Dedicated one-to-one support for the fastest results

Individual sessions are hands-down the most effective way to relieve neuro-muscular pain and increase mobility  that I’ve ever experienced.I know this too well.  Though I was only in my early 50s’, and despite my almost daily Yoga practice, I was beginning to feel old, stiff and achy  in my body – and I really, really  didn’t like it. I also had the beginnings of a frozen shoulder and a constant ache in my lower back which I presumed was arthritis.

I had tried lots of different therapies and almost given up hope , resigning myself to enduring the pain and discomfort.

Clinical Somatics radically  changed all of this for me And that’s why I so strongly believe that it can for you too.I finally  got a glimpse of the potential for the body to remain pain-free , mobile and active as I got older.I was excited – and  very relieved.

 

 

You’ll know if this is for you if ……………

✓ You’re frustrated –  you’ve tried everything, but the pain keeps returning

✓ You’re determined to never take another pain-killer and are  looking for a way to rely on YOURSELF to feel better instead of on pills & surgery

✓ You’re starting to feel a bit-over-the-hill even though you’re not that old yet.

✓ It’s getting difficult to do the things that you love to do – even the simple things like getting up off the couch is becoming an effort.

✓ You’ve many years left in you and you want to stay as active as you possibly can so you get to enjoy them  all

✓ You’ve reached a plateau in your sport  and would love to improve your game and  move beyond your  current movement limitations.

✓ You’re recovering from surgery  and are really eager to get back on your feet in the shortest time possible

Clinical Somatics Untying the Knots

Redefining your Movement Potential

Individual sessions can  offer you way more than even my movement classes can  – not only relieving pain – but in Understanding how you may have  contributed to your pain – and how you can remain pain-free and mobile right throughout your life.

I will help you develop your awareness, expand your knowledge, and hone in on the skills you need to be successful. As part of that process, we’ll tap into the power of neuroplasticity to help you to rewire your pain and regain your lifeOnce you’ve mastered the process of working with yourself in this way, you’ll THRIVE.

Using  gentle resistance to your movement,and with heightened sensory awareness, your nervous system receives new information that allows  muscles to unwind and find a new lengthening and releasing of  the knots of tension that constrict our movement and cause pain. ( we call this process pandiculation).Your body begins to find it’s own way out of pain  –and  not just of the body but of the mind too.

I will be your guide, your teacher, your reminder to back off  when you’re trying too hard –  reminding you in such a way that your nervous system learns how to essentially let go all by itself.

 Through this effortless process we educate the muscles  to stop over-firing  until our sensory-movement brain switches back on and  remembers that there is an easier way of moving, thinking , feeling and sensing.

It’s my favourite way of releasing over-load, anxiety and painful muscular contraction.

Programme One - Hakomi Somatic Psychotherapy

We often don’t know our core deep strength so instead of doing the necessary healing work we try to manage the pain of our experience. We develop ways to cope – some helpful, some not. We self-identify with what’s broken. This leads us into harsh judgements, pushing ourselves until we’re exhausted along with needless anxiety or lack of self-worth.

Hakomi’s gentle yet powerful body-centred psychotherapeutic approach reveals, heals and transforms the beliefs and habits that may cause emotional suffering and chronic illnesses. ...... Read More

Our bodies speak to us in many different ways, they speak to us through the discomfort of tight shoulders, through the sensation of butterflies in the stomach, through the tight knot of the heart - our bodies don’t need words - our bodies have a language of its own, an expression in the muscles and the tissues that can be unlocked by a skilled therapist
