About Hakomi
The Hakomi Method of Experiential Psychotherapy is an elegant, comprehensive and highly effective approach to human change. Hakomi combines mindfulness, the body, and present experience to access and transform deeply held, life-limiting core beliefs. For over 30 years Hakomi has pioneered and integrated the use of mindfulness in the psychodynamic process. It is backed by thousands of hours of clinical applications and research into the neurological underpinnings of mindfulness. Hakomi can be successfully applied throughout a wide range of therapeutic applications (such as individual, couples and family therapy, group work) as well as in educational settings to facilitate self-exploration and personal growth.
