Safe and Sound Protocol Consultation
What is the Safe and Sound Protocol and who can benefit?
After years of research, Dr Stephen Porges identified a biological order of human response that is active in all human experience
We come into the world wired to connect. With our first breath, we embark on a quest to feel safe in our bodies, in our environments, and in our relationships with others. The autonomic nervous system is our personal surveillance system, always on guard, asking the question “Is this safe?”
This surveillance system's goal is to protect us by sensing safety and risk, listening moment by moment to what is happening in and around our bodies and in the connections, we have to others. This listening happens far below awareness and far away from our conscious control.
Based on Dr. Stephen Porges research, The Safe and Sound Therapy was developed to treat trauma, stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience.
