Working in the field of Behavioural Healthcare I often have the opportunity to engage with other professionals and providers in support of my clients. The team at Living with The Spirit in Chiang Mai are wonderfully creative and generative in their approach to supporting healing and wellbeing, which is why I was excited by the opportunity to work with them.
Sara and Simba, the owners of Living with The Spirit, consulted with my team at Rise (Asia’s first gender responsive trauma informed treatment program) to help develop innovative and responsive ways to support our clientele with their treatment experiences. They offered us a unique blend of body based holistic healing methods developed with understanding and appreciation of the specific environmental and psychological needs of our clients.
In addition to their consulting services, Living with The Spirit offer clients in a secondary stage of recovery a safe place to continue to work on integrating somatic and emotional experiences into their daily lives. Their premises, close to the centre of Chiang Mai have a residential component, allowing people to stay, be looked after with 24/7 care, and engage in bespoke individualised healing and wellbeing treatment plans for as long as needed. This phase of early recovery as a continuation to primary treatment services, can provide a significant contribution to ongoing success and recovery for clients in need of additional services.
I am delighted to have already had the opportunity to work with these healing professionals and look forward to further partnership in the future.
