I am a trainee Body Psychotherapist at the Cambridge Body Psychotherapy Centre (CBPC) and a registered trainee with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I have been a performance artist for over 20 years using the creative arts such as music, art, movement, vocal sound, and with special attention to breathing. This brings balance to my own sense of well-being. I have worked with community choirs and been a voice coach. Earlier in my career I worked as an environmental lawyer facilitating community groups.
Body Psychotherapy works with our feelings and our emotions and how we experience these in our body. It offers a supportive, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship, drawing on body-orientated methods, along with offering you space to talk and reflect. Working with the body in psychotherapy, we explore habits and holding patterns with a view to understanding how our own behaviour is contributing to our difficulties. This may include encouraging a deepening of awareness of breath, sensation, exploring images or working with movement and touch. By working this way, we become more 'in tune' with ourselves. Body Psychotherapy values this and the self-regulating potential of each individual. It draws on a person's innate ability to connect with their own personal wisdom to heal and transform themselves.
Body Psychotherapy is a humanistic psychotherapy. It is underpinned by the values of humanistic psychology which means it works with the whole person to address difficulties across mind, body, emotion and spirit. Body Psychotherapy is seen as the third force, with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as the second force, and Psychoanalysis as the first force.
