Traumatic injury has a major impact on the psychological systems of the body, often below belief and attitude. This can lead to long term debilitating effects, such as migraine, nightmares, anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship difficulties, disassociation and other symptoms related with post traumatic stress.
Resolving the symptoms of trauma requires specific somatic interventions that are different from those that are useful for working with the belief systems associated with developmental issues. The work is based on Sensorimotor Psychotherapy approach to resolving trauma, a method developed by Pat Ogden which is widely respected in psychological and psychiatric communities around the world.
Clients are encouraged to establish relaxation programs outside sessions, and to incorporate meditation as a part of their recovery.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is available from my Melbourne practice.
