Somatic Experiencing Practitioner
Brian D. Mahan, SEP, was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in 2003. He suffered daily from 7 to 10 full-blown panic attacks, following a catastrophic automobile accident. After just a few sessions with a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), he was completely symptom free. He immediately contacted The Somatic Experiencing Training Institute and committed to study the lifework of Dr. Peter A. Levine.
For the next three years, Brian studied the physiology of stress and trauma and continued to receive personal sessions. He quickly discovered that healing trauma of one event had a global effect on other events, as well. In essence, he set out to resolve panic attacks as a result of a car wreck and, simultaneously, found relief and broke free from habituated lifelong patterns that were related to developmental traumas.
Brian now helps other trauma survivors who struggle at times with Stress, Anxiety, Panic Attacks and PTSD. He specializes in working with both developmental traumas (birth traumas, abuse and neglect, attachment/detachment issues, etc.) and shock traumas (divorce, loss, falls, car wrecks, medical procedures, acts of violence, rape, torture, near death experiences, etc.).
His studies on healing shame with Bret Lyon and Sheila Rubin have informed his practice beyond measure. He is thrilled to now be assisting Bret and Sheila in their ground-breaking trainings.
Brian is an educator, author and practitioner in private practice. He is a guest lecturer, an assistant trainer for Abi Blakeslee and Maggie Kline, Senior Faculty Member at The Somatic Experiencing Training Institute. He also holds retreats and seminars, focused on re-establishing a sense of safety and re-awakening embodiment through healing stress and trauma.
Brian offers sessions both face-to-face for local clients and by Phone, FaceTime, Google Hangouts and SKYPE for clients nationwide and internationally.
