Today I speak with Ruth Culver who is an IFS somatic psychotherapist based in Brighton, UK. She works with adults and teenagers, in groups and individually, with a particular interest in trauma, attachment, and resilience. We discuss her Survive/Thrive Spiral graphic which integrates Internal Family Systems with Polyvagal theory. She breaks down both systems and how they are useful in working with trauma. We also touch upon Constellations work as well as intuitive drawing.
