‘We move through space like we move through life.’ (Stuart Heller)

Have you ever completed a coaching programme feeling that some deeper dimension of the client’s resources remained untapped and wished you could go deeper?

Have you ever worked with “heady” clients who felt stuck, but for whom verbal coaching interactions did little?

Developing a whole-person, embodied approach in your coaching can prove tremendously impactful. It has significantly increased the transformational power of my interventions.  I share here some key learnings from my professional practice.

Embodiment: what are we talking about, and what difference does it make in coaching?

“Embodiment” is the way we are, how we feel, relate and do, in our whole body-mind. Our physiology is far from being just a vehicle for transporting our brain. It is the physical bedrock of our perceptions, cognitions, emotions, relationships and behaviour.
