Ecosomatic Coaching for Individuals and Couples

I work with individuals and couples who find themselves in situations where life is requiring something different from them; where change, transformation, or new embodied skills are being asked for.

I work with individuals and couples seeking change. There are those who are happy and look ahead seeing the need or desire to be better or different, and there are those whose lives are not satisfying or are in breakdown and want change. I work with people looking for sustainable change in their lives, not just a short-term fix. At any point in our lives, related to what we want our lives to be like, we can find ourselves wanting to be or needing to be a different kind of person.

So what is needed to be more fulfilled and satisfied in life?

Depth is one of the keys. My coaching assists people wanting to create depth in life. It is through depth that we can feel and understand our calling and purpose. It is through depth that we build stronger connections with others, and a stronger connection to the life that surrounds us.

Working with Mark truly proved to be life changing. Before I began working with him, I was driven by deep feelings of fear and inadequacy. Through our work together I have been able to embody a calm and self-assured presence that allows me to not just succeed, but enjoy life. He helped me develop the skills and understanding that I needed to encounter each new step along the journey with joy and passion. I don’t know what I would have done without him. –Tammy Bowcutt, Leadership Coach

Mark is a masterful teacher and coach. In courses I have the privilege of facilitating with him, he is able to focus 1-1 with a participant and with laser-like precision he helps them unlock the deepest challenge that has been blocking their success and satisfaction. In those moments he can change the trajectory of their life. They are inevitably most grateful. –Beth Davis, Principal, Learnings for Leaders

INDIVIDUAL COACHING

Individual CoachingAre you ready to have a different life? Do you want to have more depth, have a greater sense of freedom, create work/life balance in a sustainable way? Do you want to change the outcomes of your personal interactions to help further your goals both professionally and personally?

What would your life be like if you were able to create positive attractions for yourself? What would happen if you became less reactive and more able to respond to stimulating situations in a positive, generative way?

Regardless of the specifics of our work together, you will come away with:

  • A deeper sense of self-regard and accomplishment
  • Self-wisdom for better choices
  • A personal depth from which to access more wisdom and heart
  • And deeper connection to what is important for you
  • A friendlier and more workable relationship with your past
  • A deeper and richer connectability to yourself and others
  • A greater balance between the being self and the doing self
  • A deeper connection to the world around us

Coaching sessions for individuals

I work with directly with individuals and contract through organizations. There are a number of different ways to be coached:

  • Individual sessions: Sessions are scheduled individually. Each session is approximately 1 hour and reciprocation happens per session. Sliding scale offered.
  • Multi-session series: A number of sessions, 6 to 12, are purchased at the beginning of the series. Within this number of sessions, a promise for a certain process of change will be made. Sliding scale offered.
  • Integrated approach: In the integrated approach, a time period such as six months to one year is chosen for our work together. Specific, so this will be made for the time period. This could include visits into one’s work world, phone or Skype calls, and in-person hands-on sessions could be included.

I am also available to come to your location to work with you. At times travel for individuals is not an option. Being on-location also allows me to assess your work or personal environment and offers context for your life while doing our work together. This can be especially useful in the work environment to see how you work on teams or as a leader in your organization.

COUPLES COACHING

“To be fully seen by somebody and be loved anyhow — this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”― Elizabeth Gilbert

Couples coachingIs your relationship not quite what you expected? Is it feeling stale and uninteresting? Are you looking for more in your relationship? Are you in a life transition such as having children, becoming an empty-nester, work transition, health issues? These situations require an examination of existing habits, practices and behaviors for new life situations.

How would it be for you to be more independent within your relationship? To insure balance in power and money? To live in the fire and passion that you deserve? To be fully supported as a unique individual inside of an intimately close relationship? To use your relationship as path?

Regardless of the specifics of our work together, you will come away with:

  • Deeper connection with your partner
  • More depth as an individual and as a couple
  • Understanding of and freedom from the influence of individual histories
  • Practices for having difficult conversations
  • An understanding of individual strengths and limitations for a more powerful relationship

“Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can’t figure out what from.” ― Mae West

I have been in relationship with my life partner for 36 years. For the last 24 years we have used our relationship as a path for our individual, collective and spiritual growth. I bring this wealth of life experience and practice to my work with you.

There is also an opportunity for us to work with you couple to couple. My partner, Madeline Wade, is a powerful somatic coach and has worked with individuals for the past 16 years.
