Having successfully trialled an on online group I have decided to run it regularly. Although, not suitable for everyone I am surprised by the support gained from online group sessions and the progress and breakthroughs individuals have made in this supported online environment.

The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) by Unyte-iLs is an evidence-based intensive listening programme aimed at those with anxiety, social communication difficulties and trauma that has been developed as a result of over four decades of peer-reviewed research, based on Dr Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory.
Music is played through over-ear headphones, which has been specially filtered in order to gradually expose the auditory system to different sound frequencies. It works by stimulating the facial and vagus nerves and helping the autonomic nervous system to regulate, improving concentration and social engagement.
Now more than ever, the world is a busy place filled with uncertainty. People of all ages, demographics and geographies are struggling. When faced with what the body perceives as threats or danger, it responds by re-tuning the nervous system into states of defence – either “fight or flight” (sympathetic) or “freeze” (dorsal vagal). The brain and body’s first priority is to keep us alive.
When the nervous system remains in a chronic state of defense, it affects both the mind and body – impacting how we feel, think, and connect with others.
This can adversely affect our health and day-to-day experience in the world. A proven solution is to look from the bottom up.
In addition to acute, repetitive, complex and developmental trauma, the Safe and Sound Protocol has been proven to help the following difficulties and challenges:
Social and emotional difficulties
Auditory processing difficulties
Anxiety and trauma related challenges
Stressors that impact social engagement
