What is coaching?
Coaching is partnership between the Coach and the Client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize personal and professional potential. It is designed to facilitate the creation of personal, professional or business goals, and to develop and carry out a plan for achieving those goals.
In this partnership, we will also engage in Somatic practices in service to client’s vision and goals. Through client’s consistent embodied exploration and practice we aim to create more choice, more well-being and the ability to take more powerful action in the things that matter to you.

What is Somatics?
We all have wisdom in our bodies. When we seek to create change in our lives, many modalities focus solely on the mind or the wisdom in our heads. Somatics is a methodology that empowers us to harness the wisdom of the body to create lasting desired change.
When we leave the wisdom of the body out of the equation, change and transformation often doesn’t last. We can conceptualize how we want our lives to be different and even understand and imagine the concept, but until we include our psycho-biology (our body) in the process of change, our desires will remain an "idea" we’re working to make happen rather than be; The learning is “understood” but it is not embodied.
Somatics is embodied learning that supports lasting transformation. We define transformation as the ability to take new actions, aligned with your vision and your values, even under the same old pressures. In other words, through Somatics we align with our whole self, unlock our aliveness, to fully embody a life we love.
WHAT MIGHT A COACHING SESSION ENTAIL?
In a Somatic Coaching session, we will spend some of the time talking where we explore and define the focus for the session. We will also often include Somatic Practices during our sessions. We do these practices on our feet. They are a way we can explore more deeply the communication the body is offering. This information is a way to discover what impulses are informing your actions on a subconscious level; the body is often driving our behavior long before our thinking mind comes into the conversation. As we work more deeply with the communication of the body, we gain insight around what is getting in the way of you achieving what you desire.
Somatic Bodywork is another modality we may use in our sessions. This work happens in a reclined position, clothing remains on (unlike a massage). Somatic Bodywork is an effective way to “unlock” stuck energy in the body in order for the energy to move and release. This release creates more freedom for aliveness to move throughout the body and with it comes a greater capacity for insight and choice in life.
Who do you need to become in order to live a life you long for?
If you find it challenging to get into and stay in powerful action toward what you care about, or find yourself taking action but not achieving the results you desire, coaching will help you learn to take new actions – ones they weren’t previously able to take, that are aligned with what matters to you.
