Productivity – Sustainability – Profitability -Teamwork

You are at the top of your field, you have the skill, experience, and knowledge. You are working at peak capacity in all the areas that you can control. So why is somatic coaching often needed to perform your work at the highest level?

Your autonomic nervous system (ANS) and knee-jerk somatic responses to people, stressful situations, and unexpected problems are not controlled by your conscious mind or even by your hard-won expertise. Your body’s ANS responses are not controllable because the ANS is our threat detection and threat response system, for survival purposes it must be faster than our conscious mind and neocortex. 

Why Somatic coaching is important! Because your Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) regulation responses, your ability to regulate your emotions when under stress, and your attachment style  (the way you instinctively relate and feel around other people) are outside your conscious awareness and not under the control of your conscious mind. This somatic programming has often been laid down as early as infancy or childhood and the patterns are brain-wired into your neural structures. 

This somatic early conditioning in the ANS can hamper our ability to live and work at peak performance. Somatic coaching helps to shift patterns of unhelpful behavior, instinctive responses, and sensations of feeling overwhelmed and not in control over our thoughts, behaviors, and reactions. Somatic coaching works by teaching you how to impact the ANS. You will learn how to decrease your stress hormone levels, re-regulate your ANS, and come back to a Ventral Vagal relaxed connection. This somatic state facilitates peak productivity, sustainability, and better relationships with other people in the workplace and allows you to present your message in a more clear commanding, and confident manner.

 A body is a marvelous gift, Listen to yours!
