Dance of Soma & Psyche IV: The Body as a Resource in Psychotherapy
A two-day module that explores how to utilize the body as a resource in psychotherapy. We now know that working with the body is essential in the healing of trauma, yet in today’s society we tend to neglect the innate wisdom of the body, leading us to disconnect from its very source of healing.
This training will enhance the repertoire of somatic interventions that you can apply in your psychotherapeutic work, as well as working with the body creatively.
The course covers:
Helping clients to connect to resourceful states through the body
Working with voice and movement to get in touch with and give expression to emotions
Exploring and strengthening the compassionate part of self through embodiment
Learning tools for transforming difficult sensations and emotions that clients hold in their bodies, such as sadness, loss and grief.
A transpersonal approach to healing, using visualisation as a way to connect with the body
Working somatically with opposite states to utilise the body’s natural healing tendencies
Exploring how your own body can be a resource in your practice
This module may be taken individually, or as a part of a year-long course leading to certification.
"Liberating, surprising and releasing. From a personal point of view this came at a good time for me and enabled me to release a lot of emotion in an environment that felt incredibly contained and well held."

"I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the course this weekend. I found it highly informative and I absolutely loved the experiential nature of it. I really got a sense of how useful this approach would be with clients who struggle to get out of their analytical over-thinking minds. On a more personal note, I feel there's been a bit of a switch in me and I've noticed that I've been moving, stretching and even dancing more!!! For that, I'm very grateful!!
Thank you again for sharing your professional knowledge in such an interesting and supportive way."
FM - Psychodynamic Psychotherapist
"Thank you both for such a well thought out and 'put together' weekend. I was very touched by the sensitivity and empathy in which the exercises were presented and taught. For me, these new skills were just what I needed to put into my own 'toolbox' for my workshops. Fabulous! Huge thank you."
