Deep Listening Sessions
What is Deep Listening with Jenny Rose Smith?
Deep Listening is a practice.
A practice of learning to trust the wisdom of gently coming closer in to yourself.
Together we explore this in such a way that you can receive your experience with kindness, curiosity and patience rather than bracing or hardening against what is here.
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 within which we are all held.
To come into 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. in doing so, we can begin to rest more fully in ourselves whilst receiving the subtle yet strong holding from life's embrace.

Working With Me
I work short, medium or long term with people, and offer initial stand alone Deep Listening sessions to explore and experience the work and to see if it feels right to work together.
Sessions are weekly or fortnightly and 60 minutes or 90 minutes depending on the pace that you prefer and that feels right for what you want to explore.
Ideally we work at the same time of the week for each session.
If after the first session you would like to continue with Deep Listening you can book blocks of either 3 x 90 minutes or 6 x 60 minutes. These blocks can be repeat booked over the time we work together.
Alternatively there is an option of setting up a BACS transfer and agreeing a weekly or fortnightly time for an open ended period.
60 minute sessions are £55
90 minutes session are £75

I am also offering a three session series at the moment for people who would appreciate a deeper and more
embodied exploration of their relationship to uncertainty / anxiety. See here for more info
What can I expect from a Deep Listening session?
Deep Listening sessions combine 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 a verbal exchange to support an initial connection, followed by a simple practice to settle the nervous system and then dropping in more deeply to what is being experienced in and through the body.
The embodied connection with yourself is primary; the issues that this leads you to share about are secondary. The pace is deliberately slow, and 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.
Most sessions are focussed on the relationship that you have with yourself, and how to strengthen your capacity to come closer in to your experience as it moves through your body, your feelings, your mind and your energy field.
'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 sessions!' CM
'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.'
