About Somatic Psychotherapy at Northside Gestalt Therapy

Somatic psychotherapy is a type of therapy that links the mind and body to address emotional issues. It explores how physical sensations and movements can help understand and heal psychological challenges. Practitioners focus on the body’s responses to promote awareness and holistic healing, helping individuals overcome mental health issues by addressing both the mind and body.

For a balanced life

Somatic psychotherapy aims to connect the mind and body for better mental well-being. It helps reduce stress, build emotional resilience, and improve coping skills. By addressing stored trauma, it enhances emotional regulation, fostering self-awareness and better relationships. Overall, somatic psychotherapy empowers individuals for a more balanced and integrated state of emotional and physical health.

Your mental health journey

Our therapy outcomes prioritise long-term solutions. We recommend attending at least six sessions to really create lasting change. At our clinic, we believe in meaningful transformation, not quick fixes. If you’re seeking authentic self-improvement, you’ve found your partner in this journey with us.

“Sherridan, thank you for providing a warm and safe space for me to explore and challenge my fears and doubts. You were always interested and fully present as you met me on the intellectual plane, where I was most comfortable and from there, you gently encouraged and supported me to explore emotions that I had kept hidden for more than six decades. You helped my shed my fears of emotional experience and intimacy. My personal life, and my work with my own clients are much richer and deeper for our time together.”
