What is Coaching?

Coaching, as defined by the International Coach Federation, is a practice of partnering with you in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires you to maximize your personal and professional potential.  As your coach, I am your thought partner, a resource for you and someone to offer you accountability for your goals.

How is coaching different than therapy?

The Coaching process works with your capacity to create intentional change and growth in your life.  I follow the standards of practice and code of ethics of the International Coach Federation, and the International Somatic Movement Therapy Association.

Coaching does not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental or physical disorder and should not to be used as a substitute for professional advice by legal, medical, mental health, financial, business, spiritual, or other qualified professionals.  Coaching can be done in conjunction with other professional services if it is recommended by your primary care giver.

What is Holistic Life + Wellness Coaching?

Holistic Life and Wellness coaching integrates all aspects of your self into the coaching process- Mind, body and spirit.  In my coaching work, I focus on using somatic experience as a ground for self understanding. The word “somatic” is rooted in the word “Soma” which is Greek for “lived experience of the body in its wholeness.”  The field of Somatics refers to the study of the soma through personal explorations of perception, feeling, sensation, intuition, weight, movement, vibration, and sound as an integral part of the coaching process. movement.  Somatic practices acknowledge that the body contains inherent wisdom that can be accessed through sensation, feeling and movement whether it be through bodywork, guided movement explorations, imagery work, or meditation.

Somatic Coaching grounds the coaching process in your embodied experience of the present moment. Somatic coaching practices utilize exercises to connect your mind with the wisdom of your body, encouraging you to engage your whole self-all aspect of your self, mental, emotional, intuitive, kinetic, to discover new insights, and open new possibilities to create movement and growth in your life.

Are sessions in person or on the phone?

I offer two types of Private Coaching:

  1. Somatic Life + Wellness (E) Coaching is done over the phone and incorporates an online resource platform to stay connected between coaching sessions, set goals, and offer resources.  (E) coaching is a great fit for individuals that want to work on life and wellness goals on their own time and with the convenience of being able to coach from anywhere.
  2. Somatic Wellness + Movement Coaching is done in person at my Gyrotonic Fit Location in Atlanta GA.   This type of coaching is a great fit for clients that do best meeting in person and want to work on somatic wellness goals that are focused on kinesthetic awareness and movement.
Dynamics of the Coaching Relationship

The Coach’s Role- In our coaching sessions, I offer my presence in active listening and encourage you to listen to the wisdom of the whole of your body, mind and spirit. I will listen and contribute observations, opportunities to try different exercises and questions to stimulate your process. I will bring to our session my background and skills in somatics, movement, philosophy and spirituality, and holistic coaching to engage you in your process and move you towards your goals.

Your role- In each coaching session, you as the client choose the focus of conversation. You create the big picture goal for your coaching work as well as choose the focus of our specific sessions. Your job is to show up, have fun, be willing to try out different possibilities and use the support of our coaching relationship to transform any aspect of your life.

**Please not that the coaching relationship is meant to support you to achieve your goals. It is not a substitute for professional advise by legal, medical, mental health, financial, business, spiritual or other qualified professionals.

Coaching Tools

In our coaching, the assessment tools can serve as a starting point, but you will create the vision for your development and are ultimately the guide of your own process.  As you coach, I will offer you support and partner with you in your process in a variety of ways. I utilize Life Coach Office online platform that keeps all of your appointments and important documents in an online file, helps you create and track your goals, and connects them to your calendar. I also utilize an online coaching journal to track your progress and a classroom and library section that I can use to share tools and videos with you to support your process. These tools are available along side of our coaching sessions and can enhance the effectiveness of your coaching experience.

The Change Process

Change requires commitment. Full intentional commitment to your process will give you back the most from your coaching work. Change often happens gradually and sometimes in the following way according to James Prochaska in his book Changing for Good:

  • Pre-contemplation—change may not be recognized as needed
  • Contemplation—person is aware change is needed & begins to think about how to change
  • Preparation—plans are made to take action soon
  • Action—the change is initiated and is in process Maintenance—the change is maintained—sometimes with relapses Termination—the change is now on ongoing part of one’s life

Coaching usually begins in the contemplation process and can serves as a catalyst and support structure through the change process.
