Body Mapping Mentorship

 Jan/Feb 2020- Jan/Feb 2021

The Somatic Body Mapping Mentorship is a yearlong program to guide, inspire and support you as you integrate Body Mapping into your work as a therapist or artist.  The program includes three weekend retreats in Bristol and monthly one-to-one sessions over the phone or Skype.  The mentorship enables you to develop your particular way of body mapping within the context of your own project or on-going work.

The mentorship is now into it’s fifth year running and past participants are busy body mapping in the fields of psychotherapy supervision, women’s leadership and coaching, cultural identity, dance & movement psychotherapy, feminine awakening, pregnancy and early motherhood support, eating disorder, and women’s mental health.

“Deep, expansive and creative ! Those are the words that come when I think of my 10 months experience in The Body Mapping Mentorship with Annette. Such a precious space to explore, create and recreate my own unique way of integrating body mapping into my practice. I really appreciate the insights of everyone, the collaboration and the personal time I was given.” – Samiel Carolina Rodriguez Barros – Personal Coach, Women’s Health


Who is the mentorship for?

It is for anyone who would like to bring somatic body mapping into their creative and therapeutic work. Participants need to be qualified and currently working creative arts therapists, psychotherapists or counsellors.  First-hand experience of body mapping is essential and can be gained prior to the mentorship in one or several of the Body Mapping Intensives for Women running throughout the year.

 What does the mentorship offer you?

  • A starting point to conceive of body mapping in your working practice
  • The space to explore various aspects of the body mapping process, try out old and new approaches, ask questions, find answers and follow your own specific interest within the work
  • My presence and experience to guide you as you plan, set up, and facilitate your own body mapping within the context of your ongoing work. 
  • The company of others with whom to share your development as a somatic body mapping practitioner
  • A regular rhythm of learning, practice and reflection
  • A yearlong cycle to bring to life your particular way of body mapping suited to your particular context of work
  • A process that nurtures your own intuitive knowing, your unique skills and your inner authority to use them wisely and safely

What the mentorship is not

  • It does not provide step-by-step instruction of a body mapping formula which can then be reproduced in any given context
  • It does not lead to a professional qualification, although certificates of participation are provided
  • The mentorship does not offer placements or work opportunities.  Participants need to have a secure work context in which to practice somatic body mapping DURING the course of the mentorship

The mentorship scheme with Annette provided an integrated way of incorporating all elements of Body mapping tailored to my specific needs and practice. This is a wonderful scheme – highly recommended for practitioners who want to develop their work further.  Sue Curtis – Dance Movement Psychotherapist, Lecturer and Supervisor.
