Psychotherapy & the Alexander Technique
A Holistic Approach to Psychological Issues
The connection between mind and body is increasingly recognised nowadays. F M Alexander -
The psychological benefits of the Alexander Technique lead many people to continue taking lessons long after their physical ailments have recovered. Many individuals report more balanced moods, an ability to change unwanted behaviour patterns, and an increased capacity to cope with life's challenges.
How can stopping unwanted muscular tension heal emotional wounds?
Unconscious experiences, such as unhealed traumas, unexpressed feelings and painful memories can be pushed into the body where they are not free to be dealt with by the mind. Such tensions in the body can produce psychological symptoms, such as depression or anxiety. In such circumstances people may also experience being out of touch with their feelings, having poor impulse control, or not being able to manage stress.
As the body becomes more balanced with the Alexander Technique, thoughts and feelings can more easily be dealt with in therapy. Previous life traumas and difficult emotions can then be worked through consciously with less fear. Lessons in the Alexander Technique alongside psychotherapy also help people to stop unwanted behaviour at both a psychological as well as a neurological level.
