TRAUMA RECOVERY WORK

  Somatic Experiencing developed by Peter Levine is a titrated approach to healing the repercussions of stress and trauma.  Through SE there is a "feather edge," or a "just right" sense of engagement that can support coherence & completion to the responses of fight, flight & freeze in our nervous system as understood through The Polyvagal Theory by Dr. Stephen Porges. 


In supporting the reconnection to ourself that is expressed through self-regulation within, 

and co-regulation in relationship, 

we are able to feel inner stability, 

self-compassion & personal agency.
