A Body-Centered Approach to Freeing the Mind

The body is the key to doors to our inner selves that are inaccessible to the mind. Our bodies store our experiences and are directly connected to our unconscious self. There is wisdom there that we often lack when trying to solve problems with our analytical mind alone. Thoughts can be deceiving, making us believe we know the truth when we are only reproducing what we were once told. Whenever emotions are involved, rational problem solving strategies fall short of finding satisfactory and healthy answers. This is why asking the body often brings us much further than dwelling on endless chains of thought. In the meantime, the mind is free to attend to what it is best at.

A Mindful Approach to Becoming Alive in the Body

Mindfulness and the awareness of our thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations allow us to stop being run by the past. This gives us freedom of choice and self-empowerment because we can react to the present moment, instead of to something that happened to us in the past. True aliveness is based on spontaneity and flexibility to act according to our true inner needs and feelings and to express ourselves through the body. We need mindfulness to perceive what our bodies communicate to us and to give us the necessary detachment from immediate physical reactions and conditioned responses. Only when mindful, can we dare to fully feel and sense the emotions accompanying our experiences within the body.


Physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual well-being are interconnected. We therefore integrate working directly on and with the body, exploring thoughts and emotions, as well as systemic aspects, into a holistic approach.


The body is a resource to better sense, understand and regulate oneself, one's needs and one's emotions. It is the key to those aspects of the self that are verbally inaccessible.

Emotionally Regulating

Emotions are what moves us and our lives. By sensing and experiencing them more consciously in the body, we can often arrive at a better understanding and a more differentiated expression of them. This process facilitates dealing with difficult emotions.


By means of establishing a trustworthy relationship and employing directed touch and somatic exercises, we influence the autonomic nervous system and create a sense of safety in the body. The possible consequences of traumatic events are identified and considered in the process.


The principle of neuroplasticity indicates that it is possible to rewire the neurons in our brain by means of processing new experiences and sensations, as well as new chains of thought. This occurs whenever we feel safe and connected, and when both the body and the mind participate through various sensory channels.
