I am a Certified Hakomi Therapist (C.H.T.) and am also familiar with a related approach called “The Recreation of the Self”. Additionally, I have also completed Level I of Pat Ogden’s Sensorimotor Psychotherapy training (2012).
Hakomi is a sophisticated method which allows us to study your ‘organization of experience’ as it shows up in the body. In doing so, the body and mind may be able to accept “missing experience” and become more adaptive in day to day life. This “brochure” describes how use of touch can broaden therapy’s effectiveness.
You are in charge of guiding me to guide you. We will discover how to name and move through areas where you have been stuck. This may be either due to developmental traumas (the ways that people can become stuck in various phases of their ‘growing up’ or development) or shock traumas (war, being robbed, raped, any forced loss of control). In these instances, there are areas where you have become frozen, or overly reactive. What comes up can be spoken of by you or kept private as we work together. At all times you are in control of what you choose to tell me, and when.
