flowing through itself
flowing through mySelf
Every experience of suffering is a calling for the mind to explore the deeper truth of who and what we really are. To remember the essential unmoving ground of life as it engages deeply and effortlessly with this ever changing, continuously flowing, fabric of experiencing. As this is recognised, the natural state, a wellspring of connection, freedom, peace, clarity, bliss, and vitality is experienced, along with an immense inspiration and creative potential, as mind is freed from the grips of our personal story and world of concepts.
Together, we can follow it home.
Self-remembering, as the naturalness, wholeness and home you never left
Experiencing the sense of disconnection from our naturalness, wholeness, beingness, presence - our True Nature - can express as a sense of loneliness, isolation, depression, fear, and eventual existential crisis. We can feel imprisoned in a mind that reflects life as a dense, dry, and barren landscape where a lack of life's meaning and purpose creates a heavy and sluggish 'just getting through' experience. Maybe we are in a state of high alert & chronic stress whilst running on empty with a sense of 'waiting for life' permeating our daily activity. Maybe relationships are suffering, crises in marriage or parenting, and an underlying angst of 'not living my truth'. Whether our experience is triggered by grief, loss, a significant traumatic event, or has been more of a gradual build, we know there's something not quite right, but it's become the norm with a painful pseudo-surrender to 'this must be it'.
Amy is a Nondual Psychotherapist and mentor working privately following ten years practicing as a Psychologist with NHS CAMHS in Scotland. Amy recognises healing and creating as synonomous and enjoys exploring the status quo in mental health care in relation to notions of 'normal functioning', 'disorganised', 'dysfunctional', and 'complex trauma', within societal and spiritual frameworks, and common dialogue. Amy works therapeutically within the ground of Nondual Therapy and integrates a range of evidence based therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Internal Family Systems Theory, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Solution Focussed Therapy and more general Depth Psychology (soul integration/individuation). She is also well versed in Deep Ecology and Permaculture Design and is passionate about healing, neuronal repatterning, and awakening to True Nature through direct experiencing and perception of the wider living natural world.
"I Am the unchanging, witnessing myself as all that changes"
So what is Nondual Integration?
Re-parenting to presence and the open sensing of experience
"As we guide the body-mind to sense into the full range of resonance in experience, without negation, we begin to feel the full symphony and simple joy, freedom and spaciousness of life. We see the light that we are radiate through us, and ordinary life appears as a whole new world. Again. Again. Again.
The secret? Recognise that this is all already the case "
What I know to be true is that there is a miraculously intelligent and organic movement of healing and release from suffering taking place for you through the experience of the bodymind as self concepts and ideas/interpretations about 'me' and 'the world' (based on personal stories of the past and fears about the future) are met with the simple fact of experiencing as the open space of awareness/presence - our shared being. The best way I can describe the process that takes place in the therapeutic space is a kind of 'psychophysics' in the context of the one single seer (observer) - I Am - direct experiencing.
Following yourself and your own truth is the pathway through which we remedy the experience of suffering that occurs when the mind feels disconnected from True Nature. 'Follow your resonance' is a principle that I am extremely passionate about and lies at the heart of my work, along with 'this too', and 'from knowledge to knowing'. If I would give any brief pointers to support the mind to begin or continue the experience of integrating into True Nature - this would be it.
Where particle meets wave, as reality observing, and being, itself - presence.
"every energy that shows up in your experience is a lightning bolt from God. It is pure divine shakti, and it is truth, and when you see it and own it as a vector of divine force, its a weapon in your arsenal. You're using it, but you're not doing something with it, you're using it by seeing it...seeing is doing. When you see what things are you've done it. So it's kind of like surfing. When you see these energies and you see the truth of it, you ride that truth and that is integrated to all the other energies, until you see the full field of the energies and you're surfing the whole thing, and then you dissolve as a separate surfer and its just this field of energy surfing itself" - Peter Brown
I would not express in my practice anything that I do not have direct experience of myself in my own healing and deepening into True Nature. I absolutely know that our experiences of trauma and poor mental health can be remedied through working within the ground of The Self (True Nature) and the unconditional sacred safety this provides. Being this clear, open, and unconditionally welcoming, gentle space with you, and the open release of suffering it offers along with resourcing all of the qualities it provides through YOUR deep organic and incredibly intelligent movement of healing, is a joy, an honour, and an incredible blessing - where all of your experience is welcomed with equanimity. By following your own experience of the suffering mind on its journey home to True Nature - through this miraculous experience that we name 'the body' - you can relieve yourself of the symptoms of suffering and reconnect with your own truth and flow with life.
