Body psychotherapy

Core Energetics

Exploring your authentic self and becoming who you truly are

For us, this is the essence of life and the core of our work.
Core Energetics, a form of body psychotherapy, is a deep and life-enhancing process that brings you closer to your core and to your true self. Feeling, moving, and breathing – getting in contact with yourself and your body. You come closer to your core where your life energy, love, joy and pleasure can flow freely.

Core Energetics

Body psychotherapy

Body psychotherapy is an invitation to feel deeper and to connect with your true self and with your body. This process is about you. It is a transformational process wherein we dive deeper and explore what is blocking you from living your full potential.

In the sessions we work with the body, movement, breathing, feeling and personal interaction. In the therapeutic process blockages and contracted feelings in yourself and in your relationships become visible. You will gain deeper awareness and learn to explore and express your feelings so that your life energy can flow freely. It is a process that supports you to be able to enjoy life to the fullest.
