MedhiMehdi Darvish Yahya offers Perfect Touch. He combines his expertise in verbal and non-verbal psychotherapies and his training as a bodyworker to heal your trauma with your pleasure; it is your guidance that makes the touch perfect. When the soul is frightened and the body is frozen in a chronic state of agitation or numbness, the body needs gentle invitations to house the soul again. While the ‘talking cure’, as practiced in conventional counselling, has helped to some extent, it has neglected the wholeness of the body, mind, and soul. Now there is a sustainable way.

Mitchell Carlin is an experienced psychotherapist and bodyworker.  Located in the Mid-Hudson Valley of New York, Mitchell promotes somatic education and awareness in his practice, Phoenix Somatic Therapies.
How do sexuality and eroticism manifest in your life? Engaging this inquiry within safe and concurring boundaries, and through dialogue, focused exercises and exploratory bodywork, clients may address issues of body acceptance, sensual awareness, intimacy and vulnerability, erotic expression and pleasure, increased orgasmic potential, and by addressing the psychological and sexual complexities of trauma, dysfunction, desire, voice, and relationship.
Like the Phoenix, the legendary symbol of renewal, this exploration can be transformative – an engagement with the healing fire of self-exploration, self-acceptance, and empowerment; releasing beliefs and practices that no longer serve you, and rising anew.
