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! I call this “tracking” the body… listening quietly to this space between us to help guide you deeper into the spaces and the crunchy bits to help you find your own unique pathway through whatever it is you are bringing to the session.

Within this my key orientation is to the Seasons and the ancient system of Five Elements with its exquisite understanding of energy pathways and doorways, and how the seasons of Earth interact with us through all our body processes, moment to moment, and month to month. The Five Elements are a beautiful and eloquent way of tracking into the vessels – energy pathways in the body, to see how the hologram of your body is reflective of the natural world, the seasons and what it needs to bring balance and harmony.
It is a deep, gentle and slow approach, I liken it to the slow food movement, we attend to the soil, the seed, the weeding, the growth and fertilisation, the pruning, the harvesting and storing before we consider how to cook the meal… however, sometime we may also eat straight from the garden!!

To this work I bring my advanced training in Creative Kinesiology which helps to witness the body somatically, in a way that lets us to explore our symptoms, to gently get into the root of an issue. This in itself may bring release, giving us more space so we can become more embodied in our sense of self as well as our physical bodies. I have found that when we discover the cause of our symptoms, why they have originated and where they are rooted, we have the pieces of the jigsaw we need for healing to take place. 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.

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.

Into this space, alongside the mystery and stories you carry,
we weave new threads, spun from your history
allowing bits to be unpicked as needed and woven anew….
bringing in fresh colours, ancient textures, words from afar,
opening your senses to the seasons and elements
that exist in you

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 these parts of you to unfurl, unfold and turn towards your heart.

We gather information by listening to your felt sense, by words and images, and by the skills of my perception.
Together we 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 returning to what will bring you to be more clearly and deeply rooted in your body; what brings you to an understanding of your landscape within Earth.
In this way you may come more into 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 some awesome podcasts with brilliant hosts, I recommend them in general they are well worth a listen and a follow.
