Somatic Processing is a body-oriented psychotherapy which facilitates mental, emotional and physical healing using the body's innate wisdom. It allows natural, biological processes to unfold and find resolution.
The body's wisdom is to compensate and adapt to challenges, as they occur. Sometimes these responses, once meant to aid in our survival, persist in our nervous systems and remain unresolved. When this occurs, we are unable to fully generate the best version of ourselves and our lives are negatively impacted by this interference.
Somatic Processing can help you gain better self management, help you clear out old baggage from the past, teach you to have new experiences of yourself, generate healthier relationships and enable you to fulfill your full potential. Resolving these automatic sticking points enables you to live in your True Form.
Traditional counseling approaches typically relies on talking and insight to promote change, whereas Somatic Processing is a form of counseling that works with your own innate temperament and desire to grow and develop. This is a “body-up” approach versus a “head-down” approach to counseling. Both approaches have an important place in helping people heal. All too often clients come to a body-based counseling approach after plenty of “talk-therapy” looking for a deeper level of healing and resolution.
All of us experience times of overload when we successfully navigate the challenges and overcome the hurdles. These experiences build our resilience and broaden our capacity to face new and more difficult challenges in the future.
Then, there are other times when we face challenges and our nervous system is overwhelmed. It’s these times that we automatically design compensations that enable us to move forwards. These compensations often work in the short run, but take a toll on our energy and interfere with our optimal long term functioning.
Somatic Processing enables you to find resolution, explore and let go of the “baggage” you have been carrying on your life’s journey. You will move forwards unencumbered, which vitalizes you to grow and develop as you are naturally designed to do.
It is human nature to seek resolution and Somatic Processing can facilitate your growth.
