Heart Place Body Therapy consultations are nervous system informed. Responding to your needs and interests or 'healing flow' together we listen to what pathway your body-mind would like to follow. We discover your 'healing map'.
Healing is viewed as an ongoing process or the bodies natural capacity for regulation and integration that can become overwhelmed. We move gently at your pace, with awareness and intention. Where necessary in consultation with your psychologist or trauma counsellor.
All consultations draw from somatic based practices, embodiment practices, yoga, mindful movement, trauma informed mindfulness, heartflow and mindful touch to find your unique pathway to greater ease, regulation, balance and calm.
Sessions are for individuals interested in deepening sense of connection with and getting to know 'yourself' for self caring, building resilience and a practical understanding of how your nervous system works.
Through befriending stress, and becoming a compassionate listener of our inner landscape we become more grounded in a loving relationship with ourselves. We learn to befriend where we may be in a habit of being a harsh inner critic.
Through regular practice and finding what practices work for us we can strengthen our capacity for regulation, grounding, focus, rest, integration and play. We discover or deepen sense of place, meaning and purpose. Consultations follow the 4 steps of self-care.
