Movement Therapy

Movement therapy helps you reconnect with your body and regain trust and ownership of your feelings, experiences and needs. We approach our sessions with sensitivity and create a safe, predictable space from which we can enquire compassionately. We keep your personal challenges in mind during our sessions together.

We are not focused on form, technique or style. This is not about what the movements look like, but about how you experience them and how your nervous system responds to movement suggestions. I am guided by you and we go at the pace that you are comfortable with. 

I draw from various practices (yoga, breath, somatics, body awareness therapy, feldenkrais, pilates) but the blend is very much focused towards what your body and nervous system requires. 

What to expect:

Sessions usually begin with a bit of a chat about how you are feeling in your body, how you have been since our last session (or what brings you to the session if it's your first) and anything that you specifically want us to explore together. 

 

We will then start with some gentle movement to get you comfortable and help us connect with your body. From there I will work in partnership with you to explore different ways of moving and being with your body responses with respect for your tolerance to any new experiences. At the end of the session we will have a debrief and discuss ways that this might be integrated into your daily life. 

 

I find that some people like to have regular sessions for a period of time, whereas others prefer to take a less structured approach and contact me as and when they feel they need some more input. I have no expectation of how you choose to use my support. I am always happy to have a chat with you before starting sessions to tell you more or answer your questions.
