Somatic Therapy & Movement Education
As an Integrated Somatic Therapist and Movement Educator, Margaret uniquely combines innovative and holistic forms of therapy that integrate working with and through the body (soma) to effectively address psychological and physiological conditions.
IN PERSON & ONLINE
Somatic Therapy is a body-centred approach that takes reparative steps to bring greater balance and release to mental, emotional, physical and biological functions.
Originally from Japan, the deep relaxation experienced through this touch based therapy helps to restore the body’s innate self-healing capacity
Mindful Yoga combines postures and mindful breathing to consciously release tension, unwind our busy minds, reconnect with the earth & relax while strengthening our body.
Authentic Movement is Meditation in motion, a unique contemplative practice through spontaneous movement and careful observation in the presence of a compassionate other.
“I have been going to Margaret for approximately 20 years now. I first got to know Margaret through her Yoga classes in Dunmanway.
I found her classes so beneficial that I booked a private treatment with her and have never looked back. I have a long term injury and I find Shiatsu a very gentle therapy. I always get results and come away feeling so relaxed in body and mind. Margaret has treated me when I had sciatica, sinus trouble, she has helped me through grief and through other stressful times in my life. She is AMAZING. I also had Shiatsu with Margaret throughout my pregnancies and loved it.
Margaret is a very kind considerate lady and so easy to talk to. I would highly recommend her.”
“I have found my authentic movement experience to be wholly nourishing for mind, body and soul. It has helped me greatly to recover my confidence in public speaking and diminished my anxiety about being seen to be the centre of attention. As a result of the sessions I feel more whole, at peace and sure of myself. The effects are long lasting and I feel the therapy has positively influenced the way I live my life now and how I relate to others.
Margaret is a beautiful person and a true professional who led me through the sessions with sensitivity, openness and kindness. I felt respected, valued and held in our healing space. Thanks a million Margaret for such a gorgeous experience!!!”
“I’ve experienced Margaret as a wonderful calm, compassionate therapist. I felt very held and supported throughout the work, both in the touch and talk therapy.
Margaret draws from a wide range of knowledge and various therapeutic methods. I highly recommend working with her as a therapist on trauma, physical issues and overall wellbeing.”
