Please see this link for information about Wild Therapy which is an approach developed by Nick Totton, and carried forward by Nick along with (so far) Kamalamani, Jayne Johnson, Leonie Guest and Lucy Messervy. Here is the link: www.wildtherapy.org.uk
“Wild Therapy points out that mainstream psychotherapy and counselling have become too identified with domestication and associated concepts like boundaries, objectivity and control; it seeks to rebalance therapy – and in the long run, human culture – with a good dollop of wildness, spontaneity, boundlessness and passion.” (www.wildtherapy.org.uk)
I am fortunate to be a participant this year 2015/2016 on the one year course and I am having a wonderful time!
Ecopsychology, Shamanic practice (including drum making) and my experience in psychotherapy are working together in me and emerging as my expression of Wild Therapy.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese,
harsh and exciting-
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
I offer sessions indoors and /or outdoors.
Listening and bringing space and company to what is wanting to be discovered, wanting to be found, trying to happen.
Recognising the interconnectedness of all beings and events, past, present and future.
Creating possibilities for contact and relationship with the wild and other than human.
Welcoming and supporting different forms of expression, relating and ways of being in the world and honouring the wisdom of the body.
Fees: self-determined scale between £50-60 per hour. I have a limited number of places available for discussion about a different fee depending upon both our circumstances and what is sustainable for both of us.
(Initial session to find out if we want to work together is free of charge)
