Are your 1:1 Sessions online or in person?

My sessions are online via Zoom. 


What do I need for the session? 

A stable internet connection and a little space to move in front of your computer. Headphones / earpods are also very helpful, so we both have good sound quality. Wireless headphones / earpods are helpful, so you can move away from the screen if you need to. You also need to make sure that you are alone in the room and have privacy for the lenght of the session. 


Can I book a single session with you?

Yes, I offer intro sessions for new clients. 

After the intro session I offer my sessions in 6-session and 12-session packages. 

Somatic healing happens slowly because it goes deep. The body needs time to process and rewire. That is why I ask you to commit to a minimum of 6 sessions. To allow yourself, your body and your inner world the time, space and slowness to connect deeply in this process and allow for healing to happen. 


Who are your clients?

Women who want to connect deeper with their body and its wisdom and learn somatic tools and practices, so they can:

  • heal and deepen their relationship with themselves, so they can shift into being truly self-accepting, self-supportive, and self-loving 
  • learn to navigate life and relationships from deep self-connection, vulnerability, and authenticity 
  • heal old inner wounds from unresolved childhood trauma  
  • learn to navigate and honour their needs, longings, values, boundaries, capacity, and inner aliveness in embodied ways

I mostly work with women 40+ and often with heart-led creative souls. 


If we work together 1:1, how often do we do sessions?  

Every week or every other week, depending on your needs. 


How do I book sessions with you?

You can book a 30 minute Free Connection Call with me to hear more about the sessions. The call is for us to connect and for you to get clarity around the sessions and feel into whether this is the right next step for you in your healing journey. In the call I will answer any questions you have about the sessions, and we can both feel into, whether we are a good fit. 


I want to join a circle, but I am nervous about being in a new group. Is there space for that? 

Yes, always. For many of us, being in groups and/or a new environment can feel vulnerable and overwhelming. Sometimes so much that it makes us freeze up. Know that you are not alone in that. Many others feel the same way. 

If you have been in circle with me, you might have heard me share the story of the first time I joined a circle. I was SO anxious and sure that I was going to “do it wrong”. I put so much pressure on myself. I held my breath and did not share till the end, and when I spoke, tears were streaming down my face. I was so touched, but also overwhelmed by this new way of connecting and practicing together; the warmth, the wisdom, the openness, the realness. It was unfamiliar to me. I had so much to learn and practice. The other women were so supportive and gentle and all helped me learn on the first stumbling steps of my circling journey. 

So I get it. Truly. 

You are very welcome in circle, whether you are new to circling or have been circling for years. Come as you are. You don’t have to know how to circle. I am here to guide and support you. I believe in showing up imperfectly. This means showing up, just as you are. Just be you. With your fear, your doubt, your worries. On your tired days, on your unfocused days, on the days where you just want to hide under the covers. There is space for it all in circle; the overwhelm, the messiness, the real and the raw. For it all to be seen, named, and witnessed, gently. And for us to be with it and hold it, together. It all belongs.


I am nervous to be on camera in a session or circle. What do I do? 

That is very understandable. It is completely normal to feel nervous or self-conscious about being “on screen”. It can take some getting used to. I am always here for a conversation about vulnerability, visibility, and being nervous in groups or new settings. 

In general, for the sake of transparency and safety, I ask all participants to be on camera for the duration of our call, so that everyone can see who is in the room. However, you are welcome to turn off your camera for the parts where we are moving if that feels best for you. I will name this in the calls too. 


I feel called to do a session or circle with you, but I feel nervous and am not sure that I am up for moving in front of the computer screen. What do I do?

That is so welcome. It is completely normal to feel nervous or self-conscious about moving, while someone else is watching. And for some the online format can reinforce that feeling, so it can take some getting used to. I will hold gentle space for that, and you are always welcome to bring it up or choose not to move. We will work gently and one step at a time. 

In general, I ask all participants to be on camera for any call, so that everyone can see who is in the room. However, you are welcome to turn off your camera for the parts where we are moving if that feels best for you. I will name this in the calls too. 

We don’t always stand up and do gentle movement. Some of the somatic practices are done sitting. 

Connecting with your body and your world through somatic work and gentle guided movement is all about tuning in and listening. I will guide and support you gently through this. 


What do you mean by “gentle guided movement”?

My personal intuitive movement style has its roots in improvisation, contemporary dance, and free intuitive movement. When we move in a session, workshop or circle, I guide you to move intuitively, so your movements might look completely different than mine. That is exactly how it is supposed to be. There is not a specific way of moving. There is no right or wrong way of doing it. We are exploring how your body expresses itself through movement. It is not about how it looks, but about  how it feels in your body and what your body needs. The gentle guided movement is about listening to your body and letting it lead. 

You don’t need any dance or movement experience to do my gentle guided movement practices. Just openness and curiosity.
