working with me

Somatic Guidance

We begin with a complimentary 30-minute call to give you an idea of how I work with the body, breath and mind. Thereafter, sessions are 60 minutes long.

Sessions are personalised to suit individual needs, with the intention of regulating the nervous system and recalibrating to the present moment. 

Mindful movement and meditation practices improve clarity of thinking and bring you into more wakeful presence. Regular sessions will help to hold you accountable for consistent practice and integration of the methods in daily life. 

 

Sessions involve guidance through movement, breathing exercises, and meditations based on Chinese medicine and Zen tradition. 

No movement or meditation experience is necessary.

Deep-dive mentoring

These sessions are more in-depth, for those wishing to explore and identify patterns that may be subconsciously informing behaviour.

We begin with a complimentary 30-minute consultation to identify core issues and discuss how sessions run. 

 

Thereafter, sessions are 90 minutes long. I suggest committing to at least 3~4 sessions initially, and you can book one-off sessions when you feel guided in the future.  

In bringing awareness to this conditioning, in conjunction with somatic guidance, we can help to introduce new patterning that is informed by a more empowered narrative. 

Healing is a continuous practice. I offer the space and the tools that will help you remain aware of your triggers, thoughts and feelings.

 

We all need sustained commitment and support to hold us accountable to this process.
