How Hakomi Works
Hakomi psychotherapy uses first-hand, felt experience to enable the process of self-discovery and change. Because it deals with more than thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, somatic therapy may open you up to information that can be overlooked in more traditional analytic psychotherapy.
In Hakomi, the added awareness of sensations and felt experiences within the body are used to deepen the work. This can provide a channel of cooperation between the unconscious and conscious, and help facilitate communication among parts of yourself that may be lost, hidden, or isolated.
