My Approach

In order to support the co-creation of a therapeutic relationship or therapeutic alliance with my clients, I utilise a combination of verbal and non-verbal methods, which I have acquired from the different body-oriented psychotherapy and psychomotor therapy modalities I have studied.

The therapeutic space I evolve in with my clients is protected by full confidentiality and is governed by the UKCP & LSBP codes of ethics and practice.

A Typical Session

In my consultations Body Psychotherapy teams up with Physiotherapy.
My sessions are 1 hour long and are priced at £60 per hour.
They are held in my private studio in central London.

The primary focus of all my sessions is to stimulate and highlight my client’s awareness of their autonomic nervous system (ANS). This almighty branch of the central nervous system works regardless of our desire and regulates, among other things, our heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, and digestion.

I have come to observe that the combination of physical treatments and verbal expression may also promote spontaneous breath releases, also known as ‘dynamic moments.’ These will ultimately have a beneficial effect on my client’s Cardiac Vagal Tone (physiological index of stress) and, according to ‘The Polyvagal Theory’ (2011), it will promote a healthier mind and heart.

Dr Stephen Porges’s decades of research on the behavioural neurobiology of emotions, affect regulation, interpersonal social behaviour, and other psychological processes that describe basic human experiences, has startling implications for the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, and autism. It has certainly helped me to understand the way my ANS mediates my social engagement, trust, and intimacy.

I use a stethoscope, as my trusted monitor during most of my attuned touch/massage sequences. In those sessions, the sounds released by my stethoscope seem to have the effect of an invitation for my clients, in their own time, to connect with their deep-seated emotions and innate sense of wellbeing.

The more structured postural observations, muscle palpations, bodily interviews and mobilisation exercises will be used to assist with the rebuilding of my clients’ motoric and sensory egos.

Through Biodynamic vegetotherapy sessions I guide my clients into altered states of consciousness, to promote their self-regulation and possibly liberate a lighter energy into archetypal, orgonomic, or transcendental experiences. This is based on the principle that the client releases energy that had been impeded or repressed. Accompanied by a specific ‘therapeutic presence’, which offers unconditional acceptance and attendance to those involuntary and spontaneous manifestations of my client’s organism, that unbound energy becomes reintegrated into their circulation, at the muscular and vegetative levels, as well as the psychological.

Mindfulness informs all of my sessions. With a mindful stance, I deliberately direct my own attention and that of my clients to the details of the here and now internal experiences. I aim to promote an attitude of acceptance and intense curiosity about what we observe, rather than a desire to change or interpret it. Learning to be mindful – that is to be consciously aware of one’s experience whilst it is taking place – allows my clients to make effective use of their body, rather than find that its sensations are either overwhelming or inaccessible. Guided meditations are a powerful take-home tool that I suggest my clients use on their quest towards self-regulation and independent well-being. It helps my clients to turn inwards, to focus, to breathe and to enter into resonance with their core energy. It is also a way to reconnect with their pulsation and to find peace.
