Welcome to Life Connected! I am so glad that you are here! You are visiting the website for the private practice of Anne Cowardin. I am a licensed psychologist, “heart-centered” hypnotherapist and transpersonal coach. So whether you are looking to heal Posttraumatic stress, anxiety, confusion about your relationships or life direction or just looking to maximize the amazing life that is yours, It would be my privilege to be your guide on this journey.
My mission is to support your experience of deep connection to yourself, your purpose, those you love and care for and to have you meet your world each day with presence and spontaneity emotionally, mentally and spiritually!
My practice integrates sound psychological principles of human development and behavior with over twenty years of psychotherapy practice, training and consulting. In addition, recent practice and research has substantiated the importance and effectiveness of the integration of body-mind-spirit methods such as relaxation, visualization, movement, and hypnotherapy into traditional practices in mental health.
I believe that each of us carries a dream within us. Our dream may have become buried beneath the traumas of our upbringing, the demands and expectations of others or the need to focus on survival in these modern, complex days. Maintaining connection to our deepest wisdom can be difficult or seem impossible when our values and sense of true self become compromised by what our culture has defined as important. Results can range from subtle discontent and discomfort to living too much with significant levels of anxiety or depression. You may be here because you are experiencing blocks to being able to create the life that you desire.
Together, we will look at the strengths you bring to bear to the process of therapy or coaching. In addition, by having support for learning to relax, loving yourself and learning to listen to the voice within that speaks your wisdom, you will know what is best for you. Through healthy breathing, deep relaxation, guided imagery, body movement and healing emotional “wounds,” your sense of awareness and connection to yourself will improve. This can open you to deeper connections in your life.
Along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to examine your values and principles for living in the presence of deep listening. Using your values as a standard for decision-making and action develops a deep appreciation for who you are and how you best operate. This opens the way to growing deeply into the person you are meant to be.
Reaching deeply into ourselves to recapture our dreams and realize them is a life task for us. As Paul Coelho states in his tale, The Alchemist, “…There is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, its because the desire originated in the soul of the universe. It is your mission on earth.”
I’d be privileged to support your healing and rediscovery of that is authentically you. That is a life connected!
