The holistic approach to psychotherapy I use as a body psychotherapist recognises that our thoughts, emotions and sensations are intimately and deeply connected. Body psychotherapy offers a way to explore life's struggles, challenges and experiences from the perspective of a sense of connection and wholeness.
Following the thread of sensations and images can reveal thoughts and emotions. Likewise following thoughts and emotions can give rise to sensations and images. As we follow these threads of experience with patience and awareness, subtle changes occur, giving rise to further experiences, and so the process continues. As experiences previously hidden beneath the level of awareness come into consciousness, we are changed, sometimes in a profound way.
The aim is for you to find your own unique way to access your inner resources as fully as possible at any given moment, helping you to feel supported, nurtured and enriched from within. This can bring a sense of mind, body and soul working more in harmony with one another. The process is supported to unfold at your own pace by the presence of the therapist and the therapeutic relationship.
Psychotherapy can help you to discover, understand and integrate your experience of your inner world, enabling you to develop a wider range of choices about how you relate to yourself, other people and the world around you.
