Somatic Experiencing - SE®

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a mind/body psychotherapy that assists the nervous system return to healthy functioning when it has become stuck in an unresolved fight, flight, or freeze pattern. Many have heard of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which is a severe form of nervous system disorder. There are also nervous disorders as a result of traffic accidents, bodily injuries, assults, medical procedures, simple or not so simple falls, relational trauma, and more. The nervous system can also become disrupted from relationships that are abusive or as a result of parenting styles that did not meet the emotional needs of the child which often lead to anxiety and depression in adulthood.
The good news is that the nervous system , the mind/body, has plactisty and with focused attention in the therapuetic context, it can be worked with carefully and gently to discharge the stuck and repetitive nueronal and autonomic nervous system pathways allowing healing and restoring healthy functioning. SE's methods can be learned for everyday emotional regulation.
