Somatic Experiencing Individual Sessions

Trauma is a fact of life. It does NOT, however, have to be a life sentence.
— Peter A Levine PhD

The SE trauma resolution method does not require you  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. 

You will be offered an environment of impartial and compassionate support to facilitate the release of trauma throughout your body.

Peter Levine has said that trauma does not rest in the event but in the individual's nervous system. 

Most of us hold trauma in our bodies, even if we don't realise it. Luckily, the body has its own organic intelligence and knows how to unwind that trauma once the nervous system is healthy. That is the main purpose of SE ~ to help your nervous system remember how to regulate itself so that you can live life in a more balanced and alive way. SE gently guides the body back to health.

By paying attention to your nervous system,  you will be  supported  in the experience of returning to  a more 'coherent' and 'resilient' nervous system.

Somatic Experiencing sessions can help with:

  • Depression

  • Releasing trauma held in the body

  • Reducing chronic stress and anxiety

  • Restoring inner balance

  • Resetting the nervous system

  • Enhancing resilience to stress

  • Increasing your vitality, equanimity, and capacity to actively engage in life

  • Reclaiming your life force energy

  • And much more!

Individualised sessions respect the needs and safety of each client as the work resolves trauma or accumulated stress within  system. At the same time the process promotes a sense of well being within. As a result of this people’s bodies are able to find freedom from things that have been affecting their lives either in the short term or for some decades.  

I feel as though I am beginning to tap into myself and this is something I have not been able to do for countless years.
