Body Awareness

Often the body holds traumas and unresolved issues and can be a great source of information, insight and wisdom into the issues being brought to the therapy session. Ashley may encourage you to stay with emotions and sessions arising in the body and while being supported, you may be asked to access places residing in the body that may initially feel uncomfortable and foreign. Often it may be suggested that clients include a physical practice like walking, yoga, or hiking to facilitate the body awareness aspect of the healing process. The use of body awareness exercises and techniques may not necessarily be part of the therapeutic process and is always determined between Ashley and the client during the sessions.
