Do you struggle with your critical voice? Do you struggle to connect with yourself emotionally? Do you struggle to express yourself freely? Would you like to feel more present in your own life?
Waterflow Therapy helps you to bypass the blocks and limitations of the mind and reconnect with yourself, your feelings and your inner artist - your creative, more playful self - through the body.
Waterflow Therapy teaches you to playfully express yourself and release blocked energy and emotion using the movement of your body and the movement of water on paper.
Your feelings emerge through your own rhythms and are reflected back at you by the water which moves with you. The water allows you to become your own, self-empowered therapist. And because the image-making is totally abstract and comes from the body not the head, you never lose yourself in your story, your pain, or the past.
The process is a physical, not a mental, one and so you will feel safer than in some other expressive therapies, allowing you to access deeper feelings more easily. If you struggle to talk about your issues, or you struggle to get past the words and into the feelings, then Waterflow Therapy is for you.
In Waterflow Therapy, you let your body speak - you speak from a place that the spiritual teacher and philosopher Ekhart Tolle calls 'no-mind'. You are suddenly able to bypass the critical voices, the justifying and censoring, rationalising mind and find out what you really need and want to say. And, in the process, you learn that you don't have to keep criticising, or censoring yourself - because it's when you let go and trust yourself that magic happens.
Waterflow Therapy is a process of healing - of letting go, of self-discovery and self-connection - at your own pace and in your own way. You don’t even need to try to do this work – it just happens as you do it.
If it sounds amazing, it is... We are born 90% water and, by adulthood, our cells are still 70% water. Our bodies experience emotions as movements – like ripples of varying rhythms – through the water in our cells. Molecular biologist and psychoneuroimmunologist Candace Pert, Ph.D., in her book Molecules of Emotion, describes them as ‘…a vibration that rings a doorbell to open the doorway to the cell.’
So when we engage with water, we are engaging with our own element, which is how we can use it to reflect our own vibrations – or feelings – and it is why the work always feels surprisingly natural. It’s why we respond so powerfully to the sea, or the calm surface of a lake, for example. Water is a mirror, through which we can reconnect to ourselves.
When you connect to yourself, everything else starts to flow. It’s fundamental. All the healing in the world will only make the difference if you are first connected to yourself. That connection is the key to a happier you.
I offer one-on-one sessions in my studio, which you can book at a time convenient to you, as well as group sessions roughly once a month. All sessions last an hour. Please contact me if you would like a 15 minute skype, or phone, conversation to see whether this work could be helpful for you.
