Somatic Experiencing® (SE™)
Somatic Experiencing® (SE™) is a treatment approach that is designed to release and resolve the symptoms of PTSD and developmental trauma. Somatic Experiencing was created by Dr. Peter Levine, and is based on the understanding of how the body naturally stores energy during a traumatic event, the role of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and the importance of releasing excess energy that has been stored during a traumatic event.
As an Advanced Level I Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I can offer the guidance for clients to increase their somatic awareness, supporting their body’s natural mechanism to relax and release trauma, through the process of tracking the body's response, allowing the body to self-regulate, and thereby moving out of the “survival reaction” of the fight, flight, or freeze response.
