This is an alternative to conventional therapy which puts the therapist in the driver’s seat rather than you. But it’s your life. With somatic grief coaching you are in the driver’s seat. Your issues are in your tissues. Somatic Grief Coaching allows you to release the emotional pain at the cellular level. And, you get to learn how to do this for yourself in record time. At Your Life Matters, the gift of grief is a foundational assumption: life is too short to rehash the past over and over again.
This is for independent thinkers, who want to find their own way. It gives you the keys to newfound resilience in how you navigate reality, but even more importantly, it helps you awaken your deepest, most profound connection: a very personal, inner spiritual connection that inspires your breath, your body and your very soul.
Trauma produces a state of dread and anxiety over what might be coming next. Any major loss is a Lifequake. A Lifequake is like an earthquake: it causes such upheaval that you are completely thrown out of any semblance of a normal life.
With any sudden dramatic change, such as the death of a loved one, or whenever life follows a path that no one would choose on purpose, the trauma that ensues is an upheaval that affects perspective, identity, emotional balance and causes chronic physical distress and pain. This is a direct attack on the whole person: body, mind and soul. The word, "Soma" translates from the ancient Greek to mean, "the Whole Person," including every level of experience: the physical, the mental, the emotional, the energetic. Up to this point, there have been no solutions to grief that address all of these levels of human experience. Somatic grief coaching, however, is now available to you. Find comfort at the level of body, mind and soul. Regain the sense of agency over your own life direction.
A somatic response is vital because the nature of trauma is different than average grief. Significant, intimate trauma happens in a split second. And in that split second, there is a sudden awareness that nothing in your life will ever be the same again.
It happens before you can find the words to express it. In other words, trauma is preverbal, therefor a way home to yourself after living in the shadow of such a disruption to the self must include a non-verbal response. At Your Life Matters, you learn a process of self-soothing that resets the stress response at the level of the nervous system. This allows your health to improve, your relaxation response to be restored as well as a sense of ease and wellbeing in body and mind. Ultimately, however, it’s a balm to your soul when you discover you are not powerless. You have the tools to find a way forward within your grasp.
Discover an embodied solution that relieves years of tension. It releases new energy for living and ends the seemingly endless dominance of the grief cycle that conventional wisdom only perpetuates.
