"The body is the field where all of our experience happens." - Katie Lane 

From the outside, ‘body centred conversations’ may look like a coaching or counselling session with the two of us sitting in chairs together talking. However, unlike traditional talk therapy, my role is to ‘companion’ and support you to come into to your own body awareness, track physical sensations and feelings/emotions, establish body based resources to sooth and ground, stabilise your nervous system, uncover your own intuitive ‘gut’ knowing, and build capacity to tolerate, explore, and complete whatever is wanting or needing to happen in the body. 


In our sessions, we will focus on slowing the narrative way down so that the messages of the body can be heard and their meaning or wisdom explored by you. 


At times, and only when agreed upon by you and me, movement exercises, guided relaxation, and/or touch may be used to guide, support, or contain the experiences and emotions that may arise. 


My sessions are client led, meaning that we will work within your overarching intentions and goals, and with what shows up in session as particularly important, relevant, and alive.

Email me at info@katielane.co.nz to organise a 15 minute phone chat to learn more about the process, address any questions/concerns you might have, and book your first session. 

Body Centred Conversations may be useful for:
- Getting clarity around a particular issue, situation, emotion/s, dominant story, core wound that keeps showing up in your life. 
- Learning to listen to your body and access your inner and outer resources to 'be with' what arises
- Establishing better boundaries and learning how to ask for what you need
- Balancing/regulating your nervous system by increasing your access to the relaxation response OR mobilising more action/energy to come out of freeze 
- Working with trauma and symptoms of trauma
- Processing major life changes including those resulting from natural disasters, accidents, break up or loss of a loved one, assault or abuse
- Working with everyday experiences of anxiety, depression, and numbness
- Establishing your own ability to track yourself, to know when you have gone into overwhelm, to stay with your body in space during stressful times, and to know what is needed to return to your centre. 
- Increased self acceptance, self empathy, personal empowerment, and relational confidence
- Deeper awareness, presence, and intimacy in your relationships

Body Centred Conversations are strongly influenced by my studies in Somatic Experiencing (a body based approach for working with trauma and the nervous system), experiential counselling, trauma informed practice, an embodied approach to NonViolent Communication, 12+ years of work as a Yoga Therapist, and a personal and deep apprenticeship to the wisdom of the body as a natural, intuitive guide for our own insight, resourcing, and healing.

** Please note that body centred conversation is an adjunct support, not replacement, for professional mental health therapy. Due to the close relationship between psychological, emotional, and physical, sometimes other aspects of our health and/or chronic pain, illness also need to be addressed. I may also suggest that clients consider working with other health professionals - acupuncturist, herbalist, psychotherapy/counselling, medical testing, etc. **
