"There are two kinds of suffering....
the suffering we run from because we are unwilling to face the truth of life and the suffering that comes when we're willing to stop running from the sorrows and difficulties of the world. The second kind of suffering will lead you to freedom."
What is a somatic, psychotherapy session....
it is a body-centered psychotherapy that is based in focused awareness. This modality utilizes body sensations, feelings and emotions to explore the inner landscape of past experiences and traumatic events. The process is a curious exploration, in which the practitioner brings a loving presence, a witnessing and a capacity for the other to be seen and heard.
The combination of mindfulness and presence, from the practitioner, creates space for unconscious material to surface allowing for integration of the past into the person’s nervous system pathing new neural pathways in the brain. This new information allows the client to repair and heal, creating new opportunities for growth and expansion.
