Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing
"All emotions, even those that are suppressed and unexpressed, have physical effects. Unexpressed emotions tend to stay in the body like small ticking time bombs—they are illnesses in incubation."

— Marilyn Van M. Derbur

What is Somatic Experiencing?

Somatic therapy is a holistic approach that recognizes the connection between mind and body. It is based on the understanding that our physical sensations, emotions, and thoughts are interconnected and that addressing one aspect can have a positive impact on the others. In my practice, I use somatic therapy to help clients become more aware of their body sensations and emotions, and how they are related. By bringing attention to the present moment, my clients can learn to understand and release long-held physical and emotional tension. This can result in a greater sense of self-awareness, increased emotional regulation, and improved overall well-being.

Why Somatic Experiencing?

Somatic experiencing is a powerful therapeutic approach that helps individuals heal from traumatic experiences by accessing the body's natural healing abilities. Through somatic experiencing, patients can learn to regulate their nervous system and release tension, which can lead to reduced symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD. This technique promotes greater self-awareness and a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection, empowering clients to make positive changes in their lives. In my therapy practice, I specialize in somatic experiencing and offer a safe and supportive environment for patients to explore this transformative approach.
