Somatic psychology is a subfield of psychology that focuses on the embodied experience of the individual, recognizing the intricate interrelationship between mind and body. Somatic therapy uses a range of techniques that facilitate the recognition, expression, and regulation of emotions and physical sensations to enhance physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.

Somatic psychology views the body as an essential component of mental health and well-being. The goal of somatic therapy is to help clients increase their awareness of the physical sensations and emotions they experience, to access and release emotions that have been held in the body, and to develop greater body awareness and self-regulation skills. Somatic therapy can be beneficial for people who have experienced trauma or who struggle with stress, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and other issues.

There are various somatic therapy approaches, including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Bioenergetics, Hakomi, and Body-Mind Centering. These approaches use a variety of methods, such as breathwork, mindfulness, movement, touch, and body awareness exercises, to help clients access and release emotions and to build greater self-awareness and self-regulation skills.

In somatic therapy, the therapist works with the client to identify physical sensations and emotions, help the client regulate their nervous system, and integrate their experiences. By working on the physical level, somatic therapy helps clients address issues that may be difficult to access through traditional talk therapy approaches. This approach allows clients to develop a deeper sense of self-awareness, emotional resilience, and empowerment.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
