In transition? Wondering which way to go…Wondering how to integrate some profound experiences you have had?
Or, how to safely get where you want to go?

Coaching supports you to achieve these kinds of goals.

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a partnership that maximizes human potential. It is life-changing, world-changing work.

Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment.” —from the International Coach Federation

How is Coaching different from Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy frequently focuses on the past and on healing psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, phobia, trauma, destructive behaviors and addiction. Coaching is primarily learning and action-oriented, moving people toward the fulfillment of their life purpose, dreams, and goals. Coaches regularly refer clients to psychotherapists and other mental health professionals for issues that are better suited to a therapeutic relationship.”— a quote from Leadership that Works

IMHU’s certified Spiritual Emergence Coaches® are trained to share experiences and resources in a safe, supportive, inclusive and welcoming environment.  Most of IMHU’s trained coaches have lived experience with spiritual emergency and spiritual emergence phenomena, aka spiritual awakening.  Some are qualified to specifically help also with integrating psychedelic and/or plant medicine experiences.

Our coaches create a safe place for people to share their own experiences.  We are not focusing on diagnosis or pathologizing.  Instead, we focus on appreciating the diversity of experiences people can have as they integrate the fullness of who they are.  Sharing in a non-judgmental environment and connecting with others who are in spiritual emergence is tremendously healing and inspiring for everyone.  Our coaches are trained to perceive and appropriately refer when a person they are working with has needs for psychotherapy or a 24-hour care facility.
