I see you thoughtful, intelligent and curious
I see you, courageously reaching for a way to understand yourself
And I see the part of you that knows your mind might not have all the answersHow can your body help?
I am an embodiment teacher + hands-on therapist
I am here to guide you back to your deeper knowing so you can stop overthinking things and start living.
The world demands you use your mind a LOT...
To plan, organise, strategise and achieve.
And it does an incredible job of keeping you safe on some level.
But when we over-relying on the mind we
And it can be exacerbated by the strange disconnected times we are living in.
And it’s bloody exhausting.
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 and begin to understand where they might come from in order to access more choice in how you show up in the world.
But deeper than that, the embodied approach reawakens the wisdom of your body, increases your capacity to handle the inevitable ups and downs of life and creates deeper and more meaningful connections to your life, work and relationships.
So my work supports you:
I work with people who have explored how to navigate life with their minds and are tired of not finding the answers they seek up there.
I work with smart people who are seeking their own wisdom.
I use embodiment coaching, meditation, movement, journalling, therapeutic touch, breathwork, sound, amanae, energywork, compassion and humour to support the process of remembering the whole of who you are and living from that deeply resourced place.
My Mission is
To help you remember your wholeness, your worth and agency so that together we can be more present in our relationship to ourselves, to one another and to the planet we are living on.
It's peace work really, and we do it through the body.
Learn to tune in, listen deeply and act on what you hear.
Try this quick practice to drop out of your busy brain and instead connect to the whole body for calmness, presence and focus.

"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)
