Trauma-informed Yoga

I can support you and your patients or employees with trauma-informed yoga classes. The practice of a trauma sensitive yoga can support patients to reconnect to their bodies safely after, often, a long time of bodily disassociation as a result of past traumas. The benefits of this is evidenced in many studies, and can help bring people back to a calm and healthier state of being resulting in an overall positive impact on both physical and mental health.

Trauma-informed Coaching

I can also support your patients with trauma-informed coaching in complement to therapy.

Trauma-informed coaching offers a powerful complement to traditional therapy, enhancing patient outcomes by focusing on the present and future. While therapy addresses past traumas and emotional challenges, trauma-informed coaching builds on this foundation, helping patients set and achieve personal and professional goals while recognizing the impact trauma can have in their present experience. By integrating both approaches, patients benefit from a holistic support system that fosters healing and growth.

  • What is the difference between coaching and therapy?
    According to the ICF, ‘’Coaching focuses on visioning, success, the present and moving toward the future. Therapy emphasizes psychopathology, emotions and the past to understand the present, and it works more with developing skills for managing emotions or past issues than does coaching.’’ ​ In general terms, therapy helps heal traumas or blockages from the patient’s past that are impacting their present moment. In coaching, the focus is on the client’s present moment with the aim of achieving goal(s) in the future.
  • Does the Coach give advice?
    As a coach, our role is not to tell you what to do or give you advice, but rather to create a space for your reflection and, through impactful questions, visualization exercises, or other approaches, help you achieve your own insights that come from within and inspire you to take actions that are aligned with yourself and your values. My role is to empower you to find what is best for you, based on what you want. We can brainstorm together, I can challenge you on what emerges; my role is to guide you towards what seems best for you. Occasionally, at your request, I can give you advice, but at that point, it will no longer be coaching.
  • What about confidentiality?
    As a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF), I am bound by the principles of confidentiality set forth in the ICF Code of Ethics. I maintain strict confidentiality for all your business and personal information. I do not to disclose any information concerning you without your written consent. Please note that confidentiality may not be maintained under certain conditions (e.g., illegal activity; imminent or likely risk of danger to self or to others; etc.).
  • How does a coaching session unfold?
    Depending on my clients' geographical location and preferences, we meet either in person or via Zoom. The session will begin with an assessment of your current situation, the challenges you are facing, and your goals. We will then set specific objectives to establish an action plan aimed at achieving tangible results. Throughout the session, in a supportive space, I will challenge you by asking impactful questions, encouraging deep reflection, and exploring new perspectives, so you can define clear actions that resonate with you and help you move forward. Depending on your needs, we will use various possible approaches (visualizations, NLP, body-oriented approach, etc.). Thus, you will be able to define clear actions that resonate with you and help you move forward. At the end of the session, you will have the opportunity to recap what you have discovered about yourself during our exchange and define concrete actions to implement before our next meeting. We will also discuss the resources needed to achieve these goals. To ensure the success of our sessions, it is essential that you be open, honest, and ready to be challenged.
  • What is the difference between a Trauma-Informed Coach and a Trauma Therapist?
    Therapists serve as primary caregivers in mental health, functioning within a medical framework, while Coaches operate within a supportive framework. Therapists address and manage trauma directly, whereas Trauma Informed Coaches don't administer trauma treatment but instead possess an understanding of the intricacies involved in working with clients who have experienced trauma. ​ Trauma Informed Coaching involves recognizing the impact of past trauma on a client's current experiences and utilizing it as a roadmap for developing resilience and forward-thinking coaching approaches. Often, individuals may require both therapy and coaching support concurrently, with therapy addressing trauma head-on and coaching focusing on present-day progress and development. ​ Here's a concise breakdown of what coaches can and cannot do: ​ My Approach as a Trauma Informed Coach: I anchor my work in the present, focusing on my clients' current life experiences. I strive to understand how trauma affects them today. My goal is to empower clients through coaching strategies that build on their strengths, foster healthy beliefs, and develop positive coping mechanisms. I operate in a collaborative manner, serving as a guide, mentor, and support system. I may provide education on trauma and recovery or assist in setting recovery goals, always ensuring the client leads the process. What I Do Not Do as a Coach: I do not prescribe or offer advice on medication. I do not treat, diagnose, or assess mental health conditions. I do not exceed my scope of competence.
  • What is coaching?
    The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as ‘partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership. We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.
  • What principles is coaching based on?
    As a coach, we firmly believe in the untapped potential of each client. Nothing is definitive; everything remains possible. Even if the past has not yielded the desired results, it does not mean that the future will be the same. Together, we work to build a better future starting from today. Our collaboration is based on an active partnership. Reflection and creativity are essential for discovering new solutions. We aim to develop resources, help the client develop their identity and beliefs, and guide them towards a better understanding of themselves. Solutions and actions primarily come from the client to ensure that they are easily applicable and assimilated. As a coach, we encourage the client's autonomy and responsibility. While we may share knowledge and perspectives, our role is not that of a teacher.
  • What approach is used during sessions?
    Each session is unique and tailored to the client's needs and preferences. We may use visualization techniques, NLP exercises, a body-mind-oriented approach, or other methods depending on the client's goals and specific situation. The goal is to create a supportive and growth-oriented environment where the client can explore, learn, and progress towards their goals and challenges effectively and sustainably.
  • How long does a session last?
    A session usually last between 45 min and 1 hour.
  • What does a Coach do?
    The coach helps the individual to step back and consider things from a new perspective. They encourage the discovery of existing resources, identify areas for development or change, and determine what should be stopped, started, or continued. Their primary tool is questioning, enabling a comprehensive understanding of the situation and access to new perspectives. Depending on their training and sensitivity, the coach may use other tools such as NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), a body-mind-oriented approach, etc.
  • What is the difference between coaching and consulting?
    The main difference between coaching and consulting is that coaching pulls out answers from the client while consulting tells the client what to do. Consultants provide their clients with expert advice or solutions to help them achieve their goals. On the other hand, coaches guide and support their clients in a collaborative discovery process to help them find their own solutions and reach their goals. While consultants typically offer specific strategies and recommendations, coaches encourage clients to tap into their own knowledge, skills, and resources to achieve their desired outcomes. Coaching focuses on empowering clients to develop their own problem-solving abilities and achieve sustainable results.
