ENHANCE YOUR THERAPY EXPERIENCE WITH
(DIGITAL) SAFE & SOUND PROTOCOL (SSP):
A PORTAL TO SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT™
Safe and Sound Protocol™ is a passive pathway intervention that boosts or accelerates the effectiveness of other active pathway therapies, including psychotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and physical therapy.
Developed by Dr. Stephen Porges and based on the Polyvagal Theory, the Safe and Sound Protocol™ (SSP) is a five-day, one-hour per day auditory intervention designed to reduce stress and auditory sensitivity while enhancing social engagement and resilience. The intervention uses prosodic vocal music that has been filtered to train the middle ear muscles to focus in on the frequency envelop of human speech. Once human speech is properly perceived, the portal to social engagement has been opened. SSP assists in calming the physiological and emotional state which leads to improved communication and more successful therapy.
The SSP is a research-based therapy showing significant results in just five days in the following areas:
Social and emotional difficulties
Including Hyperacusis and Misophonia
Anxiety and trauma related challenges
Including sleep difficulties, gut problems (IBS), Hypertension, Chronic pain, Vasovagal Syncope, "Self-medicating", emotional dysregulation
Stressors that impact social engagement
Safe and Sound Protocol™ Digital Interventions are administered at home on Android and iOS devices. You will need over-the-ear headphones for the best results.
$250.00 - Per Five-Day Digital Intervention for Non-Established Clients
$100.00 - Per Five-Day Digital Intervention for Established Clients
People who belong to the global majority (BIPOC) will receive a discount on 'booster' digital interventions.
