There has been a rise in childhood anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other behavioral issues. While there is greater awareness, many of these concerns stem from an imbalance in the body-mind connection, leading to struggles in being able to process emotions and experiences in a healthy way. Katie Connolly, a renowned Somatic Parenting Coach, has been transforming families by harnessing the power of somatic practices to support parents and children in developing a deep and harmonious body-mind connection.
Unraveling the Highly Sensitive Nervous System
Katie specializes in working with parents and children under the age of 10 who have highly sensitive nervous systems. Whether the sensitivity arises from external stimuli or internal factors, such as trauma or neurodevelopmental conditions like autism, Katie helps families navigate these challenges with empathy and expertise. By understanding the unique needs of highly sensitive individuals, she addresses concerns like anxiety, depression, and ADHD by focusing on the body-mind connection.
Balancing the Physical, Emotional, and Energetic Bodies
Katie guides parents and children in aligning their physical, emotional, mental, and energetic bodies through her craniosacral practice. She addresses physical imbalances and emotional patterns by tapping into these different aspects of our being. Katie’s holistic approach recognizes the interconnectedness of our emotions and physical well-being, empowering individuals to find inner peace and emotional harmony.
Nurturing Connection and Healing Trauma

By helping parents understand their own experiences and heal generational traumas, Katie supports them in fostering deep connection with their children. Through her trauma-sensitive approach, she guides families toward healing and growth.
Empowering Children through Somatic Tools
In addition to working directly with parents, Katie shares her expertise by training therapists, educators, and parents with somatic tools. By equipping these individuals with practical techniques, she enables them to create peaceful homes and classrooms where children can thrive. Through co-regulation and somatic practices, children learn to understand and express their emotions in healthy and empowering ways.
Embracing Play and Self-Expression
Katie’s approach to somatic parenting embraces the power of connection, play and self-expression. Drawing from her experiences working with children and adults, she recognizes the importance of reconnecting with our inner child. By encouraging parents to engage in activities they enjoyed as children, she helps them unlock their creativity and find joy in the present moment. This playful approach supports parents in nurturing a positive environment for their children’s healthy growth and development.
