Embodiment Coaching + Mentoring
There are times in life when objective support can be essential in our evolution – to better see clearly the things that matter most; to accept what is working well in life and what could be re-examined and refined; to understand what options are viable and which direction to take, and how to get ‘there’.
Maybe you are feeling challenged about knowing what to do in a moment when life has changed unexpectedly; maybe you are uncertain of who to turn to to help orient you personally or professionally in confusing and complicated times or to get over a feeling of ‘stuckness’. If this resonates with you, you’ve come to the right place.
I am an embodiment coach. You might be wondering what that means, embodiment, so let me try to explain that to you. Embodiment means being comfortable in your own skin, that what you do in the outside world mirrors how you feel on the inside. Being embodied means living your truth with awareness, acceptance and honesty.
I believe that everyone has the potential for positive transformation. My experience has led me to witness how clever our bodies and mind are, and that over time, we learn to manage ourselves to ‘get by’ in life; but those patterns we develop to ‘get by’ can be expensive and unsustainable – we carry stress, over work, under sleep, and become imbalanced in one way or another.
My work as a coach is focused on helping clients to fulfil life aspirations and working through the various obstacles along that path. Much in the same way that Rolfing works with the body, coaching has the goal of creating emotional purpose, efficiency and ease.
The coaching journey lasts about 6 months and can correspond with the journey of Rolfing and a yoga practice as a complementary supplement, or added to the Rolfing journey before, or after the bodywork component.
I also work as a mentor, which is different than embodiment coaching.
Mentoring sessions are for movement teachers, body workers and small to medium ‘wellness’ businesses who are looking for consultation and advice to evolve their craft or business offering.
This work is generally threefold:
1] in identifying and re-orienting where you are on your journey and in understanding /simplifying your offering;
2] in refining and supporting the evolution of your craft /service/product(s);
3] in strategizing a realistic development plan with a timelime and goals.
Whether you are interested in recieving mentoring or coaching sessions, the first step is to connect and have a conversation. The first session of 15-30 minutes is designed to meet each other, exchange some preliminary information and to see if we are aligned.
