When one can truly see themselves, they can then be seen.

What is Relationship and Wellness Advising?
Emotional vulnerability is key. Relationship and Wellness advising allows people to understand the behavior patterns of others and take responsibility for themselves in relationships so they can access their own trajectory and natural alignment.
Austin provides a safe and inviting space in order for her clients to feel comfortable and accepted as who and where they are in life. Within an intimate space of authentic communication and encouraging introspective connection, clients begin to experience and express genuine versions of themselves as well as their desires and needs. Austin simply helps guide her clients to understand and express themselves better so they can create better internal and external relationships.
When people learn to communicate effectively and not defensively, there is an appropriate response of energy and the level of emotional intimacy and presence is increased. As a person becomes present, acceptance arrives and anxiety dissipates. When a person feels accepted and present, joy and happiness ensues. That is when change and growth occurs.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Many people associate Relationship & Wellness Coaching with being in a romantic relationship. While that is an element of the therapeutic practice, the most important relationship is with oneself. When a person transforms the relationship with themselves, their whole world is then transformed.
Most people experience deep-rooted pain and patterning resulting from early experiences. People then adapt their feelings, desires, and needs into what they think will help them “survive.” This affects a person’s ability to relate to others and themselves. Deep-seated fears and coping strategies are a driving force within many people’s personalities and experiences of the world. With guidance, understanding and the right tools, one can explore those fears and triggers and learn effective ways to communicate and address unmet needs, in order to ultimately feel more acceptance of themselves and others.
