Dr. Amanda Williamson: 'The Centre for Embodiment & Somatic Movement Education & Therapy. www.movingsoma.co.uk Somatic Movement Therapy' Body-centred Expressive Therapy Deep relaxation & mindfulness Somatic Education Somatic Dance Therapy Somatic Movement Therapy & Education is ideal for people suffering from depression, addiction, anxiety, low self esteem and tension. The work combines science with art and movement therapy. This type of therapy is supportive of all people because it offers space and reflection on life-journey and how one is perceiving self in the world. ‘The purpose of Somatic Movement Education & Therapy is to enhance human function and body-mind integration through movement awareness. Professional practice combines experiential anatomy, sound, breath, touch and imagery to bring awareness to the self-regulatory intelligence of the body. Somatic movement practitioners work sensitively and gently with the human body, acknowledging that movement affects dimensions of psyche and spirit as well. As a result, practice facilitates improved vitality, creativity, easeful movement functioning, and a restful embodied experience. The profession, as represented by ‘International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA)’ helps students and clients in some way to: ​​​recognize habitual patterns of perceptual, postural and movement interaction with the environment improve movement coordination that supports structural, functional and expressive integration experience an embodied sense of vitality and create both meaning for and enjoyment of life focus on the body both as an objective physical process and as a subjective process of lived consciousness refine perceptual, kinesthetic, proprioceptive, and interoceptive sensitivity that supports homeostasis, co-regulation, and neuroplasticity ​ Dr. Amanda Williamson is pioneer in the field: please view the site for details.

What do you love most about your job?

Working in peaceful creative space; and extending this space to clients. Working in slow-time tempo; enabling clients to slow down, reflect and ease out tension; witnessing creative and perceptual change in others; supporting breath awareness and easeful being;
listening and compassion; being with others in a non-judgemental space; supporting growth and change; learning from my clients and exchanging knowledge about the human body in culture and society; supporting creativity and life-journey; and witnessing the resilience, strength and creativity of human beings.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I was inspired to open 'The Centre for Embodiment & Somatic Movement Education & Therapy' because people are under such pressure at home and at work. The centre provides a space of deep reflection, perceptual change and creative growth. The practice releases tension and stress, and provides people with time and space to self-regulate and heal.

Why should our clients choose you?

Somatic movement therapy and education is a unique approach to therapy where the sensory and expressive body is invited into the healing process. The work is slow-time and deeply reflective; it enhances life energy through focusing on breath and kinesthetic awareness. The work differs significantly from yoga because clients are not taught set exercises, but rather led through creative and reflective processes that provide freedom, ease and release in the body-mind. It is holistic practice that explores the sensory, emotional, creative, imaginative, anatomical and perceptual self. Clients report release from worry, new perceptions that enhance well-being at home and in work, and increased life-energy.
