About Hakomi – Somatic Psychotherapy

Hakomi is a body-centered psychotherapy which supports self-discovery. Using the principles of mindfulness within an atmosphere of safety, the method enables increased self-awareness, a sense of personal empowerment and a richer appreciation for life. The therapist works slowly and gently. Clients can progress at their own pace and feel safe to examine long-held defences. Hakomi Therapy Sherry Charlton McDowell

Nuances of body language are tracked by the therapist and the client is taught to use mindfulness to access present experience. Together, client and therapist can gain a depth of experience not reached through most “talking” therapies. The hidden beliefs that shape our lives and relationships can emerge into consciousness to be re-evaluated.

How I use Hakomi in my Craniosacral Therapy practice

I employ the Hakomi principles with my clients; open listening, kind acceptance, non-jugement and simple truthfulness. This helps to build trust and enhances the therapeutic relationship. I may use mindfulness techniques, to help clients to gain a clearer sense of their own bodies, sensations and feelings.  My priority is to ensure that clients are entering a safe space, to share relevant information, and increase the healing potential of the session.
