Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a non-touch body based therapy. In this type of therapy, clients are asked to mindfully explore their bodily experience. Movement, five sense perception, posture, and paying attention to internal sensations are all used to heal maladaptive defensive patterns and other natural physical cycles that may have been disrupted or disturbed by past events.
By incorporating the body, clients are able to access a deeper part of themselves that talk therapy alone cannot always reach. Through this type of counselling clients are able to release themselves from long held patterns of behavior that were impeding their ability to fully engage with life.
