Work With Me
Weekly therapy sessions allow a confidential held space for you to turn towards what is arising in your life. Carly’s waiting list is currently closed but will likely reopen September 2023 so please email then if you are still looking for therapy.
Carly has a unique, intuitive, embodied approach that is relational and seeks to support you to trust what is emerging, so that it can be felt and integrated. She specialises in seeing the patterns underneath what is unfolding in your life and sitting alongside you as you meet what is arising.
How do sessions work?
Many people come to sessions saying that they have had talking therapy but now want to integrate their body into the process. Others come to me first off and that works too. In my experience, we can work to change behaviour, but this approach often means working against the body and striving to get somwhere else. Instead, I invite you to begin where you are, to allow yourself to be honest about where that is and from this place we have a ground from which to work.
What that looks like in practical terms varies from person to person. Together we will discover what works best for you. This will include some talking interwoven with somatic listening and there are many ways that I can faciliate that. Many people are often suprised by what unfolds and name that it is unlike any other sessions that they have experienced before.
I specialise in
- helping people to deepen relationship and trust in their body
- relationship/relational issues with yourself or others and usually both
- listening to what is arising in your life
- facilitating leaders, changemakers, teachers and therapists to trust their unique voice and how to offer that to others
- being with emotions and facilliating contact with emotions that may be more difficult to feel
- excercises that may shed light on what is underneath a pattern/issue/situation
- freeing the voice
- freeing sexual energy and working with specific sexual issues
- freeing creativity
- helping people recover from religious trauma
- helping people process trauma
- facilitating mothers coming home to themselves after having a baby
- processing birth trauma, loss of a baby or abortion.

“Now I understand that there are two melodies playing, one below the other, one easier to hear, the other lower, steady, perhaps more faithful for being less heard yet always present”
– The Second Music, Anne Lighthart
“Carly welcomed me into each session with ease and a sense of spacious waiting. I felt transported somewhere deep within me. Her insight was life altering and her methods kind and inviting. My body was often left vibrating with the energy of discovery with an eagerness to connect deeper and more authentically with my own self and sexuality”

How I work and Timings
I ask all new clients to sign up for block of 6 weekly sessions to make a foundation from which to work, after that some people end, but most tend to continue and the slot is yours for as long as you need it. I offer long term work which really allows the work to be relational and in depth. Or sometimes people prefer a shorter term arrangment to hone in on a specific issue. I offer everyone I haven’t worked with before a free 20 minute discovery call where we can speak about your needs and see if we are a good fit. Contact me to enquire about this.
My working hours are Tuesdays and Fridays 9-3pm BST I offer sessions online and in person in Sheffield UK.
