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.
