Welcome to episode nine of the Therapy Explained podcast. This week I’m exploring Somatic Experiencing with David Lillie, a somatic experiencing practitioner. As David explains, somatic experiencing has its roots in the observation of how animals in the wild process and recover from stress and trauma. We discuss what a typical session is like, who may not be suitable for somatic experiencing, out-of-body experiences and why somatic experiencing might be a better approach to treating trauma than EMDR.
