Embodying Psychotherapy – Embodying Psychotherapy

Embodying Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy has a long tradition of helpfulness to clients, and trains practitioners in a broad and useful skillset.  Despite this, many therapists notice that some symptoms and conditions are intractable.  Many of us have noticed the absence of attention to the body in our training and our practices. Adding the body through body awareness, knowledge of the nervous system and use of somatic interventions adds dimension and fullness to psychotherapy, enhancing our effectiveness as therapists and supporting greater feelings of agency in our clients.  Because of this I developed Embodying Psychotherapy for psychotherapists and related disciplines to make greater use of embodiment in their therapy practices.  This brings together a number of skills to add to Psychotherapists already significant skill set.  Therapists can learn or deepen their knowledge of the nervous system and make use of bodily experience to access and transform psychological states.
Why add Embodiment to your Psychotherapy Techniques?
Adding somatic awareness and technique as well as embodied awareness of adult attachment strategies deepens psychotherapeutic work and meets clients at the level of the body and emotion, and provides an opportunity to sense and relate to implicit knowledge and strategies.  This aids clients to deepen and expand their relationship to themselves, have better understanding and resolution of symptoms, increase their self-care and their sense of agency in relation to themselves. With traditional talk therapy, at times symptoms lessen but do not resolve.  Greater embodiment allows you and your client to access component and supporting states of feelings and attitudes, supporting greater awareness and shift
