How Do SE Treatments Work?
Experiencing trauma disrupts your nervous system and your natural arousal settings, causing changes in your brain. Talk therapy doesn’t get you to the places in your body and brain where trauma is stored.
SE treatments revolve around trauma and how you can release it from your body and your mind. We help you access traumatic events in a safe way so that you’ll be able to break negative patterns and move on with a new sense of personal empowerment.
