Advantages of counseling combined with bodywork
The majority of clients need less sessions than they do with traditional counseling, saving time and money.
It’s also more relaxing, and I believe—fun. Even with extremely difficult situations there can often be laughing and relief at the joy of letting things go or the absurdity of a situation. Most people feel better after each session.
I am also open to working on physical issues, that are bothering you, during the same session.
While traditional counseling can be helpful, it puts a lot of focus on talking and thinking and processing. Unfortunately most of us think too much as it is—believe me I know! The real goal is to get out of your head and to release the difficult emotions from your body.
The way I approach counseling combined with bodywork is you lie on a massage table fully dressed. Using light touch, I feel the vibration of depression, discomfort, grief, frustration, overwhelm or whatever is bothering you in your body.
You can talk or not talk as I offer my intuitive insights and help you with the process of letting go. As you shift these emotions out of your body, things become more fluid and enjoyable.
I also work with lots of people in more of a life coach role, where I help them to gain clarity around work, relationships, family, big decisions, etc. Since some of my clients are out-of-state or unable to make office hours. I offer these services via phone as well as in person.
