UDS is not for everyone

UDS is made for the stuck individual that has learned the Polyvagal Theory and developed some capacity to stay grounded in their safety state. UDS is for the person that needs the next step - how to use their capacity for curiosity and mindfulness to feel into and relieve their trauma.

Not sure if UDS is right for you?

Just schedule a chat with me and we can talk more about it. No sales pitches, no pressure, just clarity on your questions.

Unstuck is possible.

After taking UDS, you will be able to actively and purposefully feel your stuck defensive state with curiosity. You will mindfully experience your inner world from your safety state, not a bystander going through the extremes of dysregulation.

UDS is not...

  • a repackaged webinar. UDS is an online course built on the Polyvagal Theory from the ground up.

  • the starting point for trauma recovery. UDS is the third phase of my Polyvagal Trauma Recovery System.

UDS is...

  • the next step after learning the Polyvagal Theory and building the strength of your safety state.

  • made for the person in trauma recovery, not professionals looking to build their skills (although they are welcome to be a part of UDS as well!).

Focus on your stuckness

UDS is about you. The real you that exists right here and right now. UDS does not use up any time or mental energy on abstract psychological ideas like “parts” or “shadows” or “ego”. UDS makes self-regulation practical and simple, built on the science and application of the Polyvagal Theory.

"I am a Christian counselor working with trauma and especially sexual abuse. I have been for 16 years now, and am also [a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner], so this stuff makes sense to me... [UDS] is excellent stuff!"

You're worried.

Will UDS actually help?

I know you might be thinking that this is too good to believe. You might be worried about whether UDS is truly going to help. UDS is a self-regulation practice built on the effective teachings and techniques I already use with my Clients and for myself.

Is UDS worth the cost?

Hell yes it is.

  1. You'll get access to meet with me and others in virtual meetups twice a month and in the private community for course students. You will never be alone in your recovery and will have direct access to me often. 

  2. UDS has a 14 day money-back guarantee (more below).

  3. You can schedule a no-pressure no-sales chat with me for free and I am happy to answer any concerns or questions you have about UDS.

"The pacing, the examples, and how you made it so the listener could use it right then and there. You also gave practical examples of pendulation and titration, and helped explain mixed states better through the illustrations, examples, and the way you use words to help people track their own states. EXCELLENT! REALLY!... THANK YOU!!!"
