Many people have a poor relationship with their body: they are not comfortable in their skin and may see their bodies as something to be controlled or fought with. The reasons for this are often rooted in chilhood; watch my video to learn more about how your history affects your body.
Not everyone wants to engage in the analytical work involved in psychotherapy. Transformative bodywork is for those who want to place the emphasis firmly on the body. In these sessions, there is far less focus (or none at all) on dealing explicitly with the psychological roots of behaviour. All my bodywork modalities are working with the bodymind, and if you wish they may incorporate psychotherapeutic interventions. Unlike in psychotherapy, bodymind processing tends to happen at a more unconscious level.
Transformative Bodywork seeks to help you re-establish your connection with your body, to rediscover feelings, sensation, breathing, touch, freedom of movement, play, joy and pleasure. It helps you release the old patterns written in your body and the beliefs that say “I cannot”. It aims to make you become comfortable in your skin: you were born at home in your body and can recover what you have lost. Transformative bodywork can help you reclaim your right to feel vibrantly alive.
There are other possibilities
I am actually qualified in many other bodywork and subtle energy modalities, all of which inform my practice. So if you're looking for something I haven't mentioned, please do enquire. Whatever requirements you may have in terms of therapy, bodywork, counselling and support, whatever you need, I am very happy to tailor sessions to suit you. If you're not sure what would be best, feel free to call or email me.
