Welcome to the Anxiety Relief and Nervous System Resilience Online Course
with Shannon Dikkema

Introduction to Anxiety Relief Online Course.

This course is designed to teach you about your own nervous system and how we view anxiety through a Somatic Therapy lens. Utilizing the information I have learned from many different sources, we will learn to understand our nervous system through a Polyvagal perspective. Each module is full of tools, practices and information designed to empower you to:

  • accurately self reflect
  • shift neural pathways of anxiety to pathways of regulation and calm
  • feel safer in your body
  • have more choices about your nervous system state
  • understand the complexities of being humans more fully and embody more self-compassion and kindness
  • feel calm and regulated more of the time.


Each section is broken down into a 20-40 minute video module and is accompanied by a pdf document of the notes regarding each topic.
