I am currently seeing clients in person or via Zoom.
Due to the importance of vocal articulation and visibility of facial expression the wearing of masks in my practice, while recommended, is exempt under current government requirements.
If you are curious about Somatic Therapy please contact me & we can have a chat.
SOMA = the living body + therapy = treatment to heal or relieve
"Most psychologists treat the mind as disembodied, a phenomenon with little or no connection to the physical body. Conversely physicians treat the body with no regard to the mind or the emotions. But the body and mind are not separate, and we cannot treat one without the other."
Candice Pert, Molecules of Emotion
SOMAtherapy has its core belief in the whole person - our biological functioning, our rational mind, our emotional landscape and our natural capacity to adapt and heal.
Working from a trauma and attachment informed somatic perspective it is possible to transform the ways we connect with ourself, others and our environment.
SOMAtherapy helps when you may be experiencing;
Low self esteem & confidence
Relational rifts & disconnections
Working with somatic awareness you can begin to recognise & nourish...
resources which nurture and sooth you
the language & wisdom of your body and what it is telling you
how your thoughts and emotions relate to your inner body responses and sensations
an expanded range of life experiences & choice
My role as a Somatic Therapist & Counsellor is to move with you on your journey of self realisation & healing. To guide when necessary,
to counsel if needed, but most importantly to be present with
you in a place which is safe,
supportive and healing .
Somatic Therapist & Counsellor
To truly value our uniqueness & understand how we react within our environment; with people, our desires, our history & our potential paths it is valuable to connect our emotional sensate body to our thinking mind.
Connecting the way we act and the way we think together,
we become present in the way we are & can begin to develop compassion & kindness for our lived reality.
We can then become authentic to our being, open to accepting our uniqueness and learn to connect to others in nourishing ways.
