The Hallway offers a therapeutic space for expanding and deepening awareness.
With the support of a psychotherapist you may identify the source of:
issues related to eating
relational difficulties and many others
These can arise from adverse life experiences or trauma. It is by working at depth and carefully tracking what is going on in the body - along with the emerging emotions and thoughts - that we may address the 'stuckness' of their presence.
Dr Hannah Young
Research suggests that therapeutic outcomes are related to the quality of the client-therapist relationship. Central to the Person-centred approach is an emphasis on 'being' versus 'doing'; offering acceptance, empathy and genuineness.
Within client-centred therapy, an invitation from the therapist to focus and stay with body sensations can help to deepen the therapeutic work. Studies have demonstrated the benefit of such body-based approaches.
Deep Brain Reorienting
Turning towards traumatic memories can lead to a range of emotional responses. Before these responses emerge, there may be upper body tension, which can go unnoticed. Deep Brain Reorienting invites clients to closely track the activation of movement impulses, emotions and thoughts from this tension spot in order to avoid overwhelm and to facilitate processing. Steeped in a neuroscientific perspective, DBR neatly parallels what we understand about how trauma impacts on the brain.
Comprehensive Resource Model
Additional resourcing may be necessary for trauma treatment. In collaboration with clients,
The Comprehensive Resource Model establishes layers of internal resourcing through eye positioning, breath work, somatic awareness, connection with nature and more. With these resources in place, clients may be increasingly able to access and process the previously unbearable activation that can arise from trauma.
