Safe and Sound Protocol

For anxiety, trauma, AD(H)D, ASD and more…

Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is a non-invasive listening therapy to aid in emotional regulation. Developed by Stephen Porges whose polyvagal theory has radically shifted how we think about trauma and anxiety, SSP is an evidence based therapeutic tool designed to re-set the nervous system and return it to feeling safe.

Designed to work with other therapeutic approaches and modalities, the SSP involves listening to specially filtered music through over-ear headphones. The music gradually exposes the auditory system to different sound frequencies and trains the auditory pathways to focus on the frequency band of the human voice. It stimulates the middle ear muscles which help the autonomic nervous system regulate thus improving concentration and social engagement.

Access SSP Face-to-face or via the App

Suitable for adults and children, the SSP has demonstrated via research that it has benefits for individuals with trauma, anxiety, AD(H)D, ASD, sensory processing differences and much more.

The programme can be accessed via in-person sessions or making use of a smartphone app depending on the individual’s needs.
