As I look back at 2022, I experienced a whirlwind year. I really made the most out of every month. I’d like to tell you about a few of the new coaching tools and techniques I gained to enhance my client’s experience.
More than ever before, I am now focused not only on information from the mind but also on the information from the body. I gained this perspective mainly through the Neuroscience of Change course led by some of the world’s top neuroscientific coaches and experts.
After completing the Neuroscience of Change course in the fall, I realized that the body is important, scientifically speaking. As a business and life coach since 2016, I have always focused on the spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental elements of each individual. Now, I also focus on the network of channels in their bodies, both interoceptionand proprioception.
When we understand our bodies, we understand ourselves and our behavior so much better. Your body is an intelligent social organ that holds information that’s equally important as the information that comes from the five senses.
By integrating mind/body neuroscientific research into my practice, I help clients move blockages in the body and the environment so they can move forward to achieve long-lasting behavioral changes. Equipped with a scientific perspective of what happens in the brain, I can now help a client’s brain experience neuroplasticity and change itself.
Because the body holds important information, I enhanced my coaching practice by becoming a Reiki master which gives me the ability to certify others in Reiki. (Reiki is a meditative Japanese practice that moves energy, reducesstress and anxiety and promotes relaxation and healing.)
Another course that I took was Motivation and Obstacles of Change. I learned new ways to challenge clients to work towards their goals with purpose and drive. When clients change their beliefs, they change their lives and experience a lasting change in behavior. As their life coach and/or business coach, I motivate clients to help them break through blockages to move from Point A to Point B.
Another milestone in 2022 was doing many retreats! By deepening my connection with nature, I helped my clients to gain a deeper sense of the beauty of the Earth and a sense of purpose that makes life more meaningful. By integrating nature-based retreats into my practice, I incorporated a beautiful, natural setting to shift clients’ energy and help them become the person they want to be.
What a year it has been! With the coursework I completed in 2022, I expanded my coaching tools and techniques to better serve my clients. With humble confidence, I can honestly say that it’s difficult to find a life coach or business coach with my level of certifications and training. Not only am I providing meditation and energy-healing experiences, I’m also equipped with neuroscientific knowledge and motivational techniques to bring about effective, long-lasting changes in behavior and mindset that lead to success.
With my Information Technology background, global experiences and knowledge, I have the ability to analyze processes and develop the right solutions. In 2020, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Certified Professional Coach Program where I earned accreditation as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by the International Coach Federation. In June, I’ll advance to the gold standard of coaching, a Master Certified Coach (MCC), after accumulating more than 2,500 hours of coaching experience.
What does 2023 have in store for me? I’ll find out! What I do know already is that when my clients need something to achieve their goals, I am curious and look deeper to find the coaching tools they need. Together, we can accomplish so much – body, mind, and world!
