We enter this world full of vitality and potential. All too often, our vitality and joy evaporate, and our potential fails to bear fruit. I believe life is too short to spend it unhappy and unfulfilled. My passion is to help people discover what is holding them back and to re-discover joy and meaning in being alive.
Bodymind Integration works with you as a whole person. It helps you re-establish your connection with your own body, releasing the embodied patterns carried from the past and the corresponding beliefs that restrict you. Rediscover feelings, sensation, breath and touch. Re-awaken play, joy and pleasure. You can reclaim your right to feel vibrantly alive!
If you're looking for a dynamic and creative route for deep and lasting change, with a humanistic therapist who is genuine, empathetic and non-judgmental, I can help. Read these testimonials to see what people have said about their experience of working with me.
COVID-19: working differently
During the coronavirus outbreak I am unable to offer face-to-face sessions. I will continue to help and support people through video calls. Although not ideal, there is much good work to be done in this way. I offer supportive & empathetic listening, counselling & guidance, visualisations and exercises in breathing, body awareness and mindfulness. Many of the exercises I take you through you can use for yourself in between sessions.
In these deeply worrying times, we all more than ever need care, support and love. Feel free to contact me if you feel in need of help. Stay safe and well.
What I offer
My work falls into two main categories: Bodymind Integration and Transformational Bodywork. Which of these you choose depends chiefly on how much of a supportive and guiding framework you want or need.
Bodymind Integration uses a variety of somatic (body-centred) and psychotherapy methods to help you understand how and why you are as you are, and to achieve deep and lasting change. Those in the early stages of their journey of personal development should perhaps start here - although it is also excellent for those much further down the road!
I understand that not everyone wants to engage in the analytical work involved in psychotherapy. Transformational Bodywork is more suited to those who want to place the emphasis firmly on the body; being more self-directed, it is perhaps most effective with those who already have a reasonable degree of self-awareness and an ability to understand and process change.
What approach is best for you is something we would discuss at our initial consultation.
