Resilience Coaching Clinic

One of the most common positive consequences of life after a pandemic is an increased awareness of the importance of our social connections!

However, it has also become increasingly evident that, as convenient as these platforms are, social media and online classes are getting in the way of our authentic social connections. As a response to this I have designed a 4-week Resilience Coaching Clinic.


My aim is to create a safe space for a small group of individuals to connect in an educational, fun, inclusive, non-judgemental environment.

As we come to terms with the ‘new normal’ there has never been a more important time to identify ways to build on our sense of Resilience.


‘The Clinic’ is designed with our innate human needs of feeling connected, feeling valued and having autonomy, in mind.

During this course I will draw on approaches from psychology, counselling, and my Movement for Trauma training to help you achieve transformational change in your life.

During the first 4 weeks you will: 

  • Learn to recognise your emotions as valuable sources of information

  • Gain an understanding of your motivations, values, and needs

  • Identify ways to build personal resilience

  • Understand that your thoughts may be distorted or irrational. Together we will challenge these mal-adaptive thought patterns. We will reflect on actions and consequences and experiment with adopting new, more adaptive beliefs in response to life’s challenging events.

  • More importantly we will explore the wisdom of the poly-vagal theory and gain an understanding of how your nervous system responds to stress.

  • We will explore the importance of involving the body to change outdated survival and coping strategies

  • We will explore mindful movement techniques to create sensations of strength and power as experimenting with our habits through movement can have a powerful impact on our feelings of worthiness.


During this coaching clinic I draw from my training as a counsellor, personal experience, and intuition. The Clinic is tailored and adopted each week to the energy and changing needs of the group. I will mentor and provide support to the group from the time of booking until 12th May. You will have the option to join the Resilience Community on completion of the course.

During our time together we will explore psychological theories, exercises and assessment tools that will help guide you on a journey of personal growth.

The first Clinic launches on Thursday 24th March 10:30 am - 12 pm and will run on Thursday mornings for 4-weeks on 31st March. 7th & 14th April 10:30 am – 12 pm. We will all return on Thursday 12th May for a 1-hour group check-in at 10:30 am, this will be a small celebration ceremony and a chance to catch up.

On completion of this programme, you will gain:

  • Increased sense of self

  • Improved health and well-being

  • Self-acceptance and insight into your strengths

  • Greater well-being, increased hope

  • Decreased stress

  • Benefits of being part of a group coaching programme include;

  • Shared wisdom of the group

  • Development of support and trust

  • Heightened emotional intelligence

  • Feeling energised by one another

  • Learning from the group’s collective wisdom, networking, brainstorming, and learning from shared experience

Hi, I am Louise, Qualified Counsellor (MBACP) delivering personal and group coaching services through the lens of the Biopsychosocial Model. Working under the mentorship of a BACP accredited supervisor. I am delighted to bring my study & training to The Den.


I currently deliver my work through the lens of the Biopsychosocial Model, which considers the complex interconnection between biology, psychology, and socio-environmental factors. I believe that self-harming behaviours that seem nonadaptive in our adult lives and relationships have been, at some point in our lives, an adaptation to help us endure the tough things we had to go through. I have compassion for what lies beneath the appearance human beings present to the world. I believe that to be the best version of ourselves it involves claiming back the power of our intuition. I am passionate about guiding humans back to their innate resilience and power. 


I blend theory and technique from cognitive, humanistic, and psychodynamic therapies into my workshops. More importantly, I include body orientated ideas and interventions that promote empowerment and feelings of ‘I’ve got this’.

My own body has been the research for the Recover your Power workshop. Tools and interventions included are shared from my training with Jane Clapp. Jane is an advanced candidate with the Ontario Association of Jungian Analysts and has worked as a movement coach and embodiment educator for over two decades
