Body-Centered Psychotherapy

“In our bodies, in this moment, there lives the seed impulses of change and spiritual growth we seek, and to awaken them we must bring our awareness into the body, into the here and now” 

~ Pat Ogden ~

Body-Centered psychotherapy is an experiential therapy based on the idea that we store or hold information and emotions in our bodies thus it is a therapeutic approach that integrates the physical body into the therapy session. Said another way, our bodies have a kind of memory for experiences and feelings that are reside within us. This is a process to assist an individual in recognizing the intimate relationship between the human body and their psychological well-being. Body-Centered Psychotherapists view the body as a most needed resource for self-discovery and healing.

The mindfulness, self-awareness and understanding gained in this process can assist you to develop a deep inner sense of self-knowing and personal growth,  to reduce anxiety and depression, to make healthy decisions, to set boundaries in relationships, and to feel grounded and more deeply yourself.
