Phoenix Rising can be helpful in negotiating a wide
range of psychological and emotional experiences. Some of
the things clients have brought to the mat include PTSD and developmental trauma,
sexual and other abuse, eating disorders, addiction,
questions of gender and sexual identity, depression,
grief, life crises and making transitions. Other people
dont have any particular problem but
use Phoenix Rising as a tool of general self-growth
and awareness. While Phoenix Rising may help in the
healing of injuries and illnesses, the main intention
of this work is to enable you to enter deeply into your
own embodied feelings and experiences, so if your aim is simply
to find functional solutions to injury or illness, you
will probably find a biomechanically or medically oriented therapy more appropriate.
You dont need to be fit
or flexible to receive this work, or to have any experience
of yoga. However, if you do already have a yoga practice,
Phoenix Rising is a great way to offer more focus to the somatic dimensions of postures, making space for sensations, emotions, thoughts and energetic movements to arise and be received into intuited meanings and words.
As an autistic person, I love working with other neurodivergent people and have found Phoenix Rising often works very well with autistic and ADHD processing styles. I also specialise in working with developmental / complex trauma and with eating disorders.
