Short-term therapy for long-term wellbeing
How does Autogenic Training work

AT involves learning a set of easy mental exercises using designated phrases that are repeated as silent thoughts while sitting or lying in a specific, supported and neutral posture. It allows the mind and body to switch off the 'fight/flight/freeze' stress response, and instead promotes rest, recuperation and recovery. Autogenic means self-generating, - you are, in effect, treating yourself. With the support and guidance of a therapist, you gradually learn to trust your own process of self-healing.

In our society we tend to favour our left brain hemisphere which is a place of logical thinking and working with information, while the right brain hemisphere, which is a place of emotions, pictures and imaginations, is often neglected. When you practice AT, the two hemispheres work together, moving towards balance.
