Embodied counselling sessions
Embodied counselling empowers you through mobilizing your natural capacity for growth and healing. Connecting to what you are experiencing through your body grounds you in the reality of the present moment, and allows you to access skills for successful living that are hardwired into your neurology.
Your body has wisdom beyond what you can access through thoughts or through talking. By learning to focus on what you are experiencing through your body, you learn that you are in charge of yourself. You have the ability to move through the most challenging of experiences, and you have the capacity to live intentionally, that is, in the way that you choose to.
Rates for individuals: $120 an hour, or $150 for 90 minutes. Most appointments are 90 minutes
For people in relationships: Appointments are 90 minutes and cost $180 for 2 or more people
The Introductory Certificate in Embodied Counselling
is a foundation in somatic psychology and bodymind therapy for holistic, somatic, and spiritual practitioners, including massage therapists, kahuna bodyworkers, somatic sex educators, and yoga teachers.
The course provides practitioners with practice in effective embodied skills, a broad understanding of psychotherapeutic theory leading to the development of body-based approaches, and practice in conducting embodied counselling sessions.
The course enhances body-based practitioners’ capacity to work with the emotional and psychological content that arises during bodywork sessions. Building on what you do well, the course provides you with greater confidence to work with your clients’ emotional and psychological selves, expanding and developing your skill set in this direction, and enhancing your capacity to articulate the complex systems in process for human beings.
