Treating your whole self
What is this and is it right for ME?
Body, mind, and emotions are inseparable, somatic therapy treats your whole self using a combination of touch and talk therapy.
What can this help ME with? If you answer YES to anything below, this therapy can help you.
Do you want more confidence in yourself, do ever feel unseen?
Are you taking more care of others, than of yourself?
Do you need to set up boundaries but struggle with it?
Do you struggle managing some emotions? - Do you hate to cry, or hate conflict?
Would you like to live more mindfully?
Do you need help letting go of trauma?
Do you feel stuck, trapped or uninspired often?
Do you have panic attacks or panic in certian situations?
Are you having difficulty handling stress, anxiety, or change?
Do you want to improve relationships with yourself and with others?
Is there a chronic or reoccurring pain that you suffer from?
Is sex painful? Do you have an estranged relationship with sexuality?
Is this like Reiki or Homeopathy?
No, this is based in bodywork, emotional work, somatic experiencing and present talk therapy practices. Clients are allowed to surface and sessions are cooperative and creative.
Everyone can benefit from getting to know themselves better. Our goal is to explore dysfunctional and beneficial habits, beliefs, holding patterns, physical pain, emotional handling, limitations and possibilities of change and improvement.

Okay I am interested..
How it works and what to expect.
All sessions are fully clothed - both seated and laying on a padded table.
With the combination of touch and talk we incorporate not just the thinking mind, but the subconscious, sense of self and the emotions within. This therapy is very collaborative, self realizing and self actualizing. Touch makes this a therapy you really feel.
One possible process for; Feeling stuck
We locate where that sense of stuck is, it could be in your head, your shoulders, your heart, your legs, your life, anywhere. I will make gentle contact with that area, close to it, or simply support you with my hands. Touch raises awareness so we can really focus on this sense of stuck. We determine if it's coming from inside, or outside? Are you feeling stuck yourself or something is externally making you feel stuck? A job, a relationship, an old belief system? We engage with this directly with Gestalt Talk Therapy, I support and guide you to really get to know this 'stuck' - it could be stuck by guilt, stuck because you feel unfulfilled in life, stuck because you used to run and now you don't anymore, the possibilities and ANSWERS are endless because they are your own.
'Stuck' could be many things and this is just one example, but once we have a greater understanding of what surfaces, we can make active choices to change, improve, or be rid of them.
