When we learn to listen to the body, memories, emotions, and sensations rise up into consciousness. Mindfulness, movement, breath, and sound can give shape to these experiences, allowing them to sequence through, transform and work their medicine in the psyche. I believe that this process is at the heart of our human generativity, creativity, wellness, and power.
I support my individual clients, through personalised counselling and mentorship, to become ever more receptive to the intelligence and creativity of their embodied selves, and to develop the confidence and self-expression to bring that fullness into their lives and group cultures.
I support my Mentoring clients to integrate Body-Informed practices into all areas of life in order to cultivate presence, improve performance, build collaborative capacity, and to enhance creativity, self-expression, self-awareness, and self-confidence.
I offer individual body- and movement-based psychotherapy to young adults and adults. My private practice is based in Totnes, Devon, England; however, I occasionally see clients online (depending on their needs). My individual work draws from Authentic Movement, Attachment, neuroscientific and psychodynamic frameworks to allow my clients to make contact with personal material and to sequence it through in a way that is safe, body-centered, and enriching.
I am sensitive to the particular needs and goals of each client. My way of working is sometimes focused on skill-building and self-awareness, and at other times is more focused on providing specialized support to move through complex psychological and emotional terrain. At all times, I see myself as a partner, witness, and support to my clients’ own inner journey and process.
