I nurture myself.
I heal my body.
I relief my mind.
The first core principle in Somatic Coaching is to feel. The moment you feel yourself is when you become aware of what is. This plays an essential role for re-connecting with your body and bodily sensations. The ability of (re-)sensing allows your body and mind to understand, to release tension and stress as well as freeing your movement and action.
Feeling and Awareness are two major catalysts for the new and unexpected. Your beliefs and principles, your emotional, mental and physical pattern, that shaped your reality so far come into question. Categories you are accustomed to, get shaken in a good way.
During a Somatic Coaching Session you will be guided by touch and instructions. You will learn to focus your attention to where your body and mind needs it in order to recover, heal or understand what is going on.
With each breath you tap into your actual potentials. With every movement, you are paving the way of letting go what’s no longer useful and needed. With full awareness, you are taking responsibility for yourself, to live a happy life in freedom and ease.
Healing happens beyond
the realm of thought.
Much of our suffering and symptoms arise from intense experiences (e.g. loss or lack of love, neglect, abuse, stress, mobbing...) or from experiences due to accidents, operations or chronic illness. From this arise deeply ingrained patterns of behavior and thinking, which shape our reality now.
Somatic Coaching helps you to become aware, to understand, relief and release the stored pressure, stress or emotions that arise from existing behaviors in relation to pain and fear.
You learn to let go related beliefs and extreme emotions, that block you. Each moment of release allows you to recognize and experience that something heavy and restricting could fall off your shoulders and chest.
Together we will create space and time for new possibilities. Every Session opens the field for you to step out of your usual frame of perception and let your body guide you into a new world of experience.
"Many things were unclear, my mind was foggy, my view was very narrow and the pain in my right shoulder was hardly bearable.
After only a few sessions with Barbara, the pain in my shoulder was no more, new possibilities of thinking and acting arose in me, the fog lifted, my view widened and suddenly there was room for new emotions
No matter if I was angry, sad or happy, Barbara accompanied me and always gave me confidence and stability! Even today, when things get tight and tiring, maybe even painful, I can hear her saying to me: Breathe and let go slowly."
When the body does its work.
The human body possesses an astonishing and persistent capacity to heal itself. Disease generally occurs when we abuse our bodies or deprive them of basic requirements to keep us healthy over extended periods.
The human body is in a constant mode of balancing. Switching from activity to passivity, from a high level of energy to a low level of effort. Neurologically we move between these two poles: our mechanism of survival (the fight or flight mode) and our ability to be at ease (the rest and digest mode).
Every second that we’re alive, the cells in our bodies are endlessly working to bring us back to a natural state of homeostasis or equilibrium. This balance on a physical, mental and emotional level is the goal of every Somatic Coaching Session.
