It has been a while since I have posted on here for one main reason.
I suddenly became extremely busy working at three different therapy centres!
I have been working with an extremely varied client group, with presenting issues such as stomach problems, sciatica, stress, emotional pain, migraine and dizziness.
As one centre closes (Community Foundation for Planetary Healing, Portobello), I am starting work next week with patients with chronic pain, in connection with a hospital pain clinic.
This has taken some time to set up, but a January start seems like as good a time as any.
I am hoping to have a list of case studies on this blog (ensuring patient confidentiality at all times), so that more people can become aware of the wide range of physical and emotional issues that I see in my clinics.
I am attending a postgraduate training course at the end of January: Working with Babies, Children and their Parents.
This will add to my prior knowledge of working with pregnancy issues, birth trauma and post-natal issues and family dynamics in a craniosacral context.
There is so much information out there about craniosacral therapy that I would like to share. My plan is to write short articles on this blog, so that craniosacral therapy can be made more accessible to people who are new to the therapy, or not aware of how it can help.
For now, I think it is a good start to say that craniosacral therapy is often what helps the interface between emotional and physical pain to be found, and start to be resolved.
Years of emotional and physical patterns can start to be released. This can be a lengthy and sometimes uncomfortable process, like any process of change that involves inner work, increasing self-awareness and letting go of unhelpful patterns.
Craniosacral therapy can help with body awareness and self awareness. It can help with self love, self honesty and self compassion.
This can sometimes lead to huge and ultimately positive life changes, which is what can help people to continue to make progress once a course of therapy is over.
Letting go of emotional and physical conditioning is not something that can be achieved with a ‘quick fix’. Through time and patience this can happen at the right pace for each individual.
Each individual will find the therapy that works best for them, and for some people, that will be craniosacral therapy and a chance to enter into a new relational field with the self through a therapeutic relationship that promises one thing, amongst many: a journey well worth taking.
