Deepen your connection to yourself and to your inner wisdom.
In a time where we have access to so much information outside of ourselves, learning to listen to our own inner experiences has never been more important.
When you learn to listen to the language of your nervous system, and pay attention to the changes that happen within your body, you're able to recognize when you're in your patterning and conditioning around surviving, or when you're showing up in alignment with your truth.
With this awareness you'll discover space around all the fascinating ways you navigate life. Your trauma, and the burdens you carry, can be addressed with more ease. You'll awaken to having choice. And you'll find yourself more present and in flow!
Now let’s face it, we all have our ways of adapting and surviving in the world, thanks to our traumas and burdens - whether they stemmed from this lifetime, our ancestral lineage, or cultural and societal influences. What I’ve witnessed in my clients (and experienced in my own personal journey) is that the more that we connect with our wholeness, shift out of trying to fix ourselves, explore with awareness and curiosity, and have some fun in the process, the more we will organically find ourselves in flow. Connected, and living as part of the collective.
It comes down to creating awareness and space around your experience.
By creating more space, awareness and curiosity towards your internal experiences, and by shifting out of the way’s you’ve been protecting yourself, you’ll naturally find yourself living your life with more trust, grace, and ease. Your relationship to yourself, others and to the planet will deepen and become more intimate. Your impulses, instinct, intuition, and deep knowing will become clearer and will become what guides you through life. Don't get me wrong, the process can be messy and it's ongoing, but the more you explore, the more you’ll find yourself standing in your power and knowing what’s true for YOU. All of this allowing you to step more fully into what you’re meant to do here at a soul level, while having fun doing it!
WHO AM I?
Somatic Experiencing®, Feldenkrais®, Somatic Practice, Yoga, & Internal Family System Informed Practitioner
Just like you, I’m a whole and sovereign being, who also has patterns based on survival, conditioning, and impacted by our societal pressures and expectations. And like you, I’m here with purpose, to continue to evolve and live as part of the collective consciousness.
I’m a guide who supports from a place of embodied knowing, while also walking the path alongside you. My style of working is very intuitive and awareness based. I’m able to tune in to what's happening within other peoples experiences as I support them in exploring their conditioning and patterns that are often rooted in trauma, which can be anything that involves the need to survive.
My practice is a blend of modalities and I enjoy weaving the spiritual in with the science. Most importantly, how I guide others is a reflection of the knowledge I've gained through my own personal inquiries and experiences. I'm committed to supporting people in creating change at cellular and energetic levels while guiding them to listen to their own internal wisdom.
My offerings provide educational and experiential tools and practices that will move you out of survival, lead to more regulation within your nervous system, and have you recognize that you are a whole sovereign Being.
I believe that the journey is never ending for all of us and that the only way that we can make real long lasting change is by connecting into our own internal wisdom.
My dream is for people to recognize and create more space for being human in all of its complexities, from a place of wholeness and with grace.Learn More About Me!
I have participated in multiple online nervous system programs over the years and I continually come back to DISCOVER. This program offers incredible content on nervous system education and healing trauma, practical tools for daily use, and a community of shared and supportive experiences. And it’s more than just the content you’re learning; it’s what’s happening in the relational/group experiences. You will be seen for who you are, where you are, and receive support and ask questions in real time. You will not be a number on the screen listening to someone speak at you. The two weekly live calls include a facilitated Q/A or demo and one intimate small-group pod call . Each of these weekly calls develop their own personality of support and offer shared experiences with each participant. This shared space is where content of DISCOVER transforms from being skills you’re learning to an embodied experience from within yourself and the world around you.
During my time with Nicole in DISCOVER my experience or myself and my world has changed dramatically. I learned that responding to my anxiety trying to fix it or get rid of it was not doing me any good. In the 4 months we spent together doing this work I got off of my anxiety medication and learned of my wholeness. Learning of my wholeness means for me that I am aware of and feel whole. My whole life I have felt broken and fragmented. Nothing has ever helped with that. I love somatic experiencing with Nicole.
If you are feel you are in a place where other modalities or treatments haven't wholly delivered, and you are feeling like there is more under the surface that what counselling, or other therapies is getting to, that this course is an incredible way to learn about yourself, to share with others and to receive an extraordinary kind of support while doing it. Very different and arguably much more impactful than self-help, and impactful in a different way than 1-1 therapy or modalities. It has also helped equip me to put a lot of this into more regular practice, rather than to wait until I have an 'SOS' moment.
Love, safety, connection, care and presence have been what I’ve had the gift of experiencing in the Expand program over the last year. The rooted, unwavering and gentle presence of Nicole provided the conditions to surrender to deep intimacy with the other practitioners in the group, which lead to deep healing and growth. I have moved through layers of my trauma and burdens that have provided a freedom and ease within me that I will be forever grateful for. To experience Nicole’s capacity to hold with love the sneaky and wonderful ways that survival patterns show up is the biggest gift I believe someone could give themselves. When I think back to when I first started SE with Nicole I have so much gratitude for how much patience she has had with me. To slowly, bit by bit, bring me back into my body and away from the vortex of the story has allowed me to be with myself and others in a much more authentic and whole way, and being and breathing in life in that way, where it can be received without fear is everything.
Low-self esteem, racing thoughts, hyper-awareness, fear of connection, feeling like I don't belong, wondering why I keep myself busy-busy? DISCOVER allowed me the time and space to go inward. Time to explore those parts of myself that I keep hidden- the parts that feel broken, bad and shameful. The parts the feel unlovable and unbearable. DISCOVER allowed me to realize and feel my wholeness for the first time in my life. I was able to hold my own hand and face the parts of myself that were not safe. And I am able to sit with the discomfort now, knowing that I am whole regardless.
DISCOVER has helped me feel more grounded in myself and trust myself more. I'm no longer hit with a shot of adrenaline when I open my work email or when my landlord texts me. I've stopped wandering around with a nagging sense that I've somehow done something wrong. And, when that feeling does arise, I'm able to observe it, be curious about it, and move through it (rather than believing it!). Since participating in DISCOVER, it's become easier to ask for what I need and stand up for myself, even when it feels uncomfortable.
Nicole has helped me view whatever comes up as part of the experience of being human. Looking at my experience from a nervous system perspective feels vital to me. I am leaving behind ideas of getting things wrong. My body is intelligent and why would I continue choosing not to listen? Why would I seperate what I think is right for me and what my body tells me is right for me? Maybe they can be the same. Thank you Nicole for your great explanations, metaphors, reflection questions and gentle response.
