Please allow yourself time and space to be with your questions. Feel free to contact us with more questions.
My coaching philosophy is based on the belief that every individual has the power to achieve their goals and create the life they desire. I work with clients to identify their strengths and values, and help them create a plan of action to achieve their desired outcomes. I help clients meet and understand their nervous system, and guide people into effective ways of working with what arises.
I work with clients from all walks of life who are committed to personal growth and achieving their goals. Some of my clients are seeking career advancement, while others are looking to improve their relationships or find greater fulfillment in life. I work closely with clients around deep seated trauma and chronic stress conditions, as well as recovery from behavior patterns and chemical dependency.
I'm not going to tell you what to do.
I will follow you, or walk beside you. I'll encourage you to maintain contact with your curiosity, and might ask you, "what is the follow through, what happens next?" I have a background in Somatic Experiencing, transformative coaching and working with psychedelic preparation and Integration.
If you are using psychedelic medicine we can use these ways of seeing and noticing to help build a fuller experience. Preparation and integration philosophy can be used in many ways outside of psychedelic medicine as well.
I have a deep curiosity of human behavior and motivation, and I'll meet you there. I believe that true change comes not just from setting and achieving goals, but from understanding the underlying beliefs and patterns that may be holding us back.
I also commit to bringing a compassionate and non-judgmental approach to every coaching session. We can explore options that best work for you and your nervous system.
‘This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.’ ~W. Shakespeare
No. The process is not the same for everyone. Results, in great part, depend on your readiness to look within and get real with the ways you notice and respond to conditions in your life. We work at your speed and depth, and we offer encouragement to dig a little deeper when indicated.
As a transformative coach, it is important to help you identify the right tools that are going to work for you. Some people are ready to go in fully, some people need what we consider 'titration', a few drops at a time, going into the mind spaces, emotions, felt senses, and physical and spiritual sensations very slowly. These ways within you can also change from day to day. Sometimes it's full send, sometimes it's gentler, noticing and being curious to discover what's all really here in this mind/body/space/world/soul/relationships we exist in. You will discover what works, and I will follow your lead. I will act as an accountability partner if needed, if you feel like you are moving too slow, or not at all.
An addiction is any pattern of behavior that you crave that gives you temporary pleasure or relief in the short term, but negative consequences in the long term, that you still persistent in despite those negative consequences. This does not necessarily include drugs or alcohol. Many behaviors can provide us a moment of temporary pleasure or relief in the short term, but negative consequences in the long term.
"Addiction is not a primary brain disease. Addiction does not start with the brain, addiction starts with the circumstances that shape the brain." ~ Dr. Gabor Mate
These behaviors are a persons attempt to solve a problem.
At Stay Tuned Therapeutics, I, Geoffrey, am trained in working with clients who have experienced early childhood traumas, inescapable attack, medical trauma, falls/high impact/crashes, physical abuse, sexual trauma, self inflicted trauma (cutting, addiction, relational, emotional states). Somatic Experiencing, hands on bodywork, psychedelic medicines, and transformative coaching can all be useful tools in these areas when indicated.
Neuroception is an act of noticing, and describes how the nervous system takes in information below the level of our conscious awareness via three pathways: inside our body, outside our body, and in-between our body systems. Feeling what it feels like. As humans, we can look and feel deeper into these sensations, and ways of noticing, we can develop the appropriate responses the more we become familiar and practice with these felt sensations. There is a way of practicing, there is a way of becoming more familiar, there is a way of discovering what feels good, or better than normal, in our nervous system.
Again, I'm not going to tell you what to do. I will follow you, or walk beside you. As we visit, and you notice what arises in the ways of feeling and seeing, typically there is a knowing, some desire, of what you need to do. People name that. Resourcing helps develop a felt sense of real options for follow through. Something that feels right, something you feel drawn to. We notice, this (can) will lead you to an action plan, and the required follow through. Plans and ideas are a dime a dozen, it's the follow through that matters most, we work together in ways to get that solid ground under your feet in this world of ever changing opportunities.
Again, the first step would be to notice when confusion is present, and not be too proud to admit when we feel confused with what's here, in our lives, our relationships. This event of noticing, in any moment, seems to open a pathway to curiosity and opens a way for us to develop appropriate response. "Compassion for confusion" is a response, and may have a felt sense of enough time and space in the moment to allow continued curiosity to develop. Staying in curiosity seems to be an effective way for compassion to develop, to allow for a closer relationship with understanding, if even in a small way, some elements, of confusion within ourself and others. If we can develop enough understanding for other's confusion, at times, this may open compassion for others, which in reality feels a little better in our own system, and the more that builds the more that can lead us to forgiveness, perhaps, in an embodied way, a true forgiveness for ourself and others, and is generally more acceptable in our nervous system, even if the most appropriate response become a solid "no". T his may be an opportunity now, to explore "compassion for confusion", perhaps worth sticking with, and just seeing and feeling what develops. If it is frustration at times, how can we meet that?
