MIND-BODY PSYCHOTHERAPY

Mind-Body Psychotherapy focusses on the meaningful  interactions between mind, body and emotion and how these affect healing, health and wellbeing.  Mind-Body Psychotherapy utilizes both cognitive and somatic techniques to help bring awareness to how our body and mind 'talk' to each other (often unconsciously) through symptoms of pain, restriction and stress in the body, and the resultant negative thoughts and feelings attached to these experiences.  By becoming aware of our internal physical experience and then learning how to shift our body out of stress physiology into new patterns of healthy natural responses, we can experience relief, presence, calmness and a renewed sense of aliveness and vitality, with an improved positive outlook and resilient mindset.

Through Mind-Body Psychotherapy we can begin to feel safe, comfortable and at home again in our body, find relief from chronic pain and stress, and enjoy a greater sense of the naturally joyful flow state of being.
