Paige Valdiserri is an internationally recognized Traumatic Stress & Integrative Healing Consultant. She is a highly regarded speaker, author, consultant, healer, coach and trainer. Her international work at the corporate level, which includes programs in the Middle East and Africa, and unique integrative healing approach, has empowered thousands of individuals on the front lines of stress to go from a place of personal fracturing back to wholeness. Whether it is recovering from war zones, natural disasters, sexual violence, medical/chronic illness, intense professional/corporate settings, life-changing personal events, and/or ongoing spiritual growth, clients and organizations have described her as a teacher, a guide, a healer, a spiritual intuitive and a reflection of themselves.
As a Board-Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress, Paige is also a Licensed Professional Counselor, Energy Medicine Healer, Biodynamic Craniosacral Trauma Therapist, Body Therapist, Master Reiki Teacher, Biofeedback practitioner, Shamanic healer, Spiritual intuitive, Kundalini Yoga instructor, Subconscious Restructure Coach, clairvoyant, empath and body intuitive. Paige consults and collaborates with corporate executives, physicians, chiropractors, and integrative holistic practitioners around the country through live video streams, trainings, workshops, teleconferences and podcasts.
The healing approach she developed, Biodynamic Energetic Body Therapy (BEBT), integrates various forms of Biodynamic and Bioenergetic healing, unique dialoguing techniques, clairvoyant and intuitive abilities, and draws from each of the modalities mentioned above in a way that is tailored to meet the needs of each individual client.
This approach is built on the premise that our bodies hold our life story and the key to healing from a physical, mental, emotional, medical, energetic, nutritional, and spiritual standpoint. When any of these components become compromised or out of balance as a result of not being maintained in a healthy manner, they have the potential to become deficiencies in the body, which can then manifest into stress, illness, injury, medical conditions, and possibly death. This approach teaches and empowers clients to address, connect, and ultimately trust their body’s inner knowing and innate wisdom for proactive and ongoing healing.
On a global level, Paige served as a subject-matter expert on trauma treatment and gender-based violence on a panel at Howard University (2017) in conjunction with its Department of African Studies where she consults on a project to assist victims of human sex trafficking in Nigeria become re-integrated back into society through a multicultural entrepreneurial program. She is heavily involved in preventing global violence against women, particularly honor killings, and has generated awareness about the issue through fundraising, social media, legal offices and The List Project. Additionally, she has worked in Rwanda with government officials and local community leaders to address systemic responses to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for victims of the genocide and has counselled displaced refugees from Sierra Leone’s civil war in the United States.
