Working together in a therapeutic process, we will explore the connection between mind and body. For instance, we may use movement. Certainly, we will engage in some creative process, if that works for you. I work in person centred framework, with a humanistic integrative approach. That is to say, I consciously draw on different therapeutic models as we work together. The process may at times include rhythm or movement patterns and shapes as we pay attention to non-verbal and verbal communication.
Our sessions will allow you to move, if you wish, and to go with the flow of what you are feeling and experiencing. In today’s world we are encouraged to be mindful. Often this is associated with remaining quiet. I will encourage mindfulness, but not necessarily stillness. In other words, I will encourage you to notice body issues and to process them. In this way we can address many concepts. These may include anger, self esteem and depression, but there are many more.
The connection between mind and body is fundamental to my work. Therefore, I have a deep understanding of the embodied aspects of psyche and soma. Over time, in the therapeutic process, we link body awareness with emotional awareness and creatively identify ways of adapting and living in the world.
