'Are you ready to say "YES" to life?'
Can you imagine a life where sexuality wasn't just what you did in bed, but was your entire creative aliveness?
In this wider sense, our sexuality underpins so much of how we are and what we attract and allow into our lives...
Given the uniqueness of each of us, it isn’t surprising that one of the greatest challenges and opportunities as we move through life is to inhabit our own individuality and to discover which life-forms best express it.
My work reflects many years of self inquiry and radiates a compassionate, deep understanding of personality and essence, embodied during my 10 years as a Transpersonal psychotherapist, allowing people to deeply explore both their inner and outer relationships.
In self-discovery we soon grow out of the conditioned way of believing everything we were told...we begin to see with new eyes.
'Once you start to awaken, no one can ever claim you again for the old patterns. Now you realise how precious your time here is. You are no longer willing to squander your essence on undertakings that do not nourish your true self; your patience grows thin with tired talk and dead language. You see through the rosters of expectation which promise you safety and the confirmation of your outer identity. Now you are impatient for growth, willing to put yourself in the way of change. You want your work to become an expression of your gift. You want your relationship to voyage beyond the pallid frontiers to where the danger of transformation dwells. You want your God to be wild and to call you to where your destiny awaits.' ~John O'Donohue
Whether you are seeking intimacy coaching, or a deeper look within, one to one session work can change your life in ways that you never thought were possible.
Often, people blame the outside circumstances of their lives. In order for transformation to occur and be reflected in our outer experience, it is necessary to explore beneath the 'surface' of our behaviours, beliefs and patterns to get a clearer picture of how our life is shaped. When you are willing to look deeper than the surface, only then is real change and empowerment of the self possible. This is the process of becoming conscious and living a deeper life.
Sessions can help you find clarity, direction and emotional freedom. By freeing you from sabotaging inner patterns and beliefs, life creates new ways to help you move forward, make better choices and create a more fulfilling life for yourself.
Early cultural and familial messages cause us to develop, to some degree, a false self. This false self helped us gain acceptance from others but at the cost of our own authentic needs and desires. Our culture's fixation on competition and comparison, are all the false selves trying to feel good about themselves. But it doesn't really work! When we know...who we Truly are...competition and comparison falls away. No need to compare yourself to anyone. Perhaps you feel an internal calling towards shedding these illusory confinements? Sessions can lead to an unraveling of the 'misunderstandings' that make up the patterns and strategies of the self.
“What does living come down to but bringing about those changes in ourselves … which can free us to enjoy a richness and closeness with everyone?” ~Rilke
Maturity involves a loosening and dissolving of the false self and discovering our authentic self, separating out our true needs and wants from the fake ones we took on in order to survive. The wisdom of our own healing and growth lies within each one of us. By exploring our inner landscape, an alchemy takes place; our senses become clear when we know our own selves, intimately and specifically. and our relationship to the world and to ourselves shifts and true intimacy becomes possible.
Sessions can center around the following themes:
- Healing Sexual Shame
- Healing Trauma
- Finding Life’s Meaning
- Healing Co-Dependency
- Bring Clarity and Understanding to Love, Intimacy and Relationship
- Radical Intimacy Groups and Workshops
- Supervision for Practitioners*
*I offer one to one professional support and supervision to therapists, psychosexual bodyworkers and Tantra practitioners.
The collective name for my work, Transpersonal Somatics, is shaped and informed by nearly 30 years as a trainer, therapist and coach, and is a model that includes the sexuality as a natural part of the intrinsic whole. Sometimes sexuality is a particular focus, sometimes not. I draw from an integrative tool-kit of modalities, including:
- Holistic, Body-based Psychotherapy and Counselling
- Hakomi Therapy - a system of body-centered psychotherapy which is based on the
- principles of mindfulness, nonviolence, and the unity of mind and body.
- Gestalt Therapy
- Tantric Shiatsu (Tantsu), Conscious Touch Bodywork (incorporating Reiki)
- Processwork Psychology/Integrating polarities
- Bioenergetics techniques
- Venting and other forms of emotional exploration
- Guided meditation
- Transpersonal journeying
- Radical Intimacy Groups and Workshops
I also offer Conscious Touch bodywork: experience the intimacy of whole body holding with a Tantric Shiatsu treatment. Here's what one client says "This extraordinary treatment is something I have been looking to experience what feels like my whole life. It takes place in baby-like 'cradles', and stretches and realigns the body. It feels gloriously liberating, as long as you don't mind being cuddled in the arms of a stranger!"
"By dropping deep into your body, you will discover your true essence, which has nothing to do with your external appearance"
