To celebrate the launch of the new book Every Body Tells a Story by Liz Kalinowska and Daška Hatton, please join us for an indepth conversation on some of the themes and ideas that they investigate in their work.
“Reading this book reminded me of my own very positive experience of this work, No question should the need arise I will return for more treatment.”
Chris McVie, Fleetwood Mac
“An interesting insight to the work of these healers and the compassion and thought they bring to their clients.”
Susie Orbach, psychotherapist and author of Bodies….
“A fascinating account of ten sessions of Craniosacral Therapy. Written in the form of first person accounts from the perspectives of client, therapist and the authors, it takes the reader on a journey through their inner worlds, and clearly demonstrates the power and subtlety of a form of therapy which connects body and mind so well.”
Robin Shohet, Psychotherapist and Author
In January 2016, Liz Kalinowska and Daška Hatton established Joint Practice, a new way of working together. One of their first projects have been co writing a book, Every Body Tells a Story, which examines the therapeutic process from both sides of the treatment couch.
Describing a unique journey through ten bodywork sessions from the standpoints of a fictional client ‘Anna’, and her therapist, ‘Sarah’, we take you behind the scenes to witness the client’s voyage of discovery, and how the encounter appears to her therapist during the course of treatment. The book shows how the perspectives of both participants develop and widen through their shared experiences and examines the ups and downs of the therapeutic relationship. Boundary, transference and trust issues are explored as Liz and Daška bring a female perspective to the process and share their own experience of more than 40 years in practice. They use examples from myth and legend which place the work in a wider context.
Liz Kalinowska (FCSTA, RCST) is a Registered Craniosacral Therapist and supervisor with more than 20 years’ experience of working with adults, children and babies. She has also trained in Osteopathy, Dietary Therapy and Counselling. She is a leading teacher in the United Kingdom and runs regular workshops in London.
I first came across the Alexander Technique in 1994 as a way of working with an inexplicable period of depression that seemed to be taking over my life. I was surprised that this method of so called “bodywork” was in fact one of the most mentally stimulating and rewarding things that I had ever done and I was intrigued enough to train to become a teacher. In addition I am a registered Craniosacral Therapist and have a Certificate in Foundations of Counselling & Psychotherapy.
