Core Development takes the view that symptoms that are often labelled as ‘sick’ or ‘dysfunctional’ are in many cases the opposite – they are pathways to more fulfilling lives. It can be used on its own, or as an adjunct to other modalities.
“TO MY MIND, PERSONAL PSYCHOTHERAPY IS, BY FAR, THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF PSYCHOTHERAPY TRAINING"
Irvin D Yalom
Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, Stanford University
Emotional Release, Experiential, Gestalt, Mindfulness, Somatic Psychotherapy
I have learnt that the symptoms of stress, when listened to and understood, are the key to a richer, healthier and more fulfilling life.
They are like the instrument panel in an aircraft, constantly providing us with information that is vital to keep us on the right track.
Responding appropriately to the early signals of stress and any form of discomfort or distress enables us to constantly enrich our lives.
If we ignore these signals or try to make them go away without dealing with their causes, however, we can end up with serious ill consequences to our overall health and wellbeing.

Ethical practice of psychotherapy requires both theoretical training and actual experience of the process.
As a somatic psychotherapist, I won’t be asking you to try anything that I haven’t experienced myself.
I believe that one’s own personal therapy is an essential part of any serious training in counselling and psychotherapy.
I studied Developmental Psychology at Padova University in Italy, trained for several years with some of the leading pioneers in Somatic Psychotherapy & Developing Human Potential in Europe & America, & presented at National and International Conferences in Australia and Europe.
My primary training is a 4-year(2000 hours face-to-face)) Course in Biodynamic (Somatic) Psychotherapy with Gerda Boyesen, Supervision in Biosynthesis (also a method of Somatic Psychotherapy) over a 4-year period with David Boadella, and training in the Fundamentals of Structural Consulting over a 2-year period with Robert Fritz.
I also draw on my experience of Gestalt & other modalities, and on my own personal therapy and life experience.

If your attempts to overcome stress have so far not been successful, perhaps it's time to try a different approach.
SOMATIC PSYCHOTHERAPY IS ABOUT BEING NOT DOING.
IF WE ARE AFRAID OF BEING, OF LIFE, WE CAN MASK THIS FEAR BY INCREASING OUR DOING.
