Movement therapy simply means using movement to heal. It can help you if you:
have been dealing with long term pain and want to be free of it
are recovering from an accident, illness, surgery or traumatic event
are dealing with a chronic condition and want to focus on what you CAN do
don't like your body and try to hide it or cover it up to feel better
want trauma sensitive support to rebuilding your body awareness and movement choices
have, or have had, an eating disorder & want to take a yoga based approach to recovery
are fed up going round the houses chasing symptoms and still feel in the same cycle
You're way more than 'just' a body to me. You are not your symptoms. I see you and I am interested in what makes you you - truly you. That's the person that I want you to get back to and that's what we focus on.
I have a tool kit of many different movement practices to draw from gathered in over 20 years as a movement practitioner. It ranges from yoga, pilates, and somatic movement through to functional and sports / activity specific ones.
We might take a pragmatic practical approach by creating a programme of movements and progressing forward around this structure. Our sessions might be more experiential, allowing the 'work' to embody itself during the session and taking away changes in feelings, thoughts and perspective. It'll be what makes most sense to you!
