Somatic Experiencing (SE™)

SE integrates the body, nervous system, mind, and emotions through a process including talk therapy, sensory tracking, and imagination. Somatic Experiencing is a mind-body modality that works directly with the nervous system to relieve and resolve symptoms of trauma. It was developed by Peter A. Levine, PhD to address the effects of trauma. 

Levine developed this approach after observing that prey animals, whose lives are routinely threatened in the wild, are able to recover readily by physically releasing the energy they accumulate during stressful events. Humans, on the other hand, often override these natural ways of regulating the nervous system with feelings of shame and pervasive thoughts, judgments, and fears. Somatic Experiencing aims to help people move past the place where they might be “stuck” in processing a traumatic event.

WHAT IS A SESSION LIKE?
The SE trauma resolution method does not require the traumatized person to re-tell or re-live the traumatic event. Instead, it offers the opportunity to engage, complete, and resolve—in a slow and supported way—the body’s instinctual fight, flight and freeze responses. This resets the nervous system, restores inner balance, enhances resilience to stress, and increases people’s vitality, equanimity, and capacity to actively engage in life. SE integrates the body, nervous system, mind, and emotions through a process including talk therapy, sensory tracking, and imagination.
