Somatic Therapy: Healing Through Embodied Wisdom

Somatic Experiencing Therapy is a gentle and effective approach that harnesses the power of the mind-body connection to resolve trauma and stress-related symptoms. By tapping into the body's innate wisdom and self-regulatory mechanisms, Somatic Experiencing Therapy offers a pathway to release stored trauma energy and restore a sense of safety and well-being.

Embracing the Mind-Body Connection in Somatic Therapy

Somatic Therapy, also known as Somatic Experiencing Therapy, is a holistic and integrative approach that recognises the profound interplay between the mind and body in the healing process. Grounded in the understanding that trauma and stress can become trapped in the nervous system, Somatic Therapy works by facilitating the release of stored tension and restoring the body's natural self-regulatory mechanisms. By gently guiding individuals to reconnect with their body sensations, emotions, and beliefs, we promotes a deeper understanding of the impact of trauma and stress on both physical and psychological well-being. Through this process, individuals can regain a sense of safety, resilience, and empowerment as they harness the innate wisdom of their bodies to heal and transform.

Personalised Treatment Plan: Duration and Frequency of Somatic Therapy

Your healing journey is guided by a personalised treatment plan, which includes considerations for the duration and frequency of sessions. Typically, each session lasts approximately 60 minutes, providing ample time for deep exploration and integration. The frequency of sessions is determined in collaboration with your Somatic Therapist and is tailored to your specific needs and goals. While some individuals may benefit from weekly sessions for ongoing support and progress, others may prefer a more spaced-out approach with biweekly or monthly sessions. Your therapist will work closely with you to create a session schedule that aligns with your preferences and optimises your healing process.

Techniques or modalities used in Somatic Therapy



Utilising conscious breathing techniques, Somatic Therapy helps regulate the nervous system, reduce stress, and promote relaxation. Breathing exercises enhance self-awareness and provide a powerful tool for self-regulation, allowing individuals to manage emotional states and promote well-being.


Body-Oriented Psychotherapy

In these sessions, we integrate principles from body-oriented psychotherapy modalities, such as Hakomi, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, or Body-Mind Centering. These approaches use body awareness, movement, and mindfulness to address underlying emotional patterns and promote holistic healing.


Embodied Awareness

Somatic Therapy focuses on cultivating embodied awareness, fostering a deep connection between body and mind. Through various practices, individuals develop the ability to attune to their bodily sensations, emotions, and inner wisdom, promoting self-discovery and healing.
