My Work

My work is to listen, to witness and guide you in finding your own pathway. As we work together we create a potent space, where your body can express the stories it is holding, what ‘it’ would like to share, to be seen, to be witnessed, to be deeply listened to.
The threads that come may be carried in your blood and bone, from your ancestors; they may form part of your life story or it might be something that you had no idea was still with you. You may already know it well or it might be from an early part of your life. There might be a traumatic event that has shaped your life path as well as your body’s reactions to circumstances and stressful situations around you, equally it may be something completely random!
The places it may be anchored, stored, or reside vary – often we orient around an Element form ancient Chinese Medicine or one of the vessels or meridians in the body, it might be a physical part, an emotion or some other aspect of yourself.

Through deep witnessing and listening, gathering the story, resourcing and settling any part of you that needs it we begin to release, balance and find the space to rest back into the deeper part of yourself. In this way you may find resources that in turn create space and freedom.

Into this space, alongside the mystery and stories you carry,
we weave the threads of a new story, spun from your history and
allowing bits to be unpicked as needed and woven anew….
bringing in different colours, textures and words, themes and senses, seasons and elements.

This allows your felt sense, your deep inner knowing to continue evolving, to continue informing all those parts of you to help them take a new shape, a new place, to see things from a different place and to step with confidence along the ways that open before you.

Presently my books are closed for new clients until at least October, if you would like a discovery call to be put on my wait list please do go ahead.

Listening deeply to your body, all parts of you, I pay attention and hold you gently, giving you the safety to explore what needs to be seen.
Quietly, softly, steadily, step by step we encourage all those parts of you to unfold.

We gather information by listening to your felt sense, by words or images, and by the skills of my perception.
I am able to traverse the unseen layers, the hidden depths, whilst coming from a place of unattached curiosity, with deep respect for the life you have lived.

Always coming back to what will bring you more clearly and strongly rooted in your body; what brings you into a stronger and clearer relationship with Earth.
In this way you may really step into more of yourself, bringing your skills and talents to the fore so you can step deeper into your path.

Slowly, together we will begin to soften the place and parts of you that are holding on, moving only at the pace of your quietest and slowest part

I had the honour of being on two awesome podcasts recently. All That We Are with Amisha Ghadiali, a wide ranging conversation covering different landscapes, and Life – An Inside Job, with Kate Codrington, talking about sensitivity, menopause and peri-menopause.
The are both brilliant hosts and I recommend both of them, you can find the episodes below.

ChaNan Bonser on Sensitivity, Deep Listening and Imagination – E183 all that we are with amisha ghadiali (fka the future is beautiful)

How do we embrace our bodies as sensuous landscapes flourishing with the seasons? In this episode Amisha talks with ChaNan Bonser, a healer, teacher and creative, who’s practice is catering to the highly sensitive amongst us. Her work is rooted in the cycles of the seasons and in ecological imagination practices that help us flourish resilience and robustness whilst harnessing our sensitivity as a superpower. ChaNan shares insights into her practice and the superpower of being a highly sensitive person in a fractured world. She reveals that the ways we tend to ourselves is the way we tend to Earth, and that we experience our wholeness and forge change by embracing slowness, fully listening to our bodies and honouring our interconnectedness with Earth. We explore :: how we can use imagination and dreams to understand our bodies as sensuous landscapes to embody our interconnection with nature and ecologies :: the idea of our biomes as fluid identities :: harnessing our gifts of sensitivity and HSP’s perspectives as life’s superpower :: integrating plant medicines & sugars as prosperous substances & sacraments :: how we can understand our cravings as a longing for the Earth to hold us :: ecological imagination practices for regulating our nervous systems and auric fields Links from this episode and more at allthatweare.org

ChaNan’s creative and intuitive way of working has been life changing for me. I had been looking for ages for exactly what she offers, which elevated my own work, peace of mind, balance, and focus and has been thoroughly transformative.
