NARM® Therapy

The NeuroAffective Relational Model, NARM® is founded in enquiry and curiosity

NARM® is a client-centred therapy model. You are in the driver’s seat.

NARM® mobilises your own agency to make choices and changes to
attain what you most want and need. It helps you to connect with your heart and body and move towards living in alignment with what is true for you in a safe way.

Behavioural changes naturally follow the dis-identification from learned adaptive survival patterns.

NARM® orientates you towards being fully present to your hearts desire and purpose.

NARM® supports you in focusing on self-regulation, resourcing, and harmony.

NARM® strengthens your flexibility and capacity to respond differently to situations and triggers, softening old rigid beliefs and patterns. It increases your awareness of positive connections and brings aliveness into your system, orientating you towards vitality.

A dandelion will grow and thrive in the right environment. Although it can often survive in harsher conditions, at some point, to flourish, it will need to spread its seed to find new growth. NARM® can support your move from survival to thriving.

The intention for our work together is informed by where you are right now in your life, e.g. if you are feeling stuck or have arrived at a crossroads. Together we co-create your intention through enquiry.

It works on a somatic and cognitive level to uncover the root of patterns and discovering how to orientate you towards being fully present to your hearts desire and purpose.

'The more we allow ourselves to fully experience who we are the greater possibility of change'

Frequently Asked Questions

A Discovery session is a very valuable starting point for many reasons. It provides you with an opportunity to safely explore your emotional landscape and gain clarity and insights into your personal growth.

From what I learn about you in this session, I will create a personalised well-being road map and some relevant practical tools to support you with your next natural steps.
It is a stand-alone session with no obligation for future commitments to work with me, however if you choose to continue, we will already have begun our journey together and will have mapped out the best way forward.

Individual needs vary considerably, it depends on so many factors e.g. levels of previous therapy work, resources, levels of trauma etc. We always start with a discovery session to unpack your history and map out together a well being plan for you. Some clients may only need a couple of sessions to transform the effects of shock or single-event trauma; others need more time to work through more complex layers.
Generally speaking, the higher the frequency, the more potent the work. Sessions are done in blocks of 3, each block can be spaced out, which can be beneficial to help you manage your time commitments and costs. The advantage of our discovery session is that it gives you a personal well being map that can be organised to work with your circumstances and at a pace suitable to you.
NARM® supports you to make changes and choose what you most want and need. NARM® is a body based therapy to increase your capacity for connection and aliveness moving you towards living in alignment with what is true for you. It works particularly well if you are feeling stuck or at a cross roads in your life. In our discovery session, we would identify the most suitable model for you, which may include NARM®

Since the first Covid-19 lockdown, I’ve transitioned successfully from in-person therapy to online sessions and I haven’t looked back. Sometimes clients wonder if some of the personal connection and my ability to pick up body language and other queues are diminished, in my experience it is the opposite, we are looking right at each other in close proximity with zero distractions, when I am working with clients I can pick up energetic and other queues with great ease. I have learnt that for me, virtual offers benefits which can outweigh in person sessions.

Practical benefits include:

  1. Clients are more relaxed: No time spent rushing to your appointment and squeezing it in between other commitments.
  2. Comfortable Environment: Clients feel safer working on trauma from the comfort of their own homes.
  3. Ease: Online sessions can result in greater progress with ease.
  4. Post Session: Clients do not need to navigate traffic or engage with the external world too quickly and this allows time to begin the digestion and reflection process (which continues during the following days/ weeks).
  5. Accessibility: With the exception of the US and Canada (for insurance reasons only), regardless of your location we can work together.
  6. Time Management: Clients find it easier to balance work and family commitments with their own self care and self development.
  7. Therapist Capacity: working online suits me for all of the above reasons also and this increases my capacity to show up fully for my clients and enjoy my work more.

When working with clients, I always start with a Discovery Session. This is a stand alone session, that gives you clarity on where you are right now on your therapeutic journey and a well being map of how you can move forward. Clients learn a lot about themselves in this session and it designed to be insightful and resourcing for you. The cost of a discovery session is €180. Moving on from the discovery session, the most suitable options for you would be laid out in your well being, plan including costs.

All of my prices are clearly shown on my website.

If you need to cancel or reschedule our appointment, please notify me 48 hours before the start of your scheduled appointment by email or text. Cancellations with less than 48 hours notice or no-shows will result in the full fee needing to be paid before a future session is booked. This allows me to run a sustainable practice and allow other clients to use the available time slot.

Re-imagining your healing path together

The purpose of this session is to give you greater insight into your own process and give you some simple tools to take away to use in your every day.

You will receive a manageable Well-Being map of the next natural steps for you.

I am intuitive and share what may be somewhat hidden from you and can help change your perspective, empower you and give you hope.

I will explain how my multiple disciplinary approach works and which of these tools would be most suitable for you.

This session is a stand alone independent session.
It is a prerequisite for all of my clients, however there is not an expectation for you to continue work with me immediately after our session. You may choose to take the information and insights to work with another therapist or work with me in the future.

Together, we unpack where you are right now in your healing journey.  We review and reflect on what has happened and co-create a vision for how you wish to transform and feel in your life.

This session will help you see who you are now and who you are becoming beyond old stories and wounds.
