An approach that combines the Active Listening Skills from Carl Rogers with
the Receptive Practice Ground from Mindfulness and The Hakomi Method, that supports you to come closer in and inhabit yourself more deeply and authentically.
What is Deep Listening with Jenny Rose Smith?
Deep Listening is a way of being with you that supports you to come into a practice of being with yourself more fully, both when you are alone and when you are with others.
Deep Listening a practice of:
A practice of learning to trust the wisdom of gently coming closer in with our direct experience.
A practice of slowing down and creating space so that we can receive ourselves more fully and meet ourselves more authentically.
A practice of letting go of agendas so that we can be led by what is truly alive in the present moment.
A practice of being with ourselves and each other in ways that are spacious, present and real.
We explore this together in such a way that our experiences can be received with kindness, curiosity and patience.
Deep Listening supports you to:
Attune more fully to the felt sense of your present experience.
Unlearn patterns of overly listening to conditioned thinking.
Create space and safety around places of contraction and tightness.
Feel more deeply at home in your own body & in the wider body of nature.
Come into more conscious connection with the source of what you are.
This tender and powerful approach soothes and softens anxiety's signature tune of a closed heart and reactive mind.
Over time it can root us back down into the safety of a more regulated nervous system, one that can welcome, allow and integrate the different energies that continue to move through us. This then invites us to begin to rest more fully in ourselves, whilst receiving the subtle yet strong holding from life's embrace.

What can I expect from a Deep Listening session?
Deep Listening sessions combine traditional listening with simple meditative awareness, body tracking and a sharing of any feelings, insights or reflections that want to be expressed.
Typically, a session may start with us landing in together with some verbal exchange to support an initial connection. We might go deeper into exploring things verbally or we may incorporate simple practice to settle the nervous system and then dropping in more deeply to what is being experienced in and through the body. The Hakomi Method offers very contained micro exercises to explore something in more depth and to bring awareness to places in us that may have tendenci
The embodied connection with yourself is primary; the issues that this leads you to share about are secondary. The pace is deliberately slow, and will be set by what feels manageable in your system.
Sessions will be underpinned by gentle encouragement to deepen into your own connection, guidance, knowing and wisdom.
Some people choose Deep Listening sessions to explore very personal experiences and others bring more .
'I loved our session Jen. Your deep listening felt full of - and elicited in me - warmth, respect, trust and embodied intelligence.
It prompted a new frame on an issue I wanted to look at, and your gentle questing helped bring forward the resources I needed.
I highly recommend your
'I cannot recommend Jenny highly enough and I am extremely grateful to have been put in touch with her at a moment in my life where I was floundering and shrinking.
She has shown me a different way of being with myself, a gentler and kinder way'. AC
'Jenny has such a grounded and calming presence, and a huge heart, and also, a warm sense of humour .
Through her ongoing support, I have felt that I’ve been able to nurture and allow these same qualities in myself.
I always feel totally safe, and supported by Jenny, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone who may be thinking of working with her.'
'The space Jenny held enabled me feel so safe and loved that my issue was able to arise and flow out of me right
from the beginning of our session. There is something just so powerful about being truly heard and understood
that in itself allows our issues to unravel and Jenny’s capacity to hear, hold and reflect back both what is said
and what is not said is illuminating. I left the session feeling immensely complete, because all the scattered
pieces within had the opportunity to come out and land.'
