Maggie Locke, LMFT, CBT
Maggie Locke is a Mentor at the OI HEARTraining®. She discovered somatic therapies in the mid-1990s during a course of personal treatment in Bioenergetic Analysis. The work affected her so profoundly that she transitioned from a successful 20-year career in journalism to study and practicing this approach.
After 10 years of working as a Psychotherapist with the severely mentally ill in a variety of settings she was introduced to Somatic Experiencing® during a workshop. Almost immediately she sensed significant change in her system and entered the SE™ training.
Another 10 years later, having established a private practice based on somatic approaches, Organic Intelligence invites further expansion into her relationship with herself, her work and the world.
Maggie is a mother, a grandmother and a dual citizen of the United States and Ireland. Her life — much of it lived abroad — has been an effort to bridge different cultures and eras to find her ground amidst breathtaking change. While the kind of community and connection she knew as a child in a rural Irish hinterland no longer exists, she has found a sense of connection and grounding within herself, through the deep experience of her own body.
Her work aims to open this capacity for others who navigate their own losses and longings, to help bring them home to themselves in the natural world of their own physiology.
