Somatic Experiencing helps clients tune into emotions held in the body to heal psychological trauma. This approach changes the way you respond to trauma.
Trauma gets stored in the body and becomes activated whenever the nervous system senses a threat or danger. The body responds in fight, flight, freeze and fawn responses. The stored up trauma energy often results in maladaptive coping mechanisms to manage these sensations.
By healing the trauma that is stored in the body, a person can learn how to respond to situations, rather than react. Resulting in you feeling like you have control over your emotions and behaviors.
The therapists at Onyx will help you learn how your body responds to trauma, heal the nervous system and respond to situations in a healthy way.
