Get Out Of Your Head
The world demands you use your mind a LOT
To plan, organise, strategise and achieve.
It does an incredible job of keeping you safe on some level.
And it has likely got you a long way in life.
But when we over-rely on the mind we we work from a place of limited capacity
And we shut ourselves off from much of our power and wisdom.
At its core, the work I offer is foundational - it is about how you move through life
Getting into your body can help you recognise your patterns so you can begin to understand where they might come from in order to access more choice in how you show up in the world.
You may recognise this from yoga, meditation or breathwork classes you have attended.
The embodied approach creates a pause, a beat.
But deeper than that this work reawakens the wisdom of your body, increases your capacity to handle the inevitable ups and downs of life and reconnects you to your power.
It creates deeper and more meaningful connections to your life, your work and relationships.
And it's this that really bring change.
So my work supports you:
I work with smart people who are seeking their own wisdom.
But who know the mind can’t provide all the answers.
I work with people who actively explore the big questions
I work with people who, when they bump up against challenges in life, want to know why?
I work with people who ask a lot of themselves
I work with people who hold the patterning of doing it all themselves
They have had a taste of presence through breath work and yoga and are ready to open to more of that powerful state.
I work with people who sometimes feel unsure about asking for support.
But they come in response to a deeper commitment to their growth
I holding powerful spaces big enough for you to access and express all parts of you.
I use meditation, breathwork, therapeutic bodywork (touch), amanae, energywork, sound + embodiment coaching, movement, journalling, compassion and humour to support the process of remembering the whole of who you are and living from that deeply resourced place.
I have over 20 years experience and you can read about my qualifications in the about me section.

"You are an amazing body worker and a beautiful spirit that allowed me to go deeper into feeling me than I had in a long long time."
The (Gentle Sunday) Be:Held session, was just that and all it implies. Gentle feels into the body, letting go of the mind and its chatter. Inviting a softness into the heart and calming the nervous system with guided walks through the woods of of our minds to the heart centre. Using chant and somatic movement to move through the tunnels of stuck emotions and pathways of disillusioned core beliefs. Being held in a sacred space with like minded souls is just heaven on Earth. To be heard, seen and given safe space to validate yourself. Its truly beautiful heart work. Safe, and loving embodiment practices and detachment from the ever exhausting thoughts and mind processes at its finest. Cat you are an angel on Earth, thank you for your work.
Since the session my mind has not been quite as racy and chaotic as usual, and I've been more aware of (and have paid more attention to) how parts of my body are experiencing, say, the act of walking, or how it feels to be sitting on a train. And not by making an effort to pay that attention, but it's just the way it's been.Being released from the tyranny of an overactive mind for at least a little while is such a relief and has felt very nurturing (Amanae Session 2021)
Where has amanae been all my life?! It’s utter magic. Thanking my lucky stars it found me, and thanking YOU for opening me up to it. You are magic. It’s like having pulled a bit at a little thread and then realising your whole outfit is unravelling. (In a good way.) I’m totally baffled by the depths of what I experienced in that three hours workshop and by the reverberations I’m still feeling. I don’t quite have the words (still!) but feel like I somehow saw myself for the very first time. I feel like something seismic shifted, or was unlocked, or was re-birthed. Again, I can’t explain it but I feel like I’ve been super sensitive to loads of little realisations in the past few days - kind of like joining dots I couldn’t see before about who I am and why I’m here. Any time I’ve felt myself nudging back into old pattern or chain of thought in the past couple of days, I feel like I can recall the sense of being in that chapel - what I felt, and what I felt in everyone else. The support. And what I’m now referring to as my “unravelling”...!
A fascinating, caring, transformative experience which can open your heart and introduce you to a new way of experiencing life (Head Strong to Heart Smart 2020)
Using a range of physical (massage, therapeutic touch, acupressure, myofascial release), energetic (reiki) meditative (mindfulness, yoga nidra, taoist approaches) coaching and releasing techniques to unwind the body, to let go of tension on all levels & create space.
