Elif ClarkeCertified to run online sessions

I believe that our breath is much more reliable at telling our stories than our mind.

I have witnessed many times that my clients are able to identify and process difficult memories, ultimately shifting deeply rooted beliefs and behaviours that may be shaping their life and relationships with their own BREATH.

By Reema Menakem: “The body, not the thinking brain, is where we experience most of our pain, pleasure, and joy, and where we process most of what happens to us. It is also where we do most of our healing, including our emotional and psychological healing.”

Experience
  As a survivor of personal trauma, she is passionate about helping others to overcome relational and childhood trauma and mental health challenges by working directly through breath and body. Elif’s mission is to empower clients to tap into their subconscious mind and release deeply held emotional blockages; including accessing unconscious coping patterns like dissociation, to empower the body’s innate capacity to heal. Her understanding of the principle that ‘the body keeps the score’ has been instrumental in guiding clients towards lasting transformation and well-being. In addition, her understanding of attachment style, transferences and transferential projection further enhances her ability to provide tailored support.   Elif’s background in yoga teaching and Yoga Nidra instruction has also been instrumental in supporting and enhancing her practice as a Transformational Breath Senior trainer ® and somatic experiencing practices. She has also received training in other energy modalities including reiki, chakra balancing and crystal healing.  Throughout her journey, she has come to understand the interconnectedness of the body, mind, and spirit, and believes that healing can only occur when all three are addressed. Her aim is to empower her clients to become their own therapist and enable them to bring fragmented parts of their physical emotional, and spiritual self together with their own breath. Her approach is intuitive, and compassionate, and she creates a safe and supportive space for her clients to explore and connect with their resilience, inner wisdom and authentic self.
