BODY-BASED COACHING AND FACILIATION
Resolving conflict first through the body
Believe it or not, the conflict and judgments you feel towards yourself and others, sits in your body. Those stuck emotions and heavy thoughts are stored physically in your body. And when I work with clients, we work on the body first because it is wonderful at telling the truth.
It will tell us if you are sad, angry, upset, frustrated about something or simply need to rest. It will also tell us what you’re longing for and how you can use your strengths to move in the direction that you desire.
What do I mean when I say conflict?
Refers to anytime you feel or think you should be different to what you are. It happens when your “should’s” collide with your needs and wants.
It happens when you judge yourself for not being good enough or not doing enough. You might even feel let down by your body when it aches and hurts. Often there are feelings of guilt, shame and resentment towards the self and body.
External conflict involves another person, situation or life event. It happens when you disagree with someone else’s values, morals and /or behaviours.
Usually there is judgement towards the other person and you feel an inequality or injustice that creates a fight, flight or freeze response in the body. Your environment and experience feels outside of your control and you’ve been triggered.
But it doesn’t just stop there …
