Noticing the definition above, would being more resilient be a useful skill to develop and strengthen for yourself? Our Resiliency Coach can help! Mark can teach you skills and habits that will allow you to move past surviving, into thriving.

Mark LoPalo is trained in how to heal our nervous system with several different modalities integrated from his work as a yoga & meditation teacher, wellness coach, Reiki Master, sound therapy practitioner, equine coaching specialist and lifelong learner about resiliency. 

Mark has utilized these modalities and skills to repair his own nervous system from traumas. He’s also helped many other clients wanting respite from chronic stress, exhaustion, anxiety, poor sleep & unhealthy patterns/coping.

What affects our resiliency? 

When we experience anything that overloads our capacity to handle what is in front of us, we can become dysregulated.  Our nervous system starts to prepare us to survive, rather than thrive. 

Our nervous system chooses to go into Fight, Flight, or Freeze when it senses our environment (internal or external) is unsafe.  Our system automatically goes into one of these 3 responses-in a way that is typically beyond our control. Many of us can cycle through, or even stay in, these 3 states most of our day, without even realizing it.

The Fight response may look like: increased irritability, anxiousness, anger, noticing what’s wrong, aggression, panic. 

The Flight response may show up as: wanting to disconnect, leaving early, wanting to move or change things a lot, anxiety, addiction. 

The Freeze response can look like: depression, low energy, apathy, poor boundaries, dissociation. 

Having our nervous system exist in any of these 3 responses (and there’s a few more) causes damage emotionally, physically, and mentally. It’s exhausting.

We can learn to notice when our nervous system is getting activated, and learn tools & practices to intervene, and find calm again.

How does Resiliency Coaching work?

In your sessions you’ll practice tools to create the valuable trait of resilience. You can have more flexibility in your responses, less stress, and more resiliency to “bounce back” when life throws you a curveball. 

With these practices, you can handle life from a place of compassion for yourself and others around you. Most importantly, you can learn to access inner resources and strengths you didn’t even know you had.

If you are currently in therapy, increasing your resiliency can allow faster progress on your therapeutic goals. Mark will collaborate with you and your therapist to supercharge your work and compliment the healing process. 

These tools take minutes a day to practice and easily become part of your life. You learn how to bring your nervous system back into balance. Thrive in a state of flow and ease with your life and the people around you!
