Discover Your Liberated Self


Trauma and disturbing events, as well as phobias, can diminish the quality of our daily lives without us even being aware of it. In the somatic therapy process, we work on unraveling these phobias, traumas, or disturbing events in a way that they can no longer affect you in your current life. This work is incredibly liberating and releases a lot of tension in body and mind. 


We will use techniques like EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and inner parts work. Well-known and effective for the treatment of (complex) Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), panic attacks, eating disorders, addictions, and anxiety by dissolving the power of emotionally charged memories of past events.


The discharge of long-held emotions and trauma patterns is an intense process and requires proper preparation and integration. Depending on your background, your (mental) health, and your life challenges, we will customize the process for you.



Q&A Somatic Therapy Process

Your Past Does Not Define Your Future

How does somatic therapy work? Somatic therapy increases awareness of the physical sensations and bodily responses associated with emotions and experiences. The goal is to release physical tension, process and integrate traumatic experiences, and develop a better understanding of their emotional and psychological states.

Can somatic therapy help with stress and anxiety? Yes, somatic therapy can effectively assist individuals in managing stress and anxiety. Clients can regulate their emotional responses and reduce the impact of stress and anxiety by learning to tune into bodily sensations and reduce physical tension.

What is the difference between somatic therapy and traditional talk therapy? The primary distinction is that somatic therapy incorporates the body’s physical sensations and responses as a central part of the therapeutic process. Traditional talk therapy primarily relies on the mental process. Somatic therapy considers the body and mind as an integrated whole.

How does somatic therapy address physical and emotional trauma? Somatic therapy addresses trauma by gently and gradually processing and releasing the stored trauma and tension associated with traumatic memories.

What techniques are used in somatic therapy sessions? Somatic therapy involves a range of techniques, such as mindfulness, body awareness, breathwork, nervous system recalibration, EMDR, and inner parts work.

Can somatic therapy be effective for chronic pain and body-related issues? Somatic therapy can effectively address chronic pain and body-related issues by helping you to become more attuned to your body, reduce muscular tension, and address the emotional aspects of physical discomfort.

What are the benefits of somatic therapy for emotional healing and regulation? Somatic therapy aids in processing and healing from emotional wounds, enhancing emotional regulation, and improving self-awareness.

How can somatic therapy improve self-awareness and self-acceptance? Somatic therapy fosters self-awareness by helping you become more in touch with the sensations in your body and your emotions, leading to greater self-acceptance and choice.

Can somatic therapy be integrated with other therapeutic approaches? Ideally, somatic therapy integrates with other therapeutic approaches, like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), coaching, and mindfulness-based therapies, to offer a more comprehensive treatment. Bottom-up and top-down.

How long do somatic therapy sessions typically last, and what can I expect in a session? Somatic therapy sessions typically last around an hour. The number of sessions required depends on your goals and needs, the minimum time for the total process is 3 months, but for those with accumulated trauma, it can be much longer than that. 

What are some self-help exercises and practices related to somatic therapy? Somatic therapy includes self-help exercises like mindfulness, journalling, and nervous system regulation, which can be integrated into daily life to enhance self-awareness and regulation.

Can somatic therapy be taken online? Somatic therapy can be conducted both online and in person, they are equally effective.

Are there any books or resources that provide further information on somatic therapy? Books such as “The Body Keeps the Score” by Bessel van der Kolk and “In an Unspoken Voice” by Peter A. Levine offer in-depth information on somatic therapy and its applications. For parts work, I recommend the books No Bad Parts and “You Are the One You’ve Been Waiting for” by Richard Schwartz.
