Somatic Experiencing Intro Session


60 per hour - Virtual OK - Posted Oct 17, 2016

In a 60-minute session, we will have a comfortable conversation about life: What you enjoy, what your challenges are, and what would make life greater for you. In the course of this conversation, I will help you slow down, taking the time to notice the really potent 'good' feelings that are hidden within the everyday experience. I will also help you develop your ability to access your strength and decisiveness by taking the time to notice those feelings within you as they arise.

If you have any other specific wishes for yourself and your life, we can often find ways to work those goals into our session, using my training in Nonviolent Communication and Neurolinguistic Programming.

I call this an introductory session because Somatic Experiencing can be most life-changing when done in a series of 8+ sessions: It can transform your nervous system's way of handling stress, letting you be stronger and more decisive when needed, or softer and more loving when the time is right.

Unfortunately, my schedule is such that I do want to charge real life $$$ for the longer series of sessions. But I'm happy to do a single session for trade, make the most impact we can in that time, and answer any further questions you have.

Training & Qualifications

I've been doing SE for 4 years; and I've recently completed the 3 year training offered by Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute.

I have nearly 10 years of experience using Nonviolent Communication and Neurolinguistic Programming to help people get what they want out of life.

Availability & Preferences

On and off throughout the week- in the office Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Before I felt frantic and scattered, always trying to optimize things and force fit them to my frameworks. Then I had a session with Aaron. Now, I n...otice I move deliberately from a background of embodied cognition. My self awareness comes coupled with self compassion. And I am more easefully available as a container to receive others fully in my listening of them. I feel closer with my family, my close relationships, and my team when I slow down and move more intentionally. Thanks Aaron. You really spoke to my hyper rational mind as well as my nervous system simultaneously. That can be challenging to do effectively. show more

Aaron was warm, friendly, and professional. He checked in regularly to make sure I was comfortable. Somatic Experiencing is a healing modality with po...tential to change long-standing patterns and create new, positive ruts in the brain. I highly recommend him! show more

About Aaron Kapin

Well, the fastest way to get to know me professionally is to look at my website: But if you want to know about me personally, I'll say a bit here: I've been a private practice, doing mostly massage, for over 8 years. Throughout those years I have constantly done trades with everyone from other massage therapists, to dance teachers, beekeepers and dentists. These days I'm most excited about the Somatic Experiencing work that I do, and so I'm amped to be using Simbi to meet people, share my work, and continue the barter momentum. I'm an out-of-the-box thinker who loves helping people get empowered, find clarity, and create happiness. I'm gentle yet strong, silly but grounded, ambitious yet relaxed, and I'm excited to hear from you. All my best, Aaronshow more
