Movement and Dramatherapy sessions in residential and outpatient treatment facilities
for Clients recovering from Addiction, Mental Health issues and Trauma.
Integrating Movement and Psyche
This group process enables clients to become more embodied which backs up and grounds their cognitive awareness at this time. When the body becomes a familiar terrain, emotional intelligence follows.
This process helps clients move away from reactivity and impulsivity and towards responsiveness and freedom.
Freedom of Expression
In these 1:1 sessions we will give space to the articulation of your voice, your feelings and your imagination. We will bring attention to how you move, sense, feel and express what lives in you.
Healing and Discovery
A Jungian based method that uses mythology, movement, storytelling and ritual to help heal core wounds and shift group dynamics by revealing new aspects of the self.
Why Body Based Therapy?
"The astonishing structure of the body and the amazing actions it can perform are some of he greatest miracles of existence. Each phase of a movement, every small transference of weight, every single gesture of any part of the body reveals some feature of our inner life."
What our clients say...
"Charlie is so fluent in the language of the body, she spots a gesture or two, notices the way I breathe (or don’t), and then she can guide me to express the heart of the matter through my body. Sometimes that allows me to find the words I need, sometimes Charlie’s work bypasses words entirely to get to what I need to heal and move forward. It’s powerful magic, made even more powerful by Charlie’s sensitive and caring presence."
Deborah Gavrin Frangquist, Career Consultant
"Charlie perfectly blended the psychological, somatic, and movement processes in a way that shined a light on, and freed me from, my self-imposed shadow. The result was quite literally "stepping out of " these old beliefs which no longer fit the person I had become. "