In Somatic Experiencing®, pendulation is a process of touching what feels difficult, just the outer edge, still safe, and working back to resource. "Resource" being what feels solid, safe, and secure. This practice of intentionally moving between sensations is known to produce feelings and sensations of the embodiment of resiliency.
People often come to us with the report of no longer being able to feel joy or happiness, and they feel "weak, stuck, or broken".
Identifying the ways and the reasons in which a person feels less than positive, and gently recognizing these causes, allows the felt sensation to be present. A person can then recall a time, or a memory, or with what's here now, maybe an object in the room, a new pair of shoes, something pleasant that does bring a positive connection to felt sense. Moving between these realms of experience helps create resilience and can often be fun actually. It feels good to notice feeling good, and allowing the time and space for what discomfort feels like, knowing many feelings can be present all at once. We do not have to identify exclusively with any one sensation, and define our lives by any one felt experience.
Did you know, negative (threat) experience travels faster on nerves than positive experience? This is true even with perception of threat. It's an old survival trick. It used to be that positive experiences would not save our lives. I'd argue that concept at this point. Maybe, at times, we need to flip the dialog with ourselves, recognize when we are safe and there are some connections to safety available.
Noun: a tangible or visible form of an idea, quality, or feeling.
"she seemed to be a living embodiment of vitality"
I feel embodiment is taking intellectual knowledge and moving it into a very real felt sense of a way of being. A step beyond reading what works in a book, putting it into practice, whatever the "it" is in a given moment. For instance; one can practice meditation on a cushion because they read it was good for humans. They may feel this goodness on the cushion, or while they read the article. To "embody" the mindfulness lessons is to take it into the walking world, off the cushion.
These heart sensations, the acceptance, the forgiveness, can arrive as a true "felt sense", in ways of interacting with ourselves and others, deep inside, coursing through or veins and nervous system. This is embodied practice, embodiment, the "doing", not simply the understanding.
Psychedelic medicines have been implicated in the treatment of addiction, anxiety, major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and end-of-life care among others—typically complex and difficult-to-treat conditions. Many people are choosing to use these compounds on their own time as a way to explore greater healing options. Much of the current research points to the importance of working closely with a coach as a way of preparing for the the journey, seeing ways life's difficulties arise, and discover ways of working with moments.
Integration is said to be of utmost importance; a person’s success following any medicine correlates with their integration plan. Medicines often initiate and make change much easier, but to actually create long-term changes one has to make consistent commitments to change.
For those who return to their life without an integration plan, the medicinal experiences fade into dreams that never get a chance to manifest in people's lives. For those who learn how to integrate, there is no limit to how vastly profound and transformational these experiences can be in your life. These are all scenarios we are trained to work with at Stay Tuned Therapeutics. At STT, we DO NOT provide any of these medicines.
From - Being True To You.
Being True To You introduces the “continuum of transformation” model, which includes, enhances, and deepens the continuum of care model. It acts as the fabric between all transformational tools, techniques, and treatments that people are using to create positive change in their life. The continuum of transformation model helps clients achieve their greatest transformation, discover their true self and purpose for being on this planet, and helps them align with what is true for them. This may include from 2 weeks to 2 months of pre-care and 3-6 months of integrative coaching after the experience.
Yes. At Stay Tuned Therapeutics we find we find it highly valuable to work with this Continuum of Transformation concept put forth by Being True To You. Working with clients on their own goals, we help outline action steps to acheive these goals. We provide documents, forms, videos, self evaluations. We help the clients learn and discover effective ways to investigate what is working for them to move forward, and help them deepen the experience with encouragement to keep looking and showing up, for being a very active participant in their own healing journey!
We encourage clients to participate in movement, church, support groups, connect with friends, cook, find a hobby, read a book, meditate, consume less media, practice silence, notice what comes up in the body and mind in the days of the week. We encourage keeping track, journal, and so much more. This is NOT a one hour a week program. We know you are your closest healer, the best healer, and we can help you uncover the ways your wisdom is available. What will work for you?
We will not MAKE you do anything, and WE are not accountable for your healing. You have to show up, and we will meet you there.
