Q. What services do you offer at Nourish Clinic?
A. I offer Holistic Life Coaching ~ an integrated mind, body, and spirit approach to helping people achieve their life dreams and goals. I use a variety of techniques to help people move past blocks and limitations and release old memories which affect our perspective on life. Just like we are what we eat, we are also what we think. According to Bruce Lipton (author of Biology of Belief) we are only operating 10% consciously in any one day, the rest of the time we are responding from an old tape looping around in our subconscious, one that was created between the ages of 0-6 years old when we were most suggestible and like little sponges. This means 90% of the time it is old conditioning that is running our lives. Much of the work I do helps target this 90% and moves people past their old childhood programming, leaving them free to create the life they would like to lead.
Q. Can you explain more about techniques you use?
A. One such technique is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) which involves talking about a problem or issue whilst tapping on Chinese acupressure points which gives the body permission to release the emotional charge locked inside. It sounds too easy to be true, however I have seen this technique time and time again create miraculous results for people, often only in one treatment. It’s a great technique for phobias, fears, traumas and any emotional issue that is for whatever reason stuck in our system. I tap along with the client. Once we’ve identified what the issue is running at the core of the problem we go through a sequence of acupressure points and peel away layer after layer until the person is left feeling completely empty of any emotional charge.
Q. Is there a principle or concept that unites your work?
A. What unites all the work I do is that first and foremost it is client led. I am not an authority on anything, other than knowing how a few techniques work and have a few energy tricks up my sleeve. I believe each of us are our own authority. We each have an ornate ability to self heal, we just need the right conditions and loving container and awareness to allow this to happen. I just help create an optimum environment in which the client can more easily make their own healing movements.
It is my belief that the healing environment is a powerful ingredient in any healing modality and indeed being held in love and compassion is often all anyone needs to feel better in themselves.
Q. What makes you so passionate about the work you do?
A. Every day I see changes in clients through the modalities I use and seeing these shifts in people, witnessing them opening up to more joy and abundance in their lives makes me feel so fulfilled. It is great to be able to follow my life’s purpose and bring my skills to help others find
peace and freedom.
Q. What is a phrase that inspires you?
A. "Argue for your limitations and they are yours" from Illusions, a book by Richard Bach.
Truly, if we settle for what is then that’s all we will get, but if we dare to demand more of life, of ourselves I believe life and providence rises up to match our intention and magic happens as a result!
Q. What brought you to Golden? Tell us a bit about yourself!
A. Originally from the UK, I emigrated to Canada with my husband in 2001 and decided to settle in Golden. After setting up and running On the Caribou Hostel (now called Caribou Hostel) for four years we sold the business and at this time I began my life coaching training and set up my business Munay Holistics. For the past 5 years I have used the sanctuary of my home to welcome people to join me in one day retreats as well as my 10 week Art of Transformation course I run in the fall. I love my work and feel blessed to now have a town presence and be a part of the Nourish team. I so enjoy collaborating with other amazing practitioners.
I love spending time in nature and hiking in the mountains and feel blessed to have such pristine beauty on our doorstep. The people of Golden are amazing and I love being a part of such a great community.
