Somatic Experiencing Sessions

Teja is currently offering Somatic Experiencing (SE) in Devon (Buckfastleigh and Totnes) and over skype. SE works to build a more resilient nervous system, and in the process, trauma patterning is often discharged from the body. What does this mean?

Here is an introductory video to SE…

SE could be described as a specialized form of mindfulness that builds resilience in the autonomic nervous system. Sessions are guided by tracking the body’s experience through sensation, images, touch, arousal of emotion, and spontaneous movements. With certain traumatic/difficult memories stored in the body, it can be tempting to experience them in an overwhelming way. With SE, we often slow the process down and take it to a workable level, where we may discover how the body is wanting to discharge a pattern. Like a wild animal coming out of a freeze response, this may involve some trembling/shaking, sweating, yawning or heavy breathing.

Sessions are tailored for the individual’s needs, and structured so that the healing work may be best integrated into one’s life. This way, it’s not just an interesting experience to remember, but something that may make lasting changes. This is because when your nervous system is able to work through something challenging without being overwhelmed, this creates resilience which serves as a wider container to allow various forms of stress and challenge to pass through more easily. For this reason, SE is not only very supportive to people who have PTSD, but is beneficial for people experiencing chronic stress.

 

Here is a video of a war veteran who was suffering from severe PTSD, and shows some of his journey with SE. It’s a long video, but if you have a few seconds, it’s valuable to even look at Ray’s system in the beginning, and then in the end. This way, you may have a tangible sense of the large “charge” in Ray’s nervous system in the beginning, and how visible the accumulated discharge is in Ray’s system over time.

” My session with Teja was a wonderful experience. Throughout the session I felt safe and at ease and very guided. I was able to tune in to my body, and the experiences and emotions living within parts of my physical being, that were previously hidden. I left the session feeling awake, aware and connected to my physical presence. As the weeks went on these sensations simply increased and became a part of my day to day acknowledgement of self. Teja supported the touching of something held within my body’s physical memory that needed healing and since that day forward I feel as though the traumas we explored have slowly been softened, healed and released a little each day. For this I am very grateful. The atmosphere and energy Teja generates in his sessions are truly beautiful and the session was driven at a pace that was comfortable for me.  I would definitely have more sessions with him. ” Monica, London

” I found the session with you hugely beneficial. As I said, in decades of treatments by great practitioners I have never felt the relief I felt in my head during and following the treatment. You were respectful, super tuned in and the treatment was gorgeous and effective. It went to the root of the issue and there is more there to explore. I have felt relief for longer than usual following the treatment. It initiated a healing response with strong dreams afterwards too.” Sara, Devon

“Meeting Teja has been one of the biggest blessings granted to me in this lifetime. His deep wisdom and abundant compassion allows you to fully let go to dig through your shadows and find the inner essence and wisdom resting within. The work he is doing can truly shift your life and transform your suffering into your greatest gifts. He has helped me in so many ways, and I would recommend his healing to anyone on this earth experiencing suffering of mind, body, or spirit. He is a gift to us all.”  -Brett, MA, USA
