Helen works with a continuum that encompasses performance,
creative and artistic process, movement practice, life process
and dance movement therapy. Although there is a potential
relationship between different aspects of this continuum,
an agreement is made with each individual about the focus
and intention of their work. If this transforms in the course
of the work the arrangement can be re-negotiated.
Movement is understood and experienced as a personal, physical
and creative process. A process that leads to the core
of oneself and back out into the world. Inhabiting one’s
movement more fully engenders an embodied sense of self in
daily life and in performance.
In a process which unfolds over time participants are supported
to follow the evolution of their movement practice whatever
their level of experience. Time and space are given
to breathe, to touch base, to reconnect with the kinaesthetic
self, to reflect.
The sessions are unstructured and follow the needs of the
individual. They generally consist of a combination of moving
and talking although the balance of time spent on each varies
considerably. Stillness and silence also speak. Participants
may be encouraged to write or draw as part of their ongoing
journey. Although individual sessions embrace both daily life
issues and life transitions they are not problem orientated.
Sessions are confidential and professionally supervised.
An initial phone conversation is followed by an introductory
session in which the needs of the participant and the intention
of the sessions are clarified and an agreement is made.
Individual sessions normally last one hour but can be extended
by prior arrangement. They may be at weekly, fortnightly
or monthly intervals either on an ongoing basis or for an
agreed number of sessions or period of time.
Sessions take place in Branscombe or Beer, East Devon, 20 miles East of
Exeter. For mentoring or supervision or people travelling
from further afield longer sessions can be arranged less frequently.
A series of sessions can be booked on consecutive days.
