Messages that you internalize affect your body and your relationships.
I have worked with many people who are incredibly smart and capable. They have a strong intellectual ability to analyze and understand their histories and behavior. And yet, find that they continue to repeat patterns that are painful and are not functional emotionally and relationally. If this sounds like you, I’d love to help you learn how to build confidence in yourself by tapping into your own internal resources so that you feel lighter and more in control.
Identity issues that surface from change, trauma and stressful life events can be worked on through a mix of musical and verbal processing. There is no need to fear music and/or that you may not have musical training or skill. We may not use music at all. If we do, you may find that breath work and singing can help you to get in touch with and express your thoughts and feelings simultaneously. Creating rhythm, movement and analyzing the songs that are most important to you can lead to deeper insight while you find grounding in your body. You can learn to stay rooted while seeking connection and to find that joy in life is available under any circumstances.
Feeling seen, heard and encouraged to break through old patterns while being trusted that you hold inside you the wisdom that you need provides for a sustainable practice for moving through life’s challenges.
