Mark Kelly

Practitioner Types: Somatic Practitioner


I am a certified Somatic Coach, trained at the Strozzi Institute, and I am also a Somatic Experiencing Trauma Therapist.

I offer short and long-term coaching and therapy for individuals and groups. I have more than twenty years experience as a classical dancer and dance teacher which has given me a wonderful preparation for working with people therapeutically.

My passion for movement and transformation is being channeled into my work as a therapist. My approach is gentle, intuitive and body orientated, offering a space for the body to speak and express. As you share your experiences with words we may also be curious what your body is expressing or leaving out. I trust deeply in my clients' capacity to heal and transform and I see my role as a fellow traveller on the road.

My work is deeply fulfilling supporting people to move through challenging times in their lives and come through with more resilience and a feeling of wholeness.

I can offer 10% discount for dancers. I have many years expereince as a professional dancer which I find this supports me in working alongside dancers and starting the somatic process with ease and confidence. You may come to me if you have experienced an accident or injury which has healed physically but you are still feeling stuck or anxious about returning to performing. It could be you have a creative block and you want to connect more to your imagination and creative process.
