What People Are Saying
Weaving Sensorimotor Psychotherapy theory and practice into psychodynamic or cognitive-behavioral models of therapy, including EMDR and exposure treatments, helps unify the body and mind in the treatment of trauma. Moreover, this work can be effectively used as an adjunct to already existing psychotherapeutic modalities.

Since re-living of trauma often occurs in the form of physical sensations…learning how to manage and uncouple physical sensations from trauma-based emotions has emerged as one of the essential aspects of the effective treatment of PTSD. Pat Ogden (originator of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy) is the undisputed master of teaching clinicians how to work with physical sensation to help people beyond their trauma. For me, her work has opened up a whole new dimension of effective therapy.
