HELLO, I'm Johannah from Natural Holistics, a Somatic Therapist & Life Coach based in Rugby, Warwickshire.
All my life I’ve been curious about the connection between mental and physical well-being and how to overcome life's obstacles and challenges in a natural, nurturing way. There is no one right way to go about your own healing. It is as unique as you are.
As a Somatic Therapist and Life Coach I specialise in chronic illness and trauma recovery through building a healthier mind-body connection. By resetting neural pathways we can balance our nervous system bringing a feeling of safety within ourselves, leading to a more joyful and fullfilled life. I can support you to find your unique way of getting through difficult times and getting to a place of well-being. Together we can discover which therapies are the best for you at this time on your journey. Keeping in mind that your needs will change over time.
My own journey
For over 25 years I have been on my very own intense healing journey overcoming chronic illness and extensive trauma. This is and will be an ongoing adventure that taught me to be in awe of the wisdom and knowledge that lies within my own body and mind. The skill is to listen in and to follow your intuition with self-compassion and kindness...
... And to never give up even when the healing journey takes you to dark and difficult places and phases. My own experiences have been challenging at times but looking back I've always come out the other side again, getting to know myself truly from the inside out, becoming myself, accepting and respecting of who I am.
Professionally I started off with a master’s degree in educational science specialising in psychomotor therapy for children but my journey into therapies and healing really began in Nepal in 2005 where I volunteered in an orphanage. It was in Pokhara where I attended my first regular yoga classes, acupressure massage course as well as discovering reiki healing. And so the journey began...
Working with people and helping them to improve their physical and mental well-being developed into much more than a job to me and I feel very blessed to be offered the chance of supporting people on their journeys and to see them experiencing some beautiful and deep healing.
EVERY MOMENT AND EVERY BREATH THERE IS A NEW BEGINNING, A NEW START AND A NEW HOPE...
