Body Psychotherapy (Biodynamic Psychotherapy)
Have you ever wondered why we associate anxious thoughts with “butterflies in the stomach” or guilty feelings with “a weight on our shoulders”? Our life story is imprinted in our minds and – mostly – our bodies: the way we stand, breathe and move reveals how we have experienced joy and pain in the past, and how we respond to life events in the present.
Body Psychotherapy (a main branch of which is Biodynamic Psychotherapy) is one of the oldest branches of therapy, dating back to the origins of Freud’s psychoanalysis. The fundamental assumption is that there is an inseparable link between the mind and the body, a link that defines the sense of “self” and the way we relate with “others”. In recent years, neuroscience has confirmed the body-mind connection, and offered evidence-based validation and new tools to body psychotherapy.
Body Psychotherapy combines talking therapy with embodied experience. It starts with a growing awareness of “what is” (how emotions and thoughts are reflected in the body) and follows with “what can become” (a long-lasting personal and relational transformation).
In a typical session, your therapist helps you identify deeply-rooted beliefs, feelings, and behaviours through observation and exercises around muscle tone, posture, and breathing. This gets you firmly grounded in your embodied present. From that position you can explore and experience with your therapist new ways of thinking, acting and relating. Body Psychotherapy is a process of deep change through mental, emotional and physical awareness.
