WHAT IS BIODYNAMIC BODY PSYCHOTHERAPY?
The term ‘bio’ refers to life energy and ‘dynamic’ means the free flowing of this energy.
This is core to the approach of biodynamic body psychotherapy, restoring the unimpeded free flow of your life-force, allowing you to express more fully your unique self.
We will use a range of methods to explore your thoughts, feeling and emotions, including talking therapy, bodywork and tuning into body sensations.
Biodynamic Body Psychotherapy was developed by the Norweigen psychotherapist, Gerda Boyeson (1922-2005).
60 minute session costs £60
Psychotherapy offers you the chance to come into a deeper relationship with yourself. You will become aware of how certain life events have impacted you and how unconscious patterns may be influencing your life. Every life event takes place not only in our mind, but in our body. Our mental, emotional and physical experiences are interdependent. Biodynamic body psychotherapy includes both talking therapy and bodywork, acknowledging that we carry unexpressed feelings in the body. There may be painful feelings of anger, shame, fear and grief but also feelings of love, joy, pleasure and spontaneity. By burying all of this, we cut off our true ‘aliveness’. Through talking, tuning into body sensations, bodywork (biodynamic massage) and awareness of relational dynamics we are able to access what has been repressed and what wants to be expressed. My sessions offer an environment of acceptance and being truly listened to. In feeling fully accepted, we develop love and compassion for ourselves which allows us to express who we truly are. As this happens our body naturally becomes more responsive and alive. Biodynamic massage sessions are also available independently of psychotherapy, as a way to connect more deeply with your body.
