Somatic Experiencing

What is Somatic Experiencing®?

Simply put, Somatic Experiencing utilizes therapeutic talk and exercises to assist individuals to work through past traumatic experiences such as accidents, surgeries, assaults and so on that are effecting our day to day lives via anxiety, depression, phobias, compulsive disorders, anger issues, and other common struggles.  SE (Somatic Experiencing) looks at our bodies as intelligent organisms with the medicine needed to heal already contained in the body. Somatics accesses this innate ability to heal via the nervous system where all our past traumas are stored.  

Unlike Cognitive-based therapies, Somatic Psychotherapy focuses on getting out of your head and into your body's biological intelligence. This helps you release your past traumas while rebuilding resiliency in your nervous system. It aims to help people move past the place where they might be “stuck” in processing a traumatic event by re-establishing the natural flow between mind and body and the nervous system's natural rhythms between rest and alertness.

"You will gain insight, understanding and skills that will continue to assist in actively creating the life you want long after counselling comes to a close."
