What Is PST?

“The mind is like the wind and the body like the sand:
if you want to know how the wind is blowing,
you can look at the sand”
Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen

Psychosexual Somatics® Therapy (PST) is an evolutionary, body-oriented
 therapeutic modality dealing with sexual and intimacy issues, developed by Mike 
Lousada. Unlike many somatic sexology trainings, PST approaches sexuality through the heart, not through the genitals.  It is a unique combination of psychotherapeutic and bodywork disciplines, based on the understanding that most sexual issues present as a combination of cognitive (mind) and somatic (body) symptoms. It is only by addressing both mind and body, therefore, that full resolution can be achieved.

Using the latest understandings from neuro-science PST has developed a neuro-
affective relational model that makes it ideally suited to safely help resolve client’s
 sexual, emotional and medical trauma. Through a combination of talk work and 
bodywork these, as well as non-traumatic intimacy issues, can be resolved. This allows
 the client to move into a more empowered relationship with their sexuality.

Five Stages

A therapeutic process may contain one or more of the following five stages:

  1. Cognitive Approach: Awareness of cognitive and affective issues through psychotherapeutic processes.
  2. Somatic Awareness: Connecting clients with sensation and emotions in their body through somatic mindfulness and other non-touch techniques.
  3. Physical Release: Of somatic and affective blocks and trauma through physical therapy.
  4. Erotic Mindfulness: Helps the client access their own inner erotic energy and notice any remaining resistances to this.
  5. Sexual Awakening: Sexual response and empowerment through pre-agreed touch, breath, sound and movement techniques.

PST offers a clearly boundaries, safe therapeutic space in which clients are supported to resolve intimacy issues both within the mind and the body. The model uses safe, powerful, quick and effective techniques to allow the client to understand their old, limiting patterns from the past, how these affect their present situation, and empowers them to make positive changes for their future.

How Does PST Work with Sexual Trauma?

PST uses a scientific and knowledge-based approach.  It is inevitable that when we work with sexuality, clients with trauma will come into our practice.  Many alternative or new age approaches to sexuality, such as tantra and de-armouring practices, focus on the experience of expansion and of ‘pushing through’ resistances.  This type of approach has been shown not only to be ineffective in the long-run but also potentially harmful to the client.

In contrast, PST never forces or pushes through resistance or ‘body armouring’.  Instead it honours these as important aspects of self and supports the client to allow these places to open in their own time, when witnessed with loving gentleness.  The client leads this process and the PST practitioner is trained to observe the clients neural regulation or dis-regulation ensuring that the client does not expand or push through any embodied resistance too fast.

PST also emphasises the importance not only of expansion, but also of integration.  It is this dual pulsation of expansion and integration that makes PST a uniquely safe approach to working with sexual trauma.
