The Holistic Alternative to Psychotherapy & Counselling

Bodymind Integration: a deep & powerful approach to Personal Growth, Healing & Transformation

Therapy that touches the whole person: mind, body, soul & spirit

Bodymind Integration

Deep healing and change

Bodymind Integration is a deep & powerful mind-body approach to personal development, emotional and psychological healing & transformation (including PTSD), and a whole-person alternative to conventional psychotherapy and counselling.

If you're looking for a dynamic and creative route for deep and lasting change, with a humanistic therapist who is genuine, empathic and non-judgmental, I can help.

“To occupy your body is to occupy your life. The body is everything.” Jacob Needleman

Transformative Bodywork

Befriend your body

Re-establish your connection with your body. Rediscover feelings, sensation, breathing, touch, freedom of movement, play, joy and pleasure…

Release the old patterns written in your body and the beliefs that say “I cannot”. Become comfortable in your skin: you were born that way and can recover what you have lost.

Reclaim your right to feel vibrantly alive.

Pulsing Rhythmic Bodywork

Workshops for personal development or professional training

Pulsing helps you move more freely and feel more alive. Pulsing is a rhythmic, rocking, movement-based approach and is perhaps the most deeply relaxing and most nurturing form of bodywork.

These weekend workshops are a wonderful experience, and are also approved professional trainings.

Experiential workshops

The power of the group

The special energy created by a group of people can lead to sudden breakthroughs that might occur more slowly in individual work. In my workshops the emphasis is on the felt experience of issues: deep work leavened by playfulness.

Supervision & Mentoring

For practitioners and trainees

I provide supervision to body-centred therapists, counsellors and others who use counselling or relational skills in their practice.

I also offer coaching and mentoring to professionals or trainees in Pulsing Rhythmic Bodywork, Postural Integration and others forms of bodywork, covering technique, somatic psychology, energetic connection, emotional and psychological self-care and boundaries.

No ordinary therapy
For you, the embodied self

Body-centred therapy is a truly holistic approach, as it treats people as a whole person and approaches their problems accordingly. Conventional psychotherapy and counselling are talk-based and only engage the mind. For health problems, doctors only treat the body. Body-centred approaches work with the embodied self: mind, body and spirit.

An integrated approach treating mind, body and spirit is a very ancient practice. Purely talk-based therapies such as counselling and psychotherapy are a recent phenomenon.
