Body Psychotherapy is a mind/body approach to counselling. It is also known as Somatic Psychology. It combines Eastern approaches to healing and Western approaches to therapy.  

There are a few basic premises in body psychotherapy. Those being:

  1. Any event that occurs impacts our whole being-physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual.
  2. Humans are unique energy systems and this energy is the form and expression of aliveness. Body psychotherapy pays detailed attention to human energy.
  3. Feeling and expression are seen as prime components of healthy functioning. Breath and movement re-establish the healthy flow of energy in the body.
  4. The body can be divided into energetic segments which store different memories, emotions, issues, and traumas. Body psychotherapy can re-access any event that happened to our body.

Body Psychotherapy leads to:

  • Aliveness
  • Authenticity
  • Connectedness
  • Personal fulfillment
  • Self-awareness
  • Well-being
