Grounded in the neuroscience of relational psychotherapy, Hakomi focuses a compassionate lens on the areas where we all struggle – the unmet needs, the unhealed wounds, unresolved traumas, suppressed truths and disrupted boundaries that emerge when we believe ourselves to be inherently lacking or wrong in some way
Instead, we explore what gets in the way and stops us turning up for ourselves with acceptance and presence.. Together we rebuild trust, respect, safety, openness and connection so that you can open those doors with curiosity to explore the endless possibilities that exist for you.
Come join me in unraveling the parts of you that keep you stuck
By investigating habitual cues from the body, the Hakomi approach quiets mental static to discover what’s beneath repetitive storylines. So much can shift, expand, and grow when we
· take time to listen to ourselves,
· give voice to our inner thoughts,
· know that we have a skillful guide to support us on this journey
It respects the wisdom of the body and its instinctive ways of responding to trauma, anxiety and stress and recognises the importance of allowing the process to unfold at its own pace; moving forward as you are ready.
Often, we’ve lost connection with who we truly are, at our core, instead of doing the healing work we try to manage the pain of our experience.
We develop ways to cope – some helpful, some not. This can lead us into harsh judgment, needless anxiety and lack of self-worth.
Whether it’s a past trauma, niggling anxiety or you feel like life is spinning out of control, this work will help you put the pieces of your life together as you find your way home.
Unshakeable. Unbroken. Powerfully You
Our work together will be “experiential” with a focus on what is happening for you in the “here-and-now” of our session. We will tap into the wisdom held in your body and the power of mindful self awareness, a practice that builds bridges in different parts of the brain, allowing for new possibilities in emotional patterns and access to new choices.
The focus of our collaborative sessions will be on:
· engaging and shifting core beliefs
· finding both ease and aliveness,
· connecting with your existing tools and building new resources,
· designing the life you want now.
Working with me will include periods of tuning in to sensations and emotions, mindful reflection, active inquiry, and working with the present to understand and heal the past.
I offer a safe, non-judgmental space to explore and unlock the story held in your body, so you can show up in your life more meaningfully and powerfully.
