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.

Body-centred Mindfulness (BCM)

BCM 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. BCM 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.
Please contact me for further info. Thank you!

Darran Biles

Embodied-Relational Therapist
Norwich

East of England

07716 349068

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’.

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.
