The importance of reclaiming a sense of health, and a sense of belonging in the body as a birthright .
For a not inconsiderable portion of the last 30 years Andy has been a student of the body – initially Medical School studies and working as a Doctor, then years of training as a body centred psychotherapist. In the latter regard he specialised in working with people suffering from the legacy of psychological and emotional trauma principally within a method known as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
Sometimes this work was helping patients restore a sense of stability inside were none or little existed. Other times this meant helping folk release held trauma from the body. For the last decade Andy has taught this work to Mental Health professionals in North America, throughout Europe and in Australia
Most recently he has become interested in the importance of reclaiming a sense of health, and a sense of belonging in the body as a birthright .
