What is Embodiment Coaching anyway?

Embodiment coaching offers a unique and effective way to foster personal growth, emotional intelligence, and well-being by integrating the physical, emotional, & mental aspects of one’s self.
It is a valuable option for those seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and wanting to make positive changes in their lives.

Another way I like to explain is “Awareness, Range & Choice” – Awareness of existing embodiment and patterns, practices to build Range and then you have Choice.

How is Embodiment Coaching done?

Instead of trying to ‘Think’ our way around the issue(s), we bring the body into play, fostering an awareness of the physical sensations present, and learning to listen to what the body is saying. Each Client / Coach journey is unique.

It can be as little as one session to help around a particular issue, or a longer collaboration to address bigger challenges.


I provide coaching in a flexible way to meet the needs of the client. While I am based in Ireland for In Person coaching, it could also be online, phone, message, email, indoors, or outdoors in nature…or a combination. Whatever works best for you.

And finally…Why?

Embodiment coaching focuses on the integration of the mind, body, and emotions to help individuals achieve personal and professional growth. There are several compelling reasons to consider Embodiment Coaching:

Tailored to Individual Needs: Embodied coaching is highly adaptable and can be tailored to the specific needs and goals of each individual client. This personalized approach can be especially effective in addressing unique challenges.

Stress Reduction: Embodied coaching techniques often include practices that help individuals manage stress and anxiety. Learning to notice and release physical tension can have a calming effect on the mind and body.

Personal Growth: Embodied coaching can be a powerful tool for personal growth and self-development. It encourages individuals to explore their physical and emotional experiences, which can lead to profound insights and transformative change.

Improved Emotional Regulation: By working with the body’s sensations and emotions, embodied coaching can help individuals regulate their emotional responses more effectively. This can lead to better communication and conflict resolution skills.

Enhanced Leadership Skills: Many leaders find value in embodied coaching because it helps them become more attuned to their own physical and emotional responses, which can improve their leadership abilities, particularly in high-pressure situations.

Behavioral Change: Embodied coaching can be particularly effective for individuals looking to change ingrained behavior patterns. It provides tools for recognizing and altering these patterns at a physical and emotional level.

Increased Confidence: As individuals gain a deeper understanding of their bodies and emotions, they often experience increased self-confidence and a greater sense of self-assuredness.

Increased Self-Awareness: Through embodied coaching, individuals become more aware of their physical sensations and how they relate to their thoughts and emotions. This heightened self-awareness can lead to better self-understanding and improved decision-making.

Better Body Language and Communication: Embodied coaching can improve non-verbal communication skills. Understanding how body language, gestures, and tone of voice convey messages can be especially beneficial in personal and professional relationships.

Enhanced Creativity: Some individuals find that embodied coaching helps them tap into their creativity more effectively. When the mind and body are in sync, creative ideas can flow more freely.

Physical Well-being: Practicing somatic awareness can have positive effects on physical health. Individuals may experience improved posture, reduced physical discomfort, and a greater sense of vitality.

Mind-Body Integration: Embodied coaching promotes a deeper connection between the mind and body. This integration can lead to a greater sense of wholeness and alignment in one’s life.

Holistic Approach: Embodied coaching recognizes the interconnectedness of the mind and body. It takes into account physical sensations, emotions, and thought patterns, offering a holistic approach to personal development.
