Understanding the Connection Between Your Personality and Your Body
Our total person, mind, body and spirit, is functionally one in its expression of our struggle to be a loving, fulfilled, autonomous person in this world. When the personality balance we have established is challenged or doesn't work in our relationships, we begin to feel anxious, compulsive, depressed or generally dissatisfied. We enter psychotherapy looking for way to change. We slowly begin to understand that our automatic way of being in relationship doesn't get us what we want. We discover that in order to survive in our family, we made costly compromises that have resulted in a life which now feels limited, constricted or unfulfilled. Bioenergetic psychotherapy becomes the safe relationship wherein we can discover the parts of our self that was compromised; explore the present day circumstances that trigger us into our compromised way of being and then experience our truer self in a therapeutic relationship and in the world.
In Bioenergetic psychotherapy, as we tell our life story and the problems that bring us into therapy we begin to recognize that our current condition is directly related to our inability to expand and to feel new situations in our life. Our physical form and corresponding personality pattern is not physically and emotionally flexible enough to move with and integrate the excitation produced in changing situations. We are therefore unable to respond appropriately or in a fulfilling manner to our life's demands.
