This is what we are:
Welcome to the Brighton School for Embodied Therapy. We offer a range of groups, workshops, trainings and individual psychotherapy with a body-centred focus. Our key influences are:
Dance Movement Psychotherapy
Body Process Work
Somatic Trauma Work
This is what we do:
Dance of Awareness
Dance of Awareness™ (DoA) is a new approach to working with movement, dance and awareness, developed by Tim Brown and Clare Osbond. It has five main streams of influence: Neo-Reichian body-centred psychotherapy; Five Rhythms dance; Authentic Movement; Dance Movement Psychotherapy; and the experiential exploration of Awareness itself. It is a group process that explores our early developmental experiences through a cycle of movement.
Free / Form
Free / Form grew out of Dance of Awareness and works with the same developmental focus and movement cycle. Here we work without music in a small closed group setting.
We offer training and workshops in Body Psychotherapy. The Bodylistening programme offers a model for therapists and practitioners who want to work more directly with the body. Influences include Embodied Relational Therapy, Bioenergetics, Process-oriented Psychology, and Gestalt. It can involve working with body energy through breath, movement and dialogue. Where appropriate, we include Deep Bodywork - direct hands-on contact with the body.
