The Mindbody Syndrome (TMS) Chronic Pain/Chronic Symptoms Recovery Coaching
What is The Mindbody Syndrome (TMS)?
TMS (The Mindbody Syndrome) creates pain and chronic symptoms in the body as a result of mind-body processes. Our minds and bodies are part of the same system and as such, they influence one another. Contrary to what we have been led to believe by the western medical and alternative medicine models, pain and other chronic symptoms that show up in the body can actually be caused and exacerbated by processes in the brain and nervous system.
Despite what you may have been told, you CAN recover from chronic pain and symptoms!
Recovery coaching is based on the ever-evolving path that Dr. John Sarno and his predecessors have forged with the discovery of a condition that Sarno called TMS, or The Mindbody Syndrome. During coaching sessions I draw on my unique training and experience as a TMS survivor, Certified Yoga Teacher, Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE) Provider, Somatic Experiencing Provider in training, and years of providing supportive services for people with trauma, mental health concerns and substance use disorders.
Recovery Coaching addresses every aspect of TMS recovery, including:
*Understanding what TMS is, how it applies to each individual, and learning about the research that supports it
*Support and guidance for those who feel completely overwhelmed and don’t know where to start
*Help for those whose symptoms are so extreme, they don’t feel equipped to begin recovery on their own
*Encouraging the rational brain to accept that symptoms are not “physical” in nature
*Resources, tools and practices that apply to each individual’s unique situation
*Investigating and identifying the root causes of the creation and continuation of symptoms in order to extinguish them
*Reintroducing movement/exercise and getting back to normal life activities
*Handling relapse and relapse prevention
*Releasing stored stress and trauma from the nervous system that leads to TMS symptoms
Recovery coaching sessions take place via online video chat platform (Skype, Zoom, etc). In-person meetings are available for those in the Madison, WI area. Please note that in-person meetings may have associated extra costs.
I offer a free, 30-minute phone consultation for prospective new clients. There is no pressure or expectation to work with me after the consultation. The purpose is to find out if you feel comfortable with my approach and style. Please call (608)301-7906 or email to schedule.
I am committed to providing access to coaching services for all regardless of income. I fully understand that many who suffer from TMS may struggle financially due to inability to work, disability, etc. If finances are a barrier please let me know. I offer a sliding scale and trade/barter options. Don't be shy to ask for what you need! I am happy to work something out and it is my intention to help anyone who can benefit, regardless of income. Please note sliding scale and lower cost options may only be available online.

New Client Session (90 minutes) with *email follow-up: $140
Follow-up Sessions (75 minutes) with *email follow-up: $100
*What is email follow-up? A coaching session is only 75 minutes long; therefore the majority of the work you will do happens in between sessions. You will be applying the concepts, skills and tools from our time together in your daily life. This is where the real healing happens! Follow up from sessions is a MAJOR part of my coaching model. After each session, you will receive a detailed email reviewing what we covered and instructions for how to apply it before we meet again. Those who benefit the most from coaching are doing work daily between sessions and keeping in contact with me. I welcome and encourage my clients to ask questions, give updates on how they are doing, give me feedback, and ask for more or different resources, skills and tools.
