I've done therapy and it didn't work. How is SE® different?
SE® is NOT talk therapy. SE® engages focused awareness of bodily sensations to engage innate self-regulation and healing.
SE® helps individuals develop body awareness to renegotiate and heal trauma rather than relive or re-enact trauma.
SE® naturally builds greater and greater inner resiliency, self-regulation, and wellness.
SE® is experienced as your own journey of healing, rather than someone else "healing" you.

“We believe that trauma is not in the event itself; it lies in the resiliency of the nervous system. In others words, how quickly does the person who experienced the overwhelm bounce back, if at all?
This means that after the event is over, if the children or adults affected are still registering danger signals in their body, they may easily get stuck in a vicious cycle of fight, flight or freeze, become alternately hyper-vigilant, or dissociated and aloof.
Either of these states may cascade into a myriad of symptoms including sleeplessness, aggression, social problems, academic problems, and eventually, if unresolved, PTSD.”
