Somatic Movement Therapy
As a Somatic movement therapist finishing my training, I am offering sessions to the wider community.
Somatic Movement Therapy is a therapeutic system which meets and supports the client in their wholeness, whilst recognising their unique life context in both the complexity of the human experience and the vastness of their potentiality.
The system facilitates awareness of the client’s capacity to experience greater ease and flow and to live a deeper more meaningful authentic life by coming back into relationship with self via the vehicle of the body.
Somatic Movement Therapy, is an integrative, co-creative, holistic blend of wellness bodywork, somatic psychology, movement education, expressive arts and dialogue which help to facilitate and support positive change.
The term somatics is derived from the Latin word soma, meaning "the living body." Somatics is an approach to experience that accesses the full intelligence of our body and the subtle conversation of our subconscious in order to actualize our potential and support a deep inner process of healing. From an Embodied Flow perspective, healing is the processes of returning to our experience of wholeness. This sense of flourishing and well-being can be achieved by a range of practices that are validating, clarifying and self-expanding such as recognizing one’s optimal potential and strengths, identifying boundaries, providing a felt sense of agency, finding more ease and efficiency within the muscles and joints of one’s body, or bringing consciousness into one’s experience of their own body. This felt sense of self, also known as Embodiment, leads to an experience of being comfortable in one’s own skin and therefore able to engage with life more fully. Ultimately this facilitates: self-awareness, boundaries, self-esteem, emotional regulation, empathy, enhanced cognitive processing, easeful decision making of complex situations, body related self confidence, a greater sense of self-control, enhanced intuition, and a feeling of being both authentic and interconnected with others and the environment.
An Embodied Flow Somatic Movement Therapist fosters these benefits by empowering their students and clients to discover pathways, transmute obstacles, and build inner resources to reach their desired goals.
