What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

Most coaches approach working with clients as a conversation you’d have in everyday life. I approach my sessions with clients as creating an experience. With a unique combination of mindfulness and somatics (body awareness techniques), I help clients become deeply present. From this deepened state of awareness, I guide them to explore and study their inner worlds, so we can identify what’s holding them back and create new possibilities together. The result is gentle yet powerful shifts in the foundation of my clients’ sense of self—they’re often able to make deeper, more lasting changes than with a cognitive-only coaching approach.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

I’ve been in my clients’ shoes—working in high-stress environments, feeling torn between pursuing career success and building a meaningful, purpose-driven life. Having been there myself, my presence, deep compassion and strategic mindset coupled with over 20 years of doing deep inner somatic work is what enables me to successfully guide my clients toward creating a life that’s authentic to them: a life they truly want.

My approach is a mixture of several modalities that I have found effective in improving physical and mental health. The main influence in my work is Somatic Experiencing (SE). SE is a body-focused approach to building resilience and resolving trauma. It suggests that our mental and physical well-being are profoundly interlinked through our autonomic nervous system (ANS). Our ANS regulates all basic and instinctive functions of our body and is the source of our survival responses.

I believe that when we have a deeper understanding of ourselves and our worth, competition and comparison is no longer cause for concern. When we are in better alignment with our truth, we feel the freedom and permission to do what we want vs. what we feel like we’re supposed to do.

This is an alternative to conventional therapy which puts the therapist in the driver’s seat rather than you. But it’s your life. With somatic grief coaching you are in the driver’s seat. Your issues are in your tissues. Somatic Grief Coaching allows you to release the emotional pain at the cellular level. And, you get to learn how to do this for yourself in record time. At Your Life Matters, the gift of grief is a foundational assumption: life is too short to rehash the past over and over again.

Clients describe her incredibly gentle, yet concrete, and no-nonsense approach as a perfect formula for their growth and transformation.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

Traditional coaching mostly involves intellectual processes, like mindset work and action plans. But they don’t go much deeper than that and clients often find themselves back in the same old patterns.

A lasting change needs to happen also at the level of our bodies as this is where our most deeply engrained habits and interpretations of the world are rooted.

My somatic coaching approach involves a unique blend of traditional cognitive coaching methods, but it takes this step further and includes also the body-centered techniques to create a highly tailored and safe space for a deep and meaningful change.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

Despite extensive training I’ve done with some of the best somatic experts and coaching schools, my number one teacher is my own life experience.

I learned the hard way what works and what doesn’t to heal unhelpful emotional patterns and move forward in life.

Through this process I developed my ability to make my clients feel safe, seen, and fully supported as they engage with their inner world. I can quickly identify their blocks and guide them all the way to the root of what’s not serving them.
