I specialise in sandplay therapy and principles of somatic experiencing, but incorporate various modalities as it suits the client and context (e.g. person centered, gestalt, transactional analysis, REBT, solution-focused approaches, mindfulness, and with younger children especially child centered play therapy and theraplay).
I am currently pursuing the work of Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing which is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. This approach works to restore the body's innate ability to manage and cope.
In somatic psychology the client is encourged to experience the body as a resource. We work together to stay "in the moment", to sense the body's various sensations, tensions, and through finding relaxation, using breathing, or a movement, we allow inner wisdom to come to the surface.
