Psychophonetics is a modality of holistic coaching, counselling, psychotherapy and psycho-somatic therapy created by Yehuda Tagar in the 80’s and 90’s as an original form of ‘Expression-Based’ self-healing. Its sources include the holistic anthroposophical understanding of the human being as constant interaction of body, soul and spirit, of illness and crisis as an opportunities for personal development and of the ‘Internal Healer’ wisdom inside the human constitution; a developments of Rudolf Steiner’s Psychosopy; Phenomenology, Person Centred Therapy, Arts/expression therapy and Integrative medicine: psycho-neuro-endocrino-immunology (PNEI). Psychophonetics enables people to become active participants in the process of their own healing on the psychological, physiological, psycho-somatic and relationship levels.
In its healing process Psychophonetics mobilizes the deep resources of Body-Awareness, Movement & Gesture, Spontaneous Visualization and the healing power of the sounds of human speech.
It develops the ‘Empathic Intelligence’ which is potential in everyone today by activating deep perception of human experience both in the therapist and in the client. It Puts the client’s self-awareness at the center of the therapeutic/developmental process, preventing ‘therapeutic dependency’ by facilitating the continuation of the therapy at home. It enables a connection between the intelligence based on the central nervous system – and the normally unconscious intelligence of the autonomic nervous system to which all body memory and defense mechanisms are accessible.
