Introduction to Sexual Grounding Therapy©
For the first time in the UK, Helena Løvendal and Geoff Lamb are presenting an introduction to this innovative therapy, which has been practiced in Europe since the late 90's.
Sexual Grounding Therapy© is a powerful form of psychological self-development, rooted in experiential body-psychotherapy, delivered in a group format. It was developed by the Dutch developmental psychologist and body-psychotherapist Willem Poppeliers and represents an innovative approach to systemic, body-oriented psychosexual therapy. Sexual Grounding Therapy© offers something that is missing from many psychotherapeutic methods in that it focuses explicitly, directly, but at the same time sensitively on the myriad of problematic issues which surround sexuality and relationships.
Poppeliers follows Freud in considering the primal life force to be sexual, but goes beyond Freud’s original pioneering work by exploring how sexual energy manifests itself during the whole of a person's lifetime. In particular, Sexual Grounding Therapy© provides a framework for exploring how being born into the world of our parents relationship, with all its human frailties, and into our cultural context, can affect the natural flow of our energy. Willem Poppeliers’ work offers us a way to regain our healthy sexual functioning, based on his model of psychosexual development and maturation, which spans the whole of our lives from birth to death.
