Somatic

THE EXHALE YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR...

What if all of the things you think are wrong with you…

Aren’t actually wrong at all...

What could change for you if you were able to quit looking at your anxiety, fear, blocks, worries, and pain as things to be fixed and healed and instead see them as the portals to your greatest wisdom?

If you're tired of picking yourself apart in an attempt to 'heal'...

It's time to do it a different way.

If that's a scary idea, know this:

You already have everything you need inside of you. You’ve heard this before, I'm, maybe without fully grasping the true meaning of it.

 

What it means is this:

 

At the very core of it, all of your 'problems' come down to one thing: A lack of capacity to feel.

 

And reclaiming your ability to feel all of yourself and all of life is the key to the solution you’ve been seeking.

'When I invested in you it felt like a lot of money — and now it feels like the best money I’ve ever spent. There’s no way I could have known what I just experienced, it’s not something you can explain and put on your website. This is more valuable than people know when they invest in this.’

- Paul

You've read the books, you have a dedicated morning routine, you follow the people on social media, and you’ve probably even done therapy and know exactly what you need to work on…

You’re talking about it, journaling on it, understanding it, bringing awareness to it...

And STILL you can never quite escape and heal from the thing you want to change about yourself.

And therein lies the problem...

Most people approach their healing from their heads.

But feeling doesn’t happen in your mind. It happens in your body.

There's enormous power inside of the very things you've been trying to change about yourself...  

When you get your body involved in your healing, you get to tap into, use, and integrate that power.

Every one of your symptoms...

The anxiety, stuckness, overwhelm, overthinking, not being able to make a decision, freezing, not being able to show up online, avoiding, never being fully honest with your partner, never quite feeling like you’re being your true self…

 

Are exactly that, symptoms of not feeling.

They’re not problems you need to get rid of and fix. They are wise languages you get to interpret.

 

There’s an intelligent part of you that knows something that your conscious mind can’t yet access. The way to get to that, is through your body.

 

Once you have the key to this inner knowing, the conflict and void currently waging war inside of you can be integrated into wholeness.

Introducing...

1-1 Somatic Coaching

Where you become the greatest authority on your own healing

How it feels

Using a unique and intuitive combination of coaching, inquiry, nervous system regulation, breathwork, thought work, energy work, movement, and deep listening to your body and the healer inside of you.

During the container, we gradually increase your window of tolerance for feeling and expressing what's true for you.

 

It sounds uncomfortable. And it is. It’s work. It’s a process. You may process a lot of difficult feelings. 

 

But you’ll also feel amazing feelings.

 

The hard stuff is balanced by being RELIEVED of discomfort, by RELEASING things you’ve been holding onto, being able to DO THINGS you couldn’t get yourself to do, and being able to FEEL MORE GOOD FEELINGS while knowing that you can handle the less-good ones.

 

You may feel inspired to make big changes, or you may just go through life feeling a little lighter and a little more joyful, and more YOU.

What you gain from the 1-1 container depends on your intentions for coming, where you're starting from, and what you bring with you, but some things you can/might expect are:

  • You know that feeling when you can finally exhale because you realise you don’t have to hold it all together anymore? That.

  • The skill of feeling life instead of protecting yourself from it, so you can start actually living it.

  • A flexible nervous system and a wide window of tolerance for experiencing life. So you can start that business, post that selfie, have that conversation, say no, say yes, and live your life as YOU without crashing, freezing, hiding, procrastinating, or freaking out.

  • The ability to peacefully look back on the things that happened to you without the swell of anger rising in your belly.

  • An unwinding of all of the playing small that’s programmed into your breath, posture, movement, and thoughts.

  • The capacity to feel the full spectrum of what it is to be human, including the difficult emotions you’ve been trying to avoid up until now.

Feeling the nudge to step into this work? Your first somatic practice is to trust that knowing...

What to expect

In somatic coaching, we work with your body as the way in to your inner world, your subconscious, your nervous system, your pains and struggles, and your highest power. We recognise that your body is the living representation of how you’re being, feeling, and acting in the world.

 

How you are in your body shows us how you think, feel, form relationships, process, manage your energy, take meaningful action, engage with life, and form meaning in a way that is not obvious through talking. Your body is the most tangible way into observing and working with how you live your biological, linguistic, historical, social, relational, and spiritual lives.

 

While there is no set structure or methodology to follow (because we work intuitively and phenomenologically) we do work on three (non-linear, interconnected)  somatic levels in our coaching container:

The 3 Levels We Work On

On your body

Bodywork, movement, posture, tension, nervous system relaxation, habits, breathing biomechanics and biochemistry, diet, sleep.

This is where we release the conditioned, protective, muscular tension that is stored in your body and that contributes to pain, feeling blocked, tired, and being ‘closed’. Then you can return to being held up and influenced more by your primal tension, that is, your life force.

With your body

Deep listening, sensing, feeling, emotions, thoughts, practicing, expressing, breathing, body shape and holding patterns.

This is where we bring in your emotional, social, and environmental life.

 

Example: you know you hold yourself back from being in a relationship/telling your parents you’re a Life Coach /letting yourself cry. And you’re still holding yourself back. You’re aware of how you’re being, but haven’t been able to actually change it.

 

So we unlock the wisdom inside the ‘stuck’ tension, patterns, emotions, posture, etc. that you’re habituated into. From here you can develop your self-responsible, co-creative, conscious relationship with yourself via how you live in and through your body so you can make different choices that lead to actual change.

Through your body

Energetics.

This is where we work with intention, your wisdom, your intuition, meaning and purpose, spirituality, and your life force.
 

The sexy, mystical stuff where we engage with the life energy that animates and shapes who you are. Your aliveness and how you engage with and channel it.

 

We find and connect with your patterns of energy, interconnectedness, interdependence, reciprocity, higher perspective, and expression, how they expand and contract you, your relationships, and your worldview, and connect you with Nature, Spirit, and your sense of meaning and purpose in life.

I'm Rachel

Somatic and breathwork coach, yoga and meditation teacher, energy worker.

I guide you to spend a little less time in your mind and a little more time in your body, so you can feel and experience life, rather than thinking and analysing your way through it. 

 

As a culture, we avoid and protect ourselves from uncomfortable feelings and difficult emotions because we were never taught how to experience them without the negative repercussions of shame, name-calling, guilt, being rejected etc. Because of this, we have adopted mind-based approaches like therapy, talking, thinking, and meditating to try to feel better. 

 

The problem is that feelings are not experienced in your mind. Life is not experienced in your mind. It’s experienced in your body. The taste of chocolate, the smell of your coffee, the freedom of dancing, hugging your children. Receiving money. Giving a sell-out talk on stage at your best-selling book tour. It’s all in the body. Somatic practices, including modalities like breathwork, movement, and sensing give us a way into the body to start building tolerance for exploring all emotions, sensation, and feeling.

 

I believe that when we stop pathologising feelings and trying to micro-manage them, and come down into our body we can finally feel them, listen to them, and learn from our body’s innate intelligence.

I’ve studied with teachers including Cyndi Lee, Dan Brule, Bessel Van der Kolk, Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, and Richard Strozzi Heckler to cultivate my approach based on a combination of energetic work, spirituality and yoga, nervous system regulation, trauma sensitivity, and somatic coaching.
