About somatic-based therapy training courses for therapists
Somatic-based therapy is founded on the principle that the mind, body and emotions are intertwined, and that this should be reflected in mental health treatment.
While standard forms of therapy – such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) – are focused largely on the mind, somatic-based therapy embraces body-oriented modalities, such as breathwork, dance and meditation, to help clients heal.
Clients who seek out somatic-based therapy can therefore expect talk therapy to be combined with mind-body exercises and other physical techniques aimed at assisting them in releasing the tension that may be detrimentally impacting their physical and emotional wellbeing.
It is becoming increasingly common for mental health practitioners working across modalities to acknowledge the intricate connections between the mind, body and emotions. Clients who have experienced highly stressful and traumatic events, for instance, may sustain feelings of anger and frustration that are profoundly felt in the central nervous system and even their body language.
This mind-body link, in turn, is informing all manner of innovative approaches geared towards freeing clients from lingering stress and pain, so that they can once again lead the most rewarding and well-rounded lives.
