I will give an overview of Pesso Boyden System of Psychotherapy and examples of the work.
Al Pesso was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from USA Body Psychotherapy in 2012, when they recognised him as one of three living masters of of body based psychotherapy.
Later, this powerful methodology was celebrated by Professor Bessel van der Kolk in his acclaimed book, The Body Keeps the Score. Having an experience of this method as a client van der Kolk said, "Instantaneously I felt a deep release in my body - the constriction in my chest eased and my breathing became relaxed. That was the moment I decided to become Pesso's student".
In this talk, I will explore: the art of micro-tracking, the impact of The Witness figure, the precision required, using the body to ensure the changes last, the creation of a New Memory, and the fact that the healing is NOT in the relationship with the therapist, that the transfererence is transferred away from the therapist.
I know of no other method that can heal early attachment issues as effectively as Pesso Psychotherapy. When I came across PBSP as a client, I realised that despite 15 years of good quality talking therapy, my body was still loaded with trauma. Now, having been a PBSP client, my body is quiet and I feel deeply content.
