The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)

The Safe and Sound Protocol has been created by Dr Stephen Porges.  It is a non-invasive therapeutic tool which works to calm the nervous system and stimulate the vagus nerve. The SSP is an evidence based tool and it helps to re-shape the neural pathways through stimulating the vagus nerve so the nervous system can move to safety.  It uses an inside out, bottom up approach to healing. It particularly helps people who shift into and get stuck in parasympathetic - "the freeze response."

 

The SSP is suitable for all ages, from children to adults. The SSP has shown to help individuals with trauma, anxiety and sensory processing differences and much more

 

Cost 

Free 40 minute initial consultation to see if the program is the right fit for you -  

 

$550 (includes GST) Flat Fee for entire program, including face to face or video call support, whilst using the SSP.

 

$100 (includes GST) per hour for additional support before or after SSP program.

Supporting Whanau and Tamariki with Integrated Education Plan (IEP) and/or a One Plan.

Do you have a child, or teen or young adult who is struggling with Selective Mutism at school or college ? Or perhaps you are a young student and you struggle to give class presentations and to socially engage in college / tertiary institutions  ?

 

Do you feel like the teachers are not listening to your needs or your child/teens needs? 

Would you like to get some more help from school, and / or other agencies who are involved in your child/ teens care?

Sometimes we need someone outside the whanau and qualified in their field to help us reach the support systems and educators in our / learners life.  

 

I help whanau and learners to understand what an IEP and One Plan is and how to request one from the school or place of learning.  

 

I can also help facilitate the conversation during an IEP or One plan at school. Through sharing my knowledge on Selective Mutism  an IEP or/and One Plan can be created with the leaner and their needs in mind, ensuring goals and plans are realistic and tailored for Selective Mutism.
