Last month I was thrilled to see an article I wrote published in the BACP journal for Children, Young People and Families, a division journal of my professional organisation. Embodiment - the experience of being in, or connected to, our body - often comes into the work I do with clients whether that's talking therapy or yoga. For me it is a really central aspect of human experience and yet it isn't always used a such in the world of psychotherapy. If you are interested in how it might be used in talking therapy, you're more than welcome to take a look (PDF file below).
(The article addresses therapy with young people, but I think that most of the points are relevant to clients of all ages.)
This article first appeared in the June 2022 issue of BACP Children, Young People & Families, published by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.https://www.bacp.co.uk/bacp-journals/bacp-children-young-people-and-families-journal/ BACP 2022©
