Our worlds can be turned upside down in a blink of an eye through relationship breakdowns, job loss, new motherhood, bereavement and more. My own emotional earthquake came when my father died unexpectedly. He was the biggest source of comfort in my difficult childhood and losing him left a gaping hole in my life.
I struggled to make sense of who I was. Through trial and error, I discovered a combination of psychotherapeutic-inspired coaching techniques that helped me to reconnect with myself. A large part of the work involved peeling away layers of masks that I’d unknowingly built up over the years as a coping mechanism.
As I did this I was able to learn that the methods of self-protection I’d used to survive old childhood wounds were no longer serving me. Instead, they were preventing me from living my life to the fullest.
Through continued exploration, I was able to rediscover and heal the person I was and reconnect with what I wanted from life. With that came great healing, a firmer purpose and more joy. Soon after Ambient Healing was born.
My coaching business exists to support you in making sense of where you are in life and how you can get started on creating a future that you long for. Guiding you to find healing, empowerment and meaning in your lives is at the heart of what I do.
I do this through impactful in-person and online one-to-one therapeutic coaching, women’s circles and reiki healing. My coaching sessions give you the opportunity to break free of the conditioning that you’ve absorbed over the years. They give you the chance to gain greater mastery over your life direction and allow you to live more authentically.
My training and explorations opened my eyes to the true role of a therapist. They showed me wounds that I didn’t know existed within me and they healed me in a way I never imagined was possible.
These experiences influence the way that I work with my clients. They motivate me to be nothing but authentic and fully present for you. As your coach, I commit to listening, supporting and guiding you through your healing journey. I aim to offer a safe container to hold you throughout our work together.
I will sit with you and bear witness to your vulnerabilities, your blocks and your trauma. I will assist you in finding the strength to discard the masks you’ve had to wear throughout life so that you don’t have to live in the shadow of other people’s expectations.
As you start to bring memories, feelings and emotions to the surface you’ll be in a better position to work through your barriers and own your identity.
