Body Centred Psychotherapy (or Somatic Psychotherapy) is a holistic psychotherapy model that incorporates the body into the psychotherapeutic process. It can help you with emotional and physical issues including anxiety, depression and physical pain. It assists you in developing an awareness and deeper understanding of your emotional and physical experience, so that you can be present and in tune with your emotional and physical responses and regain inner strength, clarity and balance in your life.

By utilizing a Somatic Psychotherapy and Counselling skill set, the therapist assists you to access stored memories and unconscious feelings, which influences and transforms your overall perception. This process raises your awareness, connects you to who you truly are, and develops loving acceptance towards yourself. By discovering and dealing with the underlying root issue, it is possible to let go of long-held physical and mental patterns that hinder you from fulfilling your potential and live your life in joy and harmony.

Sandra is particularly trained in multicultural issues and offers a culturally sensitive approach to healing.

Sandra offers adolescent counselling, anxiety counselling, grief counselling, relationship counselling, (spiritual) crisis counselling, trauma (PTSD) counselling, as well as anger management and chronic pain management counselling.

To assess suitability  and benefits that you can gain through a counselling or psychotherapy session, please book a free 20 minutes phone consultation with Sandra to discuss any questions you may have.
