1:1 Somatic Psychotherapy

Somatic psychotherapy is a body-centered therapy that incorporates our whole being - our mind, emotions, body and spirit.  It weaves together elements of talk therapy along with body awareness, gentle breath practices and mindful movement to invite a deeper connection with ourselves.

​​In a typical session, we begin with some grounding and setting our intention for our time together. Grounding  is our ability to be present in the here and now.  A simple grounding practice might be pressing our feet into the floor and noticing what's around us.  During our session we may invite some gentle breath practices and mindful movements to help you connect with your deeper experience.  It will always be your choice as to how much or how little you wish to participate in these practices.

​​

Over time, we can learn to develop an awareness of our body's messages while safely exploring our thoughts, feelings and emotions.  Many of our present day concerns can have their roots in our distant past.  Often, previous traumatic or overwhelming experiences can remain trapped in our body for years and become reactivated during present times of stress.

We will also explore your natural inner resources - the strengths, gifts and resilience you already have inside you - to help create an inner place of safety and stability that is there for you when you need it.  These are tools for life.

​​

Change and growth require an ongoing commitment to ourselves and our healing process at a pace that is right for each individual.
