Anne L Ryan
Body Psychotherapy and Biodynamic Massage
My work as a body psychotherapist has developed from my vocal theatre and voice coaching work. It comes from my curiosity about the voice and its embodied relationaship with the mind. I work with childhood neglect, developmental trauma, low self-esteem using body, movement, breath, sound and affective touch to build confidence in the uniqueness of who you are.
Hakomi Practitioner, Mindfulness teacher and Massage Therapist
Based in Cardiff, South Wales
I have trained and worked over more than twenty years, in massage, energy work and mindfulness. I have over thirty years` personal practice in meditation. This journey led me to train in Hakomi, with the Hakomi Education Network. This mind-body therapy is an elegant, non-intrusive way of drawing outmoded habits and self-limiting beliefs into consciousness. Hakomi, Mindfulness and Massage seem to provide a coherent whole. Effective when used individually or as a complement to each other. In the light of embodied awareness the effects of unhelpful patterns may be reduced

Embodied Relational Therapist
London, Crystal Palace
Embodied Presence - Body-Centred Mindfulness in groups and 1:1
Embodied Presence (EP) is an approach which gives the body a voice. By focusing on our felt experience, we can discover the body as a place of profound healing. Rather than figuring things out in our heads, we cultivate an embodied awareness which integrates body and mind. EP can thus increase resilience, reduce stress and simply enhance our joy of living as we connect with ourselves, our life and relationships in a deeper way.
Upcoming taster sessions 9th & 10th October 2021!

I am a fully accredited UKCP, EABP and EAP registered psychotherapist, with more than 40 years of professional experience. I am professionally insured by Towergate. I trained originally in Body Psychotherapy at the Gerda Boyesen Centre in Acton, London (1979-1983) and have trained much more widely since.

I am an integrative body psychotherapist operating in East London. My practice is heavily influenced by the work of Wilhelm Reich and my own experience of Reichian therapy which showed me the body has hidden depths as well as the person-centred approach of Carl Rogers showed me the curative value of talking and human contact.
It's important to have a number of tools and models to draw on, as every client is different and we have to learn to be the therapist that they need.

East of England
I’ve been working as a therapist since 2011, originally training in Person-Centred Counselling. By the end of that first training I was practising as a therapist but felt I needed more, and started seeking out more body-centred ways of working. I became involved with Process-Oriented Psychology and worked a lot with Buddhist meditation, then trained in Embodied-Relational Therapy and Wild Therapy. More recently I’ve become a student of Hakomi, where I particularly value the principle of nonviolence and the idea of therapy as ‘assisted self-discovery’.
Therapeutic Singing Teacher
London and Online
I teach therapeutic singing to anyone recovering from illnesses, accidents and operations.

Dr Greg Madison
Brighton and London
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.

Relational body psychotherapy, supervision, facilitation
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.
