Safe and Sound Protocol Coach Amy Hadden Kids Teens Adults (1)
Stress physiology may affect:
  • how we feel, think, learn and connect
  • response to our sensory environment
  • ability to slow down and create work-life balance
  • relationships with food, others and ourselves
  • energy levels, sleep quality and access to creativity
  • decision-making, communication, goal-setting, follow-through and more
The Safe and Sound Protocol is an evidence-based tool designed to reset the nervous system. Specially filtered music stimulates the vagus nerve.

Suitable for children and adults, the SSP has demonstrated benefits for individuals with chronic and traumatic stress, anxiety, sensory processing differences, chronic pain, ADHD and other challenges.

Amy Hadden, NBCHWC, Safe and Sound Protocol, Somatic Coach

Hi there! 

I help adults, teens and kids regulate their stress response more consistently and independently so they can feel, think and connect better.

As a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), I help clients use their strengths and address stress and create wellness.

I’m certified in Dr. Stephen Porges’ Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP). Adults, teens and children can find positive shifts in their stress levels with SSP. For some this translates to positive effects on pain, attention, environmental sensitivities or overall sense of stress. For others, it might look like greater ability to handle transitions in a classroom, a gentler relationship with food or more pronounced gains from other support modalities. 


I support clients in two ways. First, with coaching I help clients work with their stress response instead of against it. From here, they have greater capacity to reach health and wellness goals of all types.

Second, as a Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) Practitioner, I help clients get to know and shape their stress response. Clients listen to a music-based app to help calm a fight-flight response. SSP is combined with somatic support and nervous system education.


Your response to stress lays the foundation for health, behavior and emotional regulation.
