To be able to express yourself with confidence, you need to know what you want, but you also have to believe that you’re worth it. For those looking for more individualised support to develop your confidence, we offer 1:1 coaching. We support you to identify what brings you pleasure, set relevant goals, and so work towards them on your terms.
Who is it for?
What do we do?
Coaching is about creating a safe place to explore what’s holding you back and find ways to move forward. You might have beliefs about yourself, your situation, or the world that are limiting your confidence and self expression. Together we’ll explore what you think and feel about situations to see what needs to change. We work together to bring to light the hidden patterns and unspoken assumptions that are causing you to live out of alignment with who you are and what you want. But – and this is crucial! – first we focus on accepting yourself and your circumstances.
That might sound backwards (‘Accepting where I am?! But I want to change!’) but have you ever heard the phrase, ‘What you resist, persists?’
True, embodied confidence comes first through radical self-acceptance. So we’ll start with looking at where you are and prioritise accepting you in this moment. Then we’ll focus on what you want to change and how to get there.
As a somatic coach, we’ll also use what you’re feeling physically as information to help in the process. We might do a few mindfulness type exercises, or experiment with some different types of physical movement – always with a sense of curiosity and playfulness. Why? Because your body has a knowledge your brain can’t always consciously access. This is particularly true around issues related to sex, sexuality, and sexual pleasure, so we’ll check in with your body and see what it has to say.
A note on coaching vs. therapy:
People often ask what the difference is between coaching and therapy. An easy (albeit slightly oversimplified!) way to explain it is that therapy helps to answer, ‘How did I get here?’ whereas coaching helps to answer, ‘How do I get there?’.
Coaching is not the same as therapy and should not be used in lieu of therapy. It is however, often an excellent follow-on or complementary service!
Please note that significant trauma is more appropriately addressed through therapy.
How does it work and how much is it?
All coaching is done remotely, over voice or video call. You can choose the method that feels most comfortable for you.
We’ll start with a 45 – 60 minute ‘chemistry call’ to make sure it feels like a fit. If after that call, you don’t want to go ahead, no problem and NO pressure! Reaching out for support and creating change can be challenging – it’s essential that you have the support system that feels right for you.
Sessions last approximately 1 hour. If we hit a natural stopping point slightly before, we may end then or – if needed and possible for both parties – we may run slightly over, up to 75 minutes.
In-depth text and email support is available in between sessions for an additional fee (see below). This is for when you need significant support, to discuss issues, or to bounce ideas around with a more immediate and detailed response.
Any messages related to scheduling, general questions, or ad hoc celebrating progress, etc. are of course welcomed at any time!
6 sessions – $540
10 sessions – $900
1:1 Ad Hoc sessions – $99
*Text and Email support between sessions can be added for an additional $50 per 5 sessions.
- 48 hours notice is required for all cancellations. Cancellations with less than 48 hours notice will incur a $25 cancellation fee. This isn’t to penalise you, it’s to ensure your commitment and respect for you and your coach’s time. It also allows ample time for rescheduling.
- Last minute requests for sessions (less than 48 hours notice) will be accommodated wherever possible.
- All sessions must be used within 18 months of purchase.
- Sessions over 90 minutes will be considered 2 sessions.
- I am a certified Transformation Coach – I am not a licensed therapist. I am not qualified to provide counselling related to significant trauma and will always refer to additional services as appropriate. Please be aware of this when determining whether coaching is the right fit for you!
