SE™ Practitioner Testimonials

<thumbs up, Somatic Experiencing

SE™ Professional Training Graduate, LMFT

"As a healer, it has always been essential for me to be the change I want to see in others. The practice of SE™ has allowed me to heal emotional and physical traumas that I'd thought were untouchable. It allows me to be available for the same kinds of miraculous shifts within myself as those I witness in my clients."

Shirley Impellizzeri, PhD, Psychologist, Author, SEP

"I have patients who are off all of their medications….who no longer suffer from panic attacks….who are no longer haunted by traumatic visions. I am trained in other techniques…. 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."
