Bio-Energetics aims to resolve emotional issues and helps clients to reach their potential and to enjoy a pleasure-filled life. A form of psychodynamic psychotherapy, bio-energetics focusses on the mind-body connection and therapists consider the client's structure, breathing and movement patterns in therapy.
Psychotherapists who practice bioenergetics are very aware of the psychological defences that also appear in the client's body. The body's unique structural patterns in which the muscles inhibit self-expression. Bioenergetics psychotherapists believe that each physical expression has meaning.
During a bio-energetics session, the psychotherapist will introduce the client to exercises and other physical expressions that can help the client explore the freedom of releasing those patterns and to recover some of the repressed feelings inside of them. The result is that the client will become more free and spontaneous and enjoy life feeling safer and healthier with a strong connection to his or her inner self.
