I hear stuff like this a lot…
“What do you actually do?”
“Are you a coach?”
“Oh…so you’re a healer!”
I have a few different answers to the “What do you do?” question when it relates to the podcast, content, Wild Soul Movement, my platform and online programs, but when it comes to 1:1 work, it’s a bit more complex because the work is a synthesis of several modalities.
I made the video above to speak to that a bit more, but for those who aren’t into videos and need some notes, here you go:
Technically I do not give my 1:1 a title, but if I had to choose a few that could encompass the modalities, “coach,” “healer,” “mentor,” “consultant,” or “guide” could work.
To me, what it’s called is much less important than the results and outcomes we get together.
The work occurs at the places where HEALING, GROWTH, LEADERSHIP and CREATIVITY intersect and intertwine.
I mentioned this in the video and actually paused before creativity because for a while I debated between using that word or SPIRITUALITY.
Ultimately I went with creativity because spirituality is actually woven through all the components. It doesn’t stand alone.
The modalities include embodiment-focused coaching, energy work, strategy, values identification, identity work, forgiveness and release work, deep emotional processing, intuitive work, spiritual practices, self care and health practices, working with cycles, rhythms and seasons (your own and the earth and cosmos), personality assessments and more.
And if I’m being super honest and not self-conscious about being judged, what you can also count on is a bit of mysticism, priestessing and some miraculous grace. (My clients and I often joke #youcantmakethisshitup.)
Because the work is infused with so many modalities, the nuance, complexity, depth, and span of what we can accomplish, create, resolve, heal and get done together is vast.
It’s really exciting, yo!
I also want to be clear, not every client needs all the things.
It doesn’t feel like what my dad calls, “squeezing 10 pounds of shit in a five pound bag.”
It feels like a carefully woven tapestry quilt made just for you, to hold you through your healing, growth, transformation, transmutation, rebirth, creative process, fulfilling your potential or whatever else might be up for you.
It feels like having access to a magic Mary Poppins bag and we pull out whatever we need as we need it.
