Developed by Pat Ogden, sensorimotor psychotherapy is a body-centered therapeutic approach to treating the somatic (or physical) symptoms of trauma. In combination with techniques from cognitive, affective and psychodynamic treatment theories, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy focuses on the client’s bodily experiences as a way to achieve increased awareness and well-being. Therapists practicing Sensorimotor Psychotherapy will help clients to become aware of their bodies and track their bodily sensations. They will teach clients how to implement physical actions that promote empowerment and competency. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy may be particularly helpful for clients are working through trauma as well as those with anxiety, depression, anger management issues, and addictions.
