I have an engaged, body-mind relational approach, that I call Integrative Counseling. This approach builds on your strengths, and helps you cultivate self-awareness and find new perspectives, leading to a more satisfying and fulfilling life. Integrative counseling includes breathing and mindfulness practices, the development of body awareness, the experience of therapeutic touch, as well as verbal and emotional processing, depending on your needs. As a caring, well trained professional I help people to overcome anxiety, depression, relationship problems, physical pain, job stress, addiction, and life transitions in healthy, nurturing ways.
As a Counselor, Massage & Bodywork Therapist, Dance /Movement Therapist, and teacher and practitioner of Body-Mind Centering, I utilize a body-centered approach to facilitate your awareness of the relationship between your physical and psychological health. As we open our awareness to our bodies, and our inner conflicts, we can release what binds us.
I teach at Duke University, and I have taught at the University of North Carolina, Smith College, Esalen Institute, Omega Institute, and several colleges and Universities throughout the United States and Europe. I teach Body-Mind Centering at the Center for Integrative Therapy in North Carolina, SOMA in Paris France, and Moveus in Germany.

Janice Geller's Groups

Authentic Movement

Authentic Movement was developed by Mary Whitehouse, a dancer and psychotherapist who applied C.G, Jung's method of Active Imagination to movement. The form of Authentic Movement explores the relationship between a mover and a witness - the process of seeing oneself, and seeing another. The mover, eyes closed, learns to follow the deep impulses of his/her unique movement, emotions, memories, images and thoughts. While watching the mover, the witness tracks her/his responses to the mover, as a compassionate witness. The attention brought about by the relationship between the mover and witness allows for creative, growthful and spiritual aspects of both to emerge.

Body-Mind Centering

Body-Mind Centering (BMC) developed by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, OTR, is an experimental journey into the alive and changing territory of the body and consciousness. It is an experiential study based on the embodiment and application of anatomical, physiological, psycho-physical and developmental principles. An important aspect of the journey is discovering through direct experience all of the body systems (bones, muscles, organs, glands, nerves and fluids), embryological stages and developmental movement patterns. It is a study of the balance between one's inner awareness, and one's movement in the outside world, explored through movement, touch, perception, voice, and breath.

The Practice of Embodiment

The Practice of Embodiment leads to a more accepting and comfortable relationship to ones body, emotions and psyche. The group introduces several body-mind awareness practice including Authentic Movement, Body-Mind Centering, Yoga, Meditation, and Somatic Psychology. These practices open access to the aliveness that is available when we develop awareness to our moment-to moment experience; to the process of genuine acceptance, seeing clearly, and holding our experience with compassion
