Life presents us with challenges, events and feelings that may require us to tap into our inner resources, examine or re-examine who we are, what we are doing and why. How we meet these moments determines how we grow and evolve, which paths and relationships we need to let go of and which we want to nourish. The calling to find our own unique authentic voice and how to express that in the world becomes powerful and beckoning.
As an Integral professional coach I assist you in identifying and articulating your values and how to manifest them in a more tangible way. Powerful questions, deep listening and designing a specific program of practices uniquely for you to support you throughout the process of expanding your awareness and growth makes this work particularly effective. You will be able to discover and cultivate new options and capacities through the unique work of integral coaching. This particular approach to coaching is based on philosopher Ken Wilber’s work and is known as one of the most powerful integrated, in-depth and advanced approaches to human development.
What you will learn: after each session you will be given a set of practices ranging from reflections, meditation practices, Yoga postures or reading assignments to support your intention.
Support materials: Practice Instructions in the forms of handouts and audio recordings are accessible on the password protected resources page.

– seeking support, inspiration, and clarity when going through a life transition

Integral Coaching sessions are 1hr long and are followed by a detailed e-mail with a personalized program design. A sequence of 6 – 8 sessions over 4-5 months is usually recommended. To explore and clarify a direction and resolution in times of transition a one-time 90 minute session is also available.
Sessions take place at MaLa Contemplative Space at Healing Waters, 542 Quaker Road, East Aurora, NY.

” Through my coaching work with Felicitas I have learned to be a friend to myself: to allow self-compassion and to accept myself as I am, warts and all. This softening has caused a profound rippling effect in my life and a seismic shift in the way I perceive myself and my place in the world. I am now able to see myself objectively: I recognize the unconscious defenses and habitual behaviors that once served me but now, in fact, hold me back from engaging with life. With her ever-present sensitivity, humor, compassion, and non-judgment, Felicitas has skillfully challenged me to change my habitual patterns and venture outside my comfort zone. I now know that a whole world of possibility and growth awaits. My coaching journey has been transformative. Thank you, Felicitas ! “ Susan W.
“Since I have began working with Felicitas I see the world and myself in it through completely different eyes. I have learned so much, mostly about myself. Felicitas guided me so gracefully to help me see that I have everything within me that I need. Her guidance was tailored specifically to me, giving me the tools I needed to break through barriers that I didn’t even realize I had built. This has truly been a life changing experience for me. I have found what I was looking for years, and I didn’t know what I was looking for until I found it. Thank You.” Lisa S.
“I so appreciated that you were supportive, and that I never felt diminished or judged by you. Your insight were always “spot on”, and you were able to hone in on what the true issues were. You’re kindness and acceptance were very healing for me. You have a gift for looking inside someone’s Heart/soul and seeing and sensing what’s going on there.The experience exceeded my expectations in all ways.I loved the “spirit guides” that you gave me. It was something concrete for me to use when I was having trouble to changing my perspective. You also gave me hope, and helped me to accept my situation as it is, and find the positives in that.I would definitely recommend Integral Coaching to others, perhaps even more than traditional counseling.I would say that the experience blends the concrete practicality of cognitive behavioral therapy and the spirituality/ emotional support that I have not experienced anywhere else, that has helped me start to recover some joy in my life, even though things are far from perfect.” Karin M.
