"While we do not know exactly what awareness 'is,' we do know that awareness is an active ingredient in every form of education and psychotherapy."

Not sure about physical / somatic work?

You are encouraged to ease into movement as you feel comfortable. By exploring your current concerns we will gradually and safely integrate broader Body-centred Therapy principles.


Not enthusiastic about talk therapy?

Sessions can start with a focus on physical wellness, such as recovering from surgery or injury, general fitness, or muscular tension or chronic pain. Somatic awareness helps bridge the mind-body connection.

Just Relax

A blissful sixty minutes of DEEP mental and physical rest

Safely supported with custom yoga props, sessions include somatic meditation, gentle movement and stretching, calming breath techniques, and a full body awareness scan. A portion of each session explores emotions and sensation to build self-compassion through guided visualization.

You will emerge feeling refreshed and deeply nurtured. Each session builds on previous ones to increase acceptance of changing emotions and control of stress responses. A great alternative to massage.

Pre-requisite: free 15-minute consultation by phone.
