What is Somatic Experiencing®?
Somatic Experiencing® is a therapeutic approach developed to address and heal the effects of trauma and stress on the body. It recognises that traumatic experiences can become trapped in the body, leading to various physical and psychological and emotional symptoms.
SEaims to release and resolve these trapped sensations and helps individuals regain a sense of safety, connection, and self empowerment.
Founder of Somatic Experiencing®
Somatic Experiencing® was founded by Dr. Peter A. Levine, a renowned psychologist and biologist, and an expert in the field of trauma. Dr. Levine developed SE based on his extensive research and observations of how animals in the wild recover from life-threatening situations, without experiencing trauma-related symptoms. He recognised the innate ability of the human body to heal from trauma and devised a method to access and facilitate this natural healing process.
How is Somatic Experiencing Useful?
Somatic Experiencing® offers numerous benefits for individuals, who have experienced trauma or existential stress. Here are some key ways in which it is useful:
1. Trauma Resolution:
SE provides a safe and supportive space for individuals to explore and release the physiological and psychological effects of trauma. By addressing the root causes of trauma and its impact on the nervous system, SE helps individuals gradually resolve traumatic experiences.
2. Body Awareness:
SE focuses on developing body awareness and a skillful ways of mindfulness, allowing individuals to reconnect with their bodily sensations and gain a deeper understanding of their physical and emotional states. This increased awareness promotes a natural way of self-regulation and supports the restoration of balance in the nervous system.
3. Regulation of the Nervous System:
Trauma is not in the event, but a trapped experience of the past that continuous to loop in the present, and thereby often disrupts the natural regulation of the nervous system. This can lead to symptoms such as anxiety, hyper vigilance, and hyper arousal and loss of self regulation. SE utilises gentle techniques and interventions to help restore the innate regulation of the nervous system, promoting a sense of calm and stability.
4. Resilience and Empowerment:
Somatic Experiencing aims to enhance an individual's resilience by strengthening their capacity to cope with stress and adversity. Through the process of healing trauma, individuals can reclaim their personal power, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and experience increased self-confidence.

The Somatic Experiencing Training
Somatic Experiencing (SE) training is a comprehensive educational program designed for mental health professionals, medical practitioners, bodyworkers, and individuals interested in trauma healing and resilience. It provides a structured curriculum to develop the necessary skills and knowledge to practice SE effectively.
These trainings are offered by Somatic Experiencing International based out of the US, founded by the founder Peter Levine. To know more about the foundation-
The SE training begins with a foundational Basic Training program, typically consisting of two modules. These modules cover the theoretical framework of SE, the physiology of trauma, the role of the nervous system, and the principles of working with trauma-related symptoms. Participants learn various SE techniques and interventions to facilitate the healing process.
2. Intermediate and Advanced Training:
Following the completion of Beginner Training, participants can continue their SE education through Intermediate and Advanced Training programs. These advanced levels deepen the understanding of trauma physiology, expand knowledge about complex trauma, birth trauma, developmental and emotional trauma. Also other categories of trauma are being addressed such as inescapable attack, terror, horror, high impact, and many more, and along those categories the participants will explore more advanced SE interventions. Participants refine their skills in working with diverse populations and complex clinical presentations.
3. Supervision and Consultation:
Throughout the training process, participants are encouraged to engage in supervision and consultation with experienced SE practitioners. Supervision provides an opportunity to discuss cases, receive guidance, and further develop skills under the mentorship of a qualified supervisor. This guidance ensures the ethical and effective application of SE principles in practice.
4. Experiential Learning:
Somatic Experiencing training emphasises experiential learning, allowing participants to explore and integrate the concepts and techniques on a personal level. Through guided exercises, role-plays, and demonstrations, participants gain firsthand experience of the SE process and deepen their somatic awareness.
After completing the required training hours and fulfilling other criteria, participants may pursue certification in Somatic Experiencing. Certification provides formal recognition of competency in SE and demonstrates a commitment to professional excellence. Certified SE practitioners are listed in the official directory and adhere to the ethical guidelines set forth by the SE professional community.
