|Psychotherapy can mean to find words for the incomprehensible, to share it, to commit it to someone, to reflect experiences, to sort out, to work it out in order to leave it behind. Sometimes words cannot be found to express what affects the person deep inside. Creative media like dancing, movement, painting, writing, can pave the way to expression.
Psychotherapy can also mean to search for ways out of an acute crisis or traumatic experiences, and with the help of the therapist, to develop strategies for gaining ground again out of a painful situation.
Body therapies have a different approach but the same intent as psychotherapy: working on personal themes which may in a first place appear as physical problems; trying to establish a holistic understanding of what affects the person.
