I'm an international Trauma-Informed Care Trainer

Trained in Kenya, UK, and USA, I hold a post doctorate in Trauma Informed Care, a PhD in Psychology and Culture, an MSc in Organizational Leadership and Management, a Higher Diploma in Psychological Counselling, and a BEd in Psycho-pedagogy.

I have done therapy work in different countries including Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Sudan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Italy, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, among others.

I have written several articles. My book, Breaking the Cycle: The Role of Auntie Rosie in Trauma Informed Care, is a result of both research and experiences of resilience in different countries.

Breaking the Cycle

My book, Breaking the Cycle, presents a different perspective in childhood trauma-informed care.

It addresses the role of Auntie Rosie and the importance of connection in the healing process. It proves that post-traumatic growth is indeed possible through loving relationships, and it emphasizes that being Auntie Rosie can enhance this growth.

This book presents different trauma healing perspectives and invites the reader to reflect on their own experiences and grow from them. Each of us has the capacity to heal, we need to tap the richness that lies within us, and, in creating, sustaining, and enhancing healthy relationships, we can indeed be very effective and efficient wounded healers.

Use of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) with East African Immigrant Women In Trieste, Italy​ - Teresa Ngigi

Italy, a leading entry port toward other countries in the EU, receives a large number of immigrants every month, especially in the spring, early summer, late summer, and early fall (Rapporto Onu, 2013.)

Immigration has become a pressing issue that challenges Italy’s status quo. As the number of legal and illegal immigrants grows, new needs arise. Among them, the integration process for these immigrants. Professional counsellors face the challenge of expanding their understanding and knowledge of effective techniques and approaches to work with diverse cultures.

Shifting From The Love Of Power To The Power Of Love

We look forward to the time when the power of love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace (William Ewart Gladstone) Love is as essential and indispensable as oxygen. We cannot live without it. Love has to do with both intrapsychic and interpsychic connectedness – connectedness with […]

The Adolescent Brain

Neurons that fire together wire together (Dan Siegel) How many of us have adolescents, are caregivers of adolescents, or are adolescents? How often have we, especially as parents, felt exasperated by the behaviour of our adolescent children? How many of us have preconceived ideas about who an adolescent is and how “immature” and “chaotic” they […]

We Are Spiritual Beings In A Human Body

The physical body is not truly ours. It belongs to planet earth. We can call it our own while we reside in it, but it does not belong to us (Pierre de Chardin) My mother taught us that God is at the centre of our being. She was a perfect example of seeking God. At […]

Self-Compassion

When I accept myself as I am, then I can change (Carl Rogers) Most of us were taught that virtue lies in beating ourselves up. This is also called self-flagellation. How many times have you found yourself saying: “I am so stupid!” after making a mistake? This is what we learned – to equate what […]
