If you are coming to this website, chances are you are struggling with effects of chronic stress or trauma, whether it be exhaustion, emotional dysregulation, hypervigilance, or even a lack of connection with yourself or others.
Somatic Experiencing is a gentle, non-cathartic approach to working with effects of trauma and chronic stress, The way this is negotiated is through the bulidng your capacity to regulate your own nervous system. Simply put, we slow things down enough in the present, for the body to complete some kind of innate self-protection response.
Although we cannot change the past, we can re-negotiate our relationship to our experience in the present. Traumatization occurs when our capacity to cope through something, is overwhelmed because it just happens too fast for us. In re-negotiating trauma, slowing down and building a sense of safety or "friendliness" with our bodies, is a necessary first step to allow this capacity to show up!
Somatic Trauma resolution can help with:
Emotional & early childhood trauma
Medical trauma, surgeries
Grief & loss
Prenatal & birth trauma
