The brain and body systems that process emotions are intimately connected with the hormonal apparatus, the nervous system, and in particular the immune system.
Emotional stress is a major cause of physical illness, from cancer to autoimmune conditions and many other chronic diseases.
Diagnostics don’t explain, they describe. We don’t have an autoimmune disease, a cancer, as something that would exist outside out of the body and that we’d catch, it’s an ensemble of processes the medical community agrees to call X which are happening in the body.
By working on connecting again to our true self, learning to see our coping mechanisms for what they are, all done in a compassionate way, we have great chances to lower the activity of those processes in our body.
This work is not done with one modality only, it is a holistic approach. We combine Compassionate Inquiry & coaching with a wide range of other modalities for you to implement : yoga, meditation, practicing art (making music, singing, painting…), walks in nature, and multiple forms of self care (nutrition, sleep hygiene, stress management). I provide there a great network of knowledge & resources to draw upon, based on what resonates with you.
