About me

Body Psychotherapy is a holistic form of psychotherapy which naturally incorporates the body within the psychotherapeutic process.

Our life experiences are experienced in the mind, and also felt, sensed and held in our bodies.

As in other forms of psychotherapy, we work together to understand and therapeutically work through the issues you face.

Together, we explore your skills and talents that you can utilise and explore the ability and capacity to heal, develop self-awareness and open the way for new modes of being.

This can happen through reflective talking, awareness of relational dynamics, Biodynamic therapeutic Massage, exercises in body awareness and movements, images and other ‘self-evolving’ methods, in a safe and confidential space.

The support, growth and transformation occur through the quality of the relationship we form together.

Sessions are usually 50 minutes long and are weekly on the same day same time for a period we mutually agreed upon.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
