About me

I’m what many would call a “humanistic” practitioner – I tend to focus on an individual’s potential for growth and self-actualization. I know from experience that people’s character and desires are at least as variable as their bodies – everyone is unique, and at the same time we’re all similar. Certain qualities and needs are simply part of what it is to be human.

I’m no stranger to therapy. In my early 30s I started to undo the habits I’d developed in response to the garbage that I encountered as a child. When it comes to tolerating things I shouldn’t have had to, I’ve been-there-done-that and I had learned plenty of tricks – particularly how to numb my emotions and disconnect from my body. It was a challenge for me to unlearn those tricks, rebuild my relationship to my body, and reactivate my emotional processes. In many ways, those years were my rebirth, and as I’ve continued being true to myself I’ve been living with greater vitality and fullness.

By age 40 I was ready for my next phase of personal growth – helping others through what I’d learned. And my learning hasn’t stopped. I’ve kept on learning and listening to my body, and to other people’s bodies. Some have called me a skilled healer. I think of myself as someone who listens, asks questions and makes a space for something new to happen.

As well as being a Certified Sexological Bodyworker, I have a a variety of qualifications in emotional healing and trauma recovery.  For more details about me, to request a consultation or ask a question, use the form below  or e-mail me at phil@bodyconnections.ca.
