Andrea believes that given the right conditions our bodies have a natural capacity to heal and she loves supporting others in creating these conditions. Drawing on 15 years of experience and a broad range of body-based skills, she works creatively with clients to find more stability, ease and joy in their lives.
Many of us at some point in our lives will suffer symptoms of overwhelm. It might be a single life event that knocks us off centre, or the wearing effect of ongoing stress that depletes our capacity to cope, even with small things.
These symptoms might show up as a chronic pain pattern or a cluster of symptoms that doctors find difficult to diagnose. Or we can find ourselves looping in cycles of difficult thoughts and emotions; anxiety, anger or a feeling of numbness and disconnect. We might feel like we’re not really in our own lives.
These are all signs that the natural regulation of our nervous system is out of balance.
Using the skills of Somatic Experiencing®, mindfulness, myofascial bodywork and therapeutic massage, Andrea works with clients to gently bring their nervous system back into stable and healthy balance; to a place where the body can feel safe again, restoring a sense of presence, ease and vitality.
During the sessions we will notice and track sensations in the body. We will also do exercises that help bring the nervous system back into healthy regulation. Where appropriate and depending on the clients’ needs, Andrea will offer touch or bodywork. All sessions are tailored to the individual needs and desired outcomes of the client.
