Movement Practices and Counselling Support

for Mental Health

Christopher Bourke

I am a counsellor and movement educator with 10 years of experience working in the field of community mental health.  My movement counselling practice assists people in learning skills useful for feeling safe, supported, and courageous during difficult times.  Life is rarely certain.  This we know.  The current of change - whether we deem it 'good' or 'bad' - can be challenging to surf.
My work with people starts there.  The radical acceptance that life and its many pains and sorrows can feel like a wild, wide-open ocean.  Together we are not looking to change life's uncertainty, but instead how to work with it and face it head-on.  You can feel stable or 'anchored' in feeling your way through some of your darkest hours.   
My approach blends extensive training in yoga, trauma, mindfulness, therapeutic movement, pain science, family systems theory, and dialectical behaviour therapy skills coaching.
