Workshops in 2019
Here is a full list of the workshops happening in the rest of 2019:
How connected do you feel to your own body? Is it a safe place?
How connected do you feel to others? Are you ok in a duo but feel lost in a crowd?
What is it like for you to be truly seen by another? Or heard?
The mind expresses itself through the body, so in this 3-hour exploratory, introductory workshop we will use movement and breathing to gently explore your inner reality. Giving you an opportunity to get curious about yourself. Exploring different ways of moving, thinking and feeling. Tapping into the wisdom of your body.
What you’ll get out of this workshop
In this workshop we will explore what connection was like in your family of origin and how this may have impacted you as an adult.
We’ll bring to consciousness the patterns you might be following in your adult life that unconsciously mimic what you saw growing up.
We’ll look at what it’s like for you to connect with others. Do you crave it? Or do you prefer quiet time on your own?
What is it like for you to be listened to? And to listen to others?
We’ll investigate how you hold yourself back from speaking out and we’ll look at your personal boundaries in relationships with others.
We’ll see how you are going to be more connected in your life. How you can get more out of your life.
We will also explore your personal concept of intimacy. What it means for you, and how you can get more of this in your life.

This workshop is for:
People over the age of 18. It is for my current clients, previous clients and those of you that I’ve not yet had the pleasure of meeting.
This workshop will involve some gentle and dynamic movement since this is a body-centred workshop. Some grounding, stretching, breathing and some movements to process your feelings.
It is your choice to move as much or as little as you want. For example, I have clients with shoulder, knee and hip replacements who work within their own limit and adapt movements to suit their own body (or just don’t do that particular movement).
Please call me for an over-the-phone interview to check that this workshop is suitable for you. (Group work is not for everyone.) In some cases it might be better to come and see me for 1:1 attention. To book to see me you can either book via my online calendar or call me on 0450 22 00 59.
How to Book:
Call or SMS me on 0450 22 00 59 (I can take credit cards over the phone or i can give you the details for an internet transfer)
Email me at email@example.com (I will give you the details for an internet transfer); or
Ask me about it in your next session.
