Soothe


ABOUT SOOTHE: The three systems of emotional regulation govern a large part of our lives through the release of various hormones. The Threat System deals with danger through adrenaline– prolonged threat exposure shutting down the reasoning centre of the brain and non-essential organ function with Cortisol. Our Drive System motivates us to achieve, releasing Dopamine as a reward– lack of reward causing stress, excess of reward leading to addiction. The Soothe System helps us recover from the first two, promoting bonding, meaningful connections, nurturing and restoration through the hormone Oxytocin.
