Submitting cases and questions

You are welcome to submit a case or question you’d like SE perspective on. Please email those to info@abiblakeslee.comno later than the Thursday prior to the consult.

Emails received after that deadline will not be addressed during the consult.

If you are presenting a case please include the following information in your email:
1. What is you professional background?
2. What is the presenting problem and the basic client demographics and
3. What SE have you tried so far?

General SE questions are also welcomed and encouraged.

Abi will look over and consolidate the information in the emails into general themes and then address more specific questions. Your case may be chosen out of the many that are received. We highly encourage those who have attended 3 case consults to present at least one time. If you have attended 2 case consults in a row and have not been chosen to present, please let us know.

NOTE: Due to the high volume of interest we will not be able to cover every case or question. However, Abi will choose several relevant cases each consultation and answer many of the general themes that come up from the group input.

We look forward to your participation and presence.

After your purchase

You will receive the details for accessing the group consultation you are registered for via email the Friday before that specific consultation.

If you do not receive it first check your spam/junk folder. If it is not there, please email or complete the contact form on the website.

Should you not receive the log-in details, it is your responsibility to let us know via email no later than the day before the consultation.

Due to the detail-oriented nature of managing an online class with so many individual participants, we are not able to assist with issues at the last moment. Additionally, handling your setup ahead of time helps us all to be calm and grounded for the group session. We appreciate your respecting this boundary.

Cancellation Policy

Due to the complexity of organizing multiple participants, you will not be able to cancel or transfer to another session once you have paid.

However, you are welcome to transfer your place to another colleague in the training that you know. This will be your responsibility to coordinate and they can reimburse you.

If you arrange a transfer, please email the group coordinator at info [at] abiblakeslee [dot] com to with the date of the consultation affected and the name and email address of the individual who will be attending. The coordinator will then send the consultation details to the new attendee.

Signing session logs

Each group consultation counts as one credit hour of case consultation with an Institute faculty member towards your SEP certificate requirements. Following your group consultation, you will receive a follow-up email confirming your attendance. You will receive this email up to one week after the consultation.

This email can be submitted to SETI with your other log sheet requirements for completion of the Somatic Experiencing Practitioner criteria.

“As a bodyworker, I really appreciate how useful Abi’s input and feedback is. I come away from her consultations with new insights and clear, practical strategies to help me be more effective with my clients.”

— Lisa Gillispie, SEP, CST

What to expect

SE Consultation is a necessary and enriching aspect of your SE training.  It will allow time for you to ask personalized questions as well as help you integrate SE work into your specific practice.

I am always willing to explore topics that would be most supportive of your learning.  For example, you may have general conceptual questions about the SE curriculum and how it appears in your practice, want to present an individual case, or discuss issues related to somatic resonance and somatic countertransference that would be useful to explore.

You will be asked to share a brief (and confidential) description of your client and his, her, or their background (around 5-10 minutes depending on the complexity of their history and presentation). If you have been through the intermediate training think about what “categories” of trauma they might fit into.

Also, let me know what SE interventions you have tried and what the outcome was. I may ask you to share what kinds of bodily sensations or other elements of SIBAM you have been tracking while working with them.

Some question we might explore together:

  • What kinds of bodily sensations or other elements of SIBAM you have been tracking?
  • At baseline where is your client’s nervous system?
  • Are they regulated, sympathetically charged, or shut down?
  • Do they exhibit fight, fight, and freeze in their bodies?
  • How do they describe their physiological state?
  • How do you perceive their physiological states in their bodies?
  • Have you been able to facilitate pendulation?
  • How have you used SE with them successfully?
  • Where and how do they continue to be dysregulated?


I would like to co-create goals with you.  For example, some goals that many SE students have are: creating a better clinical gestalt of SE, learning how to apply general SE concepts to specific cases, and the movement toward the “art” of the work that seamlessly begins to blend with your professional field.


If you are considering therapy or simply have questions about whether or not therapy might be useful to you, I invite you to contact me for a brief consultation.

This will be the first step to your healing journey and I am excited for you.
