Embodiment for Sensitive and Highly Sensitive People

Creating Resilience Through Intelligent Movement

Experience being centered and grounded even when events or situations are overwhelming. Achieve this without withdrawing, overanalyzing or feeling exhausted by people. 

Overwhelm takes many forms. Some of my clients feel it situationally; others have struggled for years in multiple environments. Maybe you are feeling shocked and overwhelmed. Since Covid, many people are struggling with a profound sense of loss and with unpredictable change. On the positive side, a significant amount of sensitive people are committing to overcome habitual reactions and agitations.

Sometimes meeting personal obstacles can feel like too big a leap to take alone. Having a trusted guide can help you find comfort and a lasting resilience in your own body.

Working together we can reset how you meet overwhelm and difficulty. You can handle your life with a new ease. I know what I am talking about; I recently lost an adult child. And, my life has been upended before.  And for years by life was stalled by over analysis that led nowhere!

Why this Works.

The pain and stress of a overwhelming experience will, more often than not, cause us to react by tightening our bodies and limiting our lives. 

 At first, this physical and emotional tightening protects you from the worst of the overwhelm. It can be useful but as time goes on it creates lasting feelings of pressure, agitation and taking things personally.

By expanding what you can feel in your body you can find permanent support, resilience and an oasis. You can do this without having to take a lot of time to engage in different exercises. This is a “body up” experience that helps your thoughts relax and your tension let go.

Break the cycle of your sensitivity getting in the way – instead let it become a gift.

You have the ability to overcome reactions and habits that cause you to suffer.  I offer one on one teaching and coaching to help you become more grounded, fluid, secure, resilient and free. You can experience:

  • Relief of emotional, energetic and physical pain and constrictions that limit relaxation, centering and calm..
  • Trust your insight and inner knowing (interception) to guide you but not stress you.
  • Relief from emotional exhaustion, anxiety, and despair.
  • The ability to navigate life on your terms.
Lasting and beneficial change is achievable—but it is a process

According to the UK Behavior Research Center, changing a behavior generally takes at least 66 days of consecutive action. Regaining strength, function, and bodily integrity takes time, attention, and ongoing support.  You can find this support  through the individual programs below. Please realize these programs are a guide. In reality, everything I offer is tailored to you!
