Welcome! We appreciate your interest in our professional organization. We are a therapist-centered membership association committed to organizing, representing, and shaping the future of psychotherapy. Supported by a rich history in somatic psychology and the healing potential of body/mind integration, body psychotherapists help people to deal with their concerns not only through talking but also by helping them to become deeply aware of their bodily sensations, emotions, images, movements, and behaviours. Clients become more conscious of how they breathe, move, and speak, and where they experience feelings in their bodies. Through this awareness they create the change they seek in their lives.
