 Four Elements DMTM is an embodied psychotherapy group aimed at those who wish to work in an embodied way – exploring the body-mind-emotions connection. We work within the context of a small therapeutic group.

The psychotherapeutic approach that we use combines:

  • integrative embodied psychotherapy

  • experiential exercises based on neuroscience

  • mindfulness meditation and creative visualisation

  • sounding and creative arts therapy

  • dance and movement therapy

  • the four elements transpersonal psychotherapy model​

  • Explore how our mind/thoughts and beliefs affect how we feel and how we hold these feelings in the body

  • Start to ‘re-wire’ the nervous system and create new neuro-patways (changing old and dysfunctional habits and behaviours and encouraging new and more healthy ones)

  • Get in touch with and begin to release emotional material stored in the body

  • Find a new way of processing and working with difficult sensations held in the body ~ such as stress, anxiety, anger and grief

  • Start to develop embodied sense of resilience

  • Provide a safe space for self-care and self-nurture

  • Encourage us to develop a more loving and compassionate relationship with ourselves
