Psychology is movement
Therapy in Motion is a dynamic methodology that integrates leading psychological concepts into an embodied movement vocabulary.
In Therapy in Motion, we bring Open Floor movement practice to already existing psychotherapeutic approaches for 1:1 or small group work.
We integrate relational approaches, attachment theory and practice, trauma work, emotions and cognition into an embodied movement exploration for richer therapeutic outcomes.
Working with body sensations and movement, therapists increase the depth and efficacy of their work.
Therapy in Motion is a dynamic methodology that integrates leading psychological concepts into an embodied movement vocabulary. The theoretical grounding of Therapy in Motion training includes attachment theory, relational psychoanalysis, trauma studies, theories of sexuality, gestalt awareness practice, the understanding of multiple self‐states,and transpersonal approaches.
The premise of Therapy in Motion is that the body, mind and emotions are inter-connected.
All aspects of our psychology – emotional, social and relational are experienced through our bodies.
- Clients access core resources to make desired changes in their lives.
- In our work together, we focus on:
- Developing (and deepening) embodied presence
- Using Core Movement Resources as interventions and support
- Expanding capacity across channels of perception: sensory, emotional, cognitive, spatial, relational, etc.
- Growing skills for embodied attunement and co-regulation in the therapeutic relationship
Therapy in Motion is a healing modality, excellent for beginning as well as dedicated movers seeking an embodied, integrated therapeutic approach.
