Therapy Groups & Peer Support In Ontario
Somatic (Body Movement) Psychotherapy Group
Hosted by Arthi Bala, RP (Qualifying)
Somatic therapy is a form of “body-centered” therapeutic approach which focus on the physical responses which occur in the body due to Trauma, Anxiety or Depression. It’s helps people overcome symptoms tied to trauma it may allow someone to become “unstuck” in the fight, flight or freeze response by releasing pent- up energy and to better cope with difficult bodily sensations, supressed emotions and can bring you into the present moment.
The principles behind somatic therapy: The mind and body are connected, so whatever is felt in the mind is thought to also show up in the body.
Somatic therapy involves clients working on feeling physical sensations in the body that are tied to past traumatic events, rather than only thinking through the events and emotions that were felt. The purpose is to access the body memory of the event, not the story itself. We do this through movements, journaling, meditation and artwork.
