In this session, our speaker will introduce you to somatic coaching. A transformative process, somatic coaching holds that the body and who you are as a person, the self, are inextricably linked and by working through the body we can directly work with the self. Somatics sees the body, the human form, as the unified space in which we act, perceive, think, feel, sense, express emotions and mood. It holds our lived experience and defines our way of being in the world.
Somatic coaching treats the body as a fundamental place of change, learning, and transformation Specifically we will: • Learn about the relationship between the “body” and the “self” • Explore how somatic awareness increases our capacity to tune in to our clients • Notice our habitual patterns of response as they show up in the body • Learn a specific practiceto bring ourselves present. Our speaker Dr Eunice Aquilina of eaconsult Eunice Aquilina is a certified somatic coach with Strozzi Institute who, prior to setting up her own consultancy, had over 20 years organisational experience working with individuals and leadership teams in complex commercial environments with multiple perspectives and pressures tackling major transitions.

She works in partnership with a range of global clients, to co-create learning solutions which support them to learn from real issues in real time, building new skills and behaviours for sustainable outcomes.
