Dr Greg Madison

Experiential-Existential Psychologist
Brighton and London

South East

I have been practicing as an embodied psychotherapist for over thirty years. Over the years, I have been exposed to many, often competing, psychological theories and most of the various models of psychotherapy. The body is a greater resource than any theory and felt experience can reliably guide and correct our ideas about our lives. The feeling that the body makes about our life situations can unfold step-by-step and with each step comes deeper understanding of what is really going on for us. This natural process is called Focusing and it can be added to any other model.

Emma Palmer

Relational body psychotherapy, supervision, facilitation
Bristol

South West

07905 147968

I count myself as fortunate to have worked as a therapist since 2003. I’ve always been fascinated by the connections between our thoughts, feelings, body sensations, faith, ‘nature’ and the rest of life. This fascination shapes my work as a relational body psychotherapist, Wild therapist, facilitator and supervisor, co-creating the work in the room – or sometimes the work outdoors. Another love is word weaving, and I’ve written/co-edited four books, the most recent ‘#MeToo: counsellors and psychotherapists speak about sexual violence and abuse’ published by PCCS Books.
