Somatic Mindful Psychotherapy Christchurch

I am a holistic health practitioner. For over 14 years I have been working in Europe, South East Asia and New Zealand, offering private sessions, group workshops and volunteering to both locals and expats/immigrants.. 


I focus on body-mind integration, finding balance and a sense of wholeness. Thanks to my somatic trainings (diplomas in nursing, biodynamic cranio-sacral therapy, body neurotherapy) I understand and include the body (body talk) into psychotherapeutic process. It allows to deepen the process and access unconscious narration and core beliefs.


I studied somatic integrative psychotherapy (Hakomi Institute) and specialize in psycho-somatic diseases and working with trauma. 


Somatic mindful psychotherapy is a client lead therapy, based on client-therapist relationship, mindfulness, loving presence, unity, organicity and wholeness. 


Somatic mindful psychotherapy sessions are for those who deal with stress, anxiety, anger, depression, grief, pain, psycho-somatic symptoms, wanting to build confidence and self esteem, change negative habits and beliefs, get more clarity and understanding. 


Would you like to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.
