Why choose Anwar?
Anwar works with clients by focusing on their individual needs by creating a deeply personal, healing and safe space through the power of touch and listening. He has a unique ability from the fusion of all his training and highly intuitive nature to support and guide the mind, body and soul so the integrated session can be anything from mellow realignment with oneself to a powerful ‘just let go’ experience.
Whether issues are from daily activities through to life changing events or we have become too invested in our stories and our ‘truth’, life can take its toll and the body creates personal holding patterns which then manifests further physical, mental and emotional health problems. Anwar instinctively supports the process of regulating emotional intensity and then releasing the emotional holding patterns for that uniquely personal path towards complete integration.
During the sessions the person can feel safe in their body and go on to assert healthy boundaries to feel happier and safer in this world. A good life is one in which we are in a healthy, honest, relationship with ourselves. Anwar’s path is to facilitate and hold the space for people on that journey.
His journey into holistic therapies started with a personal quest of healing and spiritual seeking starting with mindfulness disciplines, in the form of long meditation retreats in his early 20’s. The life long passion to help others opened up as he travelled, seeking opportunities to learn and grow.
If Anwar was intrigued by a teacher or technique he would seek out those to further his personal development and learning. Fascinated by the variety of styles of massage birthed from different cultures and traditions he studied shiatsu, reflexology, Thai massage, ayurvedic acupressure massage, various forms of abdominal massage, deep tissue, lymphatic drainage, Hawaiian lomi lomi techniques, muscle rebalancing, physiotherapy techniques and many more body centred therapies.
Finding that acupuncture could really speed up the healing process for chronic pain conditions which required nerve and muscle rehabilitation, he trained as an acupuncturist with 6 months intensive clinic tuition at mobile pain clinics in India.
Becoming more curious and observing first-hand how the body holds onto and expresses emotions in its physical structure, and knowing this was true from years of working with bodies he studied in neuro-linguistic programming and holistic counselling so as to study patterns of emotional holding to enable him to work with clients at an even deeper level.
Committed to continual professional development and education the extensive training in bodywork put him at an advantage for working with body based counselling and psychotherapy techniques, such as somatic awareness techniques. Very quickly he gained a reputation for somatic based counselling working with clients who had often been referred by psychotherapists.

How it works.
Anwar’s multi-disciplinary learnings allows him to respond fully to client’s specific needs. The fluidity of movement is a subtle weaving of different techniques and modalities across all the disciplines putting him in a unique position to be able to find the right treatment combination to match the needs of individual person so it works with the whole person – in mind, body and spirit
Generally people who like his work have a keen interest in personal development – they may simply be passionate about bodywork, or have chronic pain or deep emotional response patterns, such as trauma, anxiety or unexplained symptoms. Some people come just for the bodywork, and some come for a more therapeutically integrated experience in which Anwar works with all the layers of holding.
A session can be a counselling based session which involves talking and body awareness exercises, when working with physical pain Anwar works with the structure of the body, relaxing and re-balancing muscles, or he explores psychosomatic elements of chronic conditions. Whatever is needed Anwar works with clients to help facilitate change however and wherever they find themselves.
