“Basic intelligence is what is revealed after the defences are let go.”

Chogyam Trungpa

BODY CENTRED COACHING consists on an holistic approach to stress release or body-mind connection, mainly based on the principles of somatic experiencing (Trauma Healing), combined with chi kung, intuitive coaching, energy touch and pre and perinatal awareness.

HOW DOES IT WORK? Every single being possesses an organic intelligence, which supports the return to equilibrium. However, when events are too overwhelming humans might not be able to process them internally and then, they get stuck and freeze. This defensive state when left unresolved, can uproot human consciousness from the physical-energy body, causing weakness in the immune system, disempowerment and ultimately, separation from what is natural and life-giving in one’s being.

Through a unique combination of diverse approaches and experiential knowledge, Raquel encourages the moment-to-moment awareness of oneself, enhancing the safe regulation of the overcharged nervous system and supporting the innate healing processes to take place. She supports, in the context of a heart-based relationship, the embodied presence of thoughts, feelings, behaviours, energy and body-sensations as they come and go, renegotiating new meanings and coherent physiological states and enhancing the movement from separation to wholeness.
