Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a gentle, non invasive, body oriented psychotherapy that is helpful for the healing of trauma, attachment and developmental wounds. It draws on contemporary, science based understandings of the human brain, behaviour and experience. This somatic psychotherapy works with the understanding that we do not experience pain, trauma, loss, shame and grief just in our head, but also in our body.
I was drawn to Sensorimotor Psychotherapy through my years of study and practice of bodywork, yoga and mindfulness. I have discovered it helps understand, and disentangle the organisation of our experience, heal our wounds, transform habitual, automatic responses and attitudes, and become a more integrated ‘whole’ person.

Is there a difference between online Sensorimotor Psychotherapy sessions and face to face Sensorimotor Psychotherapy sessions?
Great question! Some folks are concerned that online psychotherapy sessions might not match the same experience as face to face (in the same physical room) psychotherapy sessions. They’re right – they don’t.
I have worked as online psychotherapist for a number of years and found that, like any therapy, the most important factor in achieving success is collaboration and communication. Of course, there are limitations working online. I won’t always be able to pick up on all body language, such as feet and hands – but I’ll encourage you to let me know when you notice things moving and shifting! Creative solutions can and do grow from limitations (and it can be fun too!). In addition to the limitations, there are also advantages. For example clients can find some things easier to say from behind a screen. As a result working online can actually deepen connections and lead to exciting explorations, of both relationship, and self. Furthermore, if you are working from home, having an online therapy session means you might not have to rush out onto the streets post-session. This can allow you time to process and assimilate the work that has been done during the session. Read more here on how to make a great video call.
