How do I do it?

I offer an integrated path to healing and discovery using a variety of techniques appropriate to your needs/goals and within your comfort zone:

  • dialogue – “traditional” conversation-based techniques
  • planned experiential – “homework assignments” you would report back on
  • guided experiential – I would coach you through an exercise and observe
  • receptive experiential – I would provide you with a sensory (touch) experience
  • interactive experiential – I would provide you with practice, e.g. role play, or actual experience

If you’re already in therapy or working with a healing professional, I would work in conjunction with them, providing you with practical experiences to support your healing process, and communicating regularly with them about your progress and needs. Essentially, they would continue helping you as they are now, and I would use mindful touch (a.k.a. sacred touch) and/or bodywork to help you fully release your “stuck” emotions, much like a physiotherapist would help you recover from a physical injury. We would be professional partners in your healing process, and my work would complement theirs.

I use a holistic approach, integrating appropriate elements from:

  • coaching and counselling
  • massage
  • re-enactments and role-play
  • yoga and meditation
  • personal fitness training
  • sexuality coaching
  • Tantra, Secular Buddhism and other spiritual paths
  • and many other sources

Sessions are available in a variety of configurations to suit your needs and preferences:

  • Coaching is available by e-mail, Skype, telephone or in-person
  • In-person experiential sessions are available in my office or in your home*.
    • 1-on-1
    • 1-on-2 – I work with you and your partner
    • 2-on-1 – I and a female practitioner work with you
    • 2-on-2 – I and a female practitioner work with you and your partner

For in-person bodywork/experiential sessions, 2 hours is recommended and 90 minutes is the minimum session time.  Talk-therapy sessions can be as short as 60 minutes if you prefer.

A sliding-scale is available; click here if fees are a concern for you.
