Treating trauma with emotion-focused somatic therapy


Sometimes referred to as somatic therapy, our unique form of trauma therapy is an alternative to traditional trauma counselling for problems such as depression, anxiety, or other emotional concerns that stop you feeling good and having a quality life. Emotion-focused trauma aims to address the current mental state of an individual by helping them gently revisit painful moments in their childhood by using their body (soma). This allows them to re-experience these traumas in a safe and supportive environment with the presence of a trained therapist. Through repeated visits, emotion-focused trauma therapy poses the potential to act as a long-term treatment towards resolving trauma and it’s symptoms.



The Jamillon Centre recommends for anyone interested in a different but effective approach to traditional trauma counselling methods or you are interested in knowing more about emotion-focused trauma therapy please read our FAQ before making any appointments with our therapists.
