With so much information overload in our world , our external attention gets scattered and it becomes easy to leave our lived experience of the body behind and stay stuck in our mental body.
Somatic Coaching is a body centered approach that builds bridges between the habits in our thinking brains and our forgotten bodies, bringing us present to our bodies' language , enabling shifts in our psychological , emotional and physical experiences of ourselves and our lives.
The body holds the sum total of our histories , our conditioning and our emotional range- These show up in our posture, in the way we speak , in our coping mechanisms , our interpretations and our reactions . Nicole uses Brainspotting as a tool that allows the deep brain and body to access the primitive brain where emotional pain and discomfort is held , and which hijacks us and dictates our decision making based on fear.
