Jurga

Body talks,

I hear it

Jurga is a person who chooses Life. Instead of living in her dreams, she transforms them into reality here and now - courageously facing inner and outer challenges. Therapeutic work is a resource that inspires her and endlessly teaches about being in harmony with the self and the other. 

Jurga has a long-standing experience of working with people. During the first decade of her working life, she focused on deepening the knowledge in Human Resource Management, working as a business consultant specialising in employee motivation and remuneration.  However, feeling a lack of deep and authentic connection with herself and others in this sphere, Jurga longed for a space where one could meet with our humanity, vulnerability and explore the depth of the inner world. Her experience suggested that finding answers within the mind  was not enough. Understanding what, why, how is great but transforming that into an embodied, practical experience which can produce real change is qualitatively another step. That is where Somatic Therapy entered Jurga’s life. 

After studying and applying Holistic Pulsing, Tibetan massage, and other bodywork techniques that have a more holistic approach, in 2017 Jurga enrolled in a three-year-programme of somatic therapy at theInstitute for Integrative Bodywork & Movement Therapy, London, UK from which she has since graduated. 

Jurga and her family live in Portugal, where she works with individual clients and groups face to face. She also facilitates individual Integrative Bodywork and Movement Therapy sessions online for clients around the world in English and/or Lithuanian. She has multicultural experience, is a mother of four children, two of whom are already independent adults.  

The first things that clients and colleagues notice about Jurga are her professionalism, attention to detail and sensitive, empathic presence. Being with her feels safe. For Jurga, no themes are forbidden and no questions or complaints are too foolish. Jurga will accompany her clients on their personal journeys with respect and compassion, and at a pace they are ready to travel.
