Self-Healing Coaching, Body-Centered Counseling, Reiki and more
These are crazy times, filled with many profound changes to our ways of life – including access to practitioners that help support our health and well-being.
Fortunately, our technology gives us ways we can get support.
Like many practitioners, I’ve got my own version to offer.
No, it’s not the same as what we would do in a hands-on session.
But - there is a lot that we CAN do in a virtual session to support both your emotional and physical well-being, which I’ve been exploring with different folks for a few years – and those of my regular clients that I’ve seen this past week via Zoom have been very pleased.
Stuart has been great in adapting what we do in his office for video sessions. Our recent session combined focused breathing, self-massage, movement and counseling and left me feeling much more relaxed and balanced than I was when we started. Continuing our weekly meetings remotely has supported my personal efforts to maintain a sound mind and body during this stressful and surreal time.

The practices in these sessions, listed below, can be used for:
Easing the cycle of anxiety and worry
Supporting optimal immune system function
Supporting more clear, healthy breathing
Alleviating areas of chronic pain and tension
Supporting recovery from specific injuries
Supporting recovery from other physical challenges, including surgeries and infections
Helping to clear newly arising echoes from old injuries and hurts that may be stirred by our current challenges
Strengthening the capacity to feel connected with the gifts of life
Together, we’ll develop a set of custom-tailored body-mind-spirit practices – that we’ll explore together, so you can use them on your own - to support your capacity to be your best Self even as you live with challenges.
The elements of these practices have been at the heart of my work from the beginning – integrated into my private sessions, as well as offered in a range of group settings since the 1990’s, and include:
Meditation and awareness practices
Self-massage and acupressure
Focused stretching, yoga postures and other therapeutic movement practices
Sound-healing and breath work
Spiritual direction and prayer
Suggestions for journalling and other expressive arts or ritual practices
…. and for the adventurous or curious:
Earth/Nature Energy/Spirit Attunement practices
Spirit Guide and Power Animal Attunement practices
These session can be integrated with distant healing Reiki, a surprisingly potent and effective way of working.
Audio and/or video recordings can be made to support your home practice following our time together.
