Body psychotherapy is an approach to therapy that invites us to connect more fully with who we really are rather than who we believe we should be.
Anyone who has 'tried to change' will know that will-power and good resolutions tend to have minimal impact. The more force we use with ourselves the more entrenched we tend to become. Instead of force this process invites us to become more in tune with ourselves and discover a different way of being in the world.
We often find that mental insight alone is not enough to transform recurring problems. Therefore, in addition to thoughts, we pay attention to physical sensations, images, feelings, breathing patterns and spontaneous impulses arising from the body.
Change is something that happens naturally as we become more connected with who we really are; we find ourselves making different choices - choices which arise from a healthier, more harmonious and empathic relationship with our self.
Body psychotherapy is an approach where the present moment is seen as a gateway to our deepest self, to extraordinary wisdom and our innate capacity to heal.
