Voice Movement Therapy
It is said that the body is the mirror of the unconscious and that it holds our past experiences. In Voice Movement Therapy, we listen to the body to discover the somatic history it reveals. At your own pace, Marie-Lynne guides your exploration and leads you to access this level of yourself that is seeking expression. Working in this way can allow the processing of experience beyond words, and thus can facilitate healing rooted in the whole body.
Marie-Lynne is a Professional Member with the International Association for Voice Movement Therapy.
The Spiritual Dimension
Marie-Lynne’s work encompasses the psychological, somatic and spiritual aspects of the person. Transformation and healing can be profoundly spiritual and integrated as such into your therapeutic journey. This integration promotes harmonization with your deepest values, a sense of connection with your higher self, and sometimes also, a sense of unity and harmony with Life and with Being.
Marie-Lynne is currently pursuing her training with Judith Blackstone, author of “Trauma and the Unbound Body” and “The Realization Process – A Guide to Embodied Spiritual Awakening”.
