Have you been in therapy and didn't think it was deep enough? Yes, me too. As I was doing therapy, I always thought "there's something deeper here." My clients and I would talk about certain issues but then not be able to go deeper. I believe there hasn't been a lot of focus on how to truly heal from wounds we all have. I found that using our mind, like in cognitive behavioral therapy, is helpful but not enough.
Body-centered work goes deeper and gets better results.
What exactly is body centered? As I work with a client, I listen to what they are saying but I am also in tune with the body, mine and theirs. In body centered work, the focus is not only on our thoughts and feelings but also on what's happening in our body. So I will check with each client as we work together asking "Where you do you feel that in your body?" "What's happening in your body right now?" "Do you feel grounded in your body?" (don't worry if you don't know what this means, I can teach you.)
By allowing ourselves to re-connect to our body, we can heal our wounds. Is there science behind this? Yes! Here are a few books to check out: Bessel van der Kolk's book The Body Keeps the Score Dr. Gabor Mate's book When The Body Says NO
