Somatic psychotherapy is based on the understanding that your mental, emotional and physical states are interconnected, and that emotional and mental changes affect your body, and vice-versa.
Issues that may lead you to seek the help of a psychotherapist include
- stress, anxiety and depression
- challenges at work or in relationships
- loss and grief
- separation and divorce
- low energy
- lack of enthusiasm
- recurring physical problems such as back pain and digestive difficulties, especially when these do not appear to have a physical cause
- a general feeling of dissatisfaction with one’s life.
Whilst somatic psychotherapy can be of great help with all the above difficulties, you do not have to have a problem to benefit from this approach. You can also benefit if you wish to have a more fulfilling and meaningful life, and a better relationship with yourself and others.
Donald Marmara created Core Development – a process of change and personal growth developed from his professional training and 35 years’ experience in somatic (body) psychotherapy, counselling and structural dynamics.
Core development adopts a flexible approach, recognising that what works for one person may not work for another.
