What is somatic psychotherapy?

Somatic Psychotherapists help people to deal with their concerns not only through talking but also by helping them to become deeply aware of their bodily sensations, movements, and behaviours. Through this awareness and deep connection with themselves, they are encouraged to make different choices that begin to create the change they seek in their wellbeing, their relationships and their mental states.
