Daniel Vose, MA, SEP

Somatic Attachment Trainer, Certified Life Coach, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner



If you are curious about working together email me at voseconsulting@gmail.com with a little bit about yourself and what you are wanting from our work together. 

When people are in their last moments of life, what’s important becomes clear. What will you think about? 

Quantitative studies have shown that during the last moments of life people don’t think about their material possessions or other more superficial preoccupations, rather they think about the quality of their relationships and ways they could have deepened them. It is too easy to put off growth, day after day, until there is no more time. The best time to act is now!

What is the most important investment in your life?

In the somatic process you will get a road map for your nervous system’s functioning, how it has been deeply shaping your daily life in unconscious ways, and you will learn what to do about it. The transformational process works by first setting the initial conditions that expand your capacity (the setting you up for success phase), and then allows you to rewire your nervous system so you can thrive.

Therapy focuses on insight and can be limiting in building a thriving life. Insight can feel good but it does not equal change. The somatic and attachment systems has been scientifically shown to work on deeper levels of the brain. What that means for you is a more efficient process that has more lasting change.

There are a designated number of reduced rate spots for therapists and students in trainings Daniel presents or assists at.  If finances are a major obstacle you can still benefit from sessions less often. Most of Daniel’s clients are therapists or other healthcare providers, who have done their work and are now looking to move beyond therapy and focus on thriving in there life.

Panel 1

What is Somatic Experiencing?

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is an evidence based approach of facilitating nervous system health that was originally developed in the 1970s.  It is an integration of multidisciplinary studies of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, medical biophysics with over forty five years of successful application.SE works by helping the nervous system find a regulated way of functioning. 

The SE approach facilitates the completion of self-protective motor responses and the release of thwarted survival energy bound in the body. This is approached by gently guiding clients to develop increasing tolerance for difficult bodily sensations and suppressed emotions.

Attachment DARe

What if there was a science to relationships? Well as it turns out there is!

There are specific strategies we use to adapt to less then optimal situations in our relational development. Those strategies often end up holding us back in our adult life. The good news is that you can re-pattern your attachment system and discover healthy relationships.

The social nervous system (pictured on the right in blue) needs to receive the right experiential cues to reprogram the attachment system. Diane Poole Heller developed a highly effective method for working with the attachment system which she calls the Dynamic Attachment Re-patterning Experience or DARe for short.

Daniel teaches Diane’s DARe, Somatic Attachment work. He is a total attachment and neuroscience geek who also studies the work of various other attachment experts. The most well known among them are authors Allan Schore and David Wallin.
