Feeling Stuck?

Learn to Listen to the wisdom of your body

 

 

Therapy – it’s not what you think (psst – it’s what you feel)

A session with Ronnie Adamowicz is an opportunity to slip gently from your everyday and listen more intently to the messages and the wisdom coming from within.

Ronnie’s approach guides you towards a more intimate look at your inner emotional world, and lets you reacquaint with the parts of yourself that can get drowned out by too much noise, and too much to do.

Often, it’s these parts that most need your non-judgemental attention.

When it comes to navigating difficult terrain, enlisting the help of a skilled and trusted guide such as Ronnie can make all the difference.

How Somatic Therapy Can Help

The fight-flight-freeze response is so pervasive, that even when the event is gone, a residue in the body’s  nervous system remains, creating discord resulting in stress, fear, anxiety, and stress. 

Our life can feel unbalanced when there is a disconnect between the body and mind. While we can often  “think” our way through challenges and obstacles, the imprint left on the body’s nervous system can often create discord, resulting in feeling stuck.

Through a mechanism known as interoception and proprioception, an awareness of the inner landscape of emtotions allows for a fundamental shift in how the nervous system processes information. This allows one to not just reprogram neurological reactions,  but fundamentally alters the nervous systems response to the how relate to the world, and ourselves.

The combination of focusing-oriented somatic psychotherapy with talk therapy,  our work together helps integrate the emotional landscape, as well as the body’s neurological nervous system. 

This integration allows for a shift in unhealthy habits, limiting patterns, and unhealthy boundaries,  allowing the body’s nervous system to resolve itself back to its natural home – your authentic self

1. Learning to listen to the wisdom of your body

The body has its own internal wisdom. We are so accustomed to using our mind to navigate the word, that when guided correctly, we discover a whole world beneath the surface that is so often ignored.

Using somatic based focusing psychotherapy  we can tune in and truly listen, perhaps for the first time. This can create something truly profound.

2. .Renegotiate and heal the body

There’s a sense of coming back home using somatic based psychotherapy. Focusing offers a new way to relate to yourself that can truly heal.

3. Bring it back home

Somatic psychotherapy allows via a bodily “felt sense,” from the highly aroused survival energy within the nervous system to be safely experienced and gradually deactivated.

This is truly profound work, which needs to be shared to everyone

4. Traditional therapy meets somatic therapy

While I’m trained and employ traditional therapies such as existential, psychodynamic, and CBT, it’s somatic experiential psychotherapy known as FOT – focusing oriented psychotherapy is front and centre of my work. This allows for an integrated form of therapy. 

5. Create lasting changes

Creating change from all angles – reframing, cognitive errors, meaning making, as well somatically embodied changes. This integration allows for deep changes.

Hi, I'm Ronnie

I’ve always loved helping people understand themselves. Something which  fascinated me even as a kid.

Helping empowering others to a more fulfilling sense of self, and restoring peace in their lives is something which gives me the utmost fulfilment in life.

I employ several therapeutic modalities seated within a humanistic framework, using somatic experiential focusing modalties, as well as more traditional therapies such as existential, psychodynamic, CBT, and EFT.
