Guidance and Accompaniment for the Aspiring SE® Practitioner

A site supporting helping care professionals exploring human psycho-biology, the new traumatology and somatic healing arts.

Created specifically for those studying Peter Levine’s Somatic Experiencing® therapy modality and applying it to their work with distressed clients.

 

Includes frequent shout-outs to other Somatic therapy traditions, most notably Steven Hoskinson’s Organic Intelligence® modality and the Polyvagal Theory by Stephen Porges.

 

Created by Anthony Twig Wheeler, a fully engaged SEP, Consultant, Enthusiast and Advocate.

 

NOTE: This is not a place to learn Somatic Experiencing® wholecloth. That can be done with the Somatic Experience Trauma Institue. This is an independent adjunctive support site for SE Students and Practitioners.
