What is Hakomi?
Hakomi is a mindfulness-based, body-centred method of psychotherapy.
In Hakomi we create a safe, compassionate space where you can feel accepted and welcomed.
A Hakomi practitioner pays close attention to your physicality - your non-verbal communication - as well as what you are saying and feeling. You will be guided to use gentle curiousity and mindfulness to help you develop self awareness. To notice what is happening, moment by moment, physically, emotionally and mentally.
Hakomi is interested in finding out about beliefs and adaptations, often formed in early life, which unconsciously shape how you relate to others and how you see the world. These core beliefs are often expressed in non-verbal ways through your movement and posture.
Hakomi can also be thought of as a method of 'assisted self-study'. It can help you understand yourself better and explore how you can experience situations with fresh perspectives.
How can Hakomi help me?
It can help you tap into your strengths and resources. Some of which you might not even be aware of.
It can help you respond to challenges and difficult situations with more options.
It can help soften painful memories and experiences and support you to feel more positively connected to life and other people.
