Why should I have Body Psychotherapy?
Body Psychotherapy aims to connect a person to a more constant access to the vital flow of his/her existence.
Michael Randolph – On Vitality
in The Handbook of Body Psychotherapy & Somatic Psychology
Body Psychotherapy reaches the places that other psychotherapies don’t.
It is particlarly good for people who would like to be more in touch with their bodies:
- Those who suffer the consesquences of early (attachment) trauma where there aren’t any explicit memories
- Those who find it difficult to have to couch their feelings in words
- Those who would like to feel more alive.
Body Psychotherapy is truly holistic and treats the whole perspn – not just a problem.
Body Psychotherpay is usually open-ended in-depth psychotherapy but some practitioners offer short-term interventions.
