“The body carries the legacy of trauma and attachment dynamics in procedural habits of movement, posture, and nervous system regulation that can keep clients stuck in the past.” – Pat Ogden
Have you ever heard a song and all of a sudden you are taken back to former years, maybe a teenager growing up? Or you smell a particular fruit and you are reminded of visiting your grandparents on holidays? or maybe a particular look from your partner makes you feel uncomfortable?
We all experience events pleasant or traumatic to varying level, maybe from a specific intrusive event or the perception of harm inflicted upon us. Either way our body holds the memory of the trauma and reminds us through bodily sensations, this is called a somatic experience. It can change our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors leaving us uncomfortable and dis-regulated.
Moving from your head into your body with an increased awareness of the sensations allows us to engage our innate healing capacity.
Simple body techniques, informed by the somatic sciences and the DMM, such as breathe patterns or muscle relaxation begins the healing process and restores the bodies equilibrium.
Join us for the next DMM Coffee House where Linda Hayes-Cooper will share some of these techniques us. https://lindacep.com/

Linda Hayes-Cooper helps new and expected parents navigate the challenges of early parenting 0-5yrs of age. With 25yrs of experience incorporating her Midwifery, Baby Whisperer, and Clinical Psychology expertise she focuses on resetting to provide a calm and emotional emotional presence in parents and their children’s lives. She uses psychological strategies including CBT, Mindfulness, Meditation, NLP, Attachment and Emotional therapies. She is currently training in Hypnotherapy.
Linda also uses the Dynamic-Maturational Model of Attachment and Adaptation (DMM). The DMM is best attachment model to help parents understand how to practice attachment parenting. The DMM is especially helpful for early parenting with children under six years old, the period of time when children’s brains are massively developing. Linda serves as a parenting coach, parenting therapist, emotional coach, and pregnancy and perinatal coach.
Linda has developed the Calm Emotional Presence (CEP) parenting model to help parents quickly help themselves and their children to gain effective emotional, behavioral, and state of mind regulation. It is built on principles from the DMM, attachment theory, somatic sciences, Neurolinguistic programming (second wave), and mindfulness theories.
Linda worked as a clinical psychologist in Australia before moving to Pennsylvania, U.S. She is highly trained in many psychological and parenting modalities and models, both the DMM and the ABC+D models of attachment. She is trained in Circle of Security, Marte Meo, Watch, Wait & Wonder, the DMM attachment assessments CARE-Index and Adult Attachment Interview. She has worked as parent-infant therapist, and as a perinatal clinical psychologist.
Linda is a frequent contributor to DMM Coffee House conversations and has hosted previous sessions on the commonalities between the DMM and ABC+D models of attachment and common DMM A and C markers and sub-patterns seen in private practice.
