Dr Cat was a pioneer in 2019 by creating the first top-down + bottom up program: brain retraining; somatics; polyvagal theory/vagal toning; breathwork (2019 Creating Calm® and the 2020 Primal Trust™ Mentorship).
She carefully studied the effects of this combination over the last 3 years to create a new and even more comprehensive, integrative healing model – Regulate™. The other leading programs, such as DNRS and others, whilst excellent in their own way, are primarily top-down brain retraining programs. Dr. Cat saw this as a blind spot to not have a somatic component and trauma processing to the standard neuroplasticity methodology. Her background as a mind-body physical therapist taught her that healing needs to occur on a body level, not just the brain, for full resolution. In Regulate™ you are basically getting multiple programs in one – brain retraining, somatic healing, vagus nerve toning, trauma processing, and more. This is a huge savings in cost alone if you were to go through each of these modalities separately.
Primal Trust Regulate™ is also developed and implemented much differently than other programs. Dr. Cat has based her process on the foundational principles of the polyvagal theory and the program is taught through a trauma-informed lens. In fact, trauma processing is part of the program as well, as chronic illness recovery involves attending to our inner wounding as well as our brain and vagus nerve function.
Lastly, Dr. Cat also has spent the last 2 years taking over 1,500 people through her Level 2 Advanced Mentorship and has uncovered what is at THE ROOT of nervous system dysfunction and chronic illness. Her programs now carefully walk people through the process of attending to the root cause, which you will learn in the Regulate™ program.
In other words, her program is not just a toolkit to rewire the brain. Regulate™ is a multifaceted algorithm, weaving together many approaches into one to attend to the root cause. You will come out of the program a master of self regulation and will have demystified the cause of your chronic conditions.
One final bonus that greatly sets Regulate™ apart from any leading program out there currently: Most programs charge large additional program fees for “VIP” access to the creators of the program in the form of live group Q&As. Dr. Cat is personally involved every step of the way at no additional cost. You will have access to her in live group calls, as well as her other lead mentors. There are no hidden costs to have the live coaching help, study groups and more. It’s a simple monthly membership. And if it took you 1 year to get through, you would still save a whole lot of money compared to taking other programs offering live coaching/ VIP help.
