Introducing ChaNan

An introduction to me and my work...

Hi, I’m ChaNan

I am a therapist, healer, teacher and poet and have been holding space for folk and guiding them with sensitivity for over 15 years. I hold a steady, safe space and specialise in helping to create deep embodied spaces within you. This means you then feel more able to be in the flow of your life without getting thrown off course by stress, burn out, spanners or old trauma.

A key part of this has been developing tools and techniques to help people who are highly sensitive to become robust and resilient; to find ways of being safely in their body without feeling overwhelmed. The end result has been these online courses.

I am a highly sensitive person and love to empower people to become at home in their bodies rather than feel overwhelmed by life and all the things they are feeling - whether from themselves or others.

I am a parent carer, a keen, hands off renegade gardener, paddle boarder and I love sewing and creating beautiful things. I am continually inspired by Earth, her seasons and what that brings to my writing and creativity. I love walking, have a dedicated yoga practice of over 20 years and love to curl up with a book. I find happiness in the simple things of life, whilst also fee confident in my self to expand into new things

Any questions please contact me on [email protected]

ChaNan Bonser's School of Self Care for Sensitive Folk offers short courses to help to develop resilience and to become robust in this modern world.


These courses will help you:

  • If you identify as a highly sensitive person you will find simple and easy to use exercises that will help you to become more grounded, centred and balanced.
  • If you have experienced or are experiencing a level of burn out especially from being in highly stressful environments, such as challenging or abusive relationships - whether that is work or familial, on a frontline, in medical care or activism, you will find these techniques incredibly helpful.
  • If you or you have a family member who are sensitive, neurodiverse or easily overwhelmed by people, places or situations you have found the right place.

I have been working in this field for the past 12 years, and started developing this course 8 years ago. These techniques are tried and tested, and I have been teaching them to clients for years, so I really know they work!

I have limited availability for one to one sessions if you feel some deep holding of space from me would be helpful.
