Body-oriented therapy

Embrace life with all its challenges

Our bodies are our tools to feel, move, express and live. They hold information about our daily well-being.

 

We do not only experience life through thoughts, but also through our bodies. When we tend to go off course it is often because have learned to ignore the signals our bodies give out. It has become clear to me over the years that loving my body and really listening to what it has to say, directly improves my quality of life.

In therapy, the body is a vital tool to work with. In the sessions, space will be held for you to welcome whatever arises in the moment.

 

The sessions are experiential, as opposed to conventional 'talking' therapy, although we will work with both body and mind. During the sessions, the work we do will be inspired by Core Energetics, Polyvagal theory, breathwork and more.

The sessions are intuitive and might include:

  • Physical exercises

  • Constellation 

  • Self-massage of specific muscles 

  • Breathing exercises 

  • Cathartic experiences

  • Nonverbal vocalizations

  • Journaling

  • Dance

We will start the therapy with an intake session. In this session, we will get to know each other personally and we will go through an intake form completed by you, followed by a body reading. After we both feel we would like to continue working together I will ask for a commitment to five sessions after which we will evaluate if this is your path to continue. The commitment is meant as an intention (not a contract) as this is the amount of time needed to notice and evaluate the impact of the therapy.
