Body/Mind Therapy

“Under the Hard there is Pain
Under the Pain there is Fear
Under the Fear is Sadness
Within the Sadness is Softness
In the Softness is a Vast Open Sky.”

~ Ani Pemma


Quotes and Teachings: 
For a long time the Universe has been germinating in your spine”, says Sufi Mystic Hafez. Our body is not as old as we are, it is ancient.

The lungs know how to breathe, the liver knows how to filter blood, the arms know how to catch a ball, the heart knows how to feel, the mind knows how to think. Life knows how to live, and how to die.

From the moment of conception, through birth and early childhood, we have been exposed to psycho-physiological, adopted ancestral and social patterns, often repeated trauma, which made us compulsively look for happiness in all the wrong places.

“I AM” is a spiritual statement of our responsibility to manifest our particular quantum of the spirit within the resistant medium of our earthly lives. It may be wrong to copy or to pretend, yet the pressures to do so are great. To free ourselves from the depressing compulsion to be “good”, we need strength and courage to seek our truth.”

– Andrew Feldmár (Psychotherapist)

Even in our spiritual pursuit, we tend to idealize the spirit and hide the psyche (just like in an old Greek myth). We become trapped in our own survival and willfulness. Yet, the willfulness itself lies on futility and fear of meeting our “soul”.

“People are generally psycho-phobic, afraid of their souls becoming alive.”

 – R.D.Lain (Psychiatrist)


Work Ethics, Principles and Practice:

“When we honestly ask ourselves which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing, and face with us the reality of our powerlessness; that is the friend who cares.”  

~ Henry Nouwen

My approach is based on my initial training in Counselling, Psychodynamic and Gestalt Therapy, Perinatal Psychology and over two decades of personal therapy with my teacher and mentor, Psychotherapist, Andrew Feldmár.

After years of practising Yoga and Meditation, my counselling practice has been grounded in the body (soma) and the teaching of Buddhist Dharma, guided by the principle of Kalyanna Mitta which means a “Noble” friend. Shared space and the relationship of Kalyana Mitta is built by cultivating  safety, security and trust.

In the lineage of my teachers, my approach is rooted in the social phenomenology, equal presence, moment to moment awareness, and practice of non harming (Ahimsa).

My forte is working with the “mind of the body”. I offer meditation instruction, breathing, and gentle embodiment practice.

 “Psychotherapy must remain an obstinate attempt of two people to arrive at a recovery of the wholeness of being human through the relationship between them.”~R.D.Laing

The healing is,  as Laing states, in relationship. authentic, caring presence “with” another rather than “over” another, is itself the environment that cultivates freedom of choice and empowers emancipation (Etymology: verb eman·ci·pate \i-ˈman(t)-sə-ˌpāt\. : to free (someone) from someone/control or power over).

My practice is Psychedelically informed, meaning,  that as per my  professional experience and work ethics, I am willing  and capable to meet  one in any states of consciousness, including the one after their  intake of psychedelic, entheogen or other psychoactive substances, with an intention of reducing harm and creating conditions for psychosomatic and spiritual integration and embodiment.

“Madness need not be all breakdown. It may also be break-through. It is potential liberation and renewal as well as enslavement and existential death.”
