Stephen Porges on the Link Between Feeling Safe and Making Change: PYP 340 Stephen Porges’ body of work has informed my coaching as much as anything else. My exploration and use of Polyvagal Theory to help clients shift undesirable behavior patterns feels like a superpower.

I wish more coaches – especially, but not limited to, health coaches – knew about his work, and understood how to apply it.

I hope this video is a step in that direction.
