Embodied Presence:
how to stay present in difficult situations

online coaching and workshops

We all have experienced that feeling of being unhappy after a conversation: that we haven’t communicated the  way we wanted to, we didn’t know quite what to say, we were too direct or too awkward, or found urselves just repeating old formulas and getting nowhere. 

In the heat of the moment tension or old patterns often take over, because most of us have never learned to be fully present when things get uncomfortable.

It’s only afterwards that we realize how we could have acted better, and got the result we wanted.
“What I should have said is…!”

My trainings will give you tools that enable you to always communicate  from your personal ‘Window of Presence’, so that in the heat of the moment you can maintain a relaxed state-of-awareness and respond adequately. 

How I work?

Using a case-study, we take a closer look at your communication patterns. Either in a one-on-one session, or in a small workshop group.  A bit like in a laboratory, we look at what happens to you when you interact with others.

First we explore what you want to achieve and ways to prepare for it.

Then, in a safe environment, we go through the situation several times, and closely observe your inner dynamics while you experiment with different communication styles, and experience different outcomes. 

We’ll discover the style that best suits you, and allows you to fully express yourself, to share your truth, and so achieve what you want.

The result

You’ll  know how to use a set of tools that will enable you to stay in contact with yourself and your goals. You’ll know how to stay aware of those signals in your body that want to drag you out of the situation. You’ll have expanded your bounderies, and enlarged your window of presence. You’ll have had the experience of doing things differently, and posess the tools to do it.
You’ll feel more confident and empowered.
