Introduction to Polyvagal Theory: Befriending Your Autonomic Nervous System with SAFE-T®
June 4, 2022 @ 10:00 am - June 5, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
Did you know that the School of SAFE-T®’s mission is…
To optimize the therapeutic experience by creating safety and connection using interoception, imagery, touch, play, movement and creativityto restore well-being?
To get to the heart of creating safety and connection in therapy, you need an understanding of Polyvagal Theory. PVT is a brain-body science that has helped thousands of therapists make significant breakthroughs with clients.
While you might recognise the value of bringing the body into trauma treatment, you might not yet know how to apply interventions that client’s want to engage in. Interventions that clients will remember. Interventions that will create change. From the inside out.
Which is why I am offering a two-day online training to simplify the science and show you how to use PVT to move clients beyond cycles of avoidance and re-traumatisation using the most cutting-edge, creative & playful tools; tools that are unique to the practice of SAFE-T®. Please join me online and live for an…
Introduction to Polyvagal Theory: Befriending Your Autonomic Nervous System using SAFE-T®
I’d love you to join me for two insightful days where I break down the science to help you understand what Polyvagal Theory is all about; bring you somatic, creative & expressive exercises and experiments that support regulation & increase vagal tone; and provide small group discussions with peers that enhance your learning and networking with like-minded professionals.
You will receive an ACA accredited certificate where you can gain OPD points. And best of all, you will gain a new, personal, visual and tangible understanding of your own nervous system, as well as discovering new ways to support flexibility between states of protection and connection.
It excites me to know that a deeper understanding of Polyvagal Theory can support therapists to help client’s create greater capacity for recognising, seeking and creating safety, as opposed to automatically detecting and being hijacked by threat; and increasing healthy connection with others, instead of repeated patterns of behaviour that leave clients feeling lonely and hopeless.

I will send you an invoice, and once paid, you will receive a welcome email with a link to the training.
This training is newly developed and is not a part of either of my other training series, however, it forms a foundation to the success of SAFE-T®.
I encourage you to take this opportunity now to learn about this fascinating modality and approach to trauma healing. We are experiencing a time in history that is completely unique and highly stressful. Climate crisis, Covid-19 and War are not just possibilities, they are all impacting our world today. Add to this a painful history of trauma, or a stressful lifestyle and we have a crisis in mental health like never before. If you have been intrigued by SAFE-T® or Polyvagal Theory before, now is the time to embark on this journey from protection to connection and to add some new tools to your therapeutic toolbox.
For those of you who are considering working with me in 2022 or beyond, either in the SAFE-T® training or in the Certificate in Trauma Informed Sand & Symbol training, this will be a wonderful opportunity to get a glimpse into my unique approach to healing trauma and repatterning attachment disruption.
Clients come to counselling suffering from a compromised ability to regulate their autonomic responses. What we know is that the autonomic nervous system is shaped by early experience and reshaped with ongoing experience.
Thankfully, habitual response patterns can be interrupted, and new patterns can be created. Teaching your clients to safely listen to their autonomic stories and shape their systems toward safety and connection is possible.
What’s also exciting is that in therapy clients can experience co-regulation and connection to your ventral vagal state and can safely explore experiences of mobilisation and collapse. The experiential exercises introduced in these workshops can be introduced to clients in sessions and practiced between sessions.
Micro-moments build the foundation for your client’s physiological and psychological well-being. With practice, your clients can replace disruption with a new state of equilibrium.
