Body-Oriented Psychotherapies Body Psychotherapy focuses on the body as a means to access thoughts, feelings, emotions, memories, trauma, spiritual connection, lower self and higher self in the process of unravelling the complex issues disturbing ones peace of mind and ability to let go and be free. Through body psychotherapy, we become aware of the subtle messages received by ourbody and the many postural overtones that affect our attitudes, emotional reactions and responses received from others. As we allow our bodies to let go of familiar and habitual tension patterns, we temporarily enter a state called "The Fertile Void" by Fritz Perls, creator of Gestalt Therapy. From this place of uncharted territory, unfamiliarity, confusion, not knowing, and even a sense of anxiety, we can allow new sensations, new thoughts, and a new overall perspective to offer us insight and a more proactive approach to handling situations, people and emotions in our life.
Energy Healing Energy circulates throughout the universe and within our own bodies. Whether we consciously feel it or not, we react physiologically and emotionally to the energy in the fields surrounding us. We respond to the energetic fields emanating from people in our environment. People also respond to the energy that we send forth. When we experience upsetting and confusing mental and emotional states, we emit energy that is not clear and direct. As we become conscious of our thoughts, sensations, emotions and reactions to others, our energetic fields actually change vibrational levels. The world seems to respond to us at the same vibrational level that we emit. Energy healing helps us to live at a higher, more clarified, level of energetic vibration.
Guided Imagery Through Guided Imagery, all things are possible. Our mind is free to imagine an ideal world, one in which we live and work and spend our leisure time in whatever type of environment pleases us most. We get to enjoy the attention and love of whoever meets our fancy. We become larger than life and fulfill every nuance of desire. And the amazing part of this is that, after awhile, the effects of our imaginary world begin to appear in our "real", everyday world as new people, opportunities and experiences. Anything and everything is possible when we allow our creative imagination to flow freely. Everything that has ever been created, including this very world, has begun as an idea, a thought, a vision, or a dream.
Psychotherapy Psychotherapy is a unique opportunity to share your self (your deepest concerns, your fears and insecurities, your expectations, disappointments and accomplishments) with a dedicated listener whose only concern is to help you understand yourself better and attain what you desire in your life.
Psychotherapy can take place in only a few sessions or you can choose to continue for months or even years, gradually sorting out and aligning the components and aspects of your world to help you attain peace of mind, a satisfying lifestyle, love, and contentment.
Somatic Experiencing Somatic Education brings awareness to our body and the continual flow of physiological, sensual and emotional responses. When we pay attention to the bodys sometimes very subtle responses to our life situations, we begin to recognize our true feelings, needs and desires - in the moment - when we are most likely to be able to do something about it. We begin to live life more authentically, maintaining a sense that our thoughts, emotions and actions are congruent. From this space of mind/body/spirit connection, creativity surges, love flows, and dreams often come to fruition as if by magic.
Myofascial Release Satisfying, close relationships help to extend our lives and bring us joy and happiness. However, relationships filled with hostile, demeaning, and disrespectful communication can have the opposite effect, causing a great deal of emotional and even physical pain.
The goal of marriage and family therapy is to transform such confusing, difficult and unhappy relationships into supportive, loving and understanding partnerships. As each person makes a slight shift in their perspective, attitude and behavior, huge changes occur in the way they feel about themselves and treat each other. The goal is to once again feel those beautiful loving feelings that brought you together and help you to share and fufill your dreams together.
