    Publications

    The Shape of Shame
    The Embodiment Journal - Volume 1: Somatics and Embodiment for Health, Leadership and Life - February 2015
    "If, like me, you’ve grown up with shame as familiar as the nose on your face, perhaps you too are interested in a working definition of shame, how it feels, its etiology, how it shapes us, ways to modulate its grip and what happens if we do. This article aims a brief exploration of the landscape and invites your own musings."
    Available for download to Kindle for just ninety-nine pence Amazon

    Through the Body - a somatic approach to coaching
    Coaching Today - July 2012
    We can't think our way to a new way of being, we have to physically experience and embody our way there. Somatic coaching offers the possibility to move from muscle memory to embodiment - beyond adjustment to transformation.
