Why is creating safety in our own body so important?


Many adults come from families where either one or both parents were emotionally immature. This isn't a judgement, it's an opportunity. And even if you had the most perfect upbringing, as an adolescent you may have encountered emotionally immature caregivers, teachers or adults who couldn't create safety for you, or even willingly compromised & violated your safety. 

This may have created a belief within you that it was no longer safe to be in your body. And over time patterns were created to keep you disconnected ("safe"), hyper vigilant ("prepared"), or otherwise distracted ("soothed").  

You might ask, whats wrong with that? I'm safe, prepared and soothed. Well, not really, you're in a state of reactionary survival, which keeps you out of the present moment, in fear, and in many cases leads to illness. 

This course is a journey designed to lay the basic foundation so you¬†can¬†begin¬†to deepen and enrich your everyday experience of life ‚Äď your relationships, emotions, sensations, and activities. We have to increase our capacity to be in the present moment, and this is¬†accomplished by first creating¬†an inner sense of safety in¬†our own body.¬†

Somatic Experiencing Coach 


As a relationship, intimacy, and communication coach my work is anchored in a somatic approach, which helps you identify, relate with, and shift your unwanted patterns, and therefore achieve your goals, and align with your purpose and path. Conscious embodiment is the doorway into your subconscious, and it is the key to greater presence and joy in your life.

This course was incredible... Simple, yet profound. I am new to this concept of "holding space" but what I learned in this course showed me that it's NECESSARY for my work as a practitioner to find safety in my own body so I can better serve others. I am way more present for my personal relationships as well.  Highly recommend to ANYONE!
