LI – Lifespan Integration

Lindsay has completed advanced LI training and is listed on the Lifespan Integration Therapist Directory.

Lifespan Integration is a gentle, body-based therapeutic method which heals without re-traumatizing.  It relies on the innate ability of the body-mind to heal itself.

LI uses a common psychological technique called an ‘affect bridge’.  By focusing on a key thought, emotion, sensation and/or behaviour, clients are able to source the experience or memory that is connected to their current problem. The therapist guides the client to imaginally revisit this past memory, taking into the past whatever is needed to resolve the memory.   For example, this could include information, support, comfort or advocacy for their younger self.  When the memory is resolved, the therapist leads the client through time to the present using a chronological sequence of visual images and scenes from the client’s life. This ‘Timeline’ of memories and images proves to the client’s body-mind system that time has passed and that life is different now. This “proof” occurs at a deeper level than is generally possible with talk therapy methods.
