Options & Fees
Individual Sessions & Half-day Workshops
- by Zoom or in person
When you are experiencing uncertainty or disruption in your life, thinking and talking your way through is not enough. Literally feeling your feet on the Earth and noticing with all your senses the abundant life around you helps reduce stress levels and restore your sense of balance and wellbeing.
- Connect with your thoughts and emotions through mindful awareness practices
- Connect with your body through focused nature based sensory exploration
- Connect with the rest of the Natural World in a deeper way
A series of four sessions gives you the opportunity to experience Somatic Ecotherapy and see if it is the right path for you. Included in the sessions is guidance to help you make the most of your individual time in Nature in between sessions. As we progress the content can be adapted to suit your interests and needs.
Package of 4 x 60 minute sessions
Weekly or fortnightly (plus your own time with Nature between sessions)
Single sessions are available at $85 each if you prefer not to commit to four sessions.
Delving Deeper & Reaching for the Sky
- by Zoom or in person
If Somatic Ecotherapy is for you I can support you in deepening your experience and continuing your progress and personal growth through individual sessions. My work is grounded in the Hakomi Method with the Natural World contributing support in many ways. It can be considered co-therapist as it helps provide an accepting safe space outside yourself to hold difficult emotions as we work with them. It can elicit memory and suggest metaphor, contributing new perspectives on life experiences. In the midst of the creation of Nature your own creativity tends to expand - you may discover an urge to write, paint, sing, dance, stitch, sculpt. And as Nature gives to you, you may want to find a way to give back to Nature. I will support you, along with Nature, as you explore the pathways that open up before you.
$85 for 1 x 60 minute session
$300 for 4 x 60 minute sessions
I believe accessing the wisdom of the body and of the Natural World should be available to everyone. If cost is a barrier please contact me for options.
Given its foundation in the Natural World and the body it is surprising how effective Somatic Ecotherapy is by Zoom. However, being physically in the same space does add an extra dimension. In-person sessions begin indoors in my comfortable therapy room where we will discuss if being outdoors is suitable for you. If so, we may move into a garden environment.
