Welcome to the website of Dr Albé Fourie (Counseling Psychologist) and Marion Greene (Clinical Psychologist). We are Psychologists that share a similar vision of transformation and healing which has taken us on a journey that we hope to share with you in a number of ways. Much like the wild geese on their migratory quest we see this as a sacred journey in that any step taken in the direction of self healing, no matter how seemingly small, ripples into the life and lives that surround us. While our professional backgrounds are diverse we recognise that what is very often overlooked, is that a relationship with our body is an essential part of our well being, our happiness, our safety, our stability, our healing and our wisdom. Mary Oliver's poem "Wild Geese" expresses so beautifully the essence of this journey:
"You do not have to be good
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves."
What if you could find a way to live as the full expression of yourself?
What if you could discover that as you live from the full expression of yourself it allows others to do the same and that in the endless rhythm of this ebb and flow you are enriched as you enrich?
What if you could discover that there is so much more that is whole in you than broken?
And that all you have to do is start a conversation with your own body?
"Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things."
As Somatic Experiencing Practitioners we bring to our therapeutic work ways in which to re-connect with your body and it's wisdom. It is our passion and life energy to share, facilitate, prompt and nurture this journey of discovery, and to bring healing to the parts of you that are stuck, disconnected, frightened, forgotten or silenced.
We offer individual sessions in our respective offices, but group sessions can also be facilitated and arranged. In addition we offer Experiential workshops using Somatic Experiencing principles together with a herd of horses who as skilled co-facilitators offer a unique context for healing and personal growth.
