Founded by Céline Butté, Heart of Movement provides psychotherapy, supervision and training informed by years of somatic movement practice and a deep understanding of trauma.

C´éline is a qualified dance movement psychotherapist, supervisor, teacher and dancer with over 15 years experience.

Dance and movement practice are at the core of her work and life and form the ground on which her career stands.

She qualified as a dance movement psychotherapist with the University of Roehampton in 2002 and as a supervisor with the London Centre for Psychodrama in 2012.

Her approach is integrative and transpersonal, rooted in somatic principles and psychodynamic theory.

Her experience includes working with adults with a mental health diagnosis in community and acute NHS settings, with refugees and asylum seekers, parents and young children, and with children from different background.

She currently holds a private practice based in South London and works internationally across various settings, in clinics, studios, outdoors and remotely.


Céline offers

An opportunity to explore in a creative and safe environment. Celine held the space well. As a non-specialist in movement I felt free to work in my own way.
