Collaborative, non-pathologizing mind-body approaches to working with life transitions (career/job change, relationship issues, grief and loss, chronic pain)
Are you finding yourself struggling with the emotional stress of a life transition by trying to either:
Control it? (avoiding, over-thinking, being too perfectionistic), or Escape it? (too much use of food/tv/internet/alcohol/work/sleep)
By keeping yourself "emotionally afloat" in such ways, are you finding that you are entangling yourself more deeply and intensifying your suffering, rather than relieving it?
If so, I invite you to consider a collaborative “coaching” approach that will access your internal wisdom, and transform the parts of you that struggle with emotional stress and interfere in your life.
Such an approach deliberately and safely focuses attention on the present experience in a way that is open, welcoming and compassionate. The result will be increased emotional awareness, acceptance and clarity to bring to life's challenges, less inner reactivity, confusion and avoidance.
"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers." M. Scott Peck
