My name is Svetlana Nazarova. Here I want to share my inspiration for personal growth and the idea behind my work – Mind and Body integration.

We all have our traumatic personal stories to tell, which stem from our life circumstances and our attitudes. Whereas it is hard to change anybody’s background we can change the now.

Mind and Body integration is a body-oriented psychotherapy which allows working with feelings which arise in the moment, during the therapy.  It is designed to make the most profound shift in the person’s behavioural patterns and images: from victimised to empowered ones.  This is when the commonly used nowadays phrase ‘we are creators of our own reality’ becomes not just words but is felt in the body. The coin drops as they say. It is the process of reclaiming one’s fully felt life back.

Mind and body integration therapy goes beyond a conversation, it helps to turn the person’s  inner eyes and senses to the feelings unfelt, hidden from oneself especially at the times when one’s inner life is frightened or cornered. It helps to find one’s own truth, trust one’s impulses, restore wholeness, get in touch with the instinctive psyche, which as in art resides in the gut, not in the head. This is the source of dreams, passion, and poetry.

It makes me very touched and truly happy to see how people in the course of the therapy drop their victimisation and wishful thinking, start feeling their inner power, grow in a natural way and to their natural depths and become braver in dealing with everyday ‘givens of life’.

It can start with a fresh sight and self-integrity.
