Somatic Experiencing is a soft method helping to relieve the nervous system and find broader and much healthier freedom of action and moods.
The focus is on the serendipity (perception) in our body and the reorganization of our natural orientation, our reflexes of fight and flight here and now which have been distorted and disturbed and our energies can get blocked and cause all sorts of disturbances.
Usually the therapist and the client sit in front of each other. But there can be situations where you stand or lie down or move. The basis is the moment right now where everything can show and blockades can be solved. That doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to go back to the initial incident. Most of the times the traumatic incident has passed, sometimes even a long time while you do therapy, but the symptoms have stayed.
My life has changed a lot through this method and I appreciate the soft and slow but very effective work that can be done without actually „doing“ anything.
Every human being finds his/her own pace and direction by perceiving, feeling and sensing.
