I’m more upbeat and look forward to learning more about improving my health
Angie’s 1st Session
I’ve been having terrible exhaustion with some depression. I felt no way out of it.
Linda made me feel comfortable immediately. She understands my concerns with my health and the way my body looks. She is an example of someone who walks the talk. She, herself, had improved her own health. I knew I could do the same.
Linda has a wealth of knowledge and experience that I didn’t have.
She’s in excellent shape for a mother of 5 children. She gave me input about my posture and helped me with proper breathing. T-Tapp is the only exercise I do and having a stable foundation is important before one progresses to other T-Tapp workouts. Linda let me know that slower workouts are fine until my core is stronger and I’m able to activate the correct muscles.
She also gave me resources on alternative ways to treat my thyroid. And I never knew that hitting my head could affect my Vagus Nerve which can cause digestion to not work properly. Vagus means “wanderer” because it wanders to other important organs. Linda’s given me a list of ways to stimulate the Vagus Nerve in order to improve vagal tone.
In our first coaching session, some things that Linda taught me were that:
Blood sugar, toxins, digestive issues, thyroid medications not correct, or posture can cause fatigue. I’ve always blamed menopause. Deep breathing and correct posture are great for giving energy and lifting my mood. I’m more upbeat and look forward to learning more about improving my health.
Linda made me feel supported and empowered. When I talked to her, she got where I was coming from.
Linda provided me links to specific resources that I could use to help me progress in improving my energy levels and my overall health. I feel more motivated to change the way I eat and move. I’m also learning about detoxing my body in order for my hormones to work more efficiently. My cell phone is no longer in my bedroom due to emitting of radiation.
I’ve benefited by getting an education from Linda. She offers sources about issues I never knew could affect the health of people.
It’s up to the person to find what works for them.
Angie’s 2nd Session
I can say a most valuable resource to change unwanted behaviors and progress in life is having a coach like Linda. Experiencing negative emotions is hard enough. When my physical and spiritual being felt like they were in a war zone every day, it was better to address it all.
Linda was the right person to help me come to terms with how I got into the situation with my family. I’d been down this path before and it only invited one problem after the other.
There was no downtime for me to recover from dealing with a family member who was sick. I was losing myself and my goals.
I saw my life passing me by and who I helped was no better. With ease and grace, Linda steered me in the right direction. It feels good to use my time for what I love. Another important issue is being able to see how my emotions have affected my body.
I needed clarity in issues dealing with family members. My past and present behavior wasn’t serving me nor them at all.
Linda helped me realize that I was repeating an old pattern of people pleasing.
With boundaries, I am able to stand outside of a family situation and not try to fix it. I have every right to say “no”, too.
In turn, this helps my family stand on their own and learn how to take care of themselves.
I also needed some physical support with my body. Linda sent me some wonderful exercises along with some breathing.
I was greatly helped when Linda told me that I was repeating an old pattern concerning my family. That was powerful enough for me to drop a lot of negative emotions and put up boundaries when dealing with family members. I do not have to answer my phone every time it rings. I do not have to respond right away to a message. I do not have to take responsibility for others. When I was able to let go of all of it I gained more energy! I have been tired 3 years. This past weekend I deep cleaned my house! I was also helped tremendously when Linda sent me breathing exercises in order to gain rib mobility and open up the mid back where I have some stuck vertebrae. For the first time, I’m able to connect with my pelvic floor as I breathe in and out. Also, my mid back is moving better! I can feel my body expanding with each breath as I’m releasing fears which have held my body These exercises will always be a part of my life!
I feel so empowered by Linda’s coaching and her gentle manner. Linda has supported me 100% in the decisions I’ve made to get back to living my life without guilt. She’s truly cares!
Linda has provided me with encouragement and motivation. I have a safe space to express my feelings about what’s going on when dealing with family members or other issues.
I’m much more motivated to change my past behaviors and do what helps me grow.
Linda offers educational resources such as books that deal with my current situation.
She gave me great information on breathing and the vagus nerve, both of which have a powerful affect on our well-being.
She also sent me stretching and strengthening exercises to help some old physical issues.
She’s given me many options to explore in order to see what works for me.
Through working with Linda, I’ve been able to see what my emotions and resistance to being around family has done to me, physically and spiritually. Depression, anxiety, and being tired have plagued me because I needed boundaries.
What has benefited me the most in having Linda as my coach is she gets where I’m coming from. She has addressed every concern I’ve had.
I have a safe space to speak with extreme honesty.
Linda has helped me get back to what feeds my soul and that is having prayer time, stillness in my favorite chair, writing, and a body that moves freely.
Angie’s 3rd Session
My coaching experience with Linda has shifted me to a higher place in my life.
Menopause had worn me down and I knew there had to be a better way to look at this major life change. I needed to get out of the rut I was in.
I no longer see menopause as a bad thing. It’s a phase that I’ll get through. I’m much more focused and excited about each day.
Linda is an example of how I wanted to be.
She’s given me emotional, physical, and spiritual support.
It’s refreshing to have a coach who cares about me improving my life and my health.
Linda understands where I’m coming from and is open and honest and so supportive that it has helped me make some huge changes.
One major change is getting my anxiety level down enough to where my nerve pain left.
Linda’s encouragement and wealth of knowledge of what affects our mind and bodies has led me to a better way of living.
The mental, physical, and spiritual aspects, for me, needed to be addressed.
Linda offers wonderful resources and I plan on using them all, day by day.
Now, I flow through the day instead of stumble around. My focus has improved enough that I decluttered my office.
I have more energy and feel inspired each day.
With Linda’s coaching, I’ve completely felt empowered, supported and cared about.
I can speak up for myself without feeling guilty.
I feel empowered to work on my goals.
Linda cares because she understand exactly where I’m coming from.
I want to be as educated and in control of my health as much as possible.
Linda also provided me with valuable health (resources) that can help my body repair itself safely from the years of being on medications.
I am very grateful to Linda for accepting me where I was at. I was having nerve pain and in limbo.
Linda’s coaching support has helped my anxiety levels go down enough to where I have no nerve pain.
I was tired of taking medications, because I didn’t know the long-term effects they’d have on my health.
Linda supported my decision to be honest with my doctor and stand my ground.
I was able to do it and my doctor’s response was supportive of my needs.
Linda also guided me gently to some natural ways to help my pain and anxiety.
I never knew a (specific mineral) could help my pain and anxiety.
I still have more to learn but I’m taking things day by day.
