Somatic coaching releases old patterns and enables personal growth by reconnecting you with your body and its resources. Working with your body, which means your body and your mind, using my verbal guidance, I teach you to let go of automatic patterns of tension that no longer serve you, which will enable you to accomplish what you want in your life today. What served us well in our past, limits us now, preventing us from living freely and fully. As children, we quickly learnt how to survive the challenging environments in which we found ourselves. We learnt from the moods of our parents and teachers and the atmospheres they created, and adapted our behaviour accordingly. In addition, we drew conclusions about ourselves and other people from these early experiences. Through repetition, these adaptions and conclusions result in automatic patterns of tension and holding in the body, which can cause pain, ill health and restricted experience in later life. My work with clients focuses on firstly teaching you to develop your body attention, through working with your body attention, breath and movement. Then, I will teach you, again through your body, where your old patterns reside, how to stop these and to let your body move freely, allowing energy that was stuck to flow and move, to expand and create more openness. This work can be undertaken lying down, sitting and standing. Shifting these energy blocks enables physical aches and pains to resolve and the held-down emotions to surface and move freely. This creates space for the new to come in – new ways of moving in your body, of doing everyday things, viewing situations, relating with others. Then new opportunities arrive which can be met from this place of freshness and energy, with more ease and satisfaction. Clients tell me that they discover they have resources and qualities that surprise them: for example, more clarity and confidence, silence and ease, energy and determination, closeness with others, the ability to express themselves, and the capacity to experience deep rest. These are the gifts that your body can bring you when you choose to work in a Somatic Coaching learning process.

What do you love most about your job?

I love working with people to help them overcome the blocks to achieving their potential and leading their life fully. By becoming more connected to their body, they can learn how to stop the habits and patterns which are holding them back, find more energy, creativity, confidence and ease. This is such a worthwhile thing to be doing, to make a difference to someone's life in this way,

What inspired you to start your own business?

I worked in the corporate sector for many years, and felt the need to work in a way that better met my needs and enables me to support individuals more effectively. I participated in a Somatic Coaching learning process and was so impressed with the results, shifting things that years of psychotherapy had been unable to change, that I decided to train in this approach myself, so that I could offer it to other people.

Why should our clients choose you?

Each client is an individual, with their hopes and dreams, their past and present. My role is to listen well and understand what you want to achieve and to develop and implement a learning strategy that will help you to do this, by working through your body. During the work, we will become partners, as we both learn about your body and how it is shaping your life, and how to stop this so that you can live more freely and fully. Although this is highly serious work, I bring a quality of play and humour to it, as well as empathy and concern. I ask that you bring yourself fully to the process, as without this, it can not be the success that you want for yourself.

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the therapist holds.

This will depend on where you live, what level of training your therapist has and what they specialise in (whether they are a counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist) and also how many years of working experience they have.

Your professional therapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted therapist today.

You need to devote some time to finding the right therapist as the connection you have with your therapist is essential. You need someone who you can trust, someone you feel comfortable talking to about difficult subjects and intimate secrets, someone who will be a partner in your recovery. Therapy will not be effective unless you have this bond, so take some time in the beginning to find the right person.

It is worth talking to a few potential therapists and asking questions. Therapists also have special areas of focus, such as depression or eating disorders. For some issues, such as trauma or PTSD, seeing a specialist is absolutely essential.

Everyone’s treatment is different. How long your therapy lasts depends on many factors.

You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your trusted Bark therapist.

Professional counsellor training takes three to five years and can be a diploma or degree level. Qualification requires a minimum number of client hours acquired through a work placement.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their therapy.

Therapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. Or it can help with an upsetting physical health condition such as infertility, a difficult life event such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown. It can also be used to tackle difficult emotions such as low self-esteem, anger or sexual identity issues. Therapists also offer couples therapy. Therapists can also help with anxiety issues deriving from the coronavirus.

Absolutely! Many therapists offer sessions over the phone or through an online video chat platform, so you can have a session from the comfort of your own home - all you need is a strong internet connection and you're good to go.
