Breathwork

What is Breathwork?

Breathwork, is simply learning to breathe in different ways.

We can learn breathing styles that aid in the moment, when stress, anger or shutdown arises. As well as learning techniques to be practiced regularly, supporting the development of stronger nervous systems.

Regular practice allows for life-changing results to well-being.

Changing the way you are breathing can be the fastest way to change how you feel.

When you alter the length of your inhales, exhales and spaces in between, you alter your heart rate, your brain chemistry, what state the nervous system is in and so much more.

What do I teach?

I teach a wide variety of breathing techniques, ranging from short breathing exercises that can be used to interrupt panic, anxiety and other unwanted states to breathing exercises that, used regularly, can begin to strengthen the nervous system and teach the brain better ways of being calm, managing stress and responding to life’s difficult events, small and large.

My experience of breathwork is varied, from yoga, Wim Hof, trauma focused, anxiety management +

My work as a psychotherapist and teacher enables me to offer breathwork that is informed by psychological understanding. The practices I teach, are neuroscience informed and will be personalised to your needs.

Regularly practicing certain breathing exercises can aid both mental and physical health in an incredibly wide variety of ways.

Sessions can vary in length from 30, 60 or 75 minute. Each session will involve a brief check in, where you can let me know how you’re doing and what you’d like to gain from the session. This could be to feel less anxious, more grounded and present, to release pent up agitation. Every session will be responsive to you and what you’d like to gain.

What are the benefits?

Often we have become habitual shallow breathers or regularly hold our breath without noticing.

Breathwork, mindfulness and movement can allow us to notice, alter and release these negative patterns that create stress and distress in our moods and bodies.

Breathwork is well placed to be taught alongside both mindfulness and movement.
