Body Psychotherapy

Body awareness techniques
These link the talking and thinking to what is being experienced emotionally and/or physically. This usually involves the breath and some body techniques that help the persons connect to what is happening besides the thinking and talking. For example after a full discussion of a relationship issue.. I might say “try closing your eyes and become aware of your breathing and being with what is happening in your body right now”. I might summarise what we have talked about in session and encourage a connection with feelings or body sensations. This may lead to other awareness techniques or some bodywork or may simply bring the talking and sharing that has been done to a more integrated level.

 

Radix® bodywork
Radix body centred Psychotherapy is designed to help a person connect more deeply to their energy and life force and release blocks in the emotions and body. This can take place sitting in the chair standing or if desired on a mattress (‘the mat”)
A full session often starts with a warm up and then some breathing and centring exercises. The breath can reveal much about where we block and hold energy. In Radix work we are endeavouring to release the blocks to enable the energy or life force to flow more easily through the body. Radix work can be gentle and centring. It can also be expressive. Sometimes people contact anger fear and pain and the body wants to express and release all these so it can realign and be more whole. This may involve (for example) kicking, yelling and screaming or deep sobbing and crying. A radix therapist is trained to work with these very strong releases and sees them in a very positive way. Bodywork often is able to release deeply imbedded emotions energies and feelings unable to be expressed by the mind. Sometimes an individual session can be a mixture e.g. some talking some relaxation and/or some body work.
