Welcome to Elixir & Life Brisbane. Your first step to vitality and optimal health for a lifetime.
A simple explanation of Body Psychotherapy is that it is a more holistic form of counselling and yet when you look beneath the ice berg it is so much more than this.
Body Psychotherapy has been around since the early 1900. The principles are based on a wholistic approach that encompasses the mind, body, emotion.
The goal is to support the person in accessing a deeper awareness of their emotions, feeling and behaviours. Body Psychotherapy aims to shift deep seated unconscious sabotage. Body Psychotherapy creates long lasting positive change, which allows for a greater capacity to live life in a happier more satisfying way, with an ability to have more functional relationships and life experiences.
A practical example might be that the therapist encourages the person to be allowed to fully express how they feel about something as oppose to how they think they should feel about it. By fully being able to express and be received and acknowledge with the response that is needed healing can occur.
“It also guides people into a deeper awareness of their emotional and behavioural states while at the same time encouraging them to tune in to the body’s physical responses. This form of therapy is helpful for the treatment of many emotional and physical health issues.
“Body psychotherapy recognizes that the whole person is a result of equal contributions and facilities provided by the mind and the body as interactive and interrelated aspects of the person as a whole.”
Body Psychotherapy aims to help people work through area’s of there life where they are struggling or experiencing difficulties. These area’s are more likely hindering you in some way, possible more than what you realise.
Body Psychotherapy focuses on creating a long lasting shift and healing around certain issues in your life, rather than just understanding it intellectually or learning a behaviour to help combat it. Which means there are permanent positive change, and life become easier, happier and more satisfying.
