Somatic Experiencing® (SE) is a short-term naturalistic approach to the restoration and healing of trauma. It is a psycho-biophysiological approach to trauma and it is being taught throughout the world (with a three year post-graduate training). It is the result of over forty years of observation, research, and hands-on development by Dr. Peter Levine, author of Waking the Tiger. Based upon the realization that human beings have an innate capacity to overcome the effects of trauma, SE has touched and transformed the lives of many thousands. It restores self-regulation and a sense of aliveness, relaxation and wholeness to traumatized people who have had these precious gifts taken away.
SE is not dependent on drugs or other outside agents. It helps people access their own instinctive ability to rebound from overwhelming experiences by helping them complete the threat response (fight or flight) and move from immobility or freeze to mobility. By completing the threat response cycle the energy fueling the symptoms of trauma are diminished. SE enables and empowers clients to process trauma related sensations and emotions by facilitating the building of capacity and resiliency within the person.
SE is a very gentle, respectful and empowering approach. Clients report feelings of expansion and transformation with a renewed sense of capacity for joy and aliveness once they are freed from the “frozen moment in time” that is, TRAUMA!
