Somatic Experiencing (SE)
Aims to help individuals become more aware of their body and learn techniques to release physical tension. These can include breathing exercises, sensation awareness, physical exercise, massage, and grounding exercises.
Based on the idea that traumatic experiences cause dysfunction in a person’s nervous system and prevent them from processing the experience. The goal of somatic experiencing, therefore, is to help an individual notice physical sensation stemming from their mental health issues and use that awareness to work through painful feelings and emotions.
Therapy can help people who suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, grief, addiction, problems with relationships, and sexual function, as well as issues related to trauma and abuse.
