WHAT IS SOMATICS?

‘Soma’ comes from the Greek word referring to the living body in its wholeness – beyond intellect and knowledge to include sensation, temperature, movement, pulsation ‘as well as our images, thoughts, attitudes, yearnings, dreams and language.’ [Richard Strozzi-Heckler, Ph.D.]

‘Somatic Coaching …. treat[s] the body as a fundamental place of change, learning, and transformation. We hold that the self and the body are indistinguishable and by working through the body we can directly work with the self.’ [Richard Strozzi-Heckler, Ph.D.]

Developing somatic awareness deepens the work practitioners can do with their clients. With improved self-attunement to their stress response, practitioners can monitor themselves and their clients in a moment to moment way. This enhances the relationship in the room and provides in vivo growthful opportunities for the client to practice new ways of being (something which goes beyond new behaviours).

“For the things we have to learn, before we can do them, we learn by doing them.”
