Somatic Movement

Body - Mind - Emotion - Spirit

Why Naturopathy

What is Somatic Movement?

Somatic Movement is an embodiment practice in movement that listens deeply to our personal internal bodily feeling and experience. The interactive process is intended to touch some deeper part of the self and integrate it. This can be healing and insightful. The process is very unique and creative for each of us.


Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare

PTSD Symptom Reduction

Mindful Somatic Movement has shown promise in reducing the severity of symptoms in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Collaborating with clinical psychologists, Somatics Educators complement existing therapeutic approaches by helping individuals reconnect with their bodies, movements, and internal feedback. This holistic approach empowers individuals to embrace their mind and body fully, contributing to the alleviation of PTSD symptoms.

Mind-Body Connection

Mindful Somatic Movement entails a close and profound connection with your bodily sensations, movements, and spatial positioning. Additionally, it enables you to notice subtle feedback from within, including heart rate and breath rate. This heightened awareness provides insights into the level of tension and pressure at which your nervous system operates, empowering you to modulate your stress responses effectively.

Mindfulness vs Traditional Exercise

Mindful Somatic Movement distinguishes itself from traditional exercise by emphasizing quality over quantity. Rather than counting repetitions, this approach encourages individuals to tune into their internal environment and discern subtle feedback. This shift in focus allows for the effective softening and release of muscles, surpassing the benefits of sheer quantity.

Somatic movement offers a range of profound benefits for individuals seeking to enhance their physical, mental, and emotional well-being.


Somatic movement, particularly when combined with co-regulating touch, offers a powerful approach to healing trauma. Co-regulating touch involves supportive and safe physical touch that fosters a sense of connection and safety between individuals. In the context of somatic movement, this touch enhances the healing process by directly addressing the nervous system's foundational issues.

Stress Reduction

Somatic movement offers a powerful tool for alleviating feelings of stress and anxiety. By honing in on your bodily sensations, position in space, and subtle changes in bodily functions such as digestion, breathing, and heart rate, you can effectively dial down the stress response. This shift enables your central nervous system to transition from self-preservation mode to a state of relaxation, learning, and receptivity, fostering a sense of calm and reducing anxiety.

One-to-one Somatic Movement Sessions

What’s an individual session like? 

The purpose of these sessions is to support a holistic experience of embodied movement. From the outset, my approach is collaborative and I respond to fluctuating changes in each individual’s needs, whilst cultivating trust, openness, joy, and creativity in the relationship. 


The benefit of individual sessions is experiencing a safe container where you can truly ‘come as you are’ and explore what arises for you. I offer a democratic approach to individual sessions, encompassing: free and/or guided movement, mark-making, writing, self and co-regulation practice, touch, and reflection. 


All sessions start with a grounding/breathing exercise to centre oneself and to encourage full presence throughout the session.  


As a commitment to providing accessible support, I offer a sliding scale for clients. Please enquire to discuss pricing. 

Client Testimonials

I came to see Fae without any prior experience of somatic movement and she provided a really safe and welcoming space for me. She allowed me to choose whether she or I led in what we would do in each session which took a lot of the pressure off for me. I felt very comfortable and the way she facilitated helped me to relax into the sessions deeply and I found great healing through my work with her. Somatic movement unlocked some really intriguing emotional states for me and I would recommend Fae and somatic movement therapist to anyone who is curious!
