Research has described the negative effects of stress on the body. Linked to the release of the stress-hormones adrenalin and cortisol, stress raises the heart rate and blood pressure, weakens immunity and lowers fertility. By contrast, the state of relaxation is linked to higher levels of feel-good chemicals such as serotonin and to the growth hormone which repairs cells and tissue. Indeed, studies show that relaxation has virtually the opposite effect, lowering heart rate, boosting immunity and enabling the body to thrive.
Our goal is to assist you over the “tough spots” in your life, while providing you with the practical skills to understand and transform these perceived difficulties into healthier ways of functioning. This fosters new and often exciting perceptions, attitudes and behaviors, leading to a greater connection between your mind, body and spirit. The results: better health and making more adaptive, creative choices in your world. This often requires active participation both within and between coaching sessions, with home assignments given out as needed. In time, life becomes a journey that you look forward to, and you find that your initial difficulties are no longer as troubling to you.
