Lise offers Embodied Leadership and Life Coaching as a Strozzi Institute and ICF certified Somatic Coach.
Her sessions are in person and via online video.
This type of coaching works with our thinking, feeling and energetic selves, bringing our attention, habits, practices, and imagination together, to align with what deeply matters to us. It offers a path for self-generated transformation, where we embody the change we desire – becoming part of who we are every day.
By partnering with her coaching clients around what matters to them in leading their lives, families, communities, teams or organisations, she helps people deepen trust in their being-ness by integrating the emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual realms through embodied practices. Together, through conversation and physical practices (that you can easily learn virtually via video), we work to align your body and mind – retraining your nervous system – to support how you want to be and what you want to do.
This body focused coaching approach can develop your presence, helping you to inspire trust and action from others. As the founding CEO of the Better Cotton Initiative, Lise found this coaching approach truly transformative in her own leadership journey in a mission driven not-for-profit.