Nondual Therapy & Mentoring
In Nondual Therapy, we inquire into your experience in a way that helps you to recognise the natural release and soothing of the heavy charge that lies within the energetic experience of anguish, distress and overall suffering of the psyche (this experience is commonly named 'the ego'). We do this together very naturally without any pressure or expectation to fix or change experience, supporting you to recognise the open space within which all experience is already changing. This open space is your True Nature, the clean and clear awareness that is always here but becomes apparently clouded over by the concepts and ideas of who and what we are, and what the world is, based on our experiences of the past. This 'space' unfreezes 'stuck' emotions as well as unraveling and deconstructing the beliefs and stories that have built up over time that serve to perpetuate and feed cycles of suffering. We are following a deep intelligence and organic movement of healing that is always here for us. This process also naturally unravels the personal idea of 'the small self' allowing for an experience of greater freedom , flow, peace, and vitality as the True Self is revealed.
"Thank you for sharing the beauty of Nondual Therapy and exploring the I Am with me. I am connecting and experiencing deeper awareness, loving consciousness, more clarity, and inner peace. It's been quite blissful! I am still learning how to express this knowing with clarity, but the awareness, expansion, and deep knowing has shifted my perspective and this is life changing! Thank you for guiding me home, to True Nature. I feel so much gratitude for the blessing you have brought me. Thank you."
"Amy just supports me to live and exist more peacefully. When I say peace, I mean peace with all things and all being welcome. When the people I know how much I've struggled hear I'm working with someone who is supporting me to exist peacefully nothing else is required, they trust you and your care"
"I have learned that my heart space feels amazing, and unlearned what I thought it felt like. I felt serene and safe and I knew that by accessing this part of myself I will be able to live a more true life"
"I think I knew this all 'in theory' but I had never really experienced it. The revelation is that love is an all encompassing experience that anyone can actually get to. I need to live from my heart, for myself and the world"
"you just had this presence about you that even though we were sharing words I slowly became aware of this overpowering feeling of connection and presence. I have had that sort of experience before but something was really unique in our experience. The session was everything one could ask for in being supported through heavy stuff and I'm really grateful"
"thank you so much, you have helped me a lot. You are an amazing teacher"
"Thank you, for the awakening of the sense of gratitude, awareness, and clarity that I have felt since the moment I left the retreat"
"opening up isn't easy for me, I feel like I've lost my way, but in that moment I had a glimpse of something far greater than me"
"I've just had my first session with Amy and my mind was taken to such profound places. I recognise that there is a lot of pain inside and a lot of healing to be done...and to be able to do this in such a spiritual way, I felt all this freedom and space open up in my mind"
"it has helped me very much knowing that you are not trying to force me to be a cog in the machine. Other mental health professionals that I have worked with in the past have made it feels as thought the goals is for me to be a "functional member of society" and to fulfil the needs of others rather than addressing my core needs. So therapists/counsellors would push to get me back to "normal" as fast as possible, sticking a plaster over the wounds rather than healing. I've found with you what has made me feel safest is you haven't pushed me in any direction, there's never been a sense of you having an agenda"
"In the past I have found that most therapeutic work is focused on "techniques" that seem to push away emotions and make me function, when what I have needed is to go deeper and heal the core"
"I really felt held in our session, I felt so comfortable and so safe with everything that I just wanted to share more and more. And when the emotions got really heavy I got the sense that you understood exactly what I needed in that moment. No words, no verbal reassurance, just being present and seeing me as I expressed some deep deep pain. It meant a lot to me that you just let me feel what I felt without saying anything. I just wanted to be seen"
