Each of us has an innate inner impulse moving us toward well-being. I support this natural process which can be accessed through an inner awareness; our felt sense. Connecting with our essential instinctual self helps us resolve residual stress and trauma. As stress is reduced & trauma renegotiated we have the capacity to live the life we imagined
What holds my curiosity are the unresolved issues illuminating themselves through our physical being. These are the untold expressions waiting for just the right conditions and support to be explored; therapy. Unfelt & unresolved experiences show up as symptoms in our everyday life, hindering us living in the fullness of ourselves.
Sessions with me are mostly talk based, with a focus on bodily sensations. Sensations are the language of the body. It's the language of our instinctual self. We get as curious as we can about what you are experiencing and I will often ask you to notice your physical sensations. Consciously utilising and arousing our deep physiological resources offers us a greater choice in how we respond to the stresses and strains of life.
Gestalt, Somatic Experiencing®
Being a Somatic practitioner, I listen to the bodies wisdom, essentially working with curiosity and presence to allow the body to show me what it needs in terms of restoring you to wholeness.
Events of the past (trauma) have a body memory and can continue to impact us and how we are in the world today. Bringing focused attention to bodily sensations (felt sense) can help expand our tolerance of sensations which help us trust the innate wisdom of our bodies. As we become familiar with our felt sense we begin to distinguish different sensations, increasing capacity for greater self-regulation.
Through somatic counselling and psychotherapy's gentle body-mind orientated approach, movement toward increasing capacity for life, well-being and connection is possible.
I love learning, especially I love learning from the inside out. Experiential workshops being a favourite. Ongoing supervision supports my continued growth as a therapist as does personal therapy. Each of these supports the embodiment of all my learnings.
