Somatic Experiencing in Louisville, KY

Somatic Experiencing is often used to treat a range of issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and unresolved emotional issues related to past traumas.

Somatic Experiencing, referred to as SE, is a short-term naturalistic and therapeutic approach designed to help individuals heal from the effects of trauma, stress, and overwhelming life experiences.

The central concept of Somatic Experiencing is that the body plays a crucial role in trauma recovery, and it focuses on the physiological and somatic (body) responses to trauma. Unlike traditional talk therapy that primarily works from the "top-down" (mind to body), Somatic Experiencing is a "bottom-up" approach that starts with the body and gradually incorporates cognitive and emotional processing. Our bodies are wise, it is time to get still, listen, and transform yourself.
