Renowned researcher, Dr Stephen Porges, developed Polyvagal Theory which is also referred to as the “science of feeling safe”. This key scientific finding focuses on the body and nervous system and how your child’s sense of safety, or perceived threats, can impact on their behaviour.
The understanding of this theory gives us a scientific framework that can be applied through physiological, or “bottom-up” therapies, to help change and improve how your child feels, thinks and connects with others.
