One to One Somatic Psychotherapy

A mindful, ecological and race-sensitive approach

One to One Somatic Psychotherapy ONLINE offers a confidential space to discover your unique inner being and explore aspects of the lived experience that have become tangled.  
Sessions follow what is necessary for the flowering of the individual, and can include dance and movement, body-centred enquiry and talking and exploring appropriate questions can help deepen understanding and the evolution of our inherent wisdom.
Mindfulness is integrated within the session, supporting clarity, awareness and compassion.  Being witnessed in co-created presence can be valuable for increased embodied self-awareness and creativity.

Sessions can be valuable for:

  • Working with difficult thoughts & emotions
  • Stress, depression & anxiety
  • Health issues
  • Relationships, work issues & life transitions
  • Childhood trauma
  • Enquiring into life’s deeper meaning
  • Racial identity / cultural heritage issues

What happens in a session?

We work directly through the body in stillness and in movement, integrating words and talking. Physical movement, sensations, emotions, thoughts, sounds and images are included, allowing subtle and emergent states to be experienced, expressed and compassionately witnessed. This often fulfills a deep longing to be clearly felt, seen and heard.  Space can be made for new ways of expression and relating to be explored.
My approach supports healing pain and difficulty in our lives, insights into how we relate to others, and the cultivation of clarity, aliveness and wellbeing. This can lead to a renewed sense of purpose or direction and increased energy and motivation.  The aim is help you live more freely, fully and authentically.
One to One Somatic Psychotherapy can enrich meditation practice and provide individual support for integrating experiences with other dance modalities.  I currently offer only short term work (up to 6 sessions) as am taking a sabbatical from July 2020.
As a registered Dance Movement Psychotherapist with the Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapy UK since 2003, I adhere to high ethical and professional standards, and approach each therapeutic relationship with care and respect for each persons unfolding.
As a female of Indian, moslem heritage I am also a member of  BAATN, The Black and Asian Therapists Network, and am in ongoing enquiry of, and respectful of race and diversity issues.
