Why Sensorimotor Psychotherapy?   
Trauma first and foremost leaves its imprint on the body, yet, for many reasons, the body has historically been omitted from therapeutic inquiry. SP can help clients release the hold and effects of traumatic experiences, and draw upon the wisdom of their bodies in ways that enrich their lives.  
 Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) actively incorporates awareness of the body into clinical practice, targeting the habits of physical action, autonomic dysregulation, and posture. By addressing the physical, as well as the psychological effects of adverse experience on mind and body, SP supports a deep and unified approach to healing. Go beyond theories and gain practical ways to open a new dimension for effective person or online!
