Mental health problems are a growing public health concern. 1 in 4 will be affected by it at some point in their lives in the UK. Be it stress, depression, anxiety, burn out, or more complex & challenging cases of PTSD, Bio Polar, Schizophrenia and Psychosis.
At Tamalpa UK we take a holistic approach – we recognise that one’s mental health is as vital to a balanced life, as ones physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
The public offerings and wellbeing self-programme with Mind, specifically provide a safe space for gentle exploration of self, facilitated by trained, professional and empathetic teachers, all registered Somatic Movement Therapists (RSMT) and Registered Somatic Movement Educators (RSME)
The series of classes foster deeper awareness of the participants own unique abilities. Whilst also learning how to resource oneself creatively with specific tools, to navigate mental health challenges and everyday life.
Creativity has demonstrated to be a supportive container and outlet for expressing thoughts, images and associations. The body is a powerful tool for supporting grounding, connecting and regulating the nervous system.
Our public offerings and training programmes have been a supportive and transformative environment for individuals navigating Depression, Stress / Burnout and Anxiety Disorders.
