Madeline Wade is a master somatic coach. She is authentic and truly has had the most profound impact on my life. I reached out to Madeline two years ago because I was struggling with work issues, stress, unease, and physical tension which I found were taking a toll on my physical and emotional well-being. She encouraged me first to look at my old story, that is, where I came from, and to begin building a new story.
From the very first session, Madeline created a safe and welcoming space for me to explore my feelings. Her expertise in somatic therapy and her compassionate approach made me feel seen, heard, and understood in a way that truly allowed me to delve deeply into my life’s experiences. Often her sessions included powerful, yet peaceful bodywork which enhanced the feelings of belonging and centeredness.
Through our work together, Madeline helped me to notice what was happening in my body – not thinking but feeling – and to gain a deeper awareness of my body and the way it responds to stress and conflict. Madeline taught me a range of techniques to be present and release tension, including centering practices, breathing exercises, and visualization practices. She has also helped me be more mindful and self-compassionate, which has added joy and delight to my daily life.
Thanks to Madeline’s guidance and support, I have experienced vast improvement in my physical and emotional well-being. I hear her soothing voice daily reminding me to stay present and grounded, and I feel more empowered to manage stress and challenging situations in my daily life. I am also more attuned to my body’s needs and able to take better care of myself. I am finally not only aware of my feelings, but I am no longer afraid to feel them thanks to Madeline!
I highly recommend Madeline to anyone seeking to deepen their self-awareness. She is a loving and intuitive coach. I am now a more present and loving spouse, teacher, family member, and friend, all thanks to my coach, Madeline.
