Mind is Body, Body is Mind
Hi, my name is Ali Rose and as a Somatic therapist my work can combine dialogue, clothed bodywork and movement to support you physically, emotionally and mentally. I work from The Soma Rooms in Chepstow and The Practice Rooms in Clifton, Bristol.
SOMA describes ‘the body experienced from within’, and somatic approaches connect us to our inner experience, reminding us body is not something we have but where we experience ourselves. Somatic’s is a professional field, rooted in science but with a holistic approach to body-mind wellbeing, it recognises our bodily self as our thinking feeling self and vice versa.
Recognising mind and body as indivisible, working with the body can be an effective approach that brings new insights and integration of the issues that concern you. Each session can unfold in a unique way, combining talk, movement, and clothed bodywork as agreed between us, with the compassionate and non-judgemental therapeutic relationship supporting you with new awareness, insight and integration of what arises.

Our work together can be short, medium or long term, but in the first instance I recommend an Introductory session and then should you wish to continue, a minimum of 3 or6 sessions to see how our work together might support you. Please do get in touch if you’d like to discuss how somatic therapy might support you.
I am Registered as a Somatic Movement Therapist with ISMETA (find my listing HERE) and hold a Diploma as as Integrative Bodywork and Movement Therapist with IBMT (see my listing HERE) and undertake regular supervision.
Please email me if you would like to arrange a free 15 minute phone call to answer any questions you may have about this body based approach to therapy. My charges in Chepstow are £55.00 for an Introductory session and £150.00/£300 for a series of 3/6 sessions to be taken within 3 months. In Bristol an Introductory session is £60 and 3/6 sessions (£170/340).Whilst I can offer some flexibility and discretion, cancellations with less than 24-hours-notice will require payment of the full fee.
