Neuro-Somatic Intelligence Coaching




Why incorporate Neuro-Somatic tools into your coaching, therapy or healing practice?


The world needs coaches who can attune, co-regulate and practice trauma-informed teaching. Mindset coaching and goal setting are not enough. Changing thoughts, top-down strategy and task-oriented tools are only small pieces of the puzzle that give limited, short-term results, keep clients held in frustrating behavior loops and cause coaches and healers to burnout.

Neuro-somatic Intelligence Coaching equips you with the evidence-based, effective tools and the neuro-knowledge you need to move beyond the analytical to a body-based, trauma-informed practice -- a practice that will produce radically different client outcomes. Become a more powerful and effective coach, therapist or leader, learn from experts and join a community of practitioners that are shifting the paradigm of healing, expansion and growth.

The only program designed to help coaches, therapists, and practitioners use applied neurology to create lasting client transformation via the brain and truly set yourself apart in your field of practice… even if you don’t think this is possible… yet.

Incorporating Neurosomatic Intelligence Coaching into my work is transformational to the point that I think that anyone who doesn’t is crazy. If you are playing a big game, and leading in a big way, you can't do it without understanding and working with the nervous system.."
