The complete SSP programme comprises 3 possible pathways (SSP Connect, SSP Core, and SSP Balance) that are accessible through and facilitated by a qualified and certified SSP Provider. Auyantitude provides this programme both in-person in Belgium (Brussels in the Uccle – private practice and Ixelles – Centre Champaca) and also remotely via video conference. If remotely done, you will need a quiet and safe environment and time without distractions.
The 5-hours audio programme of the SSP Core (heavily processed and filtered music) is listened to in the established order and actively (paying attention to the music and its own body’s reactions). The music is heard through headphones while the client engages in a calm activity. All of this is facilitated via Unyte ILS digital application (via an Apple or Android mobile phone or tablet) and an external headset (earplugs are not allowed)
The SSP provider monitors the client’s response to the music by observing, asking, and answering questions during the whole process. From time to time the SSP provider may intervene if deemed necessary to propose breaks, engage the client in social interaction, or in body or breath gentle exercises.
Some of the changes during the SSP process may be noticeable immediately. However, most changes would occur between 3 months and 1 year as the individual is able to engage and relate in new ways with him/herself and the world.
SSP is NOT a STAND-ALONE therapy but combines perfectly with our therapeutical approach, especially for those who are body-centered such as Auyantitude‘s modalities: Somatic Experiencing (SE®), Tension, Stress & Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®) and Integrative Somatic Coaching. SSP can also be combined with more cognitive and behavioral psychotherapies. In all cases, SSP allows increasing their gains tremendously.
SSP is not a cure-all, but it can create physiological changes that are otherwise difficult to attain.
After a minimum 2-3 months of finishing SSP Core, you could get access to SSP Balance (same music but lightly processed) that you can use at your own pace in order to keep the gains and continue training your nervous system to calmness and emotional regulation.
