Somatic Self-Study for Therapists


“To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.”

~ Mary Oliver

Somatic Self-Study for Therapists 

Our bodies provide a rich source of information, access to different parts of our brain as well as contact with our various levels of experience and knowing. Mindful attention to this internal territory offers opportunity to unearth aspects of self that we otherwise would not generally access.

As therapists, we are familiar with the inevitable ‘snags’ or impasses within our work with clients. Somatic Self-Study for Therapists is an experiential exploration that provides therapists with a valuable resource for tapping into their body wisdom, and studying their inner experience as it relates to work with clients.

Through this non-judgmental process we can discover beliefs, experiences, and feelings that influence our work. We can also gain a living understanding of their impact within it.

As we deepen our self-understanding through this somatic way of knowing, we cultivate a unique capacity for both deepening and enriching our therapeutic relationships. We also develop new pathways to meet and navigate barriers to therapeutic progress.


Somatic Self-Study for Therapists

is a Hakomi-based avenue in which to explore the ways in which our internal experiences are organized, and how these arise and unfold in our daily living and encounters with others.

In this context, we seek to gain insight into those internal dynamics, and create new pathways toward more satisfying outcomes.

Offered to therapists of any therapeutic approach, 

Somatic Self-Study for Therapists

is a unique tool for personal and professional development that is profoundly transformational.



I can trust my experience... I have learned that my total organismic sensing of a situation is more trustworthy than my intellect… Experience is, for me the highest authority...The touchstone of validity... No other person’s ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience. It is to experience that I must return again and again, to discover a closer approximation to truth as it is in the process of becoming in me.” 

~ Carl Rogers
