The content of individual sessions is based upon what each person needs, their characterology, unique traits, their struggle and their aspirations. An individual session usually involves some counselling and often some type of working with the body. This could be breathing exercises, focussed movement or postures. Other sessions may involve mindfulness or trauma release exercises. These exercises help to strengthen your life force and build an increased capacity for joy, love and pleasure.
Body Psychotherapy is centred on the philosophy that our body holds the history of our life experiences. Some of our more painful experiences form defence patterns that are held in our body and personality. Reich referred to these physical and emotional patterns as our characterology. Our behaviour is influenced by our characterology and this is why many people experience the same painful patterns in their life. Patterns such as abandonment, rejection, betrayal, failed relationships, depression and/or anxiety.
By working with the body-mind we are able to gently challenge these defence patterns, creating lasting change, improved emotional wellbeing and vibrancy. This approach is a process and, just as these defence patterns were created over time, healing also takes time, but it is time well worth it. Many clients report positive changes in their intimate relationships, finding their life purpose, increased wellbeing and physical health, and experiencing peace, enjoyment and passion for life.
