Is this you?
You're busy, constantly juggling competing demands.
The thought of letting anything go seems impossible. It weighs you down.
You put self-care last.
You learned that working hard is how to succeed in life, and now find that this approach leads to physical, mental and emotional burnout.
You feel overwhelmed, irritable, restless or uneasy. The bad feelings eek out and impact your kids, partner and others, and it’s out of your control.
Your body holds tension that feels bad.
You have chronic symptoms: pain, depression, anxiety or other ongoing discomforts.
You feel stuck and don't know how to do life differently.
You’ve come to the right place.
As a mind-body coach I facilitate awareness of the mind-body connection—how mind effects body and vice versa— to help you discover relief, ease and clarity. Symptoms can include just about any type of physical, emotional or mental discomfort you can think of: chronic pain, overwhelm, excessive worry, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and so on. Rather than simply trying to manage or mask the symptoms by taking medication or by some other means, the mind-body approach involves healing the root cause of the issues by helping you to discover your unique mind-body conditioning that has been learned and practiced repeatedly over the course of your life, so much so that it has become automatic and outside of your awareness.
Your conditioning includes the habitual ways you think and feel. Through the process of coaching, you become more conscious of automatic habits that don't support what you want in life. You learn and practice simple mind and body awareness techniques to support you to undo old habits and create new ones that are more aligned with your life and health goals.
How will mind-body coaching help me?
Noticing is the first step towards change, and cultivating this skill affords you the ability to know what is best for you at every step along the way.
You will become aware of the dynamic interplay of thoughts, emotions and physical sensations that keep you stuck in habitual patterns of behavior.
You will learn how to interpret your body's signals. Your body sends you clear and distinct messages in the form of physical sensations that tell you how you are doing. You will begin to notice and trust your body's YES and NO signals. The body never lies.
You will also become aware of deeply held beliefs that may not be true and that are limiting your world view. You will become adept at noticing the habits of your own mind and gaining clarity in how they support or hinder your daily life experiences.
Lastly, you will recognize and allow the expression and release of suppressed emotions and free up your creative energy flow.
By practicing simple mind-body methods you will experience greater ease, freedom and relief in body and mind, and simultaneously will more easily recognize and abide by your moment-by-moment inner leadings by taking tiny steps in the life direction they reveal to you. In this way, you will move towards a way of being that is more aligned with what you want. Consciously move towards your wants, dreams, and goals with clarity and ease.
