I Just Want to Feel Like Myself Again

Something needs to change, but you don’t know how, or where to start.

Perhaps you’ve been through some significant events or life changes. You’re no longer who you were… but who are you now?

Perhaps life has left you feeling broken apart & you’re finding it hard to piece together the person you are now.

Perhaps you’ve been doing what’s ‘right’ or putting others first to the point that you woke up one day feeling like you’re just fed up, and have lost ‘you’.

You may feel exhausted, frustrated, lost.

You’d like to let go of who you’re not, of what’s no longer working for you & of the past.  And to cultivate who you are and a sense of wholeness.

An Embodied Approach to Coaching and Hypnotherapy

There are many approaches to therapy and coaching. 

If you’re drawn to knowing yourself more deeply and want an approach that goes beyond the overthinking mind and taps into your felt senses, intuition & gut instincts then this may be a path to explore for you.

As you attune to your body’s way of communicating a new internal relationship emerges. This inner relationship is based on your personal truth and deeper knowing. It opens the way for clarity, trust and healing. 

It leads to a sense of wholeness, an emergence of who you really are, and a letting go of who you are not.

Have you ever asked "Who Am I?"

There are times you’ve felt at home in yourself, perhaps when being creative, meditating or talking with someone who just gets you. But then you walk back into your ‘regular life’ and the feeling is lost and you don’t feel at home in yourself, your body or your life. 

You want to let go of who you are not. 

And bring forward who you really are – to come home to your true self. 

You want to feel like yourself again. To have energy & enthusiasm. 

You want to feel solid & grounded in your sense of self. 

You want to feel emotionally resilient.

To know what you want, who you are & to stand true to it no matter what life throws at you.

My aim is to help you find a sense of belonging, aliveness & beauty in life again. 

To have self-respect, resilience and self-love. 

To find comfort & acceptance of who you are. 

To feel whole.

The Desire to be Authentic

Authenticity is a word that seems to be everywhere. And yet for many people it feels like goal that’s out of reach.

The desire to be authentic presents two main challenges.

Firstly: who is my authentic self?! This one can make you laugh, scream or cry… because of course I’d be my authentic self… if I had a clue who that was!  Plus as an emotionally intense or highly sensitive person you likely feel and empathise with other people so much that it’s hard to figure out who you are within it all.

Secondly: in the times you feel you do touch base with your true authentic self, how do you you maintain that connection? How do you not drift or get pulled off course? 

Letting Go of Self Doubt

“In most areas of my life I’m full of self doubt. Except when I’m dancing… then I feel whole, I feel free, I feel me.” 

Self-awareness leads to knowing who you are so you can live authentically. 

Working with your body’s wisdom (embodiment) & inner knowing of your heart & soul. 

Knowing who you are alleviates self-doubt & increases self-esteem. It means you can make choices that are right for you in work, relationships and living. It gives you more energy as you can stop pretending to be who you’re not. 

My aim is to help you on your path of figuring out who you are. What rules don’t fit. How your inner wisdom can guide you to live in a way that feels good, solid, truthful, integral. 

My aim is to help bring that sense of wholeness experienced during yoga, dance, tai chi and expand it into the rest of your life. So your bodies intuition and inner knowing leads you to deep knowing of who you are and a sense of belonging that goes beyond a class and into all areas of your life.

 

Life After Trauma

We’ve all experienced trauma. 

Perhaps it’s with a big T or perhaps a buildup of small t’s. 

My work is to help people take back their lives with self-respect, self-responsibility & self-love. 

To find wholeness & beauty in life again. 

(please note, I am trauma informed, not a trauma specialist).  A lot of the clients I work with who’ve a history of trauma have done some trauma specific therapies and come to me as they want to find a deeper connection with their body and to feel their body as a resource.

About You

None of these are pre-requisites for us working together.  Rather they are regular traits I’ve noticed with clients over the years.

You feel like you have 2 personas.  The one that you show everyone, and the one that’s hidden inside, perhaps even from you. 

You feel different to others, perhaps you’ve been told you’re too sensitive, that you overthink things, your ideals are utopian or unrealistic. 

You want to belong and yet not at the expense of pretending to be something you are not. 

You’re kind, and often put others first but it can take it’s toll on your own needs and energy levels.

You’re a deep thinker. 

You’re sensitive & empathic (feel things deeply). 

You’re creative (even if you’re not using your creativity right now) 

You love the experience of being in your body e.g yoga, dance, tai chi, walking – even if you don’t do it often.  

You struggle with self-doubt. 

A lot of the ‘should’s and rules that are expected from society, family, friends… don’t feel like they fit who you are… you follow them because you want to do the right thing and be a good person, but in following them it leaves you miserable, frustrated and feeling like you’re not honouring your true self / own needs.
