Why do we need Body Confidence & Well-being Coaching?

Our bodies are where we live – our physical homes throughout this lifetime. We experience our lives through our bodies. Everything we think, feel, say or believe is felt in our bodies, linked to our minds and woven through to our spirits. We are fantastic, amazing human beings and yet for many people their bodies have become a forgotten land. A place that feels alien, disconnected or simply not ‘good enough!”
 
Never before have so many felt so disconnected and out of love with their bodies and their lives. It is time for a revolution and evolution in the way that we relate to ourselves and to others.
Just look around and you’ll see the evidence of broken relationships with the most important person in our lives – our self! You will see it in the tattered dreams people have left behind – not feeling good enough to pursue them. You will find evidence of it in how people talk about themselves and others. You will see it in the media with the endless obsession with “perfection.” You will notice it in the confusion about what to eat and even in what to wear as more and more people feel out of touch and out of love with their authentic wonderful selves
This sense of disconnection is causing untold problems in the way in which we inhabit our bodies, our lives and the planet. When we fail to truly look after and care for ourselves and feel good about who we are, the knock on effect this has is huge. It is stated that 80% of visits to the Doctor are stress related. It is my belief that much of this stress could be avoided if we can truly learn to manage our inner environment, change our lifestyle (even in the smallest of ways) and take responsibility for our happiness, well-being and health. In order to do this we fundamentally have to like, accept and approve of who we are. Just doing this creates a new perception in the relationship we have with ourselves and opens the doors for people to live their very best, happiest and healthiest lives. 
 
Body Confidence & Well-being is essential to living your BEST and HAPPIEST life. Having Life & Body Confidence are the two most vital ingredients for living the life you were always destined to live – happy, fulfilled, creative, joyful, healthy and full of vitality and energy and most of all LOVE & PASSION in just being YOU!.
