Coaching Through the Body: A Powerful Source For Transformation

Session Objectives:

  1. Invite experiential learning about the body as a vital resource for change and transformation.
  2. Help coaches build their confidence to observe and work with the body in coaching conversations.
  3. Learn to create partnership with clients somatically to help them shift the story through the body.


Many clients are wonderful storytellers around the challenges they face.  We all know that changing or shifting language or reframing how one speaks about an issue can help a client increase forward movement and them inspire action.  Quite often shifting language alone isn’t enough. More often we need a reframing of mind and body to get transformative results.


In this 90-minute experiential session, the presenter will frame up on why working with body can increase the capacity of the client to make the changes they seek. The session will include a demonstration of an approach that she calls, “The Body Knows” and then invite coaches to work in triads to practice and learn how resourceful and whole our client’s are and why coaching presence is vital in supporting a client to do their own work.

This session provides practice and learning for coaches in the core competencies of Creating Trust and Intimacy, Coaching Presence, Active Listening, and Creating Awareness.
