Mind-Body Connection

  

Recent developments in neuroscience, somatic psychology and trauma research are opening the door for an exciting synthesis of Eastern and Western approaches to healing. We are experiencing a historical shift from the traditional cognitive (top down) approach to therapy to an approach more focused on body awareness and regulation (bottom up). Traditional cognitive approaches often prove ineffective due to a client feeling unsafe, being disembodied, hypersensitive or dissociated. Bottom up approaches allow clients to begin the therapeutic process with a focus on psychoeducation, awareness and self-regulation allowing for a greater capacity to heal.
