Our hearts are relational, from birth we are held and known by another, if we are fortunate we grow into an environment of kindness and friendliness, but even the most fortunate of our hearts recoils in the face of pain and injury often leaving an emotional scar. The light of kind attention is the key to unbinding these knots that obscure our heart’s potential. I invite you to join me as we create an environment of exquisite safety and respectful curiosity that opens the doorway for the recovery of your hearts innate capacity for intimacy, clarity and depth.
Welcome to Heart sense therapy
Heart sense therapy refers to the dual meaning of the word sense, that is to both know and to feel. Attending to the “felt sense” of our experience, we learn to stay close to our sensations, feelings and perceptions out of this intimacy with ourselves a new way forward is invited to emerge. This approach utilizes techniques drawn from focusing.
Are you experiencing conflict, unhappiness or lacking intimacy in relationships?
Are you feeling distressed and overwhelmed in the wake of a loss or in the midst of a life transition?
Do you feel out of touch with yourself or confused about your life direction?
Going too fast for myself I missed
more than I think I can remember
almost everything it seems sometimes
and yet there are chances that come back
that I did not notice when they stood
where I could have reached out and touched them
this morning the black Belgian shepherd dog
still young looking up and saying
Are you ready this time
