Through talking and sharing you will become aware of the issues that you find difficult in your life. As a therapist I will help you use these problems as stepping stones towards solutions and a way forward. Simply having the space to share yourself with a person who listens emphatically can be enough to gain personal insight and awareness.
The Egoscue Method
The Egoscue Method is postural therapy. With a sedentary life-style, stress and emotional tension, the body will start to develop dysfunctions, compensations and imbalances. It is then a question of time before body pain will ensue. With a series of gentle exercises and stretches your body will get a chance to work according to its original design again. You will restore balance and symmetry and pains caused by bad posture will be alleviated. With improved posture you will also experience an improvement in your emotional state of being and it is ideal as a complement to psychotherapeutic work and deep tissue massage.
You grow into a mature and responsible human being by addressing your difficulties in the here and now. Gestalt therapy is based on the simple question: How do I prevent myself from solving my own problems? I will not give you standard answers, but will help you to locate your stumbling blocks and address what you need to do to move on.
Bioenergetics is a based on the idea that blocks to emotional expression and wellness are revealed in the body as chronic tension, which is often subconscious. The blocks are treated by combining specially designed physical exercises, emotional expression and touch.
Myofascial Energetic Release
A technique developed by Satyarthi Peloquin to treat body pain. Chronic tension in connective tissue and muscles is one of the main reasons for pain in the neck, shoulders, back and pelvis. Slow, deliberate and deep massage work helps the tissue relax. The metabolism starts functioning again, the muscles can work according to their function and the rest of the body unwinds.
Body reading is based on the concept that the structure of your body has been shaped by your experiences and that it also mirrors your present feelings and attitudes. For example, with a poor self image you may try to make yourself ‘small’ by hunching your shoulders and lowering your head. By becoming aware of your postural pattern and what it communicates to you, you will learn a lot about yourself and see how behaviour and emotions mutually influence each other.
Meditation and Mindfulness
Meditation is the art of being in the moment, in a state of awareness without judgement. Once you enter this state it will feel familiar to you and you will realise that you have been there before in your life, in precious moments of happiness and being in a flow.
After going through a process of learning about yourself, emptying your mind of unnecessary beliefs and attitudes and becoming more grounded in your body, you will find it easier to meditate. There are less thoughts to cloud your mind and you will find it easier to accept your self as you are.
Through simple and ageless techniques you will learn to witness your thoughts and emotions rather than becoming lost in them. The result is more inner peace, mindfulness and happiness, as well as a greater capacity to make conscious choices in your life.
Re-entry/Applying Your Insights
The tension in your body is abating, you get more in touch with what you feel and you feel more confident expressing yourself. Your insight into the powers that shaped you has grown and you begin to realise that you have a lot of choices available. A new feeling of empowerment is there. What now? What does it all mean for your work and career, for your relationships and for your life? Together we will look at where you stand and where your next steps can be.
