Somatic Competence for Elevating Presence-Based Coaching

January 28 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm


Being able to establish intimacy and trust is at the core of our competence as coaches. The deeper we are present and in touch with ourselves, the more we can attune to clients by simply feeling them. Within a positive relational field, clients feel seen, settle down and start building new patterns for themselves.

We know we need to show up in a centered, grounded, warm, open, connected, and contactable state. For most of us, this is a challenge. Do we dare to connect and work on our own limiting intimacy patterns to better serve our clients and the integrity of our work?

In this reflective and highly experiential workshop we will engage our bodies in somatic practices designed to elevate our ability to connect with clients in a deeper, more authentic and more effective way.

Key takeaways and activities include:

  • Establishing and attending to a positive coaching relational field
  • The attunement dance between coach and client
  • Coaching clients beyond words
  • Practices for centering and continuous somatic competence development

Workshop participants will receive 2.0 ICF core competency CCEUs.
