If you have struggled to engage with therapy before, perhaps because of anxiety, trauma or difficulties in processing, you may benefit from a new listening therapy, called the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP).
The SSP addresses the following areas:
- Social and emotional difficulties
- Auditory sensitivities
- Anxiety and trauma related challenges
- Stressors that impact adversely on social engagement
The SSP was developed by neuroscientist Dr Stephen Porges and is based on over 40 years’ research into the relationship between the autonomic nervous system and social-emotional processes.
It is a five-day intervention, which involves listening to filtered music, which acts on the autonomic nervous system in a way which reduces stress and auditory sensitivity, while enhancing capacity for social engagement and emotional resilience.
Once your physiological and emotional state is calm, it is expected that you will be more open to social interactions, less affected by environmental noises and more receptive to therapy.
