Ms Anne de Silva

Somatic Psychotherapist

Anne de Silva

Anne creates a healing space where individuals, couples and parents can reduce reactivity and rediscover the open, compassionate, strong, loving self that lies at the heart of each of us. Change is possible when our innate impulse to grow and connect is harnessed, and we discover a more grounded, conscious way of living and relating. Anne works from a deep professional and personal understanding and interest in contemporary relationships and the gifts and challenges of parenting.

    Background

    Since starting my own healing journey at the tender age of 21, the joys and challenges of family, loss, work and relationship have been my training ground. I am strongly influenced by Hakomi mindful somatic psychotherapy, movement practice, conscious parenting approaches, experiential and play-based learning, mindful sexuality and somatic meditation. I work with individuals and groups in a trauma-informed way.
