Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges. The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a five-hour listening protocol. The SSP is designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity. Which enhances a person’s ability to engage socially and build personal resilience. Based on Polyvagal Theory, the SSP calms the physical and emotional state of a person’s nervous system. Therefore, improves communication in a person’s everyday life. Which in turn helps an individual have more successful therapy with ability to express and understand themselves more fully.
The SSP is a research-based therapy showing significant results in just five hours in the following areas:
- Social engagement difficulties
- Auditory hypersensitivities
- Depressed mood
- Mood dysregulation
- Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADD, and ADHD
- Motion sickness
- Selective mutism
- Auditory Processing Disorder
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Emotional regulation difficulties
This protocol is tailored to help an individual retune their nervous system and can help with gaining a greater sense of safety. The 5-hour listening protocol is split up into 10 sessions. Celine will tailor your treatment to help you gain the best results. The treatment plan depends on each individuals nervous system needs and may take up to 16 sessions.
