"I have patients who are off all of their medications. I have patients who no longer suffer from panic attacks. I have patients who are no longer haunted by traumatic visions. I am trained in other techniques. However, SE is the only method I have found that consistently helps people reorganize their nervous systems and greatly reduce, if not completely erase, trauma symptoms. Although I understand that the SE techniques are grounded in biology, the results are nothing short of miraculous.
