Josie Coco is an experienced relational life coach and psychotherapist for anyone wishing to live well and wanting to find their way on their unique path. She will be the relational support that you may need or never really experienced, and will explore with you to find the obstacles that limit your ability to live life fully. Always at your pace.
How your life is impacted now in the aftermath of life experiences and adverse experiences repeated over time in childhood or adulthood, is a key area of interest for Josie.
Her work is evidenced informed. She is a trauma informed relational coach and therapist who understands the body's responses to stress, and how to support her clients to recalibrate their nervous system, which in turn supports all body systems, for more ease and overall wellness and success in their life.
Since 2010 Josie has been working in the field of Energy Psychology with an interest in how our body stores memories and how these memories inform our actions and reactions. In 2020 she qualified with a Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy to further this work.
"We want to feel that we belong in our families, our workplaces and our communities.
We want to be engaged and supported in meaningful activities which may include our work and our recreational time.
Too often we find ourselves disconnected and isolated. Yet we know we are wired for good relationships.
We can become whole and joyfully alive.
Our work together is a life-changing, life-affirming experience."
- Josie Coco
Josie has a deep understanding of how our mind, body, the body's energies and emotions influence each other. Gleaned through study, curious enquiry, investigation of meditative practices and personal experiences, this knowledge enables Josie to practice with wisdom in an wholistic manner.
Her studies have honed her ability to "be with" clients own intelligence and resilience, instead of taking an instructor role.
As well as focussing her work on one-on-one client care as she builds her practice, Josie is available to facilitate group and relational intelligence coaching both in the community and in organisations.
For those who are committed to driving for success in their interests and in life, Josie offers a mentoring / life coaching programme, Towards Self-Mastery. Towards Self-Mastery supports you to know yourself deeply, and to discover what drives your decisions and choices, responses and reactions today, so that you can adjust and align with the life that you want.
As a career midwife of almost 20 years, Josie came to know the resilience of the human spirit.
Her entrepreneurial journey of a further 20 years with founding 2 successful SMEs informed Josie of the demands of business or career, and the personal challenges of meeting our aspirations, our goals and our needs. She brings the wisdom of experience to her work.
