Online Class: Helping Clients
Regulate & Resource
Before clients can do the work of therapy or coaching, they need to have a regulated nervous system.
In this course you will learn simple techniques that will help clients feel more calm and grounded. Leading clients through them will benefit your own nervous system as well.
You will have the opportunity to experience these methods yourself and to practice them in a supportive environment so you can feel more confident bringing them into your work with clients.
We'll also learn about practices you can offer to clients that will help them resource themselves and build greater emotional resiliency over the long term.
Are you experiencing any of these common challenges?
Clients who are often dysregulated and can't seem to settle into the work of the therapy or coaching session
Clients who are stuck in story and repeat the same things without moving forward
Feeling powerless to help a client change their emotional overwhelm and reactive behaviors
You know some regulation practices would help, but you don't know how to incorporate them into a session
You're not sure how your clients would react to these types of practices or how to introduce them
You don't have enough experience with regulation techniques to lead them with confidence
Enjoy more ease and fulfillment in your work with clients, using powerful techniques that will help you:
Teach clients to self-regulate by utilizing existing biological mechanisms
Learn practices that help clients resource themselves and build resiliency
Help clients have an actual experience of their own compassion
Prepare clients to face inner experiences from a place of groundedness
See clients begin to change perspective from the one who is helplessly
suffering to the one who is resourced enough to meet that suffering

She earned her Yoga Teacher Certification in the Himalayas where she studied yogic regulation practices extensively. She uses the practices taught in this class to help clients learn to self-regulate so they can experience more emotional freedom and ease in the moment, but also with the goal of building long term emotional capacity and resilience.
Neuroscience shows that when clients are dysregulated, they do not have full access to the parts of their brain that allow them to reflect on their experiences and respond appropriately...the very things that therapy and coaching require.
The techniques taught in this class are science-based and designed to integrate the various parts of the brain and to calm the nervous system. Not only do they help clients prepare for the work of the session, but you can choose specific practices to help clients when they are experiencing things like emotional overwhelm, depression, anxiety, and lack of energy.
We teach a variety of techniques - some simple, and some more complex - and we give you many ways to customize them to the needs and preferences of your individual clients. This also gives you the opportunity to discover which ones you feel most comfortable leading, and to adapt them to your own way of working with clients.
