What is Somatic Coaching?

Somatic coaching is an innovative approach that integrates body-focused techniques, mindfulness, and coaching principles to facilitate personal growth and transformation. Somatics views the body, mind and emotions as inseparable. Unlike traditional coaching methods that primarily focus on cognitive processes and goal-setting, somatic coaching emphasizes the importance of bodily sensations, movements, and the felt sense as sources of valuable information and insights. 

Through somatic coaching we will explore how your body holds patterns, beliefs, and emotions, and how these can influence your thoughts, behaviors, and overall life experiences. Sometimes these emotions, belief systems, and patterns may be limiting your personal growth and getting in the way of what you really care about. Working together we can unwind these held patterns and beliefs in order to bring you more aliveness, wholeness and put you in touch with what matters most to you. 

I use a variety of techniques in somatic coaching, including,  breathwork, body awareness, physical practices, bodywork, and mindful exploration. All of these approaches are designed to help you access and understand the wisdom stored within your body. 

Through somatic coaching you will experience enhanced self-awareness and an increase in your overall holistic well-being. You will also experience deep, lasting personal transformation and change as you develop a heightened sense of self-awareness, release emotional blockages, transform limiting beliefs, and create new, empowering patterns. Somatic coaching is truly transformational and as a result of our work together you will experience greater alignment in your thoughts and actions, increased resilience and and a greater sense of well-being.
