Diarmid Baillie. MA. Hakomi Practitioner. Somatic Psychotherapist.
With the Hakomi Method I help people to make discoveries about themselves that can free them from painful and limiting emotions and mindsets, allowing for more calm, ease, satisfaction and effectiveness in daily life.
By supporting you to mindfully investigate your utterly unique present experience, I can help you reveal to yourself directly the patterns that organise and limit your experience. Once these are brought to awareness you can consciously choose new responses and have new, more nourishing experiences.
I know from my own experience that accessing deep and sometimes painful parts of ourselves can be scary and requires a sensitive, compassionate companion to ease the way. I’d like to help you find the safety to trust that what arises within you is a source of growth, potentially leading you to a deeper connection to yourself and the people in your life and to a richer sense of choice and possibility in the world.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training as a therapist began in 1998, studying for a masters MA in Counselling Psychology with a concentration in Somatics. This involved learning from a broad range of embodied approaches for supporting mental health.
The Hakomi Method of mindfulness-based assisted self discovery was my favourite of these approaches. I subsequently became fully trained in this method and became a Certified Hakomi Practitioner in 2006.
I currently have a private practice based in Edinburgh.
