COVID-19 Stress, Anxiety and Depression Somatic Experiencing

COVID-19 Stress, Anxiety and Depression

As the world confronts this pandemic there are so many emotions that can feel overwhelming.  Many feelings can be triggered and it may be useful to see a professional for help and perspective. As there are so many uncertainties and so many changes in routine many people find that mood changes are inevitable. That does not mean that solutions are impossible to find but sometimes a trained professional can serve as a guide for a more balanced and happier life.

Somatic Experiencing

Somatic Experiencing offers brief and holistic therapy for activating inner resources to resolve and heal emotional wounds. It can help clients to develop a level of calm and maintain productivity amidst traumatic experiences.

The human autonomic nervous system is the subject of Somatic Experiencing therapy, which helps the autonomic nervous system to regulate and balance itself after a traumatic experience.

Sessions for Somatic Experiencing are usually facilitated on a one-on-one basis and the client will track his or her emotions, which provides valuable information that the therapist can use.

Somatic Experiencing is a great tool for dealing with trauma, as well as tensions, and sexual concerns. SE is similar to EMDR which also integrates the physical body with the therapeutic process in order to gain insight and awareness.
