Polyvagal and Trauma Approaches

I am trained in the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) which is a polyvagal intervention and EMDR which is a trauma approach addressing numerous concerns and diagnoses. 

Definitions and General Information

Polyvagal System

The Polyvagal system is a complex network of nerves that regulates our physiological responses to stress and trauma. It plays a crucial role in our ability feel safe and connected to others. Understanding how the Polyvagal system works can help us better manage our emotions and improve our overall well-being.

Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)

The Safe and Sound Protocol is a non-invasive therapy that helps to regulate the nervous system and improve social engagement. It uses specially filtered music to stimulate the vagus nerve, which helps retrain the stress response. The therapy has been shown to be effective in treating range of conditions, including anxiety, trauma, and sensory processing issues.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a psychotherapy that has been proven effective in treating trauma and other mental health conditions. It involves a series of guided eye movements or other forms of bilateral stimulation help process traumatic memories and reduce their impact on daily life. If you're with trauma or other mental health issues, EMDR may be a helpful treatment option to consider.
