Who are you, really? Could your beliefs about yourself be real, but not true? Might it be that there's nothing wrong with you? And that perhaps you could learn to live with more self-compassion, freedom and joy? It all starts with arriving in the present moment: a shift in perspective can open a whole new world to wellbeing. I believe that within us, we each have a part of us, deep down, who is quite wise, who we can access to help guide us through our journey. Dr. Peter Levine of Somatic Experiencing says, "trauma is a fact of life but it doesn't have to be a life sentence." I know this to be true from my own personal experience. And I also know trauma doesn't have to be what people call "big T" trauma - an accident, assault, or natural disaster - it can also be developmental: that our needs as a child weren't met in the way we would have liked & needed to feel safe, secure & soothed. But we can learn to "titrate" or dip our toe into the water, slowly & gently, through a trusted holding space, to address some of these very young, wounded, overwhelmed, &/or angry & frustrated parts so they can be transformed & healed - & so they no longer get so easily triggered in your daily life.

We can co-create this space w/ the use of mindfulness meditation, through noticing what's happening in the body through Somatic Experiencing &/or creative writing exercises in memoir/poetry. I'm a certified meditation teacher, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (in training) & poet/writer. I aim to deeply listen, support & create a trusted holding space to explore a full range of experience & empower & educate you w/ information about how the nervous system & neuroscience of the brain works, so you begin to understand you aren't just the "stories" about yourself that you may believe to be true.

Many of us live in the past or the future. We ruminate & regret, or we have anxiety & worry about what may happen next in life. By learning how to regulate your own nervous system & by understanding what external "triggers" affect you - you can learn to tolerate life's ups & downs in a new way, with fresh eyes, embodied presence, & an open, empowered & courageous heart. We can discuss what you would most like to address in a free phone consult. I can work with you in person in Brooklyn, and/or via Skype/Zoom at a time suitable to your schedule. I would love to join you on your healing journey.

Francesca M. Maximé Trauma-Informed Somatic Wellbeing and Life Coach and Certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher's Groups

Mindful Dating, Mindful Life: Women's Group

Living in NYC can be a challenge. Sometimes, finding your tribe, circle of trusted friends, & nourishing 'caring committee' of folks who've got your back can be tough to cultivate. Add to that, that we're in the #MeToo, #TimesUp, Tinder & porn era - much of it may leave us shaking our heads. And yet - there's a way back to sanity & healing. Through learning mindfulness techniques, how to regulate our own nervous systems, & ways we can establish & maintain boundaries, we can come together & open up to a world where more of our needs are met & our unique gifts are celebrated.

More about this group

Learn Mindfulness & Somatic Healing Methods Online

Mindfulness is really popular, but what is it? A way of learning how to relate to life with a shift in perspective by paying nonjudgmental moment to moment attention to your "here/now" experience in a curious, kind, friendly way without pushing anything away, clinging to anything, or "checking out." Somatic Experiencing techniques help us learn to self-regulate your nervous system: this can lead to much greater calm & ease in living. Join us online for this ongoing group where we explore the sensations, thoughts & feelings that come up in our minds & bodies, from the comfort of your own home.
