Great to meet the Therapy Team today @discoverhannahs and give a presentation about Somatic Movement Therapy.
It was a lunchtime CPD session for the team. I was able to share the key elements of my approach – working through movement and touch; exploring emotions and images; building relationship through dialogue, both verbal and non-verbal. I gave an overview of some of the theoretical maps I use: Developmental Movement; balancing the Autonomic Nervous System; Infant Reflexes, and the integration of our senses. We had a chance to play a little too – moving to explore tuning in, non-verbal dialogue and relationship building.
Many thanks to the team, for their interest in my work and willingness to have a go so enthusiastically. Thanks also to Tamzin Gribble, Head of Therapy, for organising the event.
