Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy

Cranial Osteopathy South Somerset, Psychotherapy South Somerset, Psychotherapy North Dorset

Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy is a Buddhist based psychotherapeutic model which understands that awareness is transformative. This core knowing enables an opening into change and healing, so that suffering can be eased as we allow self acceptance and compassion to emerge.

Danielle supports clients in working with embodied sensations, bringing awareness to the body's subtle reactions and feeling tones, in the moment. This exploration of self is done in relationship and Danielle provides a safe and confidential holding environment for the client to be deeply heard and seen.

Danielle believes that through becoming more intimately aware of ourselves, with our hidden reactions and behavioural responses, we can open into a more self accepting way of being. This relational psychotherapy can create a change in how we experience ourselves, and our increase in awareness can ease self critical thoughts, feelings and judgements. Embracing the unknown through embodied exploration, and touching into our vulnerability, can reveal personal insights and truth. This can be a pathway to achieving a greater sense of connection through feeling into our own experience of being human.
