What is Integrative Coaching?
This approach is centered on understanding patterns within the global system -our physical, lifestyle, belief patterns, and emotions. It 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 the inner world or what I would call our 'inner ecosystem'.
Integrative coaching explores the clients beliefs, values, emotions, perceptions through a non-pathologizing lens. All parts of our being are welcome! It builds on the assumption that clients self has their own innate wisdom and resources to rebalance the system. Integrative coaching guides you in connecting with what is happening now to what could have potentially been the beginning of the now. In helping you see patterns and missing experiences, integrative coaching helps you tap into your own wisdom-your Self energy to shift the global system.
Integrative coaching draws from a wide range of methodologies, each sharing the concepts of self healing, relational connection, and compassionate witnessing. Integrative coaches pay attention to all aspects of a client's experience, including bodily sensations, tensions, traumas, perceptions, emotions, and habits.
An Integrative coaching session provides a space to improve a person’s self-awareness and self compassion through reflective listening and curious exploration. This root-cause approach of identifying and altering the tension in the global system can help facilitate profound change. An emphasis on lifestyle integration with habitual change is emphasized as a way to solidify new patterns and ways of being which support your values, intentions, and gifts.
What is a session like?
Each meeting is centered around a particular area or situation in your life that you may want more insite into such as your thoughts, beliefs, emotions, 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. Our compassionate and curious approach is acknowledging that all parts of us are welcome, though some parts are carrying burdens that are outdated and sometimes excessive. With this compassionate witnessing and helping your system identify missing experiences or burdens, we then can help rebalance the system through self inquiry and Self awareness practices.
