Hisako Morioka (1955)
Hisako Morioka has a refined and developed perceptiveness. Nothing escapes her attention. Just by looking at a client she will perceive the core issue underneath the difficulties that this person experiences. Minute body postures tell her more about the client than a long story told.
Seeing so much, understanding so much, and also through her own life experiences, she has developed a great compassion for the people around her, for her clients, for their difficulties. Clients feel safe and understood by her — and they are.
In her work, Hisako Morioka brings in a sparkling inventiveness and originality. Her interventions are often spontaneous and seem to come from another dimension. When she facilitates constellations or during her private sessions she will do things that no one else would think of, that are unusual and out of the blue, and very often it is exactly the intervention that suddenly brings total clarity, that breaks through an impasse and leads towards resolution.
Her greatest asset, however, is the space she creates. Through her presence she creates and holds a space of safety, focus, concentration, openness and attention. As a result the work reaches great depth and intensity.
