Being facilitated with SE, a person can identify and complete those incomplete responses which can reduce or eliminate the symptoms. For example, the flight response almost always gets set off when in an accident, our innate response to threat is to get away from it to survive. However, in a vehicle we are typically strapped in and can't actually do that, and the innate response still initiates. The initiation of the flight response sends a cascade of signals to our body to move, sometimes those signals get started and don't turn off, continuing to send signals to move, which can end up looking like restless leg syndrome as well as low back, hip and foot pain. There are many other examples in the book of possible symptoms that could be related to an accident you had days, months or many years before. These symptoms can be happening beneath our radar of awareness until something triggers them, often a similar event or a trigger that can't be identified when symptoms emerge.
I am happy to talk with you on the phone to see if I am a good fit for you to explore utilizing SE as part of your recovery. I highly recommend SE in the treatment of auto accidents as soon as possible after an accident. If you've had an accident in your past and are currently having symptoms I encourage you to explore this therapy as a possible solution to reduce your symptoms and suffering.
