For this, the therapist needs both sensitivity to micro- NEUROSCIENCE AND THE LAW OF THE SELF 29 changes or ‘energetic’ shifts in the client, and the capacity to speak to both the left (insight-oriented) and right (feeling-oriented) brain of the client. This is epitomized in the sophisticated use of countertransference. Countertransference emerges from the therapist’s very rapid processing of global and micro bodily information in themselves and the client. As these impressions take some kind of form – an impulse, a metaphor, a sensation, a feeling – they can be more fully processed, leading to new in-the-moment hypotheses.

In optimal circumstances this is an intrinsic capacity which develops from the dependency of early infancy to the complex, varied and interdependent self-regulation of a healthy adult. The organization of the brain-body is one of loops, spirals and complementary structures. Reciprocal tension between the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems manages the metabolic and emotional energy for engaging and responding, and recovering equilibrium. As we have seen, the ANS is organized largely through the tripartite hierarchy of emotion-regulating sites, which feed into the right-brain.

Both flight-or-fight and immobility are adaptive responses. Where the flightor-fight response is appropriate, freezing will be relatively maladaptive; where freezing is appropriate, attempts to flee or fight are likely to be maladaptive. Biologically, immobility is a potent adaptive strategy where active escape is prevented. When, however, it becomes a preferred response pattern in situations of activation in general, it is profoundly debilitating. Immobility becomes the crippling, fixating experience of traumatic and panic anxiety.
