Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a healing modality developed by Dr. Peter Levine that teaches people how to settle and release physiological activation (stress).
In this day and age, most of us are probably activated most of the day without any experience of settling or regulating the nervous system. It is important to be able to do this, as it allows our body to rest and repair.
SE teaches strategies to settle the nervous system and can often help people regain a sense of themselves. I believe through SE, people can thrive in life, rather than just survive.
An SE practitioner will support a person to be with uncomfortable sensations in their body and help to gently unwind them through tracking and using the person's resources to help regulate them. It is particularly useful in managing stress and reducing tension in the body.
"SE teaches simple, powerful strategies that mobilise the body's innate self-healing systems - the same physiological processes that mend broken bones and fight disease."
55 minute online sessions are £65 per session.
