Recovery Coaching


Somatic Experiencing Therapy


What is a Recovery Coach?

A recovery coach is a non-clinical professional who works with clients to help remove personal and environmental obstacles to recovery, links the (newly) recovering person to the recovery community, and serves as a personal guide and mentor in the management of personal and family recovery.

What is Somatic Experiencing?

The Somatic Experiencing® method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE™ approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.
