Don St John
Don St John, Ph.D., is a somatic-relational psychotherapist, workshop leader and writer of the award winning book, Healing the Wounds of Childhood. He's a licensed Continuum Movement teacher and Hellerwork Structural Integration practitioner and coach. He's taught and given demonstrations in America, Canada, New Zealand, and Brazil.
Don brings two general qualifications into the authorship of Healing the Wounds of Childhood. First, and possibly most important, is that he's traveled the territory that he explains, and he has achieved an arguably astounding degree of personal change in one lifetime. As a psychotherapist, he works in a style which requires deep empathy and attunement with his or her patients. It's a degree of emotional presence he couldn't even have understood or imagined when he started his recovery journey. As a Continuum Movement teacher, he teaches fluid movement. Again, this could have been unimaginable for him three decades ago. Thus, he's obviously walked exactly what he speaks.
His next general eligibility is that he's been immersed in psychotherapeutic and somatic therapy worlds for the last forty-seven years. His roots were in traditional clinical psychology, but earlyon he realized from his own experience which the body has to be included. Thus started his journey in the the psychotherapeutic and somatic lands.
Dr. St John analyzed Gestalt Therapy in the LA Gestalt Therapy Institute and also Neo-Reichian treatment with Drs. Allan Darbonne and Jack Lee Rosenberg; the Psychology of Selves and Voice Dialogue Method with Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone; Hakomi using Dr. Ron Kurtz; Coherence Treatment with Dr. Bruce Ecker; AEDP with Dr. Diana Fosha; and CIMS with Dr. Albert Sheldon and Beatriz Winstanley. He's taken immersion classes and center training in Dr. Sue Johnson’s Emotionally-Focused Couple’s Therapy. He's licensed in Somatic Experiencing, the work of Dr. Pet
