Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor is a powerful – and empowering – mind-body therapy which uses movement to literally re-wire your negative thinking or behavioural patterns. Created by dancers Al Pesso and Diane Boyden in 1960, this widely-respected interactive and creative method enables you to heal past childhood wounds and complete unmet needs in a symbolic but emotionally satisfying way. Bessel Van Der Kolk includes a chapter on Pesso Boyden in The Body Keeps the Score (8) and describes it thus:
Over the past 40 years, Al Pesso and Diane Boyden-Pesso have perfected an extraordinarily effective technique…. providing people with experiences that were missing during their growth and development. The artistry of [a Pesso Boyden] ‘structure’ can be a unique and profoundly life-altering experience.
Prof Bessel van der Kolk
International authority on working with trauma.
As an accredited Pesso Boyden practitioner, I deliver transformative sessions either in groups or one-on-one, both online and in person. The power of the method lies in enabling people to use movement to work through issues or memories which have been held in their body. Through physical movement you’ll experience what has been missing from your life, feeling that this is the final piece of the jigsaw you’ve been searching for, bringing satisfaction and fulfilment.
Clients from every walk of life report that Pesso Boyden is a genuinely fast-acting approach, finding that one session is worth 8 months of conventional therapy. Some clients find their lives transformed within a short period – others find it works well when combined with regular therapy over a longer time.
I love seeing the joy on people’s faces when they re-write their past script; a new version in which they felt safe, their opinions mattered, they didn’t feel abandoned, they felt their parents were proud of them, or they felt protected or loved.
