About Jon Bauer BSc   SEP

It strikes me that whilst there’s heaps of knowledge in the world, wisdom is finite. One item of wisdom is that working with others, for the benefit of others, is a source of happiness. And this feels true. I’ve explored many professions, including the serious and successful pursuit of a creative bent (writing), but nothing is as important to me as the work I do with clients.

What’s more, working with their nervous system seems more powerful to me than walking the long and complicated corridors of the mind. Talk therapy is sometimes effective, and a part of the landscape, but my own healing exploded when I found SE. I had experiences that were categorically deep, effective, and that changed me for the better. Quickly. So it feels very exciting to share that with others.

There’s always a moment during a client’s first or second (or third!) session when they look at you, and you can see the recognition on their face. The recognition that something gentle and powerful is happening to them, and their bodies are the ones orchestrating it. I love that moment. I had a first moment like that too, when my body showed me what it could do to heal my body, my nerves, and my mind. And I’ve not really looked back since.

Our bodies are a source of wisdom, insight, and healing, as well as the source of so much of what we struggle with in life. But it’s a worthy struggle, and a juicy and important part of being alive.

I am very experienced, compassionate, but I don’t mess about. I’m here to help you get better and I am honest and real with you. There’s also laughter, as good work needn’t always be serious work — it can be human and connected. So I won’t sit there nodding softly and asking you ‘how that is for you’. I’ll meet you in your struggle with my own passion and experience. We’ll team up, fiercely.

I am well-trained, with a good grounding and training in somatic work (Somatic Experiencing), trans-generational trauma (Family Constellations), and altered-state work (IPT). This means the use of psychedelics, MDMA, ketamine, and even cannabis to facilitate deep and effective trauma work (I do not work illegally). I also have a very good knowledge of Internal Family Systems, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Psychodynamic therapy (Jung and Freud). I am loosely affiliated as a therapist on Imperial College’s clinical trials with psilocybin, and I am experienced in Holotropic and other forms of breath work. I am familiar with Neurofeedback. I believe I am near but not at the forefront of much of what is new and most effective in psychology today, and I love what I do.

Call  07960 745 584 for a chat. I’ll probably arrange a free, short, zoom meeting with you.
