Welcome to We are Vega
We’re bringing accessible, usable and effective therapy to everyone who needs it, demystifying trauma, attachment and anxiety so you can gain some real understanding. We’ll teach you how to tune in and listen to what your body is telling you, helping you understand how past experiences shape your life. We provide you with ability to take your mental health and put it back into your own hands, so you can get healthy and stay healthy, empowering you to be who you really are.
We’re building a community of like-minded people, who can face challenges with a positive and confident attitude together. This is a community of people who are serious about making changes and are willing to try something different.
Do you know your own mental health journey?
The Vega Map
Most of us have some awareness of the connection between problems we encounter now and early life experiences. However, we often don’t know how they are connected or why they may affect us the way they do. We created the Vega Map as a way of showing you all these connections and links for your mental health. We aim to make those connections clearer, giving you insights and understanding, helping you get onto the healing path that is right for you. It’s a great way to learn where your behaviours or certain patterns have come from and why they might be there.
The Body Work Course
Our brand new course!
We are delighted to announce our first body work course is here! A step-by-step, guided course to help you manage your mental health & build a good relationship with yourself and your body.
This course shows you exactly how to work with your body, listening to it and understanding the messages you get from it, enabling you to connect to yourself in a way you never have before. We can learn to be more in control of our emotions, physical responses, and learn how to heal on a much deeper level.
Who are we?
We are a mother and daughter, Catriona & Krista, who came together to build a community and network, for people who struggle with their mental health. Catriona is a Sensorimotor Psychotherapist & Krista a digital content creator. By combining our skills and expertise, we can help provide people with the tools needed to manage their mental health, making a difference to the lives of many.
What is Sensorimotor Psychotherapy?
Every experience we have is felt through the body. All of our emotions, senses and physical feelings happen in our body. When we recall memories, it makes us feel a certain way. How we determine whether we like something or not, comes from what the body tells us.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy teaches you to tune in and listen, being able to understand what our bodies are telling us. When we can notice and feel, we can observe how our body changes when we get scared or anxious, there will be subtle changes which we can actually manage and help. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is trauma informed, somatic therapy. It’s a way of allowing the trauma we suffer from to be healed through the nervous system & body.
In conversation with Will Young
Catriona sat down with Will Young, as they met over Zoom in lockdown. They discussed Will’s mental health journey and what he did to begin healing. They talked about what life has been like for trauma survivors in the Covid 19 pandemic, and how it can teach us to have more understanding and compassion to those struggling. They also discuss how trauma and attachment can affect each of us, and what different things and techniques we can use to help ourselves.
We’re so excited to announce that we’re launching our first body work course on 26th April!
We began this business wanting to make mental health help accessible and affordable for everyone, creating resources that were easy and simple to use, beyond 1-1 therapy. This course finally encapsulates that, it’s the foundation and blueprint of everything that Catriona does in her work.
Finding the right therapist for you
Nearly all of Catriona’s clients have had previous therapists, it can be really hard finding the right one. We all have the same brain, body and nervous system but we have all had different life experiences. We all have different coping mechanisms, different attachment styles and belief systems. One size does not fit all and it’s the therapists job to make sense of the clients experience. We explain what therapy should really do for you, and how to know if the therapy you’re currently in is right for you.
