About Breath



Breath moves within us. It moves us and connects us to everything that is alive - we simply cannot be without it.


For most of us breathing is an unconscious habit. However, breath is so much more than just an oxygen supply.


It is through breath that we are connected to our essence, to each other and to life itself. Breathing is a total experience taking place not only on the physical level but permeating the whole being. It is an unceasing and rhythmic movement shared by every living thing in creation; it is life flowing through us, life being given to us with every breath anew.


Our breath is extremely sensitive and responsive to every moment, to the slightest change in surroundings and conditions or emotions, hence it is so easy to disturb and upset its natural flow. When we have lost the connection to this primal movement of life, we - and simultaneously our breathing - are no longer able to respond freely and spontaneously to any changes.


We need to pause and listen within, to bring attention to our breathing, and allow it to lead us to our core and reconnect us with our natural rhythm.


Breath is by nature  nourishing, supporting, moving, flowing, transforming, healing and creative and can therefore enhance these processes within us.


Breath is our companion for life and will always be there for us - what if we could be there for it, inviting and welcoming the breath as a guest of honour?

Westhill Highgate Consulting Rooms Therapists & Practitioners: Toni Biagi

Toni Biagi CBT Psychoterapist North London


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in Highgate, North London


I provide a psychotherapy service for people that are experiencing problems such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, social phobia, panic disorder, anger problems and self-esteem issues. 


What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the way that we think/perceive situations determines the way we feel and behave.


A misconception of CBT is that it is a form of positive thinking. CBT is not about thinking positively about negative situations/experiences.  CBT is about thinking about negative situations/experiences realistically and logically. Therefore CBT  identifies unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours that stem from viewing situations/experiences unrealistically and illogically.  Once these unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours have been identified they are challenged and helpful thinking patterns and behaviours are encouraged to be developed.  CBT argues that by changing unhelpful thinking patterns and behaviours this in turn leads us to experience healthy negative emotions rather than unhealthy negative emotions which enables us to overcome our problems. 


The relationship between the therapist and client is collaborative and all aspects of therapy are explicit. Hence, the therapist and client work together by identifying problems and specifying goals that will enable the client to overcome their problems.


Homework assignments are a central feature of CBT as it is argued that in order for a person to overcome their problems they need to practice the techniques that they have learned during sessions and put behavioural changes in place.
