Have you been in therapy for quite some time and just aren’t feeling change in the way that you want? This is very common for folks engaging solely in cognitive-based therapy who also have a history of trauma. In order to heal and create change, we must engage the nervous system and the body. 

Have you heard about somatic-based therapy but are hesitant to get started? Starting body-based therapy can feel very intimidating because it’s unfamiliar and unknown. 

This is where the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) comes in. This protocol is an evidence-based therapy that uses filtered music to bring more safety into the body. What does this look like in simple terms? You are listening to music in session, with check-ins throughout. 

How does the SSP work? The specially filtered music sends cues of safety to your nervous system which supports embodiment and resilience. The music stimulates the vagus nerve which shifts us out of our defense system (fight/flight) and into our ventral vagal system (safety and connection). This is incredibly important because health, growth, and restoration can only happen when we are in the ventral vagal part of our nervous system. So, if you’ve been in a chronic state of fight or flight, you might not have felt a lot of change happen in talk-based therapy. For more information on SSP, head over here.
