Mark Kelly Somatic Coach & Therapist
Mark is a certified somatic coach, trained at the Strozzi Institute. He's also an advanced student in somatic experiencing trauma therapy. He offers (6-12 sessions) and long-term coaching & therapy for individuals and groups.
My approach is gentle, intuitive and body orientated, offering a space for the body to speak and express. As you share your experiences with words we may also be curious what your body is expressing or leaving out. I trust deeply in my clients' capacity to heal and transform and I see my role as a fellow traveller on the road.
During a session I will guide you through seated and standing practices that will help bring attention to body sensations and getting in touch with your inner landscape. Bring awareness to what you're experiencing in the moment and seeing where energy may be stuck in the body. As we become in touch with the body we can connect to a deep wisdom and healing potential.
Somatic coaching is a holistic coaching approach which supports a deep connection with the body's intelligence and capacity for resourcefulness. The practice of cultivating presence will build a greater availability to act from centre, moving towards what is important to you in life.
Somatic experiencing therapy is a naturalistic pioneering body-based approach to overcoming stress and traumatic life experiences. By practicing slowing down and getting in touch with sensations in the body we can move from fixity to flow.
My journey of training to be a coach & therapist has given me an opportunity to access more of my potential as a human being and to become more comfortable in my skin. I am inspired to share these powerful healing modalities and create collaborative therapeutic relationships with clients.
If your interested to work with me or having any questions about the way I work, I offer a free 30- minute phone conversation to get some time to connect.
