Talking about your experience, particularly when it comes to trauma, is not for everyone.
And even when it is, it can be difficult to fully resolve the impact of your experience by simply talking about it. However, the body is a communicator like no other and it remembers much that the mind does not. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy allows the body to do the talking — through sensation, posture, gesture, and the way we move — often bringing to light the non-verbal story tucked neatly below the surface. By learning to listen to what your body is saying, real and meaningful change can occur.
Drawing from somatic therapies, neuroscience, attachment theory, cognitive approaches, and the Hakomi Method, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a leading mindfulness-based approach, grounded in Interpersonal Neurobiology. It can offer the kind of internal shifts and relief you may be looking for, with minimal cognitive effort.
This method not only allows you or your child to resolve existing trauma, but also teaches you how to use the body’s signals to deepen your understanding of yourself and those around you. Feel confident moving forward with tools that support greater mind-body awareness, empowering you and/or your child to attune to your nervous system, self-soothe/regulate, create meaningful relationships with others, and make positive life changes/choices aligned with your values.
