Frequently Asked Questions
What are flower essences?
Everything in nature has its own vibrational energy. Flowers and plants included! Flower essences are created to enable a connection with the energy of a particular plant to awaken the part of you that relates to it. For example, sunflowers are radiant! When working with the sunflower essence, you can tap into your own inner radiance and cultivate a healthy self-relationship. Using flower essences requires mindfulness and self-observation since energetic shifts can be subtle in nature.
What are archetypes?
Archetypes are patterns that exist across time and space. It can be helpful to work with archetypes to recognize your own patterns and set goals towards what archetypal qualities you want to embody. For example, you may be feeling constrained or “stuck inside the box” in your day-to-day life. What would it be like to tap into a more adventurous, empowered archetype? Who or what represents the energy you want in your life? These are the types of questions we explore together when working with archetypes.
What are mind-body practices?
In Western society, we often view the mind and body as separate. In reality, everything is connected. Mind-body practices recognize and cultivate the integration of mind and body to move towards a sense of wholeness. Practices might include exploring the Felt Sense to become more in tune with messages from the body, trauma-informed movement, mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, playing with dreams, and more.
What is breathwork?
Breathwork is an active breathing technique during which you intentionally control how much you breathe in and out. Breathwork is practiced lying down guided by a facilitator (me) with background music. Through this process, the body may be challenged and emotions stirred. Many people find release as tension and unresolved emotion move through the body as a result of the practice.
I’m interested in exploring a specific technique mentioned above. How do these get incorporated into my coaching?
As early as our first session, we can incorporate any of these techniques. Many of the techniques are woven organically into a coaching session, depending on what you need and what you're interested in. For example, we don't have to use flower essences if that concept does not resonate with you. That being said, archetypes almost always make it into coaching conversations because they seem to resonate with all my clients. If there's a particular practice that you want to take an extended amount of time on, we can designate a specific time for the practice. For example, you may want to do a dedicated 1-hour breathwork session. We would want to identify and plan for these kinds of longer dedicated sessions in advance.
