curiosity illuminates the root; compassion ignites the way


Any good journey starts with knowing where you are

It may sound easy, to 'know where you are', but unlike the Google maps that most of us rely on to navigate the outside world, it takes a safe space, patience and honesty with oneself to navigate one's inner world. This territory is often unseen, misunderstood and complicated, with the competing and conflicting parts of the mind.

Compassionate Inquiry is a somatic-based relational therapy that reveals, like a loving 'light', what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world. By 'somatic', I mean that the body is integral in the process of self-discovery. Learning to listen to the body 'talking', reveals emotions and beliefs that are largely inaccessible through the thinking mind. An aspect of this work is in unearthing belief systems that hold us in the past, so that the possiblity for living in the present is accessible.


“The purpose of Compassionate Inquiry is to drill down to the core stories people tell themselves – to get them to see what story they are telling themselves unconsciously; what those beliefs are, where they came from; and guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories, or letting go of the hold those stories have on them …That’s what Compassionate Inquiry is.” ~ Dr. Gabor Maté
