Somatic Therapy: The Psychology of Symptoms© is a psycho-spiritual process that explores how our thoughts, feelings and belief systems influence our lives. The Psychology of Symptoms is an innovative drug free adjunct to western medical treatment. Thru this process you will experientially learn how your "life story” and the survival strategies you developed to cope with it create imbalances in your physiology and manifest as your symptoms.
The Psychology of Symptoms process will not only afford you the opportunity to be free of chronic and acute symptoms, it will ultimately allow you to embody those aspects of yourself that were judged, dismissed or disowned in order to cope with your childhood. You will have the opportunity to return to your original innocence and creativity. Many people experience this process as a coming home to their” authentic self”, a recapturing of their full vitality, and an opportunity to move forward in life with creative passion and purpose.
The Psychology of Symptoms is rooted in the science of the mind-body connection that is becoming more readily available to mainstream medicine and spirituality. This process masterfully blends Voice Dialogue, Journey Work, energy healing, and truly illuminates how our biography can become our biology.
