Remembering the resource – by Marcia Dorfman



Have you ever found yourself unsure how you are going to handle a new or difficult situation?

Let’s face it, we all have times when our confidence has gone temporarily missing and the thought of stepping into uncharted territory makes us wonder how we are going to pull it off.

It could be performance anxiety anticipating stepping onto a bigger stage; or being put in charge of a high-stakes project; or needing to have a ‘difficult’ conversation with someone.

As body-centered coaches, we particularly like working with our clients at times like this. Using a technique we call ‘remembering the resource’, we can guide our clients to remember a related previous accomplishment and by so doing they access their own internal resilience and strength. When they recognize this within themselves, body, mind and spirit are aligned, and they are ready to step out of uncertainty and forge ahead confidently.

Really all we are doing is helping our clients tune into what they already know. And it’s lovely hearing how they then sailed through whatever the challenge was, calmly and successfully.

Clients will grow and achieve meaningful and sustainable change in the following areas: decision-making and setting goals, moving beyond limiting beliefs, fusions, fears & anxiety, embodying resources for greater insight and inner peace, and health and well-being.

What does Body-Centered approach offer that is different from other somatic trainings?

Body-Centered Coaching has a unique set of skills designed specifically for coaches, therapists and other helping professionals that incorporates multi-disciplinary approaches to deliver sustainable change.

Its foundation is based on mindfulness, simply being, reflective presence, body wisdom and embodied wholeness. It is able to be taught and practiced in-person or over the phone with equal effectiveness.
