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.

Trauma and Adoption

Adopting a child is a highly emotional experience that is characterized by a deep desire by a couple to become parents.
 
It is important to consider that the child they desire to adopt has gone through abandonment trauma. Trauma can have a devastating effect as well as a significant impact on the development, behavior, relationships, and emotional regulation of a person.
 
This book ventures into the world of adoption, through scientific research surrounding trauma, emphasizing the various stages that characterize the life experiences of both the adopted child and the adoptive parents.

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

Global migration caused by wars, natural disasters, and the search for a better life, is causing substantial demographic shifts around the globe. 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.
