Somatic Movement Therapy is a way of working with children, young people and adults for their health, well-being and development.
It can be useful to those who have a range of physical and mental health difficulties, that include developmental delay, sensory integration and social, emotional and behavioural issues.
It draws on developmental, anatomical, physiological and psychological models. The process of therapy may explore developmentally significant movement material and sensory exploration.
Sessions work from how a person is, with the potential to address how their early life experience affects their current lives; to balance their sensory and emotional experience; and to enable them to develop resources they need for their life.
In working with children, sessions may use play, games, touch, artwork and props as appropriate. Further information can be found at: www.ismeta.org
