About the Metamorphic Technique

The Metamorphic Technique is a simple practice that provides an environment in which we can transform feelings of limitation and move into an experience of greater freedom, and into new possibilities of who we are…

I use a light touch on your feet, hands and head, without having any intentions or outcomes for you in mind. I thus provide an environment free of direction in which you can just ‘be’. Your life force, guided by its innate intelligence, is free to move unimpeded out of old, repetitive patterns, into new forms that are a truer expression of who you are.

Your feet, hands and head are a reflection of the whole human being, and as I touch them I am touching the essence of life and its innate intelligence. At the same time the areas I touch reflect a time-line corresponding to your development in the womb. As I touch your feet, hands and head, I am also touching a beginning time for you, when both your potential and patterns were first seeded.

a new level of confidence and trust in life is also often felt as a person experiences for themselves the impetus of their life force

Transformation, or the movement from one form into another more complex, subtler form, is a natural, spontaneous movement happening all around us in every day life. It requires no direction on our part. However, our minds tend to put up obstacles in the way of our own transformation. I am offering a context in which these obstacles can be put aside, and the life within you can express itself as it wishes to – just as the acorn, falling to earth, draws what it needs from the soil, and guided by its life force, knows exactly how to grow into an oak tree.

The caterpillar transforms into the butterfly, the acorn into the oak. We find ourselves operating at a new level of being, in a new context…

  • The butterfly was already inherent in the caterpillar, the oak in the acorn.
  • Transformation is the natural unfolding of who we are.
  • Layers of beliefs and patterns that mask our essential reality loosen and fall away.

The Metamorphic Technique is not a therapy, nor do I as practitioner treat symptoms or specific conditions. I do not focus on removing energy blockages, but offer an environment in which you can experience your own life force at work. As any changes originate from within you, you can also experience a sense of your own autonomy.

What happens in a session?

I use a light touch on the sides of your feet, hands and head, and provide a space where you can ‘just be’. Some people may wish to talk, while others may enjoy taking time out.
A session usually lasts an hour. I can also offer 30 minute sessions.

Benefits of the metamorphic technique

You may be going through a period of transition and sensing changes afoot: You could be pregnant, moving house, changing career, experiencing relationship difficulties, a bereavement or illness. You could be feeling stuck or anxious, frustrated by repeating patterns of behaviour in your life. You might be fed up with people trying to fix or cure you. You might want to make deep inner changes without talking about it. You may want to experience being at one with yourself.

After sessions people have reported significant changes to their emotional, physical and mental well-being, or shifts in their life situation. Anxieties have been released as they have experienced life from a new perspective, and transitions have felt easier to navigate.

People have often experienced feeling more energised, or profoundly relaxed. They have expressed feeling re-sourced from a deep level of being, and have felt a new sense of self in their daily lives.

Time and again people receiving sessions have felt that they are living out more of their potential. A new level of confidence and trust in life is also often felt as a person experiences for themselves the impetus of their life force.

What people say about the
Metamorphic Technique…

“Thousands who have experienced the technique affirm that life is never quite the same once you step onto the metamorphic path.”

Jane Alexander ~ Daily Mail

“…it was this little known technique that dramatically changed my life for the better and set me on the road to improved wellbeing.”

Susan Clark ~ Journalist for national newspaper

“I still don’t know exactly how the Metamorphic Technique works, apart from the fact that it transformed me! It has changed me from someone who was fearful of life to someone who’s embracing it.”

Actor Des Hamilton, interviewed for The Evening Standard

Is it suitable for everyone?

Yes, it is self-empowering. It enables you to steer your own path. The technique can be received on its own or alongside conventional or complementary approaches.

Pregnant mothers, and ill and dying people, as well as all those going through life’s transitions, have felt greatly supported by this work, as they move from one way of being to another.

Families and couples have benefited from practising this easy to learn technique on each other, and have found that family life can be ‘smoothed and oiled on many different levels’ as old dynamics shift. Underneath it all, a beautiful ‘known’ connection can be rested in. Children often love and respond to this contact, and parents feel empowered in offering it to them.

The Metamorphic Technique has also been shared with both adults and children with special needs. It has also been used in hospitals, prisons, and with people who have addictions, eating disorders and stress-related conditions.

How many sessions will I need?

You are free to receive sessions according to your own preferences and needs.

You may like to have sessions weekly or fortnightly, or when you feel the need.

How was it developed?

The Metamorphic Technique has its origins in the work of Robert St. John, a British naturopath and reflexologist. He named his body of work Metamorphosis.

Gaston Saint Pierre, founder of the Metamorphic Association, studied and worked with Robert St John in the 1970’s. He saw the potential for the development of a practical tool that could easily be integrated into every day life, and which would allow for the realisation of our potential. He went on to further develop the work and created the term ‘The Metamorphic Technique’ to distinguish the new direction his work was taking.
