About

Hi, my name is Colm McDonnell and I’m a Certified Clinical Somatic Educator. I am a graduate of the inaugural Essential Somatics Clinical Training (2015). I also hold diplomas in Holistic Massage, ITEC (2006) and Sports Injury Therapy, NSRT(2007).

I am an integral member of the Essential Somatics international clinical teaching team. I act as a mentor for clinical students and students of the Essential Somatics Movement Teacher Training program. I have taught Somatics in the UK, US, Canada, India, Australia and of course here in Ireland.

I am also a registered professional member of ISMETA, the global governing body for all Somatic Practitioners worldwide.

I specialise in working with  chronic muscular pain, stress managment, relaxation techniques and helping people move better. I work with clients from all walks of life at my practice in, Donabate, Co. Dublin. I work with clients one to one in person, and online. I also teach group classes and workshops.

I have used Somatics to resolve several chronic injuries and complaints I accumulated over the years through martial arts, strength training, and life in general. I am passionate about teaching people how they too can resolve their pain, improve their movement and be their most potent selves through a regular Somatic Movement practice. My own personal Somatic movement practice has allowed me to be able to continue to enjoy playing ten pin bowling, strength training and climbing. I also like to write, read, listen to music, and walk by the sea.
