Who is it for

There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.
— Friedrich Nietzsche

Body psychotherapy is for men and women who are dealing with issues they find hard to overcome and who are willing to do the work of self-exploration required to understand what has caused this and what is necesssary for things to change.  You may have challenges at work, relationship difficulties, blocked creativity or disatisfaction with your life and career choices. 

There may be physical problems like headache or backache, which is painful and restricts freedom and movement, or you may have recurring emotional problems and deep seated issues which require time to explore in order to gain insight as to how your past has influenced this. 

It is also there for those who simply wish to know more about themselves as a process of self-development and are open to the knowledge and self-awareness that Embodyment can bring.
