What is SRT?

Self-Regulation Training (SRT),is an efficient, practical and naturalistic way of healing the effects of stress and trauma. It is a simplified and gentle version of Somatic Experiencing, and has been created by Dr. Reggie Melrose, experienced psychologist and trauma expert.  SRT helps “renegotiate” patterns of arousal and anxiety by carefully supporting the body’s natural ability to release over-activation. By combining and interweaving elements of stress and trauma with strengths and resources, a new, complete and more empowering experience is created, thus creating new, more powerful neural pathways in the brain. This is when clients begin to notice a new and greater repertoire of emotional and behavioral choices. They move from being stuck in rage, helplessness, and anxiety to a fluid experience of empowerment, peace, and resiliency thereby strengthening and building resistance to future stress and trauma.(Dr. Reggie Melrose, 2018).

Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, a leading medical doctor, scientific researcher, and teacher at Harvard Medical Center stated that the effects of stress and trauma rob people of their capacity to “be here.”  He explains that the first goal of healing stress (or trauma) is to move through physical experience and gain the mastery.  Therapy work with stress and trauma needs to include helping people to be in their bodies and to understand their bodily sensations. (Dr. Reggie Melrose, 2018).  

Somatic work can be helpful for stress, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma of any kind, including surgeries, sexual abuse, molestation, accidents, bullying, marital challenges, and more.  It is also helpful for those who feel violated and have no recollection of why this is so.  Somatic healing invigorates people on their own journey towards health and a wholesomeness, in a secure and gentle manner.
