My Approach to Helping

We are wounded in relationships, and it is in relationships that we heal.

I provide a safe and gentle space in which all your parts are welcome.

In Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy, we learn to cultivate an observer that is able to be aware of our thoughts, feelings, and body sensations.

What does a session look like?

In a Hakomi session, we would start with something that you are interested in exploring. This could be a big life issue, or a small thing that just happened to you in the past week, or day.

As you start to talk about this, I will guide you into mindfulness to notice what is happening in your body as you are talking.

Here, we sense into our experience. You might notice a hardness in your chest, or a tightening of your breath. We begin to feel into the weather systems of these unconscious feelings and how they show up in the body.

Then we might try a ‘little experiment in mindfulness’. A Hakomi experiment might include repeating an automatic and unconscious gesture you make, but slowly and mindfully.

From there, we usually come across core beliefs that your system has been holding on to.

We then work towards providing a ‘missing experience’ which is something that you didn’t get to have in your early life experience but that would have been good to have.

Something significant usually happens in every session.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Studies show that it is not the technique or method that makes psychotherapy most effective. It is the loving and safe relationship between therapist and client that is the biggest indicator of the client's healing.

In my practice, safety and loving kindness comes first and foremost. I provide a deeply kind environment in which healing naturally occurs. If you do not feel safe or comfortable with a therapist, no matter what method they are practising, you may be left feeling guarded, unheard, or just not understood. This may be repeating the relational wounds that you already face in your every day life.

If this is your first time to therapy, I recommend trying different practitioners before choosing who feels safest to you.

If you have been experiencing years of therapy and now want to try something different, that is based on mindfulness and the body, Hakomi Somatic Psychotherapy will greatly increase your level of self-awareness, body awareness, understanding of yourself and others, and ultimately, more freedom to make choices in your life.
