Hakomi is a mindfulness-based, body centred psychotherapy that was founded By Ron Kurtz in the 1970’s. The word is a Native American word meaning something like “how are you really in yourself?” Hakomi draws on many orientations including Buddhism, Gestalt and Humanistic. The underlying philosophy of Hakomi is based on the principles of mindfulness, organicity, non-violence, unity and mind-body-spirit wholism.
As a Certified Hakomi Therapist, I use mindfulness as a tool in therapy to access unconscious, deeply held beliefs about who we are and our place in the world. These beliefs govern how we organise our own experience. They continue to shape our lives by influencing the choices we make. Once we bring these beliefs into our conscious awareness, we are able to re-organise our experience of ourselves and our world to be more in keeping with how we want to be.
Hakomi offers clients a gentle, powerful technique of deep self-discovery and transformation.
