Somatic Attachment Trainer, Certified Life Coach, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner
When people are in their last moments of life, what’s important becomes clear. What will you think about?
Quantitative studies have shown that during the last moments of life people don’t think about their material possessions or other more superficial preoccupations, rather they think about the quality of their relationships and ways they could have deepened them. It is too easy to put off growth, day after day, until there is no more time. The best time to act is now!
What is the most important investment in your life?
In the somatic process you will get a road map for your nervous system’s functioning, how it has been deeply shaping your daily life in unconscious ways, and you will learn what to do about it. The transformational process works by first setting the initial conditions that expand your capacity (the setting you up for success phase), and then allows you to rewire your nervous system so you can thrive.
Therapy focuses on insight and can be limiting in building a thriving life. Insight can feel good but it does not equal change. The somatic and attachment systems has been scientifically shown to work on deeper levels of the brain. What that means for you is a more efficient process that has more lasting change.
There are a designated number of reduced rate spots for therapists and students in trainings Daniel presents or assists at.
