Somatic & body based coaching online or in-person £40

useful for trauma, money issues, self-worth, relationships, inner communication, self-criticism.

“It’s not about getting the feeling out of the mind, or hiding it, but about experiencing it with acceptance.”

- Carl Rogers (founder of person centred therapy)

the general way we approach counselling is in a person centred way - this means that a counsellor isn't the expert looking down upon a client but rather as an equal, that the pair can meet in a way that the client feels deeply listened to and able to work through what they may need to in a way that allows them to explore issues that they may/ or may not be aware of.

what people say

Craig

Dylan really helped me through a difficult time in my life and helped me change my perspective. Over a period of 12 years I had seen multiple therapists to address issues relating to anxiety, depression and marital issues. With invariably unsatisfying results, I had lost hope. I was utterly pessimistic about the possibility of being happy. I can honestly say my sessions with Dylan changed this and I have finally been able to uncover and rewrite some of the deeply embedded patterns of negativity. I can't recommend him enough!

Aaron Birch

Sessions are catered for all walks of life. I have found the practices they teach so beneficial for  managing anxiety.

Ian Bayliss

I have learned a great deal about myself  during the Mindful Mondays programme. It's really helped me to be more open and see things from another perspective.
