    Given the right circumstances, I believe the human mind can heal and bring itself back into balance.

    “We humans don’t fully know our own hearts and minds, the things that we don’t know about ourselves still impact our lives and our relationships. They can limit us and cause us pain. There is value in coming to know our hearts and minds more fully, because it gives us the option to be able to do things differently. It offers an alternative to recreating and reliving the same painful patterns.” – Jonathon Shedler

    Lasting change arises from a deeper experience of ourselves – it’s not something we simply “do”. The Conversation Model (CM) of clinical psychoanalytical psychotherapy is a place from which people can deeply explore their own minds and motivations in a setting that is supportive, inclusive, empathic and completely non-judgmental.

    Expanding on over ten years of training and experience as a Somatic Sex Educator and Embodiment Therapist through the Institute of Somatic Sexology in Brisbane, I am presently a clinical trainee of Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy in the Conversational Model (CM) through the Australian & New Zealand Association of Psychotherapy (ANZAP) and am a Clinical Supervisor and Mentor for SSEAA.

    “Cyd Crossman is one of a small and highly influential group of women investigating the intersection of love, sexuality, and self-awareness.

    A respected, grounded, and authentic practitioner, Cyd’s work focuses on developing a more respectful, compassionate, and truthful relationship with ourselves, as an essential requirement of a more just, equitable, and enlightened human society.”

    The Conversational Model (CM) was specifically designed for people who have experienced complex trauma, but it is effective for many types of people and difficulties. It is worth mentioning that training in CM is notably different to psychology courses and most other psychotherapy courses currently on offer because it requires the delivery of 150 hours of face-to-face psychotherapy practice with people who have experienced trauma, while engaging in weekly and twice weekly intensive clinical supervision with expert supervisors.

    This intensive ‘hands-on’ training alongside more than ten years of experience as a Somatic Sex Educator and Embodiment Therapist provides me with a unique skillset combining the Body and Mind.
