Rosen Method Bodywork Sessions

My Story

For many years I worked with therapists to try to unravel aspects of my life that I found challenging. This supported me up to a point, however, after some years, I felt as though I was treading through the same muck, the same stories over and over again. Without realising it, I kept meeting the same locked doors in myself. When I first came to Rosen Method many years ago, I breathed a sigh of relief to have found something that offered me a refreshingly different approach. Suddenly, it felt like I was coming home to my body in a new way, and that there was someone prepared to go there with me (my new practitioner). This shared journey allowed me to go places that I hadn’t been able to go before, to start knocking on locked doors within myself that I hadn’t known before. And because the practitioner was working through touch and observations of the body, I could become aware of my responses more fully. “Your body didn’t respond when you said that.” “You took a deep breath just then.” For me, here was something that brought me into what was really going on, to what I was really holding onto in my body, and right there was a new possibility for change and growth in each session. A new opportunity to see the doors, give them a gentle tap, and potentially even one day open them!

When I first started my Rosen training in 2015, I felt a real connection and joy and I was inspired by the potential to share this work with others. My Rosen journey has allowed space for me to grow into all parts of my experience with kindness and love. I am constantly inspired by the potential we all have to move more and more towards compassion and care for ourselves and the world. There is always so much to learn, open to and offer kindness towards, and that is what keeps me on this path for both myself and others. It is a great joy to be on this journey with others.

My Philosphy

I believe that every part of us deserves to be met with compassion and acceptance, and have the space to be expressed and witnessed. All of our emotions, including sadness, joy, fear, excitement and anger, need to be heard and acknowledged. Each person’s Rosen experience is a personal journey of gradually and gently meeting. It can lead us along a path of acceptance of aspects of ourselves, allowing opportunities to express what we find along the way. Connection is incredibly important and we are often seeking it in our lives, sometimes from places that do not offer us the nourishment and depth of connection that we need. 

There is a lot of suffering both in the world and in our personal experience that can cause us to close off from others and ourselves. I believe that we all have the potential to open more to our own experience and that doing this can help us to connect more deeply and honestly with our lives and those around us. 

I find the experience of meeting and connecting with my clients very moving and it is a real honour to explore and journey through the process together. This process of being together is deeply nourishing and something I am grateful to be able to both experience myself and offer out to the world. 

For those who feel that they are living behind a door, or that there could be more potential for experiencing and expressing themselves more fully, I offer an opportunity to peek through the keyhole, through the doorway, or potentially to open the door to the experience beyond. We can go there together, and find out where the journey will take us.
