What services are provided at the Energetics Institute?
At the Energetics Institute, we offer a wholistic approach to clients where the focus is on the inter-relationship between mind, body and emotions. Our objective is to enable clients develop greater self awareness and strengthen their capacity to resolve emotional, personal and relationship issues.
The Energetics Institute uses techniques related to the science and principles of Integrative Body Mind Psychotherapy™ (IBMP), which is primarily based on the underlying principles of Core Energetics, Bioenergetics, Reichian therapy. We provide a comprehensive holistic approach to restore wellness and integration to the whole person on all interconnected levels - body mind, emotions and spirit. Integrative Body Mind Psychotherapy is an experiential and expressive Somatic (body-based) Psychotherapy which draws on the conventional wisdom of modern psychology and mind-body science.
One of the main premises of Integrative Body Mind Psychotherapy is that the body is the subconscious mind and much of the work addresses how beliefs, feelings and the inner life are sustained and reinforced in the body. In childhood, repeated patterns of feelings create specific patterns of muscular tension and weakness in the physical body which relate to trapped emotional memory. These habitual patterns become largely unconscious as we adopt them and then use them later in life to meet our needs. A large component of the therapy involves the safe unblocking and releasing of emotion from the body in order to self-heal both physical and emotional conditions.

What can be treated?
Richard and Helena Boyd help clients to understand the body and mind components and inter-relationship that is present in almost every issue that clients present in therapy. Their work includes but goes beyond effective counselling to healing the root causes of many emotional conditions and physical illnesses. The process powerfully transforms character weaknesses into high energy levels, creativity, happiness, success and pleasure. Deep and long standing positive change is the most remarkable benefit.
We have particular success in treating Depression and Anxiety, as a client who presents with these conditions generally has restriction in the breath and respiratory wave between the thoracic and abdominal cavities of the body. There also tends to be an over-distribution of energy in the head region contributing to worry and stress, and energy depletion or stagnation in the lower half of the body.
Our Body Oriented Psychotherapy techniques often work via the muscular system, which helps to generate vibration and sensation, which is then connected to the downward flow of energy through the body core, into the limbs, and particularly down the legs and feet. This provides the client with a sense of being more alive and energised, yet feeling peaceful and contained, thereby alleviating and healing Depression and Anxiety.
Some of the conditions that can be treated with Body Psychotherapy include:
