SNB:1 is created for two people:


1. the person starting on their trauma recovery or self-development journey.

2. the person fed up with their trauma recovery or self-development efforts.


SNB:1 is for the person curious about the Polyvagal Theory and ready to lay a strong foundation of self-compassion.

Is SNB:1 right for you?

Other trauma recovery and self-development books and programs are created with unrealistic expectations. They smash together various popular psychology trends and fads, hoping something sticks.

SNB:1 has a narrow focus, giving you a strong foundation on which to build. It rejects pop psychology, psychobabble, and woo-woo. It's built from the ground up on the neuroscience of the Polyvagal Theory. With SNB:1, you'll be well-prepared to continue your healing journey and unlock deeper levels of personal transformation.
