Relationship Sessions

Losing sleep
over a relationship?

Human beings are social beings; our need to connect, belong and contribute is real. Anything that disrupts our belonging, threatens our connection and impairs our contributing to a community hurts our feelings and emotions, and we feel those hurts in the body as pain, disturbed sleep patterns, fatigue, loss or excess of appetite, intrusive thoughts and more.

Emotions are the finger pointing towards relationship goodness or wrongs, and emotions are felt in the body. Relationships require “fertile soil” so-to-speak, favourable conditions to flourish, as well as specific skills of showing up and communicating.

Sessions are available for individuals, couples, and groups, short-term and long-term, according to needs and goals.

Sessions are:
60 minutes at $100 USD or
90 minutes at $150 USD

If you genuinely can’t afford sessions but think you would benefit greatly from them mail me.

Maybe there is someone close to you that you can’t talk to without feeling your heart racing and your belly tightening up in a knot. Or maybe you didn’t talk to someone in a while, but you can’t stop thinking about them. Sometimes you seem to repeat the same pattern of disconnect with different people in your life, and it puzzles you why.

In our work together we look at relationships on the outside (communication and behaviours) and inside (emotions, views, drives, values) to bring peace in your body and mind, and more ease, harmony , and better connection between you and others. We may access information and insights from the memories imprinted in your body (through embodied inquiry); we may gain understanding and make subtle changes in a constellation work session; we may smooth the edges of conflict through voice dialogue and embodied shadow work. We may touch upon an earlier relationship event and practice a set of better-resourced strategies than you had during that earlier event.

You walk home with a set of skills uniquely tailored for you to help you connect better, stand up for yourself and that which you love, engage more effectively with others, or disengage with dignity and ease.

One session may be all that you need for your situation; or, you may choose a long-term process to support and sustain your flourishing;, or you may find a number of sessions to be enough to orient you in the direction of your liking.

The sessions are using body awareness, breath, and voice. Answers are encouraged from within your own wisdom using focused embodied inquiry. Relationship choices are facilitated through the integration of head (information), heart (your personal likes and dislikes), and gut (body instincts).

Who comes to see me?

People come to see me with either a stubborn chronic symptom that doesn’t seem to respond to regular health care methods; or they arrive with a personal or professional relationship problem that causes anything from sadness or irritation to distress.


What for?

The common ground of the two areas, symptoms and relationships, is the body. The body registers and remembers relationship pain. When the pain is acute, some life events and situations are the cause of upset, the body tenses and contracts, the breathing patterns change, and the experience is often quite intense. In over twenty years of practice I noticed that addressing and resolving relationship tension, disconnect or conflict eases off body pain. When the pain is chronic, a dull, constant discomfort, experience has shown me that body-centred inquiry leads to old relationship events that took place around the time when the symptoms first showed up.


What methods do I use?

The methods I used to address either pain, chronic or acute, are based on an embodied, integrative process where body awareness and sensitivity is central. Feelings, both sensations and emotional feelings, carry within pre-verbal information towards the person’s survival and well-being. For example thirst (dry mouth, sticky throat and at times headache) points towards the body’s need for hydration; this is an obvious example - when the body tells you that you’re thirsty, you drink; once you’ve drank your water, the thirst goes away. But most times the information is more subtle than that: a man with restless leg syndrome needed to move as a school student but his movement was denied by the school rules, and repressed, later on internalized by the man’s inability to move at social gatherings around the dinner table, denying his own’s body’s drive to gain acceptance. Emotional feelings are also information: fear informs the body to protect itself by running, or fighting, or playing dead. When fear arising, say, watching a horror movie, and the body remains unresponsive on the sofa, the energy of fear remains unexpressed, as an unfinished business.

To fully process a feeling, the client learns to move, breathe and voice its energy until it reaches resolution. At the same time, part of the learning is acquiring and practicing the set of relational skills which further supports the client’s well-being. In the case of the man with the restless leg, he learned and practiced during our sessions how to kindly and firmly assert his need to move. The restless leg syndrome disappeared and hasn’t returned.

In essence, the private sessions, with individuals or couples, are embodied lessons where the clients acquire personal and interpersonal life applicable skills which lead to both healthier, kinder, more fulfilling relationships and greater well-being in their own bodies.
