Beneath the monolithic label of anxiety are ‘camouflaged’ a wealth of incomplete and identifiable somatic responses, sensations, and bodily feelings. These body experiences represent the individual’s response to past experience, but also to their ‘genetic potential’ in the form of unrealized defensive responses. The recognition that these instinctive orientation and defensive behaviours are organized motor patterns, that is, prepared motor acts, helps to return the body to the head. Anxiety derives ultimately from a failure to complete motor acts.

Janet rarely cried but my attention to bodily signs of vulnerability and the very immediate support and contact provided by my body put her in touch with new depths of sadness and longing. At another point, observing the grasping motions she was making with her hands, I gave her a cushion and suggested she let her hands do what they needed to. The physicality of trying to tear it to pieces – a motoric expressive act – enabled her briefly to tap into the fierceness of her rage.
