This work is for you when
you feel "stuck" and tired of unhealthy repetitive patterns.
you feel the urge to change your current work/relationship/living situation and you don't know how.
you are in a life transition (midlife/menopause/separation etc) and you need a clear and warm-hearted support in your process.
you want to learn tools to develop an embodied and loving connection with yourself and others.
you wish to establish or maintain a regular spiritual practice.
How I work
My therapeutic approach is using the immediate embodied experience and creative tools to meet and explore whatever arises with respect and compassionate presence.
During a session I will guide you to inquire gently into your felt experience. Body knowledge reveals deep insights into complex connections – old belief systems and ideas about ourselves become visible.
Frozen emotions and unhealthy patterns of behaviour can be released, which has an immediate effect on our lived experience.
Establishing an intimate contact with your body and mind helps you to develop a direct, authentic connection with yourself and others and to meet life with more ease and joy.
Through Mindfulness and Self-Compassion you become aware of your needs and to learn to give yourself what you are deeply longing for.
Why using Creative Tools?
Sometimes we have no words for our feelings and suffering.
There are moments when our inner experience can be expressed more easily through creative methods like colours, materials, movement and music.
This enables a new approach to the body and the emotions.
Complex connections become visible, the perspective expands and new possibilities for action are opening up. The lived experiences during the therapeutic process can then be transferred into everyday life.
You do not need any previous knowledge of painting or artistic skills.
Why use Embodiment in Therapy?
In painful life situations we usually give a lot of attention to thoughts and stories about ourselves and others. We might feel overwhelmed by feelings, or we become disconnected and shut down.
Every emotion and every thought has a resonance in the body and every experience leaves an "imprint" in our system. For this reason, physical sensations, reactions and feelings can still appear long after an event has occurred. Navigating safely through our physical experiences can enable us to shift the tracks of our nervous systems and transform challenging emotions.
