How I work
My approach is centered around you and your unique journey towards healing and self-discovery.
Together, we will explore the intricate interplay of your emotions and your body, as I believe in the transformative power of connecting with both.
Our sessions are designed to be exploratory, providing a safe space for you to delve into your experiences. I want you to know that I am here to support and guide you, but I recognize that true healing comes from within. I do not see myself as a healer, I don’t fix things. Because you are not broken. Instead, I am dedicated to helping you reconnect with yourself, your body, and ultimately, the world around you.
Restoring the connection with yourself is my primary goal. To achieve this, I invite you to explore and deepen your relationship with your body. I approach this process with genuine curiosity and a non-judgmental attitude. If you find it challenging to connect with your body or struggle to feel its presence, that’s fine. We will explore that together. Societal pressures can often make us feel like we need to perform or meet certain expectations, and I want to create a space where you can simply be yourself without judgment.
What to expect?
After an intake conversation and a cup of tea, we move into bodywork. This could be standing up, moving through the room or laying down on the massage table. I will encourage you to take a moment to notice how you're experiencing that present moment in your body. Your body may feel relaxed and at ease. However, it's also possible that you may sense tension, pain, nervousness, or even fear. I want you to know that whatever you're feeling is valid and accepted. By inviting you to simply notice without any pressure to act or change, I hope to provide you with a sense of relief and freedom to be authentically yourself.
In addition to increasing your body awareness, I would also like you to experience your body as a unified whole. Sometimes, we may notice that certain body parts feel disconnected or neglected. In these instances, I may gently guide your attention to those areas, allowing you to feel the connection throughout your entire being. Through different massage techniques such as deep tissue work, movement techniques and other forms of massage inspired by Esalen and Trager, I aim to facilitate the integration of all your body parts, enhancing your overall sense of wholeness.
While my approach encompasses the relationship between cognition, emotions, and the body, I always prioritize the body as the starting point.
Remember, in our sessions, everything you think, feel, and sense is welcome. There are no expectations, no right or wrong. I am here to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental space where you can authentically explore and rediscover yourself. Together, we will navigate the path of healing and restoration, one step at a time.
