What is Burnout?

Burnout is the loss of meaning in one’s work, life, and relationships coupled with mental, emotional, or physical exhaustion as the result of long-term, unresolved stress.

Burnout can affect anyone, however, there is a growing number of professional women, entrepreneurs, business owners, and caregivers who are reporting symptoms of burnout. General symptoms of burnout include:

Lower resistance to illness
Pessimistic outlook on work or life
Low or excessive appetite
Physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion
Feeling disconnected or isolated
Demotivation and detachment from your work and aspirations
Depleted energy levels
Forgetfulness/ Brain fog
Detachment in personal relationships

Who is most affected by it?

High-performing individuals and those who act as caregivers are the most affected by burnout. Women, especially career women, are at high risk due to the double leadership roles they play as professionals and central family figures.

What does somatic coaching mean?

Somatic coaching gives you the answers for the areas of your life where you’ve been stuck.

The word Soma refers to the body. My coaching works with a bottom-up approach based on trauma-informed modalities. This means that the work starts from the body, nervous system, sensory input, and feelings first, to then access and change the brain. This process helps you gently and progressively release old unprocessed stress and upgrade your inner programming.

The missing link in burnout recovery is the activation of your somatic defense. Not including embodiment is frustrating because even though you may want something consciously, your body and emotions may be resisting it unconsciously.

Ignoring body-brain intelligence is not sustainable and it becomes exhausting and demoralizing in the long run. A somatic approach builds a new stress-resilient and energized life from the building blocks of your own psychological and biological connections.

A midlife shift out of burnout and dissatisfaction

Shifting the conditioning from the first half of our lives is incredibly important for women after their 40s because this is the time for wisdom, self-actualization, and inner listening. Ignoring this call is the cause of much unnecessary pain.

I focus on the intersection of midlife, burnout, and dissatisfaction because, in midlife, there is an inner alarm letting you know that you can’t keep spinning your wheels trying to figure out things on your own. At this point in your life, you do not have years to spend on trial and error, searching for a miracle or postponing the inner work.

You have probably heard this internal alarm go off, the one that has a sense of urgency to pay attention to what matters. Before your 40s you may have been able to ignore this but now it shows up in every area you have neglected like your health, your relatiohsips, your career, or your self-worth. This alarm is trying to stop you from having a midlife crisis. 

My goal is to help you avoid missing this crucial time. The midlife “rite of passage” can bring you so much peace, joy, and internal satisfaction. I am here to help women end the fatigue, confusion, and repeating of old coping patterns with a comprehensive answer because this void can mix with pre-menopause and menopause symptoms becoming chronic by settling strongly within your chemistry and neurobiology.

Instead of getting burned out or having a midlife crisis, I wish for you to enter a midlife awakening. That is what this program is about.

Your body has a built in system you can learn to use and that’s why the results last! Are you ready to come out of burnout? Are you willing to step in and get “unstuck”? If you answered yes, then this is your call to shine!

You will be empowered and nurtured. This is not a temporary plan. This is the missing link in stress management: The activation of your somatic defense.
