For the healing of the holistic self (mind, body and spirit), I believe in marrying the power of spiritual development with mental and emotional healing for the full awakening of one’s true and whole self. It is for this reason that I have trained in psychospiritual coaching practices based in the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model of psychotherapy.
Coaching is a collaborative, co-creative, non-pathologizing, and client led form of personal counseling. Guided by transpersonal psychology and psychospiritual models of healing, I work with the belief that you are naturally whole, intuitively connected, creative and resourceful, already having within you what you need towards healing, transformation, and leading a fulfilling life.
What is Psychospiritual? – Psychospiritual is an umbrella term for spiritual psychotherapy and pertains to the relationship between the soul and the mind. It builds onto and exceeds traditional psychotherapy by acknowledging the importance of our spiritual health, as well as our mental or behavioral health. It is an integral approach which addresses the whole or holistic health of a person: body, mind, and spirit.
What is Transpersonal Psychology? – Transpersonal Psychology or TP, is a sub school of psychology with the goal of enhancing the study of mind-body relations, consciousness, and spirituality. Founded in the early works of Carl Jung, William James, and Abraham Maslow, it integrates the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience with the framework of modern psychology. It is also known as “spiritual psychology”.
What is Internal Family Systems? – Internal Family Systems model or IFS, was created by Richard Schwartz and applies family systems concepts to the intrapsychic realm (internal psyche). The IFS model proposes that individuals’ subpersonalities interact and change in many of the same ways as do families and other human groups. It addresses the many parts of ourselves and the importance of creating harmony among them (much like an internal family that is within us), being led by the core Self, known as Self Leadership. IFS promotes befriending, loving and accepting all of our parts in order to create complete resonance and wholeness within. It is an incredibly efficient and powerful method in accessing and making space for one’s core or authentic Self to come forth and lead in alliance with a harmonious inner network of parts. It is also commonly known as “Parts Work”. To learn more, visit here.
Coaching v.s Therapy? – Coaching methodology believes in the inherent good, and wholeness of a client, and looks to help clear the way for a client to access the full healing capacity and inner expertise already within them. Traditional therapy approaches often work to find symptoms, diagnose or pathologize. Its foundation is that a client is not inherently whole, and therefore damaged, impaired and deficient in one way or another, and functions through the belief that issues are to be fixed by an external source/expert in order for one to be made whole or complete. In contrast, coaching is an “inside -> out” approach, whereas traditional therapy is an “outside -> in” approach. Additionally, coaching is not focused solely on healing past issues, but in looking onto manifesting one’s fullest potential in both the present, and future. Furthermore, coaching generally works to help someone move from “functioning” to “thriving”. While IFS, or parts work coaching is deeply transformational and heals past issues, it is not recommended in resolving early developmental traumas that result in inhibiting one’s day-to-day functioning. For healing work focused on early behavioral or mental developmental health, therapy is the recommended course.
In psychospiritual coaching work, I hold space for you as we co-create access to your own innate healing capacity, resulting in the unearthing and realization of your fullest potential in all aspects of life. We work together to unveil your whole, and authentic self and bring forth optimal healing, deep self love, the potential for thriving, personal transformation, spiritual awakening, and/or prosperity. We discover and befriend the various parts of you through radical acceptance, love, and curiosity in order to unburden and heal stuck parts, and allow for new ways of being to emerge. As both a medium and a coach, I utilize my intuition as well as my trained skillset for guidance as I work with you in the coaching process.
Coaching work within the IFS model, goes beyond both traditional coaching and therapy modalities in that it combines the best aspects of each. It unites highly effective psychotherapeutic practices along with the coaching principle of already having within you everything you need for growth and happiness. It is as much about manifesting your highest goals and potentials, as it is about deep healing, self actualization and transformation. It believes in the importance of development on all personal levels: mental, emotional, behavioral, and spiritual, through including all aspects of each in the process. This work is not a one size fits all coaching program that promises to effect change in a matter of weeks. It is individualized 1:1 coaching that works at your pace while building capacity and momentum towards full transformation and healing.
This work is designed to help bring about healing and growth on all levels, some of which include finding wholeness, becoming heart-led, achieving self leadership, transforming patterns, transcending fear, overcoming obstacles, actualizing your biggest potential, finding creative and emotional flow, envisioning the future, setting and achieving meaningful goals, transformative healing, radical growth and complete self actualization.
