Sensorimotor Psychotherapy was developed by Pat Odgen and is a body-centred approach that focuses on the somatic symptoms of trauma. It holds that unresolved traumatic experiences end up trapped within the body. It is a combination of somatic therapies, attachment theory, neuroscience, cognitive techniques, and other techniques.
The focus of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is to use a person’s physical, mental, and emotional states to manage and relieve the physical sensation that are connected to the trauma. Moreover, the details of the trauma do not necessarily need to be recalled for the treatment to be effective.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy can be beneficial for:
- Substance dependency
- Relationship issues
- Development issues
- Issues with emotion regulation
- Chronic pain
