Frequently Asked Questions
What can Sensorimotor Psychotherapy help with?
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
