mindful somatic coaching

what is mindful somatic coaching?

Typical coaching focuses on the left brain. MINDFULNESS SOMATIC coaching work is right-brain focused, using the limbic system and the power of neuroscience to help unlock the emotional brain that’s holding you back.

You might be aware of the problem and what you need to do to change, but feel like you can’t sustainably change it. There’s a reason for that – the neural synapses haven’t been rewired: you’re just papering over an existing pattern with an interrupted new one.

With somatic work, the bottom-up approach gives you a new emotional learning – you have a new experience, imaginally, that enables you to:

  • Know what actually happened, and
  • Be able to relate and respond to the situation differently.

It’s less effortful and more long-term transformative.

how is coaching different than psychotherapy or counseling?

As your coach, I work with you where you’re at in the present moment. Unlike medical professionals and psychotherapists/ psychoanalysts, I do not diagnose illnesses or prescribe medications. The coaching work we do may be life-enhancing and transformational, but I do not view clients through a lens of pathology or unresolved psychological issues. My lens is one of basic goodness and inner wholeness. In our work together, we may use mindfulness somatic techniques to address nervous system dysregulation to enable the body to feel less stress and more balance. As a coach, we focus on your life as whole person today, facilitating a process that may open doors to a brighter tomorrow. At times, my clients have private psychotherapists and they find the coaching work we do together can help support them further.

what is your payment policy?

Payment is requested via any major credit card at the time the session is booked, and is due no later than 24 hours prior to the session. Will reschedule session that same week only, if time is available.

where are you located? do you see clients outside of nY?

Embrace Your Heart, Inc. is a virtual hybrid practice; sessions take place online via google, Zoom or phone.

I see clients all over the United States and the world.

how long does coaching usually last?

For coaching, everyone’s needs are different; there is no magic duration or frequency of sessions. I typically see individuals bi-weekly. We will know when it feels like the right time to tier down to less frequent sessions or to pause, but usually our work together is from a minimum of 6 months to a year, no longer than a year.

what is your cancellation policy?

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy without being charged. Payment is requested at the time our session is booked, due within 24 hours of session time. Cancellation or rescheduling occurring less than 24 hours before the scheduled Services will result in a charge of 50% of the value of the scheduled Services.
