Body Mapping: Exploring Trauma

Body mapping explores the inner and outer self of the client. It deconstructs how the client views themselves, how they perceive their output in their life and what ties them to the world. Body mapping helps clients inhabit their body as cognitive and emotional beings. It helps them give voice to the stories that have no words.

Body mapping works to help clients cultivate strengths and find meaning in who they are and who they want to be. It gives them courage and strength to tell their story and reach out to others who have gone through similar things.
