If you are between ages 20-90 and are interested in working with mind body and imagery tools to assist with working with the symptoms and issues that are showing up in your life, I can teach you and coach with you in many methods and processes to change your perspective, emotions, and lifestyle. My most successful clients are at transitional points in their lives, have a diagnosis of a physical health issue (high blood pressure, autoimmune disease, or infertility) that they want to use mind body coping skills to decrease symptoms and distress by decreasing the effects stress and lifestyle that are affecting their Well-Be-ing.
I teach mind skills such as Cognitive Therapy, and NLP Techniques; Body skills, such as awareness of breathing and posture effects on Mood, and Energy skills which research finds gets underneath emotions and works remarkably well with decreasing stress and improving mood, and even helps to shift thinking; and, I use systemic processes for breaking patterns.
