BODY LANGUAGE COACHING
Want to know how to show up more powerfully?
Read on to find out how a desire to improve my people skills and overcome social anxiety led to a certification in Body Language Training and me finding my way back to myself and my authentic life.
How I use Body Language Training to help you up your game...
I grew up as an overly anxious, socially awkward introvert who longed to feel comfortable in my own skin. Charming and charismatic people always fascinated me and I wondered if those were qualities that I'd ever be able to develop in myself. I always felt like an oddball and a misfit, and I wondered if I'd ever find my place in the world. I didn't exactly embrace life. I give you Exhibit A...
I thought I'd finally found my happy place when I joined the fire service back in 1992. Although I spent over 25 years in the fire service, my insecurities got the best of me even in the world of fire that I loved so deeply. I often felt like didn't fit in and still fought feelings that something was missing, or that I was missing some colossal element of life that everyone else seemed to understand.
When I was an instructor at our provincial fire college (a career highlight), I fought underlying feelings of not being good enough and felt like an imposter, but I became aware of something that instantly helped me feel more confident, which was HUGE for a shy introvert such as myself. Something as simple as adjusting my posture created a noticeable shift in how I was feeling and therefore how I presented myself. Chin up, shoulders down and suddenly I felt more in control. It allowed me to be present in the moment and connect with people authentically and organically. Who knew that my body language could have such an impact on my overall wellbeing and how I showed up in the world? Not me!
However, the more confident I felt in my job, the louder the little voice inside got, telling me this wasn't it. I didn't know what "it" was, but I knew this wasn't it. I had no idea at the time that a new career path was soon to follow. Was I in my happy place or just trying to make it look like I was in my happy place? Something still wasn't right. I wasn't living an authentic life.
When I learned to use the Power of Body Language to communicate from my authentic self (something I'd always struggled with) rather than sending mixed signals (which I was unintentionally doing all the time), I went from being so confused I didn't even know what I wanted to having 100% faith in myself and my decisions. Harnessing my own body language and my internal and external communication was one of the powerful tools I used to change my life.
And it's something that YOU have within you.
If you feel like you're not living your truth or you're missing out on your life, I have good news. This is your AUTHENTIC life beckoning you forward. The real YOU.
I can help you reconnect with the REAL you so that you can take back control of your life and live every day in a way that empowers you and increases your confidence to a point where no one would believe you ever struggled with it. Live your truth by harnessing your innate power to go within and align your internal and external worlds.
One on One Coaching
When I discovered the Science of People and their Body Language Trainer Certification program, I knew I'd found the key to unlocking my authentic self and my hidden superpower. I received certification as a trainer in April 2018 and I've continued to study the science of nonverbal and human behaviour. I'm fascinated by the way our emotions have direct access to, and influence over, what our body is doing and the messages we're sending whether we're aware of it or not. Simple things like your posture for example...
This pic just makes me feel ....blaaaah, and the longer I look at it, the worse it gets. How much time do you spend in this position? Either at work or at home. We ALL do it! What message do you think you're sending to yourself and to others when you spend the majority of your time slouched over like that? I am powerful and confident and in control? Not likely! I feel blaaah. I am blaaah. I look blaaah is more like it.
If you're looking for a simple, effective and super powerful way to boost your confidence, or to know yourself better and communicate more effectively, or to bring out your best qualities (because you definitely have a ton of them!) then look no further. If you're dreaming of living an authentic life, you're in the right place.
