Personal Programs and

Professional Trainings

When life serves us stress, we can volley back…

Whether it’s everyday demands, chronic and ongoing challenges, or the impact of traumatic stress that you are facing, you can begin to flow with the currents of life instead of against them.

Learn how to support your nervous system from the inside out.

Reconnect with your innate resilience and build greater capacity for life’s challenges.

Whether you are interested in self-care or you are a professional looking to support your clients and bolster their healing capacity, the Nervous System RESET personal programs and Professional Trainings will help you access the skills and awareness necessary to master your dance with stress.

Personal RESET (for the General Public):

The Personal RESET is 6-session program that spans 3 months of private and ongoing learning and mentorship under Jessica’s guidance.  Nervous system regulation and re-education work is delicate and takes time to cultivate.  Pacing things this way allows you to integrate the information and to learn the somatic skills gradually and apply them regularly over time.  The goal of this program is to support you in making lasting, self-care changes that will help transform your life.

All sessions are conducted via video conference so they can be arranged from the comfort of your home or office, whichever you prefer.  All you need is a strong internet signal and a laptop or tablet with a camera.  This also allows Jessica to work with clients from any geographical region.

The cost for this program is $365 which includes the 6 sessions as well as a guidebook that you download and work with between your sessions.  Clients find this guidebook to be a helpful tool  in integrating their learning.

The Personal RESET can also be offered in a group format that works well for organizations wanting to bring effective self-care strategies into their workplace.  The group format combines an initial, in-person workshop blended with weekly individual video conference sessions to create a deep, experiential process.

For more information on group offerings, please contact Jessica directly.

Content covered in the program:

  • Basic physiology of the stress response
  • The body’s natural protection and recovery responses
  • Cultivating and tracking internal safety
  • Signs and indicators of activation and calming cycles in your stress response
  • Orienting exercises and tracking body sensations
  • Regulation skills and approaches
  • Working with the restorative tremor as a regulation tool
  • An understanding of the social nervous system and the vagus nerve
  • Building an individually-calibrated approach to self-practice so that you are able to continue supporting your nervous system after the series is over

Nervous System Know-How for Practitioners and Clinicians: Introduction to Nervous System RESET

Nervous System Know-How for Practitioners is the introductory, pre-requisite pathway that prepares professionals interested in pursuing the Professional Training Program (see details below).  This pre-requisite track has beed designed as a fully online, distance learning format allowing easy access for professionals regardless of their geographical location.  This program provides a theoretical and experiential overview of the Nervous System RESET process and consists of the following components:

  • 6 private video sessions with Jessica where you will learn the somatic practices that form the foundation of the RESET approach
  • a 6-Module, self-paced online course of study that covers the foundational theory, physiology, and neuroscience of stress and trauma
  • a 2-hour group video session to review core concepts prior to the commencement of the Professional Training program

All participants will receive with an overview of the comprehensive neurophysiology of stress and trauma, as well as an understanding of how to begin to cultivate a neurophysiology of safety within the body.  Participants will also receive an assortment of practical somatic skills for quieting the nervous system and promoting resilience.  Because additional learning, skills, and training are needed before one is ready to deliver this transformative approach, participants will not be able to use the Nervous System RESET process directly with clients without first completing the full Professional Training Program (see details below).

What People Are Saying. . .

  • Working with Jessica has been such a tremendous gift. The Personal RESET program provides an educational framework and accessible tools for working with one’s body, rather than against it. In working with Jessica I found that I continued to come home to my body.

    This homecoming has allowed me to be with my experiences authentically, and be more present for others in my life. This experience has been invaluable for me personally, and incredibly supportive in my therapeutic work with clients. I highly recommend Jessica’s work to friends, colleagues and clients alike!

    Amanda Zucker LPC, Art Therapist
  • Due to life long struggle with anxiety, I developed a pretty antagonistic relationship with my body and nervous system. I saw it as this thing that got out of control. Like a monster lurking in the dark corners of my mind. Through my work with Jessica I coming to see that there is no monster. That my system is doing the best it can and that it does actually do a lot of work to soothe me and calm my down as well. This is a HUGE shift for me. She has provided with invaluable tools and insight that have allowed me to be gentler with myself and to open up my perspective to see all the things my system is doing right. I highly recommend anyone who struggles with trauma and/or anxiety to work with Jessica. She's has been a tremendous help.

    Jim H.
  • I am so grateful for Jessica and her ability to help me to down regulate my nervous system responses. I searched out someone who could intimately understand trauma responses and help me to identify what was happening to me on a physiological level and also had a systematic method to help override my heightened panic responses. I had already done a lot of work on myself and realized so much of my panic and anxiety was tied to old conditioned responses from challenging life experiences and realized I could not figure them out on my own.

