Frequently Asked Questions
What does somatic and embodiment actually mean?
Embodiment and somatic essentially mean the same thing. Put simply they mean being present to our body. Typically, we often derive information or learn using our minds. Healing using somatic tools means building awareness of body responses and sensations and utilising them to shift experiences and create choice. Being more embodied opens us to a wealth of information and healing potential.
What are some of the reasons someone might book a session?
People seek my support for many reasons and purposes. Some come to work with specific things of concern – areas that no longer serve them; places they want to push beyond and discover what lies beneath. They may be in long term relationships, or with new lovers. They may be single and seek to deeply love and know themselves. They may have experienced sexual trauma or things in life that have robbed them of their innate capacity to feel and be intimate. They may not know exactly where they want to go but are certain of where they no longer want to be.
Who do I work with?
I welcome all genders, sexual orientations, abilities and relating styles. I work with people over 18 who come with an open mind and heart and have a genuine desire to learn, heal and discover.
What might a counselling session include?
Sessions involve a combination of talking and somatic processes. We start by meeting you wherever you are at and identifying what is most important for you to focus on. Using body based and trauma informed processes I walk alongside and resource you to claim your own journey of awareness and change. Healing processes take time and are most effective when momentum is maintained over an extended period. Sessions are usually 60 minutes and practice opportunities may also be identified for you to continue working at home.
Where do I work from and what hours are sessions available?
Sessions are offered in a beautiful rural setting in my work studio at home. We are surrounded by bushland and privacy. I am about a 45-minute drive from the centre of Brisbane and the closest train is the Ferny Grove Train Station.
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION?
To book a session you can send me an email or text with your contact details, and I will give you a call to talk further. Alternatively, you are welcome to call me directly. My preference is for us to have a brief chat on the phone or via email before an appointment is made.
