Our respiratory system is the only involuntary system in the body that we can also have conscious control over, yet much of the time our breathing is unconscious. When we aren't aware of our breath it can lock in place muscular, emotional and mental patterns which can, at times, entrench our feelings of disconnection to the world and others, whilst increasing our anxiety levels. Whether you want to gain a deeper connection to yourself in order to enhance relational depth with your clients, or are looking for simple yet effective tools to offer your clients for self soothing and regulation then this workshop is for you.
This workshop will offer you a range of breathing exercises to activate the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest & social engagement) for calming anxiety, creating connection, enhancing sleep, improving digestion and much more. It will also provide you with an exploration of this vital system of the body where you'll discover more about your breathing patterns and how to create a balance between charge (taking in from the world) and discharge (giving back out, letting go).
Wear loose, warm clothing and have 2 heavy(ish) books to hand.
This workshop will be hosted on the Zoom meeting platform where we will use our camera and microphones to interact with each other as a group.
To support practitioners in this time of extraordinary circumstances we are offering access to this group for a self-select fee.
The self-select fee is a radical inclusion policy to open learning for all colleagues. The guide price for this event is £20.00, however, we appreciate that income varies greatly in different locations and circumstances. Please contribute what you can to help us maintain inclusive professional training.
I’m a Breathwork Coach, BACP Accredited counsellor and clinical supervisor with a background in yoga and bodywork.
I currently work as a counsellor within the NHS IAPT programme as well as running a busy private practice and I enjoy teaching yoga and breathwork within the community and online. I'm the centre manager for The Bedfordshire Centre for Therapeutic Studies where embodiment practices are integrated into the diploma training.
I’m interested in the impact trauma can have on the nervous system, mind and body and I have developed a more trauma-informed & embodied way of working to support others to better inhabit their bodies, self soothe and regulate their feelings and in doing so feel more grounded and connected. Offering breathwork and embodiment practices to my clients supports the 'bottom-up' system to trauma recovery enabling the therapeutic work to take place on a somatic as well as psychological level. This in turn enables clients to experience their body as a resource and mind-body integration can start to take place.