    Lifelong anxiety had led to what seemed like endless panic attacks. I had become like a scared animal where even the smallest trigger would incite panic. I could still manage to cope in public but was finding it increasingly difficult to keep it together to have a “normal life”. So I searched for someone or a program that could help me help myself. I came across her on the internet. Jessica earned my trust with her incredible knowledge of the nervous system, her gentle yet firm guidance and her understanding. She encourages me to keep going. There were so many times that she walked me through my overwhelming confusion, fear and crippling self doubt to a place of calm peaceful insight. I had to do the work but she was there with her incredible summaries, validation and direction. The changes were subtle, but as I have come to realize, this is the language of the nervous system. Subtle, gentle consistent practice over time yields solid true foundational change at my core. I am now able to create more space between my triggers and my responses. I am more able to create that loving space within me and around me to allow my nervous system to heal. I learned that I am not broken and my nervous system was only doing its job. I am also becoming so much more capable of consciously controlling my fight, flight and freeze response. I am no longer having multiple panic attacks a day. I am able to cope much better when I do experience them every couple of weeks now. I have changed. Those subtle changes over time have accumulated into strong solid way of being now. I have been able to down regulate my nervous system to a calmer baseline. I still experience daily anxiety and trust that this process combined with Jessica’s guidance will help me slowly dissolve the anxiety as well. Life isn’t nearly so scary. That is such a gift. I am grateful to be alive now. I will continue to work with Jessica and learn from her to continue to help myself.
    Shannon S., Canada
  • I had a great experience working with Jessica and her RESET program. It helped me to develop skills for managing my daily ups and downs, and recognizing those as a normal and natural part of my body. Some of the tools have helped me to manage acute anxiety, while others have led me to develop a practice to help keep my anxiety more level on a daily basis. I'd definitely suggest folks check out this program.

    Angie Ebba
  • Jessica is truly gifted in her ability to connect, and convey a sense of safety and hope in the nervous system work she shares. My understanding of my own nervous system and my ability to reset has been invaluable. I believe everyone should have sessions with Jessica- the world would be a truly amazing place to live if this were the case. I can't recommend her work highly enough!

    Becky Blanco Mental Health Therapist, England
  • After 35 years of living in a fairly terrified body (& a relatively recent car accident that amplified that) I really needed to move beyond my ‘mind’ in order to find healing. I had searched a long time for something that could help me get unstuck from the effects of trauma. When Jessica and I started working together, I really had no practical concept of what it meant to work with my body.  The techniques I started practicing through the first few sessions had enough of an effect on my nervous system that I was seeing - and experiencing - what I had been missing for so long - the opportunity to feel more calm and safe, to interact with friends and family without being blocked by defensiveness or feeling in ‘fight’ mode, more energy and creativity to focus on my dreams and goals. Whilst I still very much consider myself to be on a journey of healing, the most profound gift has been the relationship and sense of trust I’ve built with my body. This has already seen me better managing terrifying situations (an earthquake, an anaesthetic reaction) with a sense that they have less of a lasting impact on me as my body regulates itself then and there. These are lifelong skills & so different to any ‘strategy’ I’ve learned before. I wholeheartedly believe that working with our nervous systems, and engaging with our bodies are foundational for healing - and this understanding will profoundly influence my own coaching practice going forward. Jessica is so kind and compassionate and has immense knowledge and expertise - I truly hope that people like me who feel they have tried everything to heal will find her.

    Vicki Evans Life Coach
  • Most of my life, my view of the world, my perception of myself, and my experience of inhabiting a body have been colored by what I call free-floating anxiety. And after more than 40 years as a health educator, I have a pretty big toolbox of skills, tools, and practices to deal with change, lower stress and anxiety, and better achieve wellness. But it was not until my recent work with Jessica Schaffer and her Nervous System RESET program that I made a quantum leap in my own sense of well-being by increasing my ability to self-regulate my anxiety levels.  Perhaps most notably, Jessica taught me practices to discharge much of my anxiety and reset my arousal level to one that is much more conducive to creativity, humor, kindness, and the enjoyment of life. I am so grateful to Jessica and her Nervous System RESET program for helping me smooth out my jagged internal landscape and make room to invite in peace. I highly recommend Jessica, her work, her expertise, her grasp of the science behind the skills she teaches, and her presence in the world, to anyone of any age wanting to experience higher level wellness and well-being.

    Suze Rutherford Health Educator
  • I honestly cannot imagine my own healing journey or that of my clients’ without Jessica’s work. Her presence as a healer and person is its own force, but then she has brought incredible clarity, brilliance, groundedness, and hope to working with the how our lives are lived in the body, whether it’s the trauma we are carrying, the ways we limit ourselves, or access to our own healing processes.   By emphasizing safety and self-regulation, she has created a system that empowers.  What I notice most as a practitioner in my clients who work with Jessica is much greater self-regulation while doing work in session, and the ability to stay regulated out of session.  This means many things -- not the least of which is a decreased need for me to work to regulate us both -- but especially the possibility of creating more space for deep process and lasting healing.  I cannot recommend her more highly, and I refer almost all of my clients to her work.

    Erin Moline, MA, LPC
  • I came to Jessica suffering the effects of a traumatic brain injury. Before RESET, my management strategies often led me to be overworked, undernourished and exhausted from trying to outrun the anxiety and discomfort I felt. The reality was, I was achieving success externally at the high cost of my internal wellbeing.  Working with Jessica, understanding my body, recognizing different states and how they affect me and finally learning to manage my experiences and responses by making peace with their reality and diffusing/disrupting the cycle I had imagined was my base state, has been life changing. The difference in knowing I can truly find peace within my body as opposed to the decades of trying to manage my ever changing environmental stressors has given me a awareness of personal confidence, resiliency and peace than I have ever known. I am happier, healthier and more in control of my internal experiences and external responses.

    Kate Blazer MSW, Clinical Social Worker at Alternative School
  • I must share my profound and life changing experience of the Nervous System Reset program which is so simple yet so powerful on so many levels!!!! To name some of shifts I have seen: I am more in tune with my nervous system. I am more aware of what triggers me. I know how to practice simple tools and awareness in the moment to down regulate my nervous system. My stress levels are staying at a healthier and more balanced state. My body feels like it is running more optimally. I have more space to enjoy and appreciate all of of life. My recommendation to each and every person is to schedule with Jessica for her 6- session program.   It is the best gift you could give yourself or anyone you love.
