Somatic Counselling


I appreciate your curiosity guiding you here. Firstly, if we choose to work together, I will take tender care to ensure you feel warmly welcome and safe to explore what you need to at your pace.  Together we will co-create a therapeutic relationship which supports your curiosity, your needs and your self-expression.  The foundations of our relationship shall be rooted in respect, care, understanding, radical kindness, and ultimately play.

Here is a link to my published article within the BACP journal exploring ethical touch in somatic therapeutic practice.   ‘This article first appeared in the January  2023 issue of Thresholds, published by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. 


Each session shall include creative and experiential embodiment practices in self-care where particular focus is paid to internal experiences, bringing them into awareness through spoken word, gesture, movement, breath, therapeutic touch (when consent is given), mark making, dream work, ancestry, archetypes, fairy tales, mythology, Walk & Talks and so on; our options are abundant. 


As I accompany you, I shall hold dual attention to the information my body receives and is communicating because it is through my body that I understand people at depth.  There will be times when I share my somatic experiences with you because they are an invaluable guidance and empathic compass for me and perhaps, my embodied insight might support you in your relationship with being bodily with increasing awareness.


Beyond sessions, it is your choice to make space for your new awareness by creating change and shifts in your life which support the treasures you have uncovered. I would like to acknowledge that you may experience resistance and together we can gently navigate this natural, sticky part of the growth process towards ease and flow.  You've been doing things a certain way for a long time &  your coping patterns have kept you safe in service to your survival, yet there is something inside which calls you here.  Perhaps it is the right time for you to live more fully, reclaiming choices towards vitality & your authentic self. 


Invitations which arise intuitively in session might feel counter-intuitive at first because they support expansion where you might habitually apply the brakes.  Together, we shall support you into growing beyond what you think your  comfort zone is towards your authentic self.



(There is no pressure or expectation for us to move from our chairs & equally there is no pressure or expectation that we shall start in our chairs, we are always in movement, even when we are still.  The session is your gift to yourself and I shall support you in what feels right for you).
