What is the format of a Somatic Coaching session?
Sessions are conversational and include somatic resourcing and deepening one's felt sense. They generally take place on zoom or in person, seated in chairs or on cushions on the floor depending on the client's preference.
We begin with a somatic tracking exploration to see what is present for the client and let this information guide our session.
In a typical coaching session we may work on:
What you are passionate about, inspired by, or struggling with. We begin with where you are at.
We do this by:
Differentiating between body states, sensations, emotions, thoughts, and how the mind makes meaning
Exercising and increasing your tolerance for staying grounded in challenging situations
Providing support to help anchor your internal witness
Identifying goals and actions to support them (short term and long term)
Strengthening your sense of choice and agency in work and personal life
Supporting your connection to your body and to your internal and external resources
Accessing self compassion and compassion for others
Reducing fight, flight and freeze responses so that you can live in a steady rhythm of action and rest
Increasing your tracking skills in yourself and in relation to others
Support and practice integrating what we work on in sessions to what arises in your life
Throughout the session we identify tools that you can access in daily life.
Typically, in between sessions, there will be take home exercises to support the integration of the work we do together.

"These sessions have allowed me to completely reprogram myself in a way that had, before now, felt out of reach.
I had tried many other modalities that mostly just helped manage the myriad symptoms of abuse, neglect, and attachment trauma. This work is permanently transforming every layer of my being, my human relationships, and my relationship with life and Source!
It’s the work of freedom.” - K. M.
Somatic Coaching sessions are interactive and very effective at regulating the rhythms in the nervous system.
A well balanced nervous system creates a sense of groundedness, choice, and well being.
These sessions access the well of resource that the body has to offer, and apply this resource to real life situations and challenges that the client is facing.
Somatic Coaching sessions integrate Somatic Experiencing and Luminous Awareness work. Luminous Awareness work is an awareness practice that tracks subtle energy and supports the awakening of one's sense of their own innate wholeness.
