HeartTouch

Embodied Mindfulness & Compassionate Touch Training for Psychotherapists, Clinicians and Bodyworkers.

Join us for an immersive workshop led by Anthony Fidler and James Scurry, a Core Process Psychotherapist, focused on the principles of embodiment and co-regulation within the therapy process.

Anthony teaching HeartTouch in London March 2023

In this training, participants will:

  • 1. Explore how establishing trust and aiding clients in addressing inner difficulties can be enriched through therapist embodiment.
  • 2. Learn how to integrate therapeutic work with embodied mindfulness practices.
  • 3. Develop skills to deepen therapeutic connections without the necessity of physical touch, particularly for therapists specialized in talk therapies.
  • 4. Learn how to incorporate compassionate touch to deepen therapeutic work with clients who otherwise may be difficult to work with successfully.
  • 5. Bodywork practitioners will discover techniques to integrate resonance-based touch into bodywork therapy, creating transformative spaces for clients.
  • 6. Begin the journey into trauma-sensitive bodywork, laying the groundwork for profound therapeutic experiences.

Testimonials from experienced professionals attest to the transformative potential of this approach:

  • - A Jungian psychotherapist hailed it as the "foundation of therapeutic work."
  • - An essential workshop to broaden experience and perspectives on health, with focussed attention on the body in a safe and accepting environment. (Psychotherapist & ex-Psychiatrist)
  • - Thank you for rich and inspiring workshop and for the follow-up. I feel well equipped to start introducing elements of HeartTouch into my psychotherapy practice. A good result!
  • - Anthony was really engaging and down to earth with this workshop. There were plenty of practices to try out and opportunity to reflect. I learned a great deal which will inform both my own personal growth as well as my practice as a shiatsu practitioner.

Join us for this enriching workshop and embark on a journey toward enhanced therapeutic practice and client care.

Embodied Mindfulness:

Embodied Mindfulness is a way of being in which you are fully connected with your body and you feel safe.

Your mind is quiet and present to your experience of life happening that moment and your heart feels warm and open to yourself and to those around you.

This is a state of well-being and good feeling.

We will explore together how mindfulness & touch based connection practices can help us to move closer towards this state of well-being .

We are not looking for 'cures' or 'fixes'. Whatever our 'role' we are learning to be with ourselves and to be ourselves. Just as important we are learning to be fully present with others.

Along the way we will enhance our capacity to hold safe space for others.
And this will touch everything we do in life from then on...

About Anthony:

Anthony Fidler

I had my own journey first with anxiety, panic attacks and mild depression while in my final year at Cambridge University in 1991.

This continued during my work as a financial auditor, where I experienced chronic stress and then as a software programmer where I went into a meltdown of physical and mental fatigue. A serious breakdown / burnout.

Despite massive efforts to heal myself, this journey continued in 2001, with me entering non-ordinary states, we can say spiritual psychosis perhaps.

After an 8 month period in the psychiatric system, I came off anti-psychotic medications and took personal responsibility for my own well-being. This journey continued for the next 8 years with me going in an out of challenging non-ordinary states until I stabilised in 2010.

Over time I've become a qualified Mindfulness teacher, Tai Chi & Qi Gong teacher and have been teaching since 2015. I am also an experienced student of the late Akinobu Kishi , the founder of Sei Ki and teach his amazing touch therapy in my own way. I've spent twenty-five years exploring these fields with total dedication.

I found my own ways to recover and live a full life and now share what I learnt with others experiencing extreme states, trauma, broken nervous systems or simply chronic stress situations and misery.
