Due to the times we are in, most people have experienced some form of trauma in their life. Some would say we live on a trauma planet and indeed many people remain dislocated from the Higher Potential because of unresolved Core traumas.

Fundamentals in Trauma-Informed Approaches


In this course, we offer an overview to numerous trauma-informed therapies, tools and approaches to give you a multi-layered understanding of how trauma can be tackled from different vantage points and with diverse client needs. The course is intended as an overview to help practitioners and those interested in working through their own wounds to gain a basic understanding of trauma, to work on themselves AND to tune into what form of professional training they might seek in the future.

Students will get to learn how to bridge for overwhelmed clients while they seek referrals and basic insights as to how to gauge trauma in others and self. There is deep weaving of the concepts within trauma work to enable students to work in a lateral and informed way to help to support our communities at this time.

It is a valuable bridging tool in exemplary circumstances and does not substitute full training in a specific discipline or qualification.

Victoria Sinclair Padma Khandro

Padma Khandro Victoria Sinclair is a Worldwide respected consciousness innovator having facilitated community trainings and events for over 20 years. She is a trauma specialist originally from Belfast, N.Ireland and works bridging realms and modalities in innovation and unique ways for each client or group’s needs.

Victoria Padma Khandro grew up in N.Ireland during the Troubles and this catalysed her passion and interest for alleviation of suffering through trauma from a young age. She began international aid in Romanian orphanages from 17 and teaching children in deprived areas from 18. Her academic studies were focused deeply on cultures of inequality and led through a PGDip and MA to a doctorate with a major focus on trauma theory. Somewhat disillusioned with the ‘ivory tower’ Victoria had been studying counselling and energy medicine whilst working with refugee groups during her doctorate time and she soon left the University setting to set up an NGO focusing on fundraising through arts events to provide funding for displaced peoples.

Victoria Padma Khandro then project managed, secured funding and co-ordinated numerous innovative projects in inner city areas, prisons, gang areas, favelas etc from UK to Americas, learning greatly about the human condition and different forms of trauma and suffering throughout her 13 year period of deep nomadism.

Padma Khandro is well-known as a culture bridge-maker in her integral work with a broad range of recognised indigenous elders and teachers in S. America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Her training background includes; Transpersonal Psychology, Epigenetics, Trauma work, Pranayama, Kundalini Yoga, Plant medicines, De-colonisation and Quantum, sound and ancestral practices. She is also a plant communicator and trainer of Sekhem Healing, Serpent Codes, Quantum Consciousness, Fundamental Energetics and Altered States of Consciousness. Her fusion trauma informed approaches bridge shamanism, IFS, CRM, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Quantum Transfiguration and Ancestral work. She has been working as a practitioner in Energy Work and Mental Healthcare settings for 20 years.

In 2016 she pioneered the Wounded Healer Trauma Healing Blueprint in Manchester with a wide array of holistic practitioners and psychotherapists. In recent years Padma Khandro has been deepening a holistic integrated practice with clients and students to enable them to gain inner autonomy and insight around how their systems work which covers basic trauma insights, shamanic, ancestral and quantum work to high multidimensional teachings. Padma Khandro is a practitioner of Kalachakra Tantra – Highest Yoga Tantra for World Peace, studying with Khentrul Rinpoche and the Dzokden organisation, and this also factors deeply in the teachings and messages she shares.

Victoria’s dedication to healing communities has initiated various ground-breaking programs including the Lotus Avatar Earthkeepers Program, Wounded Healer Holistic Series and the Lotus Consciousness Platform – a global hub for conscious education – as well facilitating ceremonial practice with plant teachers, tribal councils and communities and at many international event gatherings. She has also recently launched a new Mystery School – Dharma Sekhem Temple Arts Rejuvenation School.
