Somatic Attachment Therapy
Somatic Attachment Therapy is a body-centered, attachment based approach to healing that is both kind and compassionate as well as intensive. This approach includes focus and practice on the soma, our "felt sense" that supports a greater sense of aliveness, healing, and general feeling of wholeness. Sessions are paced individually, according to the needs and preferences of each unique person participating.
Clients are supported and guided to look inward, develop a deeper sense of their embodied experiences, and how they can use this awareness to encounter, include, and heal wounds. This approach is founded on the belief and principle of the body's inherent capacity to heal by including with compassion what is present. It is through this compassionate inclusion that the conditions for change are enabled and activated, creating a natural environment for change and flow to be restored.
Break Old Habits
So much of our lives are lived out of habit, even when those habits do not necessarily serve our best interest. Through examining our automatic thoughts, feelings, and reactions in a compassionate, yet more conscious light, we learn we actually have choices.
We begin to see gaps and junctures between our thoughts, feelings and reactions. This allows us to see where we usually opt for the same patterns and habits, and gives room for us to challenge those.
When we experiment with new choices, options we never knew we had, we start to see different results. We see our lives take a turn in a direction that somehow carries us to a place that feels more real, free, and yes happy.
I believe happiness and joy are natural states to be discovered as we walk this earth. I believe it is this pursuit that is our deepest drive and motivation and yet so many of us find ourselves lost and deeply unsatisfied.
Through the process and journey of therapy, you will be able to access a realm of joy and happiness you may not have thought possible. This is a deep joy in both the small and mundane as well as the magnificent and lofty. This is the joy of a life fully experienced, through a more healed and wider lens.
