Founded on the principle of the body and mind working in functional unity, Body-Centered Psychotherapy describes therapeutic approaches that integrate a client’s physical body into the therapy process.
Also referred to as Somatic Psychotherapy, this is a process that recognizes the intimate relationship between the human body and the psychological well-being of a person. Body-Centered Psychotherapists view the body as a resource for self-discovery and healing.
As a Body-Centered Psychotherapist, I help you access your innate somatic wisdom in order to better understand and treat your concerns and help you heal. Incorporating mindful awareness, touch, breathing, and movement techniques to address a wide range of mental, emotional, relational and physical health concerns.
Body-Centered Psychotherapy gives us access to memories, emotions, and beliefs that are otherwise beyond words and cognition. If you have struggled to understand how your body and mind are seemingly on different pages, Body-Centered Psychotherapy can get them communicating again.
Unresolved trauma, depression, and anxiety can affect the body in many different ways. Chronic pain, muscle aches, excessive fatigue, and insomnia are just a few of the sensations that may be associated with concurrent mental health challenges. Exploring the psycho-emotional layer of these conditions may lead to greater self-awareness, self-regulation, distress tolerance, and living a fuller, more vibrant life!
