Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a body-oriented talk therapy that integrates verbal techniques with body-oriented interventions in the treatment of trauma, attachments, and developmental issues. It incorporates theory and techniques from psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, neuroscience and theories of attachment and dissociation.
Clients are often at the mercy of reliving the past and being stuck in old patterns of behavior that no longer serve them. Traditional psychotherapy alone often provides insight but not the tools and techniques to help clients break free from old patterns and change.
In Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, clients are helped to relate to their symptoms with mindful dual awareness and curiosity rather than automatic acceptance, therefore fostering both profound insight and lasting change. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a valuable technique that can help when others fail.
