SARENA WOOLFARD

I qualified as a process oriented psychotherapist in April 2020 after studying for 10 years, and have been working with individuals, couples and groups since 2013. I am also a 5Rhythms Dance teacher accredited by Gabrielle Roth since 2004 and Open Floor Movement teacher since 2017, as well as a Therapy in Motion therapist with Open Floor International. I am a co-founder and publisher with Handspring Publishing founded in 2011, where I work with researchers and prominent teachers in the areas of bodywork and movement.

I facilitate and support those with trauma by exploring the difficult places often experienced.  My work also includes facilitation and coaching of those who struggle with their inner and outer world as part of personal growth and development. 

Mostly, I support the process that is emerging, allowing for you to experience new parts in yourself and how this impacts your relationships and the world around you.  Sessions can be in person or online. My website is www.movetobestill.com.
