Sessions are centered on a curious exploration and identification of patterns within the clients entire system -patterns that are reflected through the physical body, lifestyle choices, core belief patterns, and emotions. This approach recognizes that the mind and the body are not separate and what the physical form is experiencing and expressing is directly influenced and informed by ones inner world or what can be called the ‘inner ecosystem’.
Integrative coaching explores beliefs, values, emotions, habits, and perceptions through a non-pathologizing lens. All parts of our being are welcomed! The integrative healing process is about inclusion of that which was once excluded or unavailable through attunement, co-regulation, and self regulation practices.
It builds on the assumption that the client’s self energy has its own innate wisdom and resources to rebalance and restore health and well being. Integrative coaching gently guides the participant in connecting with what is happening now to patterns from the past-those of which may be present from personal experience, ancestral, or cultural burdens. In revealing and identifying these patterns, missing experiences then have an opportunity to be reclaimed, unfelt emotions to be expressed, belief patterns altered, and updated habits to be introduced and integrated.
This approach draws from a wide range of methodologies, with a strong emphasis on the techniques based in Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Hakomi therapy. The therapeutic focus relies on the power of self healing, relational connection, and compassionate witnessing.
Special attention to the whole person is emphasized, exploring all aspects of the client’s experience, including bodily sensations, tensions, traumas, perceptions, emotions, beliefs and habits. An Integrative coaching session provides a space to improve self-awareness and self compassion through the relational aspects of reflective listening and curious compassionate exploration with another.
An emphasis on lifestyle integration with habitual change is emphasized as a way to solidify new patterns and habits, which supports the full embodiment of ones values, intentions, and gifts.
What is a session like?
Each meeting is centered around a particular area or situation that may benefit from more insight. Those experiences which may be causing conflict with oneself, in relationship, physical symptoms, or habitual patterns. Remember, this approach is non pathologizing. We spend time getting to know your inner ecosystem and all of the parts that may be driving your decisions and your physiologic patterns. This compassionate and curious relational approach acknowledges that all parts of us are welcome, though some parts may be carrying burdens which are outdated and perhaps over dominating. With this compassionate witnessing and possible identifications of polarizations or outdated belief patterns, the self healing system is then able to rebalance and restore.
Who would benefit from Integrative Coaching?
Anyone who is interested in greater self inquiry and understanding of themselves. Individuals who may be experiencing physical issues, emotional or belief patterns that are interfering with who and how they want to be in the world.
