In our ever-moving society, it can be hard to slow down. Many people find that they struggle to sit with their own thoughts and experiences. These therapies can compliment the rest of their efforts in treatment as they learn to be actively aware of themselves and their experiences. Clients are taught to tolerate their experience and even see it as a partner in healing, instead of an enemy that drives them to distraction and maladaptive actions. Clients will gain knowledge and awareness of the effect on their bodies, using breath and movement to gain more control. Paired with Mindfulness, this is a powerful intervention and is offered to clients as they feel comfortable.
