  • Somatic Therapy allows for the understanding of connections between physical symptoms and emotional experiences where we can create a bridge of communication that links the language of the body and the verbal and cognitive language we speak - allowing integration between doing and being. With this holistic gentle holding we are able to open and expand previously pre-scripted and seemingly pre-destined physical and emotional patterns and take advantage of the possibilities that are truly available. In this way a person may grow and evolve - not just alter a behaviour or way of thinking.
