The focus on the body and the use of touch
During our work together your physical experience – sensations, tensions, impulses to movement, gestures – will be one of our main places of exploration and intervention, beside what you already know, believe, and remember about yourself.
Short experiences of physical contact between the counselor and the client may represent a very rich source of information and a great resource under certain circumstances. It must be said that the use of touch, although useful, is optional and largely depends on how at ease you feel about it. In fact, the focus on the body is always possible without necessarily recurring to touch.
Touch may be used only when:
- you are interested and curious
- you gave your consent
- you were previously informed about the way it would happen and its purposes
