Psychology is Movement

The premise of Therapy in Motion is that the body, mind and emotions are inter-connected, and therefore the whole person must be held in the therapeutic encounter.

Every aspect of our psychology—emotional, social, relational—is experienced through our bodies. Emotions, imagination, and intentions make themselves known to us and others by way of an intricately sensitive and finely tuned web of sensate experiences, biochemical exchanges, and neurological pathways in the brain.

When we are frozen, overwhelmed, or dysregulated emotionally, we are likely to feel ungrounded, off-centre or out of touch with our physical presence inside our body, resulting in stuck emotional states and repetitive patterns of behaviour.

When therapists integrate intellectual, emotional and physical approaches, client issues can be translated into movement. By including body sensations and movement into already existing psychotherapeutic approaches, a therapist can increase the depth and efficacy of their work.
