“In a way, my body is like the body of the earth, which with its mountains, valleys, river beds, and uneven topography tells the story of its history and creation as surely as my body expresses the trials and creative changes that I have experienced throughout my lifetime.’’

Ken Dychtwald (1977, p.19)

Dance Movement Therapy

Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) also known as Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) bases itself on the principle that the body and mind are connected and uses body movements to bring emotional, physical, and social harmony.

Dance Movement Therapy is the psychotherapeutic use of movement that allows the client and counsellor to interact, learn, heal, and process, etc. without relying solely on words. It works by using elements of breath, movement, posture, personal movement style, non-verbal body expressions, and muscle tension to cope with stress and other disorders.

NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming)

NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming is an approach to communications and psychotherapy. Scientific study says that 93 % of our communication is non-verbal and 7% is verbal. The complex interplay between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) affects our body and behaviour (programming) in more ways than one. We unconsciously develop certain psychological patterns that tend to limit our actions. NLP helps in identifying and analyzing the core issue that a person has or is going through.

Art Therapy

“One of the best ways to engage the creative process, the unconscious, and the imagination is through art-making. The process of making art and the artifact itself are both the means and the messages through which we encounter ourselves.”

The Expressive Body in Life, Art and Therapy: Working With Movement,Metaphor, and Meaning– Daria Halprin

Art has been used as a means of communication, self-expression, group interaction, diagnosis, and conflict resolution throughout history. For thousands of years, cultures and religions around the world have incorporated the use of carved idols and charms, as well as sacred paintings and symbols, in the healing process. Art therapy is a hybrid field largely created in therapy in treatment to develop self-awareness, explore emotions, address unresolved emotional conflicts, improve social skills, and raise self-esteem.

Sound Therapy

Sound frequencies impact how we feel. Everything has a vibrational frequency, including ourselves. Hence, particular songs and types of music often bring about specific types of emotions from us. Sound Healing is the therapeutic use of sounds

  • to heal on the physical level
  • to overcome a blockage on the emotional level
  • to raise the energy levels of the body
  • to change the thought pattern or belief

Metaphor Therapy

The subconscious mind stores and presents information in the form of visuals and that we all talk about our deeper experiences through the use of descriptive visuals. These are known as Metaphors. In an alternative approach to traditional psychotherapy, metaphor therapy is a tool that allows the therapist/counselor to dive into the client’s mind through a very cognitive yet subtle process and create deeper insights. Metaphor therapy is a conversational tool to bring the client’s issues at a more cognitive level without disturbing the emotional equilibrium. It is a pattern of communication and drawing interpretation that opens doors to a more productive counseling session.

Emotional Freedom Technique

The emotional freedom technique or EFT is also known as the tapping technique is a kind of psychological acupressure. It involves repeated tapping on specific points of the body such as points on the head and face, in a particular sequence. EFT tapping is known to be an alternative therapeutic approach to overcome anxiety, post-traumatic disorder (PTSD), and related conditions. EFT is evidence-based self-help manualized and body-centric therapeutic method proven to stimulate the central nervous system which helps the body to release helpful chemicals.
