As a Body Psychotherapist, I've had many clients who struggle with depression, a mental health condition that can cause persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest. Some of the physical symptoms that accompany depression include low energy, difficulty sleeping or oversleeping, and changes in appetite.

Body Psychotherapy can be a helpful tool in addressing the symptoms of depression. Through a combination of talk therapy, bodywork, and movement, we can work together to explore the underlying causes of your depression and develop strategies to cope with it.

One of the key components of Body Psychotherapy is the emphasis on somatic awareness. This means that we pay attention to the physical sensations and movements in your body, and explore how they relate to your emotional state. By becoming more attuned to your body, you can better understand the ways in which your thoughts and feelings impact your physical experience.

Through gentle touch, I can help you become more aware of the patterns of tension and relaxation in your body, and guide you in exploring the meaning behind them. I may also work with movement and breathing exercises to help you develop greater self-awareness and regulation.

Body Psychotherapy is a holistic approach that recognises the interconnection of mind and body. By working with the you, we can develop a deeper understanding of the root causes of depression and cultivate tools to help manage symptoms. If you're struggling with depression, you don't have to face it alone.
