Biodynamic Psychotherapy & Counselling

What Is Biodynamic Psychotherapy?: Biodynamic psychotherapy is a complementary, somatic form of therapy that works with both the body and the mind to achieve an overall state of wellness and wellbeing. Practitioners use a combination of talking therapy and bodywork (biodynamic body psychotherapy) to help you achieve a state of deep safety and relaxation.

A core aspect of biodynamic psychotherapy is the completion of emotional cycles, the purpose of which is to allow you to experience grounded and embodied positive emotions that you may not have been able to feel before if the cycle was interrupted at a crucial point.

What to expect from Biodynamic Psychotherapy?: You will usually be sitting or lying down for this type of therapy, and you and your therapist will work together to find the most appropriate position for you. Biodynamic psychotherapy takes some inspiration from the benefits of the psychoanalytic couch, which allows the body to relax and creates space for unconscious material to rise to the surface.

There are many aspects to biodynamic psychotherapy, and different combinations of techniques are beneficial for different issues. All, however, are geared towards bringing your mind and body into alignment and creating the right environment for the natural and spontaneous flow of life energy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Biodynamic Psychotherapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.
