The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP)

The Safe and Sound Protocol is a music listening therapy, which stimulates the vagus nerve and helps the nervous system to become more regulated and less stuck in a fight, flight or freeze response.

SSP has been shown, among other things, to reduce feelings of stress, support auditory sensitivity and help the person to be able to interact with other people more easily.

There are 5 playlists to choose from, so that the participant feels comfortable with the type of music they listen to.

The filtered music repatterns the tiny ear muscles and the nervous system to be more able to recognise and respond to signals of safety.

The connection with the facilitator is a vital part of this process and so apart from an initial session, lasting 45 – 60 minutes, a weekly check in is part of the process.  The SSP can be doen in-person or remotely, or as a hybrid version.
