Designed to Help SE® Practitioners Feel More…
Confident – Comprehensive – Comfortable
…when applying Somatic Experiencing® guidelines in the Helping Professions to aid others in restoring self-regulation and well-being by successfully attending to incomplete stress response and other psycho-biological underpinnings of trauma. (Wow, that was a mouthful.) Created by Anthony Twig Wheeler
Hi, I’m Anthony Twig Wheeler
I’m personally and professionally dedicated to doing what I can to help this be a safer and saner world.
One place I’ve put a lot of my effort in that direction has been through my involvement with the Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner and SE® learning community. I’m a Fan.
I like doing that. It helps me feel safer imaging other practitioners having an easier time helping their clients feel better.
SE-Reflections.com was created out of my commitment to this sharing and effort.
I’m glad you’re here. If you’re an SE Practitioner or other Helping Professional the material on this site offers solace and encouragement along your way in supporting other people to feel better in this wayward world.
“Thank you Twig for your tremendous understanding of SE and for your spontaneous spirit, your humanness and all round openness to be brilliant, to stumble, to pause, to create.
You have composed such a library here for the SE Community.”

Brief Account of the Journey to Create Twig’s SE-Reflections.com
A Project Like This Develops Over Time
I joined the SE learning community in 2004 as a bodyworker and social theorist with a great personal need and a defined ambition to help spread the good news I’d found in Peter Levine’s book Waking the Tiger.
Fortunately I received profound personal and professional assistance through the SE training, both from receiving the work personally and through contact with my primary SE mentor for many years – Steven Hoskinson, now of Organic Intelligence®.
Along the way I’ve helped train hundreds, if not thousands of Somatic Experiencing® Practitioners throughout the world assisting in trainings and providing introductions, public speaking events and adjunctive workshops in Europe, DR Congo, Brazil, Australia, Japan, Canada and throughout the US.
I’m fully dedicated to an inclusive, expansive and world wide awareness of the psycho-biological insights and therapeutic rationale and guidelines formulated by Peter Levine, PhD and enhanced by the worldwide SE training community.
Everywhere I’ve engaged with the SE community I’ve found thoughtful, heartfelt, insightful people who are revitalizing the nature of aide and therapy by including appreciation of the autonomic stress response and how we can better support its completion and cultivate resiliency. In short, I’m a huge fan of SE Land.
As one participant in a worldwide effort of dedicated helping practitioners to realize the potential of healing with attention to our psycho-phsyiology, I’ve created this site SE-Reflections.com to share my contributions to our shared work.
Please make yourself at home here. I’ve spent over 15 years cultivating the material available on this site.
There is plenty for you to make use of as you see fit.
