Sensorimotor Psychotherapy

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy


Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) is a method that draws upon the natural wisdom of the body (posture, movement, and the nervous system) to tap into the innate drive in all of us to heal, adapt, and develop new capacities.

SP is for adults, children, and adolescents who suffer from unresolved trauma, relationship problems, or who want to reduce stress and improve their quality of life.


SP can bridge the gap when traditional “talk” therapy has not helped. SP can help with trauma and attachment related issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Having difficulty concentrating due to fear, upsetting thoughts, or unwelcomed physical (body) sensations
  • Intense and disturbing emotional reactions that seem out of place with the present situation
  • Post-traumatic stress: abuse, attack, accidents, flashbacks, nightmares. Feeling frozen or stuck in familiar circumstances without understanding why
  • Difficulty enjoying life, feeling hopeful, and experiencing pleasure
  • Relationship related wounds: neglect, harsh parenting during childhood, divorce, child-parent separations
  • Persistent and regular negative thoughts about one’s ability to achieve, be successful and deserving
  • Difficulty maintaining a job, a family, friendships and other relationships
  • Feeling detached from one’s self and the world
