
