The Coaching in Practice

How it works

After our initial contact, where you share with me (Anna) your wishes and expectations, we begin with a first longer coaching session (ideally 1,5 hours). Hereafter, each session can be anything between 30 minutes to several hours depending on your needs and preferences. I work with a unique and holistic process (called Into Essence), and may use various different modalities (such as Body Wisdom, EFT Tapping, Voice Dialogue, and the Enneagram). You will notice postive changes after only one session, but if you seek lasting and profound changes, it is often a good idea to have two sessions or more. Welcome to have a free 20 minutes’ call via Zoom, to learn more about the coaching!

Where we meet

As a rule, all coaching sessions are made via Zoom or phone. Zoom enables us to see each other’s faces, which can provide a more nuanced experience. Sometimes, however, it can be easier to meet over the phone to set aside the visual impressions so more easily focus on your emotions and physical sensations.

If you do wish to meet physically, we will try to find a quiet place outdoors, for example in a park or garden, in Stockholm. If you live outside Stockholm, the coaching will always take place via Zoom or phone.

NOTE: From January 2021, all calls are made via Zoom or telephone, until further notice.

How often we meet

How often we meet is up to you. You are always welcome to email or call spontaneously, and we will book a time that suits you.

If you know in advance that you want three or more calls, we can set up a plan, where the coaching takes place regularly, for example each or every second week. This gives you a more favorable total price.

Regardless of how you choose to set up the coaching over time, we will always take into account all important pieces of the puzzle, ie your beliefs, thought patterns, emotions, important experiences (including trauma), and any physical symptoms.

How much it costs

The following prices are for sessions via Zoom or phone.*

Standard price: 800 SEK/hour

Try it out, one hour: 600 SEK/hour**

**After special agreement beforehand. Only for the first hour.

Our Main Coaching Methods

Into Essence

Anna’s unique set of methods for identifying limiting beliefs and releasing energies, suppressed emotions, tensions and pain.

We all have an almost infinite number of beliefs, most of which operate at the subconscious level. The most important of these concern our Self, i.e. what we should be, do, and have in order to be worthy of love, attention, etc. Limiting beliefs can be formulated as a “belief set” or “a polarity between resistance and attachment”. This polarity creates tensions on the mental, emotional, and physical planes, which may eventually lead to chronic pain etc. To release these tensions, we need to identify the core limiting beliefs, the original wounding event(s), the reinforcing situation(s), the central fear, etc. Herafter, we can transform these beliefs in a way that brings allowance and surrendering, and lets go of past resentments and future worries. Now, we enable the mind shift that opens up for new experiences in life.

EFT Tapping

A method for releasing emotional build-up, energetic blockages and physical tensions, and healing from chronic pain. 

“Tapping, also known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), is a powerful holistic healing technique that has been proven to effectively resolve a range of issues, including stress, anxiety, phobias, emotional disorders, chronic pain, addiction, weight control, and limiting beliefs, just to name a few. Tapping therapy is based on the combined principles of ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. Tapping with the fingertips on specific meridian endpoints of the body, while focusing on negative emotions or physical sensations, helps to calm the nervous system, rewire the brain to respond in healthier ways, and restore the body’s balance of energy.” Sourced from here.

Your Personality’s Role

Two personality frameworks for understanding your personality, including your needs, challenges, fears, strengths and preferences.

To gain a deeper understanding of your needs, preferences and challenges, we use two well-known personality type systems: The Enneagram and Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

The Enneagram builds on universal wisdom synthesized from many spiritual and religious traditions. It presents nine personality types, each with its unique set of characteristics. Although each of us holds some characteristics from all types, there is one particular type that is most representative to us. The Enneagram aims to inspire self-inquiry, personal growth, and also greater compassion for others.

Key Elements of the Process

Sense the body

An important part of the healing process is to allow ourselves to sense our body fully. In our coaching, you will be supported to go deeper into your body to recognize and experience any sensations that you may hold, such as pain, tensions, heaviness, and/or energetic sensations. For this purpose, we will use a process called BodyWisdom, which includes mindful breathing.

Feel the feelings

Another key element for healing is to be able to feel fully all emotions in your body, especially those that may have been avoided or suppressed. Thus, you will here be guided and supported to recognize and feel any emotions present in your body, such as anxiety, sadness, anger, guilt, or shame. Here we primarily use a unique process called Into Essence and/or EFT tapping.

Find core beliefs

A third element is to identify any underlying subconscious beliefs and thought patterns that together contribute to your unpleasant emotions and bodily sensations. Here, we seek to identify any core beliefs, triggering events, reinforcing situations, resistances and attachments, as well as coping and avoidance strategies, that together cause suffering and hold you back in life.

Shift the beliefs

Once we have identified your limiting beliefs and thought patterns, you will be guided on a journey into your subconscious mind through a unique method called Inner Journey. Here, you will be able to heal painful memories, transform relationships, and shift limiting beliefs into new empowering ones. This will bring you a new sense of freedom, self-love, confidence, and joy in life.

Full integration

Lastly, you will be supported to integrate and anchor your new beliefs, emotions, bodily sensations, transformational experiences, and new insights as part of your life. For this, we will use various modalities, such as affirmations, meditation techniques, and/or body excercises. This will help you to embody the essence of your healing process even further.

An Overall Perspective

Let Go

When we seek deep and lasting healing or significant changes in our lives, it is important that we let go of any limiting beliefs that keep us stuck and cause unnecessary suffering. Most of our beliefs are formed in early childhood, and together act as filters through which we experience life. While some beliefs serve us well by empowering us in our day-to-day situations, others limit us by constraining how we express our selves, interact with the world, and respond to new opportunities. Limiting beliefs can be felt as emotional stress, physical discomfort, or both. When we let go of such beliefs and replace them with new empowering ones, we can begin to transform in amazing ways.

Let Be

Living a fulfilled life also requires that we accept things as they are, without judgement, in particular those parts that we cannot (presently) change. We must first surrender to “what is” and let all things be, no matter how painful they feel right now. By fighting a condition, it will only cling to us even stronger, making it a more significant part of our lives. In contrast, by accepting it as it is, it will eventually start to fade in importance and even vanish completely. But even if a condition prevails, it will no longer have the same impact on us. The most effective way to reach acceptance is to practice acts of forgiveness, compassion and gratitude, for example through meditation.

Let In

Personal fulfillment and good health are more easily maintained when we are able to see and let in those precious moments and miracles in our everyday lives. An everyday moment may be enjoying coffee with a dear friend, having a walk in prestine nature, or listening to your favorite music. Likewise, it is important that we recognize the good-intential gestures of others. The act of receiving can too easily be overlooked; yet, cherishing other people’s “gifts” is just as important as giving ourselves, as it makes the other person feel appreciated while honoring our self-worth. Lastly, precious moments are more easily found when we listen to our inner truth and let in self-love.

Let Out

For us to feel happy, free and confident, we need be able to let out our feelings in a spontaneous and joyful way without fear or limitations. As humans, we are born with an inherent desire to express our emotions, both positive and negative, and to communicate with our environment. If for some reason we were taught as children that expressing ourselves in certain ways was unsafe or inappropriate, we gradually learn to shut down. Some parts of our essence will hence be supressed, which later may impact our life quality and personal development. Yet, clearing such beliefs and blockages can be successfully done, e.g. with our own process “Into Essence“.
