Understanding Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a body-centered approach that respects the body's wisdom and integrates sensorimotor processing with cognitive and emotional processing in the treatment of trauma. This method is grounded in the understanding that the body often holds onto past traumas and holds incomplete actions, which are not always accessible through traditional talk therapy. By incorporating the body into therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy offers a holistic path to healing that encompasses the mind, body, and spirit.

How Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Helps

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is particularly effective in treating the somatic symptoms of trauma, such as chronic tension, anxiety, and the instinctual "fight, flight, freeze" responses. Agnes Wohl facilitates a deep and lasting healing process by helping clients become aware of their bodily sensations and learning to release trapped energy and tension. This approach is about remembering past events vis a vis the body and allowing the body to move past them. Sometimes it is easier to metabolize the body's response than bring up "the story." The emphasis is on the story teller, not the story.

Key Components of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Include:

  • Somatic Awareness: Focusing on bodily sensations and learning to interpret them as valuable information.

  • Mindful Movement: Using simple physical movements to release stress and trauma stored in the body.

  • Cognitive and Emotional Processing: Integrating physical experiences with cognitive insights and emotional understanding five sense perception and imagery to promote healing.
