The Neuroscience of Breathing for Coaches

Suzanne Henwood & Sarah Carruthers

2023 Conference

Breathing is the key to accessing the body, to aligning the body and to working directly with physiology and neurology. We believe that as a coach, working with the whole person, a thorough understanding of the breath is an essential part of your tool kit and weaving NLP into that further enhances that process.    

Using key research, neuroscience and practical experience, we will bring you a workshop that: 

(i)Shares the key theory and research underpinning breathwork in coaching  

(ii)Offers a practical tool box of breathing practices and applications that you will be able to use immediately.    

Breathing is the single most important act we do every day.  We can go without food for three weeks, three days without water but only two to three minutes without breathing. Perhaps because we can’t see it; or it’s hard to feel; or maybe because it is so universal and automatic; or because it’s the oldest, most basic thing we do every day… most of us haven’t considered how inefficiently we breathe.  In fact it is reported that up to 90% of people breathe sub-optimally.    

This is surprising, as breathing is a gateway between the body and mind; a physical, mental and spiritual practice. We believe using breathing as the basis to regulate and access the body then, is an essential component of all coaching and we would love you to come and join us to explore this in our session.
