Angela Marie, Coach

From personal experience, SafeSpace‚ĄĘ has been so transformative in allowing me to better understand how unhealed trauma has kept me from becoming fully me. As a coach, I can‚Äôt imagine helping lead other women into their greatness without knowing how to provide the love & safety needed to support them in their own healing journey through this work.

Mandy Harvey, Holistic Nutritional Practitioner

I worked with SafeSpace‚ĄĘ after I started to realize that my clients weren‚Äôt reaching sustainable transformations as a result of their trauma - specifically their trauma related to nourishing themselves. I wasn‚Äôt fully prepared to help them work through the root of their chronic health issues. This program has given me the tools that I need to hold my clients in a safe space where they can acknowledge and heal their trauma. Facilitation is amazing, Melissa and her team do a wonderful job of modeling what it‚Äôs like for a coach to hold safe space and compassion. I highly recommend it to all nutritional therapists and coaches. There‚Äôs so many people operating from a place of trauma.

Autumn Bensette, coach

As a coach who has been through my own trauma within the personal development & coaching industry, it was so important to me as I‚Äôm going out into the world to do coaching that I‚Äôm actually leaving my clients better than when they met me. I am so grateful to have the tools I learned from SafeSpace‚ĄĘ and really embody somatic healing. To feel seen, heard and ultimately transform at the absolute root cause. I highly highly suggest it this work. Every single coach should be trauma informed and should infuse the work SafeSpace‚ĄĘ teaches into every part of their business, sales and marketing. If you feel called you should take the leap, you will not be disappointed.
